    T&H Couple Jennfier & Jesse

    Trumpet & Horn couple Jennifer & Jesse

    Boy, have we waited a long time to bring this T&H couple to you!!! But after hearing the tale from Jesse, we're happy to report that it was well worth the wait! Jesse purchased the beautiful Wisteria for Jennifer back in May, and held onto it until the moment was just right— Jesse knew he couldn't propose unless everything was absolutely perfect. So after traveling through South America with the ring, and hiding it from her in their tiny NYC apartment, Jesse finally popped the question this past October. The two were driving through Rocky Mountain National Park, one of their favorite things to do in the fall, when they found themselves alongside a gorgeous lake just before sunset. Jesse knew his perfect moment had arrived! He got down onto one knee & tried to remember all of the things he'd been holding onto since the spring. Jennifer joyfully said YES and couldn't be happier with Wisteria. Congratulations on your breathtaking engagement, we're so happy to have been a part of it!

    T & H Couple Heather & Andy


    Say Hello to our latest T&H Couple, Heather & Andy! We love this sporty duo for many reasons, but lately we love them even more because they're double Trumpet & Horn customers! Andy bought the stunning Sandy Hill as an engagement ring for Heather & then returned for Bordeaux, one of our vintage-inspired wedding bands. Andy and Heather met in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico doing what they love most: playing professional beach volleyball. They connected immediately and were engaged three years later on Valentine's Day 2014. The pair wed this past October in beautiful Santa Barbara. Both Heather and Andy are realtors in Manhattan Beach, and when they're off the clock, they enjoy traveling, playing with their dog Bailey, and, of course, beach volleyball. We are overjoyed for these two & so happy they chose Trumpet & Horn...twice!

    T&H Couple: Kimmie & Matt

    Trumpet &Horn -Couples-Kimmie & Matt

    We are thrilled to introduce you to our latest T&H couple (and our dear friends!) Kimmie & Matt! Matt knew exactly the ring that Kimmie wanted— classic with a little twist & pear shaped stones. When our team found this vintage ring, Matt snatched it up before it even hit the website! With the perfect ring in pocket, Matt put all efforts towards his flawless Las Vegas proposal. Kimmie thought they were just dressing up to meet friends for dinner when Matt dropped to one knee and popped the question. He even hired professional photographers to hide in the bushes and capture the whole thing! After she enthusiastically accepted, Matt had one more surprise in store: both of their families were waiting in a suite at the Bellagio to celebrate with them! How amazing is that!? Bravo Matt & congrats to you and Kimmie! We're so happy for you!
