Today started as a typical gloomy summer day for us in Seattle as usual, but when we received this absolutely tear-inducing proposal story from Michael and Haley, our day was instantly filled with internal sunshine and brightened like no other. We loved all the incredibly thoughtful, intimate, and uniquely personal details on this special day shared by the future Mr. and Mrs. Ottenad, featuring our beautiful Evelina ring with an aquamarine center in white gold. 💍

From the groom-to-be: “Haley and I have been big fans of museums since day one. We bought year long Balboa Park Museum passes on our first date (we obviously thought we were going somewhere). The space, natural history, and aerospace museums were all really cool, but Haley absolutely loves art museums. So in crafting the proposal I got several of our friends who are more artsy than me to help create pieces inspired by our relationship. I transformed the front of our house into an art studio-esque space and totally surprised her when she came home from hanging with a friend. ✨
I had this final blank canvas at the end to talk about how I wanted nothing more than to spend the rest of my life creating something beautiful with her, and that we really do have a blank space to create whatever we want out of life together. I pulled the ring out of the celtic wooden box (I'm super Irish so I had to throw it in somewhere) and then I got down on one knee and proposed to the woman of my dreams.
Thank you so much for the part you played in our engagement. She absolutely ADORES the ring!” ✨
