We would like to congratulate Mike & Jill on their engagement! We loved their engagement story so much, we wanted to share it with you.
“Our engagement story starts a few months ago actually. I saw a ring online that I liked and showed it to Mike, not thinking much of it. It turns out that he purchased the ring that night! The way the ring was laid out wasn’t really my style, so Mike took it to Kranich’s to have it reset in a design he imagined. From what he tells me, the staff was very eager to help him with the redesign because it was such a gorgeous stone that wasn’t being shown off as well as it could.
Fast-forward a few months, and it’s a Sunday night. Mike and I are in our living room watching television, and I could tell he was being a little strange. He was sitting all the way across the room and said he didn’t want to come sit on the couch with me. Honestly, I thought he was mad!
As we were watching TV, my phone lit up. I’m a social media marketer, so my phone is always lighting up, but I took a look at it anyway. It said I had a new follower on Instagram, so I opened it up. The account’s name was @meyouandlou. It turns out, Mike had created that account (our dog’s name is Louie), and uploaded about 50 photos from our relationship. There were photos from trips we had taken, photos of our favorite dinners we had made, and even our new home we just bought together. He was telling our story through the captions, too. The last photo said “But there’s just one thing left to do…” And when I read that, Mike got down on one knee and proposed!
Our ring is a 3.04 yellow diamond surrounded by two trillion cut diamonds and halos of round diamonds. We thank the team at the North Atherton Kranich’s for helping Mike design such a lovely ring!”
