      Haylie & Blair

      Haylie & Blair

      Tell us your proposal story

      We went out for an early dinner at Boston Pizza for our anniversary (which also happens to be Valentine’s Day), because the next morning we were flying to Hawaii for a family vacation. As I was finishing packing for our trip, I could hear Blair in our bedroom moving things around, but I didn’t pay too much attention to it. I was putting the final things into the suitcase when I heard Blair come in behind me, and he said “Should we pack this too?”. My first reaction was to be a little annoyed since he hadn’t been helping with the packing. So, I quickly turned around to find him kneeling behind me holding a ring. I was completely shocked and surprised. At first, I didn’t say anything, and just stared at him. Eventually after what felt like a lifetime, Blair said “Will you marry me?”. And I said “Yes!”. For the rest of the night I couldn’t sleep because I was so excited. As a side note Blair wanted to propose in Hawaii but was scared he would lose the ring traveling or it would be discovered by me or security at the airport. And he couldn’t handle the pressure of giving it to my mom for safekeeping.

      How we met

      I don’t remember the exact moment we met. We went to high school together at William E. Hay, and eventually ended up hanging out with the same people at parties. We were friends first for a couple of years.

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

      At first, we were just friends, but I think everyone around us knew we would end up together before we even did. Blair made the first move, and I couldn’t be happier that he did. I think it was a happy surprise, but deep down we always knew we would be together. Seven years together before he proposed to me!

      Favorite part of your relationship?

      My favorite part is how easy it is to laugh together, and have fun with each other. We seem to be smiling, and laughing all the time and are always making fun of each other.

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

      I look forward to experiencing life together as a married couple, all the good and bad times. As a couple we plan to travel the world starting with our honeymoon to Europe (crossing our fingers we can travel soon). We want to have children, and raise those children on a family farm outside of Donalda, Alberta.

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?

      Blair designed the ring completely by himself! I didn’t have any idea, and I didn’t give him any ideas either on what I wanted. It was November right before he got it designed and my sister-in-law was assigned the task of getting ideas out of me, but she completely failed. At the time I was more interested in completing my Christmas shopping list rather than going into jewelry stores. Blair and Mike did a really great job, I love it! 

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?

      Blair and I grew up in Stettler, and knew about Lawlor Jewelry growing up. We have many family and friends that have always had great experiences dealing with the Lawlor crew. Plus, our younger siblings worked at Lawlor’s an amount of time a couple of years ago.

      It was so special! Every February we spend a weekend in Canmore and usually do some sort of outdoor activity. Well, that year, Grant wanted to take me skiing and I hadn’t skied in years! So Saturday morning we were on our way to Nakiska for an 8:00 am lesson, and when we drove by Barrier Lake, Grant mentioned there was a nice hike around there that he would like to check out. Well, skiing only lasted about 3 hours because it was seriously -30 plus a wind chill, like sooo cold! So when leaving Nakiska, we stopped at this trail at Barrier Lake. I was like, “Are you serious? It’s way too cold for a hike”. Needless to say, he convinced me to go along and a little way into the trail he suggested we take a timed photo. He got the camera set up and I ran down a little hill to pose. As he came down the slope to pose with me, I noticed the camera wasn’t flashing to indicate the timer. I pointed it out, so he went up to “fix it”, then ran down again. And again, I pointed out that it wasn’t flashing. So I decided to go up to fix it myself and I realized it was set to record, not a timer. He said, “Oh my bad” (playing dumb) and came to 'fix it' a third time while I get back into position. Now we’re posing for the third time, the camera still isn’t working, and I am freezing, so I said “Let’s go, it’s way too cold for this” and started to walk away. Grant replied, “Just one sec.” and as I turned back around he was pulling the ring out of his pocket and getting down on one knee! I was in shock! I think I said, “OMG no you’re not” like 3 times! Once I got over my shock, I said “YES!” and to my surprise, Grant filmed the whole thing! Now we’ve been engaged over a year and are 6 months away from our wedding.

      How we met

      Good ol' Facebook! He says he saw me at the Renschler’s once a long time ago. And I knew of him too as this hottie who was friends with my friend’s older brother.

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

      I never saw it coming but it was the most pleasant surprise! Now I can’t picture life without him.

      Favorite part of your relationship?

       I smile a lot, but I smile the most when Grant is around. He makes life fun and exciting and is often taking me on neat little adventures. He’s an extrovert and I am an introvert but we balance each other out so well.


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

      We can’t wait to start a family, Grant is going to be the best protector and partner.

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?

      Grant did it all, I didn’t have a clue! He truly made it unique, which is what I love most about it. He always tells me he loves me "Head to toe" and got that engraved on the inside of the band.


      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?

      Mutual friends and just being from Stettler! Lawlor Jewelry is the absolute best!

      Brett proposed at sunset while walking along the Tangolunda Beach in Huatulco, Mexico on February 12, 2019!

      How we met

      We met at a wedding dance in Halkirk! Although we had our eyes on each other for much longer than that!

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

      It was a happy surprise to meet at the wedding dance, but after our first date we both knew we would be together always.

      Favorite part of your relationship?

      We are best friends and truly enjoy every minute together. We laugh a lot, learn so much from each other and we are always on the same page.

      Short or long engagement?

      A year and a half.

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?

      Brett brought ideas of what he envisioned for the ring and Mike made it a reality and more, with his attention to detail and tasteful ideas!

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?

      Lawlor Jewelry has always been a popular name around town and Brett is super fortunate to have Mike as one of his closest friends. It was a no brainer to choose Lawlor Jewelry for our rings! It was such a fun and easy experience and we would have not wanted it any other way!
