Kaylea & Jacob

The proposal story

We travelled to Mexico-- 'Jake’s first tropical vacation', and while I was taking a nap, Jake wrote me the sweetest love notes and left them on the bed. He ordered champagne and dessert to our room and set it up on the balcony. When I woke up, I found the notes he’d left, one which directed to me to the balcony. He had set up our tripod and camera to capture the moment, but in his nervousness, pushed the photo button rather than record. It was the best moment of my life, and we laugh about the camera mishap.

How we met 

Jake and I met for the first time in junior high at a dance! We ran into each other frequently throughout high school, but didn’t end up together until later.

Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?

A happy surprise! I’ve always had a crush on Jake. They say love happens when you are least expecting it, and we both believe that. We went on one date and were inseparable after. I was living hours away and neither of us were anticipating having a long-distance relationship, but we are so glad to have found each other when we did! 

Favorite part of your relationship?

We have a lot of fun together. Getting to be with your best friend every day is the best feeling!

What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?

There are so many things we are excited for, like experiencing new things together, travelling, and eating good food!

Why did he or you choose the ring you did? 

Jake said he saw the ring and thought it suited me. That it was different than any ring he’d seen, and thought it was just beautiful. I actually did not have any part in choosing the ring, and I was honestly very impressed with Jake’s choice. I love that it’s simple, unique and timeless.

Why Lawlor Jewelry? 

Being that Stettler is home for us, we both value supporting locals. Aside from that, everyone at Lawlor’s has exceeded our expectations in service. They have been friendly, supportive and patient with every interaction.
