I started the day off by sending Laura to the Houstonian to get her nails done (fresh coat of polish is needed when given a shiny ring). At which point I had one of her friends give her the first of many love notes – telling her that another surprise was waiting for her at home. Next, I had her go home to find red rose petals and bouquets everywhere and the next love letter with instructions to get dressed up and be outside for a car service that would transport her to her next destination. Once in the car, the driver turned on a playlist I had made and handed her another note. She was then driven to the first place we met and then to the place we had our first date. At both stops she was given a letter and was also given a binder with the emails we sent back and forth to each other in the beginning. The last stop she was taken to was the place we had our first kiss – “our place” – Bar Boheme. As she walked in through the door I had rose peddles scattered everywhere and got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. She said yes! 😉
One of my favorite parts about the proposal (besides her saying yes) was that the engagement ring I gave her was custom made, one of a kind and absolutely perfect. I wanted to give her a ring that was unique, conflict free and fit her personality and Grayland and Uptown Diamond did just that. As soon as she saw her ring – she fell in love with it!
Before meeting Grayland, I was extremely nervous about finding the perfect ring, for multiple reasons: 1) getting engaged is a really big deal 2) there were so many options and different ways to go and 3) I was worried about finding an LGBT friendly company to work with. Grayland made the entire process smooth, easy and fun! He’ll never know just how much I appreciated his respect and help throughout this process.
For anyone looking to pop the question there are many options out there for what company to go with for your ring but for the best quality and best experience I highly and only recommend Uptown Diamond!
