Meet Sylvie Bridal Ambassador Ariana!
Here at the Sylvie Collection the one thing we love more than our engagement rings is the love story behind each piece. We sat down with Sylvie Bride Ambassador Ariana Lamb where she shared her love story (with now-husband Scott) and the role the Sylvie Collection played in her happily-ever-after.
How did you meet your fiancé/spouse?
Scott and I met on Fisher’s Island, New York (tiny island off New York/Connecticut). My best friend and roommate from college summers was there and brought me there for a weekend in 2007 and Scott and I met. We were friends for years and then in the fall of 2012 started to date after reconnecting at a wedding earlier that summer.
What is your favorite “courtship story”? The moment where you knew you would be together forever?
There are just too many to name. But I will always recall hearing him talking to his nana about our relationship. Everything he said was just so perfect and sweet, it was how I felt about our relationship and knew that he was who I wanted to be with forever after hearing that. He later told her, I didn’t know this, but he said I was the one he was going to marry.
How did he propose?
He proposed at home. We were going on a date night, which is very rare for us because he is in the Navy and it can be hard to have a night free. We were going to my favorite restaurant Salt in Manchester by the Sea, New Hampshire. I was getting ready and we were just talking about the night and our day. At one point, I turned around and he was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course, I was shocked, started crying and said YES! He planned it out so we could go to dinner and celebrate! It was exactly how I would have wanted it. Private event for just the two of us.
Did you have honeymoon plans?
We were unable to have a honeymoon right away due to a deployment scheduled. We have since relocated to San Diego, California and bought our first house. He should be arriving here soon and we will plan a honeymoon/babymoon. We are expecting our first child in April 2017!
What made you decide to choose a Sylvie Collection ring?
About 3 years ago, soon after we started dating, Scott and I were walking down the street in Saratoga Springs, New York where he was stationed and he said let’s look in here. It was Fox Jewelers. We browsed and loved their collections. It became a thing for us to stop in every so often and where Scott had purchased some holiday gifts for me. One day he brought me over to the engagement rings and said look at these which ones do you like. I tried on all sorts. Sylvie was my favorite! I loved them. For a year, every time we went in I would try them on and I fell in love with one specific one. Scott knew the code for the ring and remembered it until the day he went to the Jewelers in Massachusetts and designed it with them.
Where did you buy your ring?
Descenza Diamonds – Peabody, Massachusetts
Would you recommend this store to your friends?
Which ring did you choose and why?
SY395 – I loved the style and that you could put a round diamond in the center of a cushion cut. It was just classic to me. Scott loved it too!
What do you love most about your Sylvie Collection ring?
It’s beautiful! The design is so intricate and they think of everything. I receive compliments all the time!
What is your favorite love quote of all time?
“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul, that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.”
– Nicholas Sparks
From all of us at the Sylvie Collection, we want to congratulate Ariana and Scott on their marriage and on the up-coming birth of their child. Additionally, we would like to thank Mr. Lamb for his bravery and service. We wish you both all the happiness! Thank you for sharing your story with us.
