Y'all ready for this? Today we have an AMAZING story from the wonderful Audrey, a T&H devotee and 1/2 of a darling T&H couple, Audrey & Matt! Audrey sent us amazing photos from her photographer, onelove photography, and WOW are they stunning. This lovely Texan-turned-Californian is a tried and true vintage lover, and we absolutely LOVE her too! This story has two parts: the proposal and the wedding - and each is definitely worth the read!
From Audrey: "My wedding ring was handed down to me by my grandmother. My grandfather proposed to her with the ring in 1950, and she wore it until she passed in 2000. When Matt proposed, he wanted to propose with something that was from him that I could pass down like my grandma did with her engagement ring. He worked with T&H last year and purchased the "Fairmount" ring which is a 1950's yellow gold ring with diamonds. It's from the same decade as my grandma's ring, which made it extra special." Swoon.
As for the proposal itself? We're amazed that Matt was able to pull of such a fantastic surprise! Matt arranged a CRAZY decoy plan involving their friends Brittney & Brandon to get Audrey to the Venice canals in Los Angeles one Saturday morning (while thinking that Matt had been called into a last minute Saturday work meeting). Instead, Matt was waiting for Audrey on a bridge in the canals with a ring. When she got there (confused, of course!), Matt told Audrey: "You mean the world to me, and I want to be with you forever", dropping down onto one knee. As soon as he slipped the ring on her finger and she said YES (through many, MANY tears!), balloons were released into the air and the crowd burst into cheer, which was, of course, Audrey's closest friends and family. To top it all off, Matt had rented a house in the canals for the weekend where Audrey's friends had been staying, and had a photographer waiting to capture the moment. Oh my gosh! We're dying over here!!
The journey doesn't stop there! Audrey and Matt got married in July, and again the sweetest man in the world had another surprise for his vintage loving bride-to-be. Matt gave Audrey a T&H aquamarine ring on the morning of their wedding to wear as her something blue - how sweet is that?! She absolutely loves it, and we think it's so stunning on her. Congratulations, Audrey & Matt! We hope you both are absolutely loving married life and we wish you the absolute best in your future together!
