Blog | Real Proposal Stories: Erich and Alexandra's Greek Islands Engagement
Both designers from opposite sides of the country, Erich and Alexandra met in Washington, D.C. in 2005. They fell in love and moved to Brooklyn shortly thereafter. Erich and Alexandra describe themselves as "old souls" and travel, good design, and cultural experiences are important to them. When it came time to propose to Alexandra, Erich scoured several jewelry stores in NYC to find the perfect ring. He wanted something that expressed their unique bond and that Alexandra would appreciate for the exquisite design. Erich found Greenwich St. Jewelers and selected the perfect Single Stone engagement ring. It was handcrafted from rose gold and featured an antique diamond and engraving details. The ring perfectly captured Alexandra's spirit. Now that he had the engagement ring, the proposal could be set into motion. For Alexandra's birthday, Erich crafted a plane ticket that was good for one trip anywhere in the world. Alexandra chose a vacation to Turkey and the Greek Islands. Alexandra's family is from Greece and it is also where her parents met; there could not have been a more perfect place for Erich to propose. On the first day of their weeklong trip, Erich took Alexandra on a sunset walk on the island of Mykonos. The walk ended in a surprise proposal. Alexandra said yes, and the two enjoyed their love-filled vacation together. Two years later, Erich and Alexandra married at The Bell House in Brooklyn, on a concert stage under bright lights, surrounded by their closest family and friends. They couldn't be happier. Congratulations, Alexandra & Erich!
