To celebrate all the engagements happening in our community this year, we have started a promotion called The Jewelry Center’s Couple of the Month! Each month of 2017, we will be awarding one lucky couple with a night on the town and a piece about them on our blog! To any engaged couples that would like to apply, please contact us with your names, an email address, phone number (for if you win!), and the date of your wedding!
Our September 2017 Couple of the Month is Parker and Rachael! Parker and Rachael will be getting married on October 6th, 2018 at the Silver Spring Golf Club in Menomonee Falls. They recently stopped by the store for an interview, read their story below!
HOW DID THE TWO OF YOU MEET? FIRST DATE?
Rachael: We actually met while working at the Majestic Movie Theater together. I had worked there for a while, he was the new guy. We started dating around three or four months after he got the job.
Parker: First date went well! Did not go to the movies though, went as far away from the movie theater as we could… actually we just went out to dinner in downtown Waukesha. But it was great!
TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL!
Parker: I proposed on June 30th of this year, so about 3 and a half years after we started dating.
Rachael: On that Friday, Parker said that we were going out with some friends that night. We did dinner and a movie beforehand since there was supposed to be a storm (even though it ended up not raining at all). After that, he said he needed to grab something from his house so we go back. Once we got there, he walked me around back claiming that a tree in his back yard that had gotten struck by lightening.
I followed him out there and he had a tent set up with string lights. He then proceeded to tell me that we were not going out that night because all of our friends where at his house. He got down on one knee and then the lights in the house came on and all of our friends and family came rushing outside!
GREAT PROPOSAL STORY! AND THE RING? HOW’D YOU TWO DECIDE ON ONE?
Parker: I did tell her beforehand to start looking at designs. I ended up picking the one that I noticed she said she liked on “more than one” occasion. So she laid the ground work, but the ring itself was still a surprise.
HOW ARE THE WEDDING PLANS COMING ALONG?
Rachael: We picked out October 6th, 2018 at the Silver Spring Golf Club in Menomonee Falls… and that’s about all the planning we have done!
Parker: We thought about having the wedding earlier, but decided on an October date. So now we have plenty of time to plan. Both of our families are from Waukesha County too, so we’re glad it will be somewhere close to home.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO ADD AS OUR SEPTEMBER COUPLE OF THE MONTH?
Rachael: Thanks for doing the contest! A few of my friends have liked your page on Facebook, so I saw this post asking for engaged couples to enter. We were very excited to hear that we won!
Parker: I of course had no idea what was going on when she first told me we won – but I’m glad she entered!
Rachael and Parker will be enjoying their complimentary date-night on September 29th as the prize for being our September Couple of the Month. All of us at The Jewelry Center wish you the best of luck as you begin this new life together!
