At Forever Artisans, we feature real life stories to inspire your custom design. This is the true story of how Nick and Cassie designed their dream engagement ring.
HOW DID YOU MEET?
In November of 2017, in Wilmington, NC, my roommate and her roommate at the time introduced us to each other at a small party.
TELL US YOUR PROPOSAL STORY
The original plan was to surprise her at a vineyard in the NC mountains, but due to the Coronavirus, I had to shake it up. My options became: Postpone or change location and scrap months of planning. I chose the latter. On two days’ notice, I told her mom that I still wanted to do it the same weekend, and we began to brainstorm. She said she could find a spot in the woods and dress it up really well and I thought that sounded nice. I had my aunt make a chalkboard sign, and the winery made a custom bottle. Her mom told her we were going to take family pictures in nice places out in the woods on their property. She was totally surprised.
WHERE DID THE INSPIRATION FOR THE RING DESIGN COME FROM?
This was one of the rings on her Pinterest board. A few subtle hints pointed to this one in particular.
DID WE MEET ALL OF YOUR EXPECTATIONS
Absolutely! It was better than I could have imagined.
I loved working with Forever Artisans! Missy was great throughout the entire process. It was super fun and awesome to see what they can do. I would recommend Forever Artisans to anyone engagement ring shopping!
