Engagement Profile: Ian & Alex May 08 2015
How did the two of you meet, and who made the first move?
The two of us met when Alex and I were wingmen on our friends’ blind date. Their date went horrible, but Alex and I hit it off right away. We knew immediately that there was a strong sense of chemistry between us, but in spite of that we went our separate ways and did not start dating until a year later. We randomly saw each other again on a UGA game day and it was like we never skipped a beat. We started dating and fell in love.Who were the first people you told about your engagement?
We were in Hawaii at the time and the time change was so drastic from our home that we woke both of our parents up at 3 am to tell them the news.
How did you hear about T.K. Anderson Designs?
Alex and I have been friends with Wes for years, and I knew with his help he would create a ring that Alex would cherish forever. I also knew that having one of her best friends make her ring would mean the world to her. Most importantly make her want to say yes to my marriage proposal.
What was your favorite part about working with the T.K. Anderson team?
The T.K. Anderson team always made me feel welcome and truly valued my input. Their creativity and attention to detail was extraordinary. I could tell they loved what they did, and that love shined through in how exquisite Alex’s ring turned out.
Bride, what do you like most about your new ring?
I love how it is original and made just for me. I love how it sparkles and shines, and I also love that my Fiancé had input in the design process. One of my favorite things is that my family nickname is inscribed on the inside of the band.
What are you most excited for in your future together?
We are excited about getting to spend the rest of our lives with our best friend, and starting a family together.
