Engagement Stories

Engaged! Stephanie & Bryan

Apr 24, 2014

Stephanie and Bryan have been engaged for sometime now, but in honor of them finally tying the knot this weekend, we had to share their adorable engagement story.  Not only did Stephanie end up with a gorgeous ring from Samuelson’s Diamonds, she also has the sweetest proposal story to tell … which works out well – she LOVES telling stories (according to Bryan, who thinks she could talk for days).  Enjoy!

Bryan & Stephanie

Stephanie came home on December 21, 2012 (12/21/12) from an awful day at work. Surprisingly she walked into their home to a ton of lit candles on their first floor and dimmed lights, but her first words to Bryan were “Did we get a package from Cali?” in which he stammered “um I think so, I didn’t go and get it.” And of course she darted out the door to go fetch it. Stephanie proceed to open their Christmas gifts from Cali, taking well over a half an hour, so once she was through, Bryan said “I got you something to wear out tonight, I put it in your stocking” I lovingly retort back “MY stocking? We picked specific stockings? You know those are just for decoration, and frankly, I think we need to buy new ones anyways.” Stephanie is pretty sure Bryan wanted to kill her at this point. He said “JUST GO IN THE STOCKING WITH THE PENGUIN ON IT!”

Stephanie’s three stone halo style engagement ring

So she did and pulled out 2 handfuls of pink rose petals. She started to feel herself getting light headed when she realized her hand was enclosed around a very obviously sized jewelry box and she thought “if these are earrings, so help me Jesus.” It wasn’t earrings this time … she turned to find Bryan on one knee, and the rest is blissful history! She screamed when she saw how perfect and gorgeous the ring was (and we have to agree, Bryan selected an excellent ring).

12/21/12 is a date Stephanie and Bryan are sure to remember forever, and good thing the Mayans were wrong and the world in fact did not end:)

A 12/21/12 Engagement

Bryan and Stephanie are getting married on April 26, 2014 at a church right here in Baltimore followed by a reception at Silo Point. Congratulations to you both from everyone here at Samuelson’s Diamonds. We wish you a lifetime of happiness.
