There’s so much that goes into making an engagement ring purchase. From how it matches their personal taste and style to how it fits into your overall budget. But one thing that we think “proposers” often forget to take into account (and hey, no judgment there, making sure the ring hits on their personal style/what you know they’ll always want to wear is always smart thinking) is just how perfectly their ring not only fits their love, but also their unique love and relationship story. What both of you hold dear and what feels like a natural match for your marriage-to-be (bonus points for considering a ring that also tracks with your proposal plans). If you haven’t decided what kind of engagement ring should feature in your/your S.O.’s future, then maybe you can glean some guidance from this gorgeous couple. Her Sylvie Collection ring was a realization of her own jewelry design desires, but also an exceptional tribute to the couple’s own origin story and their extra-special eventual wedding day.
How it all started
According to Ashley, the beautiful bride
“We met at the park in Indianapolis. We had mutual friends and there was an impromptu kickball game for fun. I thought he was so cute! We kept bumping into each other after that day and the rest is HISTORY!”
What he loves and cherishes most about his partner-in-crime
According to Todd, the grateful and gracious groom
“I love Ashley’s smile. Even when her teeth aren’t showing, it’s still the most brilliant and beautiful smile I’ve ever seen. It’s the first thing I noticed about her.”
How the proposal took place
"Todd took me to the park where we met on the first warm day of spring. It has hiking trails and I thought we were going to just walk around with our dog. As soon as we got on the trail, I turned around and he was down on one knee. It was such a wonderful surprise.”
What about the ring made her dreams come true
And we really should say ring(s), because this references both the Sylvie engagement ring and its “ideal match” in a wedding band
“I love the uniqueness of the floral design – it’s not something you see every day. The marquise halo and milgrain make it pop. I chose Sylvie because I love the vintage touch my rings have and that the company is woman-owned."
"I love the softness and romantic look of the rose gold, plus the floral design. It’s modern, yet timeless at the same time. I get compliments on my set all the time.”
And how the wedding day unfolded
Nuptials in nature: A love story
"Todd and I eloped in an adventurous ceremony in the wilderness of Alaska. We hired a photographer and helicopter for the day. The helicopter pilot actually married us. It was the most breathtaking and chilly day of my life. It was a blast!"
The rings read perfectly for these two, right?!
Not only is the floral-inspired engagement ring design a sweet nod to their nature-bound meet-cute, it’s a wonderful complement to Todd’s park-planned proposal. And that modern oval cut center stone, halo of marquise shapes and diamonds + the earthy, ethereal rose gold band are such perfect pairings for Ashley and Todd’s to-be wedding day, what would transpire as an adventurous elopement in the wilderness of Alaska 😍 #swoon.
We’re not saying that your love won’t be blown away by a stunning ring itself, because of course they will. There’s just something so special about an engagement ring that is beautiful, but, at the same time, also incredibly thoughtful and tailored to you as the twosome tying the knot. You will always find that in a Sylvie Collection ring.
