To celebrate all the engagements happening in our community this year, we have a little promotion called The Jewelry Center’s Couple of the Month! Each month we award one lucky engaged couple with a date-night on the town and a piece about them on our blog! Our March 2018 Couple of the Month is Sidney and Jes! Here’s a look at our interview with this wonderful couple!
HOW DID THE TWO OF YOU MEET? FIRST DATE?
Jes: We actually met a long time ago in middle school! Started dating back then, but broke up…
Sidney: Then we didn’t like each other all that much for a few years…
Jes: And then we dated again in high school… and then broke up…
Sidney: And then dated again in college and that was it!
Jes: Third time’s the charm!
Sidney: So I guess our “first date” would have been a movie and popcorn in my parents basement.
TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL!
Jes: So we took both of our families to Mass at Holy Hill, and afterwards I told Sidney that we could walk the trails. So we walked down to the first station, and I asked her right there.
Sidney: It was a wonderful surprise! He had been screwing with me for a while, telling me that he was going to do a joke-proposal. So when he got down on one knee, I thought to myself – “Oh no, stand up Jes, not a good place for a joke-proposal.” I still didn’t fully believe him until he finally pulled the ring out – and even then I still had to ask if this was real.
Jes: And it was!
AND THE RING? HOW DID YOU TWO DECIDE ON ONE?
Sidney: So we actually went in and picked out a ring and put down a deposit. But then he ended up surprising me and proposed with a totally different ring… but I like this ring better!
HOW ARE THE WEDDING PLANS COMING ALONG?
Sidney: Things are going good! We’ve set the date, picked a venue, and our Church. It’ll be on May 11, 2019. The reception will be downtown Milwaukee at The Astor Hotel.
Jes: Both of our families are from here so we wanted to have the wedding close. Except Sidney does have some family from Georgia, so they’ll be making the trip up.
EXCITING! ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO ADD TO YOUR STORY AS OUR COUPLE OF THE MONTH?
Sidney: Nope that’s about it!
Jes: Thanks so much for picking us!
We really enoyed having Sidney and Jes at our Greenfield location to learn more about the two of them and they are looking forward to their date-night! We wish the two of you nothing but the best in your wedding planning and the next chapter of your lives together!
