Brilliant Proposals: Jesse and Madelyn

Nothing brings us more joy than helping happy couples choose their forever rings. Whether the engagement ring will be a complete surprise or we help two love birds create their own custom design, it’s an honor to play a part in such an important occasion for so many incredible couples… couples like Madelyn and Jesse.

Madelyn and Jesse met as students at Cabot High School. When Jesse, older than Madelyn, graduated and went off to the University of Arkansas, the two didn’t have much communication. One weekend, Jesse decided to take a short visit to his hometown, and stopped by his alma mater to watch some Panther football. Madelyn, now a senior in high school, reconnected at the game. The next fall, Madelyn joined Jesse as a Razorback, and the two dated throughout their college days.

By Madelyn’s senior year of college, Jesse knew it was time to pop the question. He originally planned to propose during a Razorback pep rally while Madelyn was cheering, but the event was canceled due to bad weather. Though the pep rally was no longer happening, Jesse knew he couldn’t go another day without asking Madelyn to be his wife. Two hours before he had planned to propose, Jesse came up alternative plan.

The night began with a quiet dinner with Jesse’s family. As the couple drove around after the meal, Jesse pulled off at Donald W. Reynold’s Stadium, lit up red in anticipation for the next day’s football game. Madelyn stood, gazing at the glowing stadium, when she heard Jesse say her name. She turned around to see him on one knee, holding a diamond engagement ring. He asked if she would spend the rest of her life with him. She said yes.

Shortly after the two became engaged, the couple’s friends and family popped out from hiding, and celebrated the momentous occasion!

Sissy’s was honored to help Jesse select Madelyn’s pear-shaped stunner. The ring looked gorgeous in the store, but it somehow became even more radiant on Madelyn’s left ring finger.
