Real Proposal Stories:
Dan and Susy's Manhattan Skyline Proposal
When the time came to propose to his girlfriend of almost four years, Dan was focused on creating the absolute perfect moment. He began this process with the ring.
"I came into the store with an idea for a ring after stalking Susy's Pinterest wedding board," Dan said. Working with our jewelry specialist, Lauren, Dan embarked on a six week journey to create the perfect "show stopper" of a ring. He ended up with a 2.15 carat cushion-cut diamond ring with a pave diamond halo and band from Danhov.
Now that he had the perfect ring, it was time to plan the proposal. Dan and Susy have a tradition of spending Sundays together. They like to call it their "Sunday Funday." Dan surprised Susy with great tickets to see Cinderalla on Broadway, making up a story that he got free tickets from a friend to explain the front row seats. After the show, he wisked Susy away to a romantic dinner in the meatpacking district and planned dessert at Son Cubano in West New York, New Jersey.
On the way to dessert, Dan stopped Susy near a pier overlooking the NYC skyline. He stalled, convincing her that they were waiting for a friend. In the meantime, Dan had tipped off their friends and family of the proposal, and they were hiding in the bushes taking pictures!
As they sat at the pier waiting, Dan gave Susy a book he had made of their relationship. "I made this for our anniversary a few weeks ago, but it didn't arrive in time," he told her.
Susy flipped through the pages, and as she got to the last page, it read:
Will you marry me, Susy, and start a new chapter together?
Thinking that Dan was joking, Susy responded "Oh, that's nice, can't wait for that day to happen!" When she saw Dan get down on one knee, she knew he was serious. Susy said "yes" as they both started to cry and their friends and family rushed out to congratulate them.
Dan and Susy will be married on August 20, 2016.
