Sometimes You Just KnowYou know that feeling you get… The one when you get when you just know things are meant to be. That’s exactly how Hanna & Shawn felt on their very first date. For Hanna, she felt as if she was sitting across the table from her best friend, and Shawn says, “I still feel like we’re on our first date… For me, it’s never really come to an end.”
The ProposalHanna admitted she’s a little nosy. She knew something was coming. But, what she didn’t know was how perfectly it would be planned. Shawn put together a special weekend for the two of them the weekend before Hanna’s birthday right around Christmas. Knowing how much the holiday season meant to Hanna, Shawn booked a room at a hotel he knew would be beautifully decorated for Christmas and ended up popping the question in front of “one of the prettiest Christmas trees I’ve ever seen,” said Hanna. Beaming, Hanna said yes!
The Ring: Recreating A Family HeirloomShopping at The Diamond Galleria was a no-brainer for this couple. Hanna had worked at the store previously and felt at home with the team at The Diamond Galleria. Hanna knew she wanted to use a diamond from her grandmother’s ring-- keeping it classic, yet her own style as well. The couple found a mounting together and knew they wanted a custom design for the bands.
Hanna admits that it was actually really hard trying to narrow down exactly what she wanted. Since she had worked at The Diamond Galleria previously, she had witnessed so many other brides picking out very different designs, and she loved them all. “Truly, it’s like I wanted one of everything!” But, because the staff knew Hanna so well, they all pitched in to help make the ring-shopping experience easy and stress-free for the couple. Throughout the entire custom design process, owners Bert and Tyna worked with Hanna to create a ring she would love forever--showing her what would look best with her setting and what truly fit Hanna’s personality.
For this playful couple, and our own Local Love Story Couple, the custom design process was the way to go. The Diamond Galleria treated them like family and showed them how easy and affordable creating your perfect ring can be.
