- Wedding: September 2014
Hi everyone I’m Ashley -25 from Wisconsin!!! I just got engaged at Christmas time and am soo excited to start planning!!
My fiance Tim-23, proposed to me on Christmas eve at my parents house durning our Christmas eve party!! This was planned between him and my parents. We had been ring shopping and I picked one that I liked but it was a surprise when, where, how I would get it. So Christmas eve after everyone was finished opening presents my mom asked me to gather the wrapping paper and take it out to the kitchen by the trash. When I retuened to the living room There was a large box in my seat…A gift from Tim. I opened the box to find a smaller red cyliner shaped box that said “let christmas bells ring once” with a little jingle bell attached. Inside that box was another with another jingle bell saying “let Christmas bells ring twice!” inside…another box with “let Christmas bells ring 3 times!” and another bell….now here where it gets good inside that box was, a ring box! with a note on top saying “let wedding bells ring forever” and in the ring box , my beautiful engagement ring with a note saying “will you marry me?” I of coarse was ready to cry but tried holding back my tears,lol I hate crying infront of people and we had about 14 people in the room!! So I gave my hunny a kiss and said yes!!!
Here are some picks of my beautiful ring, I’ve gotten alot of mixed comment on it because it isnt traditional, but I love it!!! See my birthstone is a diamond and I just really dont care for them, when I was trying on engagement rings they all just looked like a birthstone ring.
I really liked the idea of a blue stone so when the jeweler helping us showed me a london blue topaz I fell in love with it!! I actually shed a few tears when I was trying it on and they were tell my fiance all about the ring and lifetime warranty being able to pass it on to our children someday. I knew it was the one its a 18k white gold ring with a 9mm cushion cut london blue topaz with 10 small diamonds going down each side of the ring!!!
So thats my story and my ring please let me know what you think!!!- Ashley
