In the beginnng, I created this blog to document all our exciting adventures and decisions as we plan our wedding. I want to document every detail leading up to the big day, and I often wondered if there would ever be a humble way to share pictures of my ring. Enter C Mae from Happiness Is... and her "Bling Bling Share Your Ring" linkup. Amazing!
The ring, the night Corey proposed.
My 3-stone beauty all by herself!
Our wedding photographer, Allison Stahl, took some amazing pictures of the ring during our engagement shoot.
At the time of our engagement, Corey and I had been together for 9 years. Sure, over the course of our relationship I had pointed out a few rings that I liked, and I even bookmarked pictures of some of my favorite rings on our computer (just in case!) so he had a pretty good idea of what I wanted. I still thought for sure he'd bring at least 1 of my 3 sisters or my mom to go pick one out, but the boy went to the jewler all by himself and picked out the most perfect ring for me.
Funny side note...he was sneaky and took my ruby ring that I wear on my right hand to get my ring size... who knew your writing hand is almost a size bigger than your other hand? Not Corey, and certainly not me! So when I went with him to the jewler to have it sized, I had no clue how he picked out the perfect ring. There were so many and I don't even know if I would be able to pick one for myself! Corey did so good.
While we were there, Corey also let me pick out my bands...
Can't wait to get these amazing bands on our wedding day this summer!
I am still in the honeymoon phase with my ring... I clean her every couple days! Something about the sparkle makes me feel awesome! I do take her off when I shower, cook, and clean because I am paranoid of anything messing it up. When I do take her off, I put her in the beautiful box she came in so I know exactly where she is at all times.
I just realized that I have been referring to my ring as a "she" and "her" this whole post... haha... what can I say? She's my little beauty that will be with me forever!
Thank you, Corey for finding me the perfect ring that I am proud and honored to wear every single day.
And thank you, C Mae for the linkup and opportunity to share my ring!
