SYLVIE BRIDE SPOTLIGHT: TAYLA S.
Meet our gorgeous Sylvie Bride, Tayla S.
All within two years Jeremy and I met, we fell in love, moved in together, bought our first home and now are planning our dream wedding! He has become the most important person in my life. He makes every day better — he’s my best friend. Meet our Sylvie bride, Tayla and her fiance, Jeremy.
How did you meet your fiancé/spouse?
Jeremy & I met at a restaurant in Boston on New Year’s Day. He was standing at a table with a group of friends and I was sitting at the bar across the room. When I first got there, he immediately caught my attention. For the next hour, I sat at the bar chatting with my best friend, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off him. Finally, I got the courage to go say hi, but as I approached the waitress dropped off his bill. I said, “You’re leaving so soon?” and we hit it off from there. He called me a few days later and asked me on our first date… It was love at first sight!
What is the moment where you knew you would be together forever?
I knew after a few short months that Jeremy and I were meant to be. We spent every weekend together when we first started dating. Those weekends soon turned into weeknights which eventually led to me moving in with him, just 6 months after we had met. He was living in Providence when we met and I was in Boston. I would travel to Providence to see him as often as I could and he was so caring and appreciative of the time I spent to get there each time. My favorite life motto has always been: “It’s the little things in life that mean the most” and from the beginning Jeremy had a way of making each and every small moment count. His constant thoughtfulness was what made me fall in love with him first. On the night of his 33rd birthday we went out in Newport, Rhode Island and spent the whole night laughing. At the end of the night, he told me he was in love with me and in that moment, I felt something I had never felt before and I instantly knew he was the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
How did he propose?
We recently bought our first house together. One casual Friday after work we made dinner and enjoyed a bottle of wine. He asked if I wanted to go for a walk to explore our new neighborhood. Around the corner from our house, there is a beautiful farm with a field that stretches for miles and a gorgeous pond. As we approached the pond, the sun was setting and the next thing I knew he was on one knee. I felt like I was dreaming!
What made you decide to choose a Sylvie collection ring?
Jeremy picked out the ring all on his own! He chose Sylvie because how dainty and sophisticated the style is.
Which ring did you choose and why?
Jeremy chose the spiral white gold engagement ring – S1524. He chose this ring because of how unique and elegant it is. He said that as soon as he saw the ring he knew it was so me!
Where did you buy your ring (which store)?
Mallove’s in Waterford, CT
What do you love most about your Sylvie collection ring ?
I love how unique my ring is. It is beautiful and elegant. Its everything I ever dreamed of! It is a timeless classic! The Yasmine, S1524, is our Sylvie bride, Tayla’s engagement ring!
We see our Sylvie brides as “ yes” girls. What do you say “yes” to in life?
I say yes to…
1.) Romantic dates – life can get busy and date nights are always necessary
2.) Beach days – the best way to spend any summer day
3.) Family – being around those you love & love you right back for everything you are
4.) Friendships – there is nothing better than a good conversation with an old friend
5.) Wine – between busy days at work & wedding planning, unwinding with a glass of wine at the end of the week is always the perfect treat
6.) Me time – whether it’s a walk, a nail or spa appointment, it’s always important to take care of yourself
7.) Spontaneous adventures & traveling
8.) Laughter – life is too short not to!
9.) Passion – you have to love what you do!
For the guys/proposer: What do you love most about your Sylvie bride?
Tayla’s infectious smile has made me smile since the day she approached me at the restaurant in Boston. Her compassion for helping others is clear with her career in radiation oncology. When she isn’t working, Tayla continues to care more about others than herself, with her family and friends coming first… With a glass of rose coming in a close second. Her professionalism and maturity are well balanced with her passion for letting loose and enjoying what life has to offer – I know this will carry into our long lives ahead!
