Engagement Profile: Anna and Jonathan


How did the two of you meet, and who made the first 

We actually grew up in the same town, but  never knew each other. When Anna was living in Washington, DC, she came home for a wedding and ended up staying with their mutual friend, Annah Kaye, at Jonathan’s house, and long story short, Jonathan’s dog bit Anna’s face and the rest is history! After the dog bite, Jonathan and Anna couldn’t stop talking, and two moves later, they were living in Athens together and getting engaged.

Who were the first people you told about your engagement?

Everyone. Jonathan set up a surprise engagement party with all our friends and family at the Globe right after he proposed. It was incredible and such a surprise, it was every person I know and love all in one room. It was perfect.

How did you hear about T.K. Anderson Designs?

Several of our friends had their engagement rings handmade and Jonathan knew he wanted a ring made specially made.

 What was your favorite part about working with the T.K. Anderson team?

I actually went to school with Wes, so it was nice having someone I knew working on the ring. It was nice to see how excited and passionate he was about the ring. When you’re investing time and money into something it’s nice to see the person helping is as enthusiastic as you are. He also made it very easy for me. I gave him a general idea of what I wanted and he took it and ran with it.  

Bride, what do you like most about your new ring?

I love everything. It is everything I wanted in an engagement ring, especially because it is so low set. It is flawless, and I am so proud to show it off. I get more compliments on how sparkly and perfect the setting is. One of my clients saw me a few days after I got engaged and said, “did you get engaged this weekend?” and I said, ‘Yes, how did you know?!”and she said, “There’s no way I would’ve missed that beautiful sparkly ring on your finger before.” I think that says it all.

What are you most excited for in your future together?

I can’t wait to go home every day to the funniest, easiest going person I know. Sharing the every day stories is my favorite, and of course laying together and watching Netflex with the dogs. But I can’t wait to share our stories when we are 90 years old about our favorite prune juice, who cheated in card games, and shuffle board adventures together.
