Christmas Tree / Winter Mountain Proposal in Park City, Utah

Christmas Tree Proposal in Deer Valley Utah

Oscar proposed to Kyra on the day after Christmas in Park City, Utah.  Kyra has always dreamed of a “Christmassy” proposal with a Winter-Forest-type feel, and that’s exactly what we delivered! With a total of 11 Christmas trees and bunches of lanterns and glowing lights, paired with the beautiful backdrop of Deer Valley, the proposal truly was a Winter Wonderland!  Custom touches such as calligraphy ornaments and a personalized plaid blanket made the proposal all the more magical!  Congrats to these two love birds… we couldn’t imagine a more magical scene :)

Helicopter Tour and Elaborate Flower Proposal in San Francisco

One of my favorite marriage proposal tips is to make the entire day special (rather than just a moment) and that’s exactly what Hanson had in mind for his proposal to Sarnjit.  While the couple lives close to San Francisco, Hanson doesn’t often get the chance to escape work to play tourist in the city.  He wanted to have an experience that not only brought out their adventurous side, but also felt like Sarnjit was being completely spoiled!  Together, we planned a full day for them around San Francisco, complete with a helicopter ride and lunch reservations at a downtown hotel.  After their meal, their waitress suggested that they watch the Blue Angels (who were in town for the weekend) from the upstairs terrace.  As they entered the room, there were flower carts decorated in Sarnjit’s favorite color, as well as a Marry Me marquee sign.   It’s safe to say that these two had a day they will never forget!  Congratulations Hanson and Sarnjit, we can’t wait to see wedding photos :)

Friday “Rocks!” featuring Joseph Jewelry

It’s that time of year, and love is in the air! What a perfect season to get down on one knee and pop that special question! If you’re still on the hunt for that perfect engagement ring, I found just the place! I absolutely love the delicacy and softness surrounding each piece… so elegant and romantic! OBSESSED!!! Take a look at Joseph Jewelry!

Solitaire Morganite Engagement Ring

The centerpiece of this ring is a 1.44 carat round morganite with a delicate peachy pink color, which was just what the clients requested. It’s set in four rose gold prongs, and the warm tones of the metal really help highlight the lovely shade of the stone. The band is domed and straight across the bottom, and the milgrain detailing starts about half-way up each side. This is also where the filigree begins to open up the surface of the band, although it still maintains roughly the same width until it’s almost to the center setting. At that point, the band begins to widen more dramatically to accommodate the large center setting, and the filigree adjusts to fill this space elegantly as well.

Three Stone Diamond Halo Engagement Ring

The emerald cut diamond provided by the client is 2.62 carats, and it’s held in a four prong platinum setting in the center of a three-stone design. On either side of this gorgeous stone sit trapezoid diamonds, both of which are also prong set and that total 0.55 carats combined. All three stones in the center setting are surrounded by a halo of bright cut set diamonds, and this halo follows the outer contours of each stone, adding a truly glamorous flair to the piece. Round diamonds are also channel set down the shank shoulders, tapering along with the band to perfect fill the space available.

Diamond Halo Engagement Ring

At the top of this ring, a 1.39 carat pear shaped diamond is prong set in 14k yellow gold. Slightly lower down, a contoured halo of split prong set diamonds surrounds this larger stone, adding to its impressive presentation while also sending extra light up onto it to help intensify its shine. The band is straight and narrow, with split prong set diamond accents beginning at about the three-quarter point on each side. From here, they run up in a line to the spot on the shank shoulder where the band splits, about a quarter of the way from the top. The two strands that form here continue up towards the underside of the main setting while angling away from each other, and they hold lines of split prong set diamonds as well.

