Doug and I met while taking time off from school, living in St. Paul, Minnesota. When we met it was an instant connection and we decided to leave the cold winters of Minnesota and head to Sunny Colorado. We moved to Denver in 2006 and have been building our lives here ever since.
It wasn’t until the summer of 2010 that Doug decided to make the big step and ask me to marry him. He had it all planned out; it was fourth of July weekend and we had a weekend getaway planned in Beaver Creek, CO. We were all set to go up to the mountains, except for one thing, the ring that Doug had made back in his home town in Illinois didn’t make it. I, of course, had no idea the amount of stress and worry that Doug was experiencing while we were driving up to the mountains. Miraculously, Doug’s brother who also was the best man in the wedding, found the ring in a downtown Chicago post office, where he was able to somehow talk them into giving him the ring and within hours he was on a plane from Chicago to Denver to deliver the ring to his big brother! The ring was delivered in the middle of the night as I slept and I had absolutely no idea that any of this was happening. The next day, Doug proposed at Beaver Lake up on top of Beaver Creek Mountain. It was perfect!
After the ring fiasco, Doug and I both decided we wanted someone local and someone we could trust to help us pick out our wedding bands. Williams Jewelers has been everything we wanted and more for our choice of jewelers! We were working with Laurel, who was such a pleasure and she helped put us at ease through the whole process. She was a great listener and very helpful as Doug and I began our process to decide on our bands. Laurel gently and professionally guided us through this process and helped us to create a custom wedding band that fits perfectly with my engagement ring. I couldn’t be happier with the end result; our rings are beautiful and exactly what we wanted. Williams Jewelers was professional, caring and provided us with excellent service!
