Friday “Rocks”! featuring Anna Sheffield

I hope you’re as excited as I was when I found this beautiful collection from Anna Sheffield! There is no perfect combination of modern and vintage than these engagement rings! I love the unique detailing and creativity! OBSESSED!

“Unexpected materials come together in inspired combinations, rich with symbolism. Borrowing freely from the worlds of art, fashion and design,  each piece offers a rare juxtaposition. Ceremonial, but not formal. Feminine, but unconventional. Contemporary, but timeless. Every design as unique as the person it adorns.

From the first sketch to the final embellishment, we abide by the highest standards in Fine Jewelry production. Beyond the exceptional quality of each piece, our consideration and care is expressed in a profound commitment to responsible sourcing and sustainable practice. The result: powerful, distinctive jewelry that is luxurious, non-traditional and highly personal.”

Theda Ring

This rainbow moonstone Art Deco style Theda ring glitters with the star quality of it’s namesake, Theda Bara, an actress of the silent film era. The architectural five stone design features an oval center, side stones and two trillions, for a distinctly modern statement. Styled with a Diamond Dusted Curve Band in yellow gold and white diamonds.

Pear Luna Ring

Luna, named for the Moon Goddess, is made in rose gold with a sparkling copper rutilated quartz center, held aloft by an architectural setting featuring a single, white diamond accent.

Oval Bea Ring

The Oval Bea three stone ring features joyful white diamonds set in an A.S. ceremonial signature basket- 10 prongs of mixed flat and delicate round. Trillion shaped white diamonds on each side lead the eye from the perfectly proportioned center to the subtly knife edge band.

Elongated Rosette Ring

Perfect for the girl who fancies symmetry and delicate details, the Elongated Rosette, shown here with a rose cut champagne diamond center stone, with a diamond halo on a delicate half round band. The perfectly adaptable silhouette of the Rosette can be created in an array of Bespoke modifications.

Styled Shoot Turned Fairytale Proposal in Texas

Did you catch our Inspired By This feature a few months ago?  If not, you’re in luck… we’re recapping it all right here!

fairytale proposal in texas

When The Yes Girls were approached with the opportunity to do a set of styled shoots with the best vendors that Texas has to offer, we just couldn’t say no! The team had already chosen the gorgeous couples that would be modeling, so we were left with the fun part… turning a “styled shoot” into a real-life fairytale dream proposal.

Among the couples were long-time love birds, Matt and Jasmin. Since the team originally asked Jasmin to model (who then convinced Matt to come along) we knew it would be the perfect surprise to reach out to Matt and plan our own surprise. When we asked Matt what he loved most about Jasmin, his answer was that he had shared many “firsts” with her. We knew that we had to highlight this detail in an extra special way, so we asked Sarah Ann Design to create a gorgeous calligraphy banner highlighting every memorable “first” in their relationship. This banner reminded us of a scroll out of a story book, and since this proposal would be the start of Jasmin’s happily ever after, we came up with the idea for a fairytale proposal.

The Perfect Proposal Lighting

In the majority of our proposal ideas, you’ll find the words “mood lighting” or “…to give a romantic glow to the space”.  Why? Lighting is everything in a proposal… there’s truly no easier way to set a romantic mood than by creating the right lighting.  You can even replace some of your decor with pretty lighting (it’s basically a two-per), however you cannot replace lighting with decor and still achieve that “WOW!” effect.  There’s a reason that our most popular proposals have bunches of lights, and that’s because it’s aesthetically pleasing to everyone! Read below to see our favorite proposals that utilized good lighting, and where to buy them at home!

Romantic Date Night Planning Package

Here at The YES Girls, our passion is creating moments and memories that will last a lifetime.  We believe that romance should live not only in the extravagant milestones (such as a proposal) but in the everyday moments, as well.  We also know that planning these special moments, even on a smaller scale, can take time that many of us don’t have much of.  So, for our already-engaged, newlywed, married ten years,or everywhere in between, our Date Night Package may be just the thing for you.  We can help you pull together a date night of any scale for any occasion (whether it be birthday, anniversary, or just because).  You can come to us with an idea, OR our creative team can put together two custom ideas highlighting the details of your relationship.

For the date night below, our sweet client wanted one last romantic night with her husband in their house before they moved.  We utilized many items that she already had, as well as purchased a few more pieces to pull it all together.  The two enjoyed a catered dinner from a nearby restaurant, and then watched a movie from the comfort of their adorable tent setup!

Engagement Party Fiesta Decor Featuring Target

Engagement parties are such a fun time to show your personalities and celebrate your love!  Whether the engagement party is weeks after the proposal or immediately after you pop the question, hosting a Fiesta is always a great way to celebrate with family and friends while maintaining a casual atmosphere (and yes, chips and queso and margaritas are a must ;] )  We love Target’s new Opalhouse line, complete with carved-wood figurines and picture frames, rattan, and lots of summery goodness!  For a feel of the South, keep most of the decor neutral woods with different patterns, and add a pop of color with tassels, pillows, and tablecloths.  We recommend sticking with non-primary colors to look a little more chic.  You could even have a cute pinata filled with Ring Pops to play off of the engagement ring!
