Brilliant Proposals: Paige and Stephen

We’re always delighted to be involved in one of the most important occasions in a couple’s love story: the proposal. When Stephen came to our Little Rock location to look at engagement rings for his girlfriend at the time, Paige, we knew we were about to be a part of something special.

The day of the proposal, Stephen picked up Paige for a “Breezeventure” – the couple’s code word for a special date. Once in the car, he told her they were going to a dinner party at Marlsgate Plantation. A lover of plantation style homes, Paige was elated. Upon their arrival though, there were no other guests. The two walked up the front steps of the mansion, Stephen pushed the large door open, and led Paige into the front room.

Inside, tea light candles lined the grand staircase. Five canvases painted by Stephen stood on easels, each representing a special memory from their two-year relationship. Paige realized what was about to happen, and the tears of happiness began to flow. Stephen and Paige walked through the sentimental display and reminisced about the important moments in their relationship that led them to this momentous occasion. Stephen then led Paige up the stairs, where a final canvas stood under a lace sheet. He removed to it to reveal the words, “Paige, will you marry me?” Paige looked over at Stephen, and saw her future husband down on one knee, holding out a little blue box with a breathtaking diamond engagement ring. He told Paige how much she had changed his life and that there is no other girl for him. Finally, he asked her to be his wife.

Paige joyfully exclaimed yes. The couple took photos on the plantation grounds at sunset with photographer Tanner Burge, and then went to meet Paige’s parents at YaYa’s Euro Bistro to celebrate. Instead of being seated at a table though, the two were whisked into the banquet room with a buffet of food, a large cake, and 50 of their closest friends and family. Stephen had surprised Paige yet again. It was one Breezeventure to remember!

Eric, one of our Little Rock associates, had a wonderful time helping Stephen choose a ring as dreamy as his plantation proposal.