Antique Style Diamond Engagement Ring

At the top of this ring, a 3.17 carat shield cut diamond is double prong set in 18k white gold. It is a stone the client provided, and we built the ring to highlight its gorgeous cut and sparkle. The shield cut is an older style, and in modern jewelry, diamonds cut in this shape are most often found in the side position of a three-stone setting. The bottom half of this band is straight and flat. It splits just above the half-way point, forming two strands that separate and twist outward slightly as they approach the main setting. This twist in particular helps the band flow smoothly into the prongs holding the center diamond, and it contributes to the graceful lines of the design. Split prong set diamonds begin just before the split on the band, and they continue up both strands all the way up into the main setting. These accents line the cross pieces in the gallery surrounding the lower part of the center stone as well, adding a lovely sparkle and truly glamorous flair. All of these diamonds are lined with milgrain beading as well, which helps enhance the antique overtones of the piece.

Vintage Travel Proposal in New York City

Proposal in Central Park

Taj came to us looking to propose to his long-distance girlfriend, and wanted to highlight the many places they have made memories together over the years.  A gorgeous gold arch covered in greenery and flowers displayed 5 gold and cream globes, each showing a city or country that’s meaningful in their relationship.  We also found these adorable vintage hat boxes to play off of Jasmin’s love of fashion.  Our favorite piece of decor was a custom airport departures sign.  Instead of cities, each bracket displayed a characteristic that Taj so dearly loves about Jasmin! Congratulations to these two, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness and adventure!

Personalized Stationery for Proposals and Weddings with PurpleTrail

At The Yes Girls, there’s nothing we love more than supporting passionate small businesses that are paving the way in their industry. We have worked with many crafters and makers in our day, and have come to recognize what qualities make some business really stand out from others- excellent customer service holding rank at the top of our list. That’s the motto of our new favorite hand-made stationery company, PurpleTrail. Their number one priority is to create products that their customers love, which means using the finest paper and highest quality materials, as well as offering fast shipping and a satisfaction guarantee policy.

 

PurpleTrail got its start in 2008, in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains in Issaquah, Washington. After setting out to provide an exceptional invitation management service, PurpleTrail quickly evolved into printing invitations that could be fully customized by customers, without the need to invest in expensive and difficult software. The company’s online design center is unparalleled in the industry, providing the ability to choose an already-designed product, or change it up a bit by moving items around and adding decorative touches.

“PurpleTrail recognizes the designer in each customer and allows them to create invitations, cards, stationery and more for all of life’s special moments.”

– Christina Kejriwal, Owner of PurpleTrail

 

While PurpleTrail offers items for every occasion, they mostly love to help tell love stories. From items for the proposal (we love this “Things to Do Before We Say I Do” Journal as a scrapbook for the things you will need to do before the wedding, including the first step: the proposal!) to the announcements, to the guest books, and even custom signage for the wedding, PurpleTrail offers something for every stage!

“However you go about designing your wedding invitations and wedding stationery, we want to bring your wedding vision to life in an easy and affordable way.”

– Christina Kejriwal, Owner of PurpleTrail

 

How we like to PurpleTrail

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again…we’re true believers in putting in the extra step to really make your relationship thrive! Not every gesture has to be as grand and elaborate as a proposal. Sometimes the most meaningful act can be as simple as writing a love letter and leaving it for your significant other to find during the day!
We recommend ordering a set of PurpleTrail’s custom stationery to have on hand (they offer a wide variety of patterns and customization options to choose from!) Once a week, you can write your loved one a letter letting them know one thing you love most about them, why you’re grateful for them, or what future moments you’re looking forward to having with them. The simple gesture is sure to bring a smile to their face and a spark to your relationship!

Proposing With Your Pet

It’s no secret that we absolutely ADORE when pets are included in proposals.  If your fur baby is a big part of your relationship, why not have them involved in such an amazing memory? Here are a few unique ways to honor your four-legged friend in your proposal.

 

1. Tie a note around their collar.

2. Include a watercolor pet portrait into a monogrammed crest

3. Frame a family portrait of the three of you.

4. Make a “congratulations” video from your friends and family (and pets) to watch after the proposal.

5.  Have friends and family hide at the venue to surprise her afterwards (and of course, have them bring along your fur baby!)
