Rudy and Jessenia Visit Seattle in Style

Jessenia loves Seattle and has told Rudy many times that she wants to ultimately move and live in Seattle. As the two currently live in Texas, Rudy knew he wanted to pop the question on their vacation to Seattle.

There’s no greater view of the Seattle Skyline than at Kerry Park – the location to their surprise proposal. Rudy and Jessenia arrived to Kerry Park and grabbed a seat on one of the benches. Much to Jessenia’s shock and hesitation, a guitarist came over and asked them to follow him. The guitarist led them to a portion of the park where dozens of candles were set up along with garland along the park railing. With the sun currently setting, it created a magical light over the place. The guitarist then began serenading Jessenia and Rudy. Rudy got down on one knee and asked Jessenia to marry him.

She said YES 0f course! Jessenia then was handed the most beautiful bouquet with all of her favorite flowers. After lots of sunset photos, Rudy and Jessenia took off in a limo headed to dinner to celebrate their new engagement!

The two plan on having a September 2017 wedding! Congrats Rudy and Jessenia!

Nathan + Michaela’s Sweet Proposal

We were SO honored to be able to bring together Nathan’s dream proposal to his beautiful girlfriend, Michaela. I think we were just as anxious and excited as he was when they walked into the Mansion minutes before the big moment! Nathan had told her they were going to an art show at the classic Mansion on Turtle Creek, but when they turned the corner for the “art show”, Michaela was greeted by a guitarist, flower lined path, and a bigger surprise than she could’ve imagined! Afterwards, they enjoyed a private dinner on the terrace- so romantic! We loved the intimacy of the proposal, thoughtful details that went into making this proposal so special, and of course the fact that they will have these photos by Charla Storey to remember this day forever!!  Cheers to Nathan + Michaela!

Because there is an APP for that!

Posted by Victoria Rellas 

Whether you are racking your brain for sneaky ways to figure out her ring size, or have no idea on where to start with engagement ring size or shape, there is an app for that! Unlike the ring you will be purchasing for your fiancé, the Tiffany’s Engagement Ring Finder App is absolutely free!

We love the idea of surprising your fiancé with a ring, but it’s it might be smart to get some input from her before you make the big decision! Have some fun with your girl “trying on” different styles and sizes.  You can put the rings together with wedding bands, looking forward to that exciting future! Once you have an idea of her style, then you can ultimately take care of it yourself!

The app even allows you to take a picture of her left hand, then have some fun trying on different rings and settings! She will LOVE it!

And for the ultimate trick, borrow one of her rings that would fit her ring finger, and use the app to determine the size you will need by simply placing the ring against your iPhone and matching the size! No more stealing one of her rings, or making educated guesses…How useful is that!

Have some fun with the app and then call us to help set up an unforgettable proposal!
