When Jess Nakrayko of Saskatoon, Canada got hitched last month the last thing anyone expected to see was a proposal but that’s just the way Jess wanted it. In fact, she couldn’t be happier to see her best friend and bridesmaid Jessica Kieley get a ring on her very special day.
Apparently Nakrayko knew that Kieley’s boyfriend Adam Brake had wanted to pop the question so the bride-to-be suggested he do it during the destination wedding in Jamaica. Nakrayko’s sister came up with the idea of instead of throwing the bouquet, the bride just handing it to Kieley, with Adam then getting down on one knee to propose, and the bride loved the idea, noting, “we just lost it.”
- While some brides may not have been so selfless as to hand over the spotlight to someone else on their big day, for Nakrayko it was the least she could do for her friend who “poured herself” into all the wedding planning, adding that it was her way of saying “thank you.”
- Needless to say the bridesmaid was in shock when it all went down and the bride couldn’t have been happier. “My heart felt like it was bursting with love... It brings me to tears even now thinking about it,” says Nakrayko. “Seeing her face, seeing her literally lose control of her emotions was something I'll never forget.”
- As for why she decided to do it, she explained, “I have love and I want people close to me to have that love too. I don't think that people need to be greedy about love.”
