Torrie and Brent Real Engagement Story

Written by    Last updated: August 22, 2006

Brent came up from college, normally a six hour drive, through an ice storm to surprise me (and I thought I would be spending Valentine’s Day at home moping and watching chick flicks with my mom!) I did a quick change into a formal dress and he took me out to a very nice dinner. Following the meal we agreed to go home. On the way back, Brent just decided maybe we should drive around and chat for a while. He suggested we go up to Grandview Drive and look down at the city in the snow. It was a beautiful scene, much like a DeBeer’s Diamond commercial. We stood on the hill and he wrapped his arms around me to keep me warm. As we looked through the mist to the city lights below, and the snow glistened all around us, he told me how much he loved me, how much I meant to him, and that he wanted to be with me for the rest of his life. Then he said, “Which is why I’m going to do this”. As he knelt down on one knee in the snow, he said, “Torrie Turner Jones,” and I said, “Brent Thomas Cone?” He said, “Will you marry me?” and I said, “I would love to marry you.” Fortunately, he had already asked for my hand in marriage from my mother and brother!
