wedding details reveal: the ring

20 December 2011
so, j asked me the other day why i never blogged about the insanely gorgeous and sparkly ring he gave me when he proposed. truth is, i absolutely love it, but i didn't want to come across as showy. but hey, i've shared almost everything else about our wedding, so here you are. isn't it amazing? and i am serious when i say he is 100% responsible for the ring. i found out later that he had the setting designed in nyc, got the diamond online, and had it set here in chicago. the fact he put so much thought and time into creating the perfect ring means more to me than diamonds. but i'll certainly take the diamonds too!


and a little update for you...this is where j proposed. you have to know first that i have a thing for gazebos. love them. i think they're so cute and romantic and Lord knows how j found this one, but i was floored. all wraught iron with the beautiful lighted orbs... so dreamy.
