The Proposal – Part 2 (The Pictures)

Heidi did a great job describing the incredible night we were engaged in my previous post.  Below is a small glimpse into that night, with a short journey through the night in pictures.  It was a night of joy and tears (the good kind)…I feel so blessed to get to marry such an amazing girl!

(Special thanks to Drew Horne, Brian Lippert and Rich Jones for taking pictures and capturing video of this exciting night!)

This is the beginning of the carriage ride at PPG Plaza in Downtown Pittsburgh.

Heidi and I riding through the streets of Pittsburgh in the carriage.

Our friend, Sarah Calcara, giving Heidi her first 3 roses.

Our friend, Dawn Meling, giving Heidi her 3 roses.

Our friend, Pam Mikec, waiting for the carriage to stop to give Heidi her 3 roses.

Just after our friend, Shelley Allen, gave Heidi her roses and right before our friends, Sarah & Justin Liptak, gave Heidi their roses.

Here are the final set of roses waiting for Heidi and I to arrive at the outlook on Mt. Washington.

Here’s a close-up of the roses and rose petals.

Heidi and I finally arrived.  Here we are chitchatting away!

Here’s a good shot of the view we had from our outlook…not too bad!

Yes, that’s me down on one knee proposing to Heidi!

Here’s the big proposal moment…Heidi said yes!


Welcome to the new site! It’s been an ongoing work in progress for the last month, but I’m glad to finally be here!! Look around and check things out. This new site now has a number of cool features:

  • Along the top of the page you’ll see a number of different pages. Those include information about myself , different blogs I read and other links, a page for Nick Poole Graphics, and a page with free resources for pastors & churches.
  • Also, on the right side of the page you’ll see a posting calendar. That is a calendar of all my posts ever. Yep, I’ve importated all the posts from “A Poole of Thoughts.”

I’ll continue to be adding things, but I hope you like the new place. If there is something you would like to see, just leave a comment! With that said, welcome to!!
