At Three Brothers Bakery we see newly engaged couples all the time at our three locations and truly enjoy helping them choose their perfect wedding cake. Well, about a week ago, a future groom asked us to help him with this most special moment, which took place at our Washington Avenue bakery. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most of us never actually witness a wedding proposal.

The lovely couple shared their experience at Three Brothers Bakery on Yelp and in our memory book, so we will let them tell their story!

From Yelp:

I actually proposed to my girlfriend (now fiancée) at this location!

I had a custom cake made, and Jasmine was very pleasant to work with in getting that done.  We ran through some ideas, and went back and forth for a little bit.  She listened to what I wanted, and provided helpful suggestions.  The total cost of the cake was a little more than what I had planned on it being, but not outrageously expensive.

Everyone from the owner, to the bakery staff, to the PR people were awesome throughout the entire process.  My friend and I came here a couple days before our proposal to scope out the place and fill in the staff about our plan.  They were extremely receptive and nice!  The Washington bakery is also very aesthetically pleasing.  It’s large, clean, and is nicely decorated (I especially like the giant gingerbread man).  It seems like a good place to grab some coffee and get some work done, as I saw a few people doing that.

On the big day, my friend and I arrived there a few minutes early and were warmly greeted by the entire staff.  They put the cake out on display in hopes that my fiancee would see it.  When she arrived, I went into hiding.  The staff gave her a small tour of the bakery and then finally led her to the engagement cake.  I came out, got down on one knee and well…she’s now my fiancée.

From our Memory Book at the Washington Avenue location:

“Thank you so much for letting Jen and I have this special moment in your bakery. Everyone was so nice and accommodating, and I could not have asked for more. The cake and proposal were exactly as I imagined it would be. We will remember this day forever, and we are happy we could share it with Three Brothers Bakery!”
