      Aimee & Robert

      Aimee & Robert

      Tell us your proposal story

      Robert and I had a weekend getaway planned to Jasper. It was just the two of us to do some hiking and cross-country skiing. On our first night, we got dressed up and went for dinner and drinks. Our hotel had a beautiful outdoor fire pit with the mountains as a background. When it was just the two of us, Robert got down on one knee and proposed. After I said yes I found out that Robert had driven ten hours in one day in a snowstorm to ask my father's permission to marry me, knowing how important this was to me. We spent the rest of the evening calling all of our family and friends.

      How we met
       
      It all started with a swipe to the right. We went to Bower Ponds where he had planned a picnic and a walk on our first date where Robert spent the entire time staring far too long at me and being terribly nervous. I’m still not sure how a second date came out of that!

      Did you know you would end up together after you met or was it a happy surprise?
       
      The day after our first date, Robert sent me a text that asked “Did you have a good time last night?”. After that, I knew that he was someone special. Dating isn’t easy these days as so many assumptions are made, but Robert was the exception. We have always had clear intentions in our relationship which I think is rare, especially at the beginning.

      Favourite part of your relationship?
       
      Oh my gosh, do we ever laugh! Whether it’s kitchen dancing with our little guy, an impromptu wrestling match or laughing over something ridiculous one of us has said. We love sharing our lives together, and doing it while truly being happy is the best feeling.

      Short or long engagement?
       
      We have a date set for the end of October. We’re hoping the pandemic cooperates, we are ready and excited to start our life together as a married couple.


      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
       
      Robert is already an amazing father to his son Robbie and we cannot wait to see where life with our little family takes us. We have big aspirations career, life and family-wise and love that we get to have a partner to support and share all of these moments with along the way.


      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      Robert sat down with Mike and made this custom beauty of a ring. I had always wanted a pear shape and rose gold but hadn’t imagined it would be this beautiful. It’s more than a piece of jewelry to me; it has mine, Robert’s and Robert’s son’s birthstones within it, accents of my grandmother's wedding band as well as Mike and Alexis’ creative touch- it reminds me of our family every day.


      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
       
      Our best friends happen to own Lawlor Jewelry. Mike and Alexis have been Robert’s best friends and have been there for Robert for years. They welcomed me into their family with such grace. We are beyond lucky to have them in our everyday life.

      Ryan and I took a drive out to Abraham lake to do our Christmas photos, we went to three different spots to find the perfect backdrop. I thought it was strange that Ryan wanted to do just one more photo, and that’s when he surprised me by getting down to one knee and proposing!

      How we met
       
      Ryan and I met on Tinder. We chatted for a few months before he finally got the courage to ask me on a date!

      Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?
       
      I knew Ryan was the one the day I met him. I called my mom shortly after our first date and told her that I found my husband haha! As for Ryan he knew shortly after we started officially dating on our first trip away to Canmore!

      Favourite part of your relationship?
       
      We are literally the same person. We are always finishing one another’s sentences, and we are always on the same page because of how well we communicate with each other.

      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
       
      Travelling and creating a family together. We both can’t wait to be parents one day!

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      Ryan had a feeling it was the most me. It matched my style and personality!

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
       
      Our great friends Robert Spensley and Aimee Pennell are mutual friends with Mike & Alexis Lawlor!

      Tell us your proposal story

      Wyat had planned a trip up to the mountains and took a detour on our way out to my favourite spot, the pier at Rochon Sands. I was confused, but he assured me that he just wanted to start the trip out the right way. I was getting swarmed by flying ants so I asked Wyat if he was ready to go. He replied “Not yet.” and then got down on one knee! I was so in shock, that I didn’t even remember his speech! He had to repeat it to me once we were back in the vehicle.

      How we met
       
      We met online back in 2018, but we didn’t end up together right then.

      Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?
       
      We both agree it was 'love at first sight'. As soon as we met, we knew! Wyat eventually told me that when he got into his car after our first date he thought to himself “I’m going to marry this girl!” and funny enough, I texted my mom and best friend after that first date and said “I’m going to marry this one!”.

      Favourite part of your relationship?
       
      Everything! We work so well together and are each other's best friends. Whatever’s thrown our way we’re either laughing or crying through it together.

      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
       
      We’re excited to start a family of our own and to just simply enjoy every day together.

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      He got me to pick out the design of the ring I liked, and Lawlor had just what we were both looking for!

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
       
      From Wyat, he is originally from Stettler, so he knows all the great local stores!

      Couple: Megan Myshak & Wyat Haustein

      Kelsey & Cam

      Kelsey & Cam

      Tell us your proposal story

      We were supposed to travel to Costa Rica in March, where Cam had intended to propose. However, as our travel plans fell through due to COVID, Cam was scrambling to come up with an alternative.

      Throughout the COVID “lockdown” we would have weekly themed date nights: 80’s rock, disco, Costa Rican beach night, and finally, fishing and a picnic. We went to a local fishing spot where we fished, drank champagne, talked, and ate. The night in itself was beautiful.

      As the sun started to set, I started to get cold and asked if we could go home. As we began to pack up he said, “There is one more thing we need to do before we go…” then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

      How we met
       
      Cam and his family moved to Stettler in 2007 and into a house a few doors down from mine. His younger brother and I are the same age, and Cam is the same age as my older brother, so it didn’t take long for our paths to cross.

