Engagement ring now on finger!!
« on: September 23, 2008, 11:46:08 PM »
Hi all...I hope everyone is having a great week!

I wanted to let everyone know that my Mr. Wonderful proposed on Saturday night with the most beautiful DBL ring EVER!! Ok, so it is the first and only DBL creation that I have seen up close and personal, but it has to be the most beautiful. I am so terrible, I don't have pictures yet (I think David took some that he will post) but I will try to get a few soon and post them here.

It was the sweetest proposal. Very simple, nothing fancy, but everything he told me before he asked me to marry him was what every woman hopes to hear some day...from the one who actually means what he says! It was a private moment shared by just the two of us and it was perfect.

Everyone is just mesmerized by my ring...and I can't keep my eyes off of it! We went to dinner after the proposal and through the entire meal I just stared at it.

I could not be more blessed, or more ecstatic then I am right now.

Thank you to everyone at DBL...I don't know who the master craftsman was that worked his/her magic on this beautiful gem, but I am truly amazed. You have a most amazing gift!

We are planning a December 6 wedding...yes THIS year! So, any wedding advice would be totally accepted and appreciated!

This has been such a wonderful experience!

Best wishes ezellad! 

We are so happy that you are in love --and your husband-to-be sounds like a nice guy too.
( totally kidding). 

and here's a tip for you...if anyone can help you with planning a spectacular wedding on short notice it's Trinkette. I'd ask her for some advice...let me see if I can find those threads. I'll be right back.

Congratulations!

 :bigclap:

My (highly unpopular) advice on the wedding is: Keep It Simple. It's about the two of you, not the rest of the universe.

Congratulations Ezellad!

Oh my gosh is that you in the picture?  You are gorgeous and you look SO very happy.   :4:

Thanks djm for posting the pictures.

Actually, Trinkette is too shy to say so herself (yeah, right... :1224:), but that's her, not Ezellad.

Here's a couple of quick shots I snapped before we shipped...




This is one gorgeous Engagement Ring/Wedding band combo.
Stupid me I did not photograph them together- but it's a perfect fit!

Thank you David for posting the pics...however, they do not do this gorgeous ring justice! I am telling you, it is by far the most beautiful piece of jewelry in the universe!

Thank you all so much for the congrats and best wishes. You guys are so great!

BTW I wish that were me in the picture, but I am afraid it is not. I believe that gorgeous lady is Trinkette.

I will keep you all posted and share pics when it is said and done.

Thanks again!

My only advice comes from something I didn't do.  I got pictures but no video.  I am really sorry that I didn't.

Miss Ezellad,

We are marrying in Las Vegas at a chapel in the gazebo area.  Just the 2 of us, we were previously married.  An exciting time, but unlike yours.  I look forward to your event rather than my own since it sounds like this may be your 1st, am I correct?  I only thought my goodness, with a relatively small group such as ours (number of people in the world) how connected our lives are as a group.  Our marriage or re-marriage is only 1 day apart.   How cool is that?  Somehow, I feel connected.

Really Mikla?  What would you have like to used the video for that you may not have considered otherwise?

I would have liked a video because there were parts of the wedding that I missed, like the violinist, pianist, and vocalist who I hired to play at the church.  They were on for a good half hour before I made it down the aisle.  They did play during the ceremony, but they were so good I would have liked to capture all their music on video.  Also, the whole day just went by so fast, I feel I missed a lot of what was going on with the guests and have already forgotten some of the details.  My photo album is really great and I love it.  It just doesn't capture the energy and feeling of the day for me like a video would have.

Mikla

Absolutely!  DH insisted that we hire an excellent videographer, and he was so right.  We watched the video just about every night for the first 6 months or so.  My favorite thing he did was a 5-minute wrap up set to our first dance song.  It is the perfect thing to share with friends without completely boring them.

This is your engagement ring! Holy smokes. I bet you are one happy fiance. That is drop dead and a KILLER color. Is it fancy yellow? Intense yellow?  It is definitely a canary beauty.
