Engagement Stories

Engaged! Michael and Jessica

Dec 3, 2013

On Friday, October 25, 2013, Michael made a stop into our store to pick up his future wife’s engagement ring.  It was my fifth day with Samuelson’s Diamonds and I had stopped into our downtown retail location to observe the store.  I remember seeing Michael pick up the ring and then tweeted about how sweet it was knowing that he would be proposing soon.

On November 2, 2013, Michael popped the question to his girlfriend, Jessie. He told Jessie they were “going to dinner” around 5 PM on a Saturday night. They headed over to a place in Fed Hill and walked on the Harbor Walk promenade along the water. As they approached the Ritz Carlton and Harbor View homes, he stopped her at a final turning point, said a little speech, told her they were not going to dinner and proposed.

After celebrating her agreement to his proposal, he revealed to Jess that a mutual friend videotaped the entire event and he came and took a few pictures. After this Michael and Jessie headed back to his apartment for a final surprise. Both of the couple’s families and friends were waiting for them at Michael’s apartment, and everyone celebrated the happiest day of the couple’s lives to date.

Everyone at Samuelson’s has to agree that Michael did an excellent job on both the ring and the proposal. He chose a 14kt white gold diamond halo engagement ring with a princess cut diamond and couldn’t have picked a more perfect backdrop, the Inner Harbor. The extra touch of having someone videotape and take photos of the proposal is such a fantastic idea. This way the moment he popped the question was still intimate and only between the two of them, but they will always have the video and pictures to re-live that special moment.

The couple will be busy with wedding planning over the next year – they are getting married November 8, 2014 in Seabrook, SC.  Congratulations Michael and Jessica from all of us at Samuelson’s Diamonds!