      As a teenager, Cam was a Dad’s nightmare: mischievous, wild, and rebellious. As a teenage girl, I was naturally drawn to him. If I was in trouble, it likely involved Cam to some extent (he tells this story a little different, but we will go with my version). 

      After Cam graduated, we lost contact.

      Five years later, our paths crossed again. This time, I was living in Red Deer with my friend, DJ, while attending college. DJ is best friends with Cam’s younger brother, Cody. During the winter, Cam and Cody were also attending RDC in the carpentry program. Cody had asked DJ if it was possible for the two of them to stay at our place when the roads were bad, rather than make the drive back to Stettler.

      The first night that Cam and Cody were staying over, I avoided going home. I knew that if our paths crossed again that something would develop between the two of us, and I didn’t know if I was ready for that. I spent almost two hours at Petland; which, you can only spend so much time at Petland before you buy a pet or get offered a job. So eventually, I had to go home, and here we are six years later.

      Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?
       
      Yes and no. 

      We were together for a year before we decided to take a break. At this time, we were both so young and so focused on our own goals that it was difficult to envision a future together.

      After a year apart, we decided to get back together. After we made this choice, I think we both knew that we would end up together. 

      Favourite part of your relationship?
       
      Cam loves our adventures. We are both quite outdoorsy, and when we have free time, we try to spend it outside; either fishing, camping, paddleboarding, hiking, etc.

      For me, I love the small moments: arguing over whose turn it is to buy ice cream, endless games of crib, planning new projects for the house, or our silly antics.

      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
       
      Cam is excited to build a family, and I am equally excited to see him become a Dad.

      I am looking forward to the life we build and the things that we will accomplish together, as a couple, and as individuals. It is so exciting to watch your person grow into the best version of themselves and attain their goals. 

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      I am a girl with a vision. I have had my eye on this ring for years and saved and resaved it to my Pinterest multiple times. Mike and Cam both knew exactly what I wanted. Cam added a few personal touches to make my dream ring even more exquisite. 

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
       
      The Lawlor’s are my “second family”. Cam knew that having a ring from Lawlor Jewelry was as important to me as having my dad’s blessing. 

      Tessa & Davis

      Tessa & Davis

      Tell us your proposal story

      Davis: I wanted to do it in front of our closest friends and I had two occasions in 2020 to choose from, her 30th birthday in February or a group camping trip planned for Canada Day weekend in July. I got in contact with Mike in early January and it just so happened we were able to come together with the design and weight of the ring. The turn around was so quick that her birthday became the perfect time to propose. I had rented a private room at a local eatery on Whyte Ave, surrounded by our closest friends, much of which was our probable wedding party, and waited until dinner was over to clink my glass and get everyone’s attention. I made a speech about how I was thankful everyone could come out and make Tessa’s 30th such a special day, and wanted to add just one more thing! I got down on one knee, said a few special things to her, and asked her if she would make me the luckiest guy in the world and marry me. The rest is history!

       

      How we met

      Davis: We met through Tinder in December of 2017, and our first time meeting was our first date at a board game cafe on Whyte Ave!

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

      Davis: I knew early on in our relationship we would end up together. Two months in and we both told each other we loved the other! We gelled in so many ways, made each other laugh, and had an instant chemistry and spark that spread into a wildfire.

      Tessa: I definitely knew there was something special about Davis from our first date onward, as unbelievable as that may sound. The chemistry and instantaneous connection between us was unlike anything I’d ever experienced! I’m a bit more of a pessimist than Davis however, so I can’t say I knew we’d end up together for sure, but I surely hoped so!

      Favorite part of your relationship?

      Davis: Going to concerts and events, taking long bike rides together ending in brunch, exploring new spots in our city together, getting drinks on patios on hot summer days, skating in the winter, trips together and with friends, and spontaneous laughing fits about the stupidest little things. But if I HAD to choose one, my favorite part is after I have cooked us a delicious meal for dinner, and we are cuddling together on the couch, we turn on 90 Day Fiancé or Married at First Sight and talk the upmost trash about the couples featured. Haha, she turned me on to trash TV and I have never looked back!

      Tessa: My favorite part of our relationship would be how we share such similar senses of humor! The ability to sass one another without either of us taking the other too seriously. Plus our shared interest in garbage television (I may have played a major part in Davis’ introduction to said media) definitely is a major bonus!

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

      Davis: The next steps! Buying a home and raising a family together is definitely what I look forward to the most! 

      Tessa: I look forward to more travelling together, buying a home, and most of all, beginning our family! 

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
       
      Davis: I listened to the times she said she disliked certain shapes and styles, and made notes in my phone. Mostly I took inspiration from her grandmothers ring she wears daily to go into the details and style of the band and diamond! That, and Mike definitely pushed me in some right directions on bands I didn’t know about, and weights of diamonds that would nicely feature set in it!

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?

      Davis: I grew up in Red Deer, and my best friend Mitch Orobko had a long time friend which whom he was living with, and that man was Mike Lawlor! Not only that, but all 3 of us worked together at EB Games in RD and quickly grew thick as thieves and great friends! And it's not just because of my close relationship with Mike and Alexis, it’s also their wealth of knowledge in the field, ability to educate, and their creative minds to know what would look good. Plus their turn around time in my case was phenomenal!
