SAY HELLO AND CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SYLVIE BRIDE, KELLIE & HER FIANCE, DEVIN!
HOW THEY MET
My fiance and I started dating in our senior year of high school. He noticed me as the new girl in honors biology freshman year whereas I didn’t notice him until junior year. After graduation, we decided to continue dating while going to different colleges across the state. After five years of long-distance, we were finally able to once again live in the same city.
HOW DID YOU KNOW THEY WERE THE ONE?
I knew from a very early point that I would be spending the rest of my life with my fiance. I knew it when we went off to our separate colleges. We had to say our first of many “goodbyes”. We woke up early and drove down to Bradford beach to watch the sunrise over Lake Michigan. Afterward, we grabbed a warm cup of coffee and breakfast at the local Collective. We continued to do this, at the end of every summer for the next 4 years. Every year, it was a reminder that this is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with and watch many more sunrises and sunsets with him.
HOW DID THEY PROPOSE?
It was a Friday, and I had the early shift at the hospital that day. I had actually found a penny face up in an area where that would be a bit of a surprise. I didn’t realize how lucky that penny would be until later that day. I was on my way home when I received a text from my fiance asking if I could pick up the milk and a bottle of wine, and of course, I did. When I entered our apartment, geared up in my winter attire with a gallon of milk in one arm and a giant bottle of wine in the other, I saw hundreds of candles and rose petals all across the apartment. There was music playing in the background, and the man of my dreams dressed to the nines. You can guess what came after that!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE A SYLVIE RING?
I loved Sylvie’s collection because it had everything I was looking for in an engagement ring. I love the details and the vintage feel that my ring has!
I got the Cheri engagement ring! I love the intricate details that this ring has. It also has diamonds on all sides of the ring, so no matter which way you look at it, it will shine!!
WHERE DID YOU BUY THE RING?
We bought my ring at Chalmers Jewelers in Madison, WI. It meant a lot to us to go to local jewelers, and they impressed us so much that we ended up buying it on the spot!
AS A SYLVIE BRIDE, YOU SAY YES TO LOVE AND TO MANY OTHER THINGS! WHAT ARE THEY?
I say yes to positivity and to love. I also will always say yes to puppies and ice cream!!
