Jennifer

& Dwayne

A Family Affair

For local couple Jennifer and Dwayne, nothing is more important than family. That’s why Dwayne included Jennifer’s whole family, with a big surprise, when he got down on one knee.

“I knew he was the one because he loved my family as much I loved my family, and that was important,” Jennifer says. “I knew he would make me happy.”

It’s no surprise that Dwayne’s proposal was a family affair. But he worried that Jennifer’s family wouldn’t be able to keep the secret, so he had a lot of planning to do before he ultimately popped the question.

A BIG SURPRISE

A BIG SURPRISE

In the fall of last year, Dwayne hatched a plan: a surprise proposal at a big Christmas party that he and Jennifer would host, with all their relatives present.

And once he’d settled on a proposal idea, Dwayne worked with Diamond Design bridal specialist Rhonda to get the perfect ring in time, as well as keep it all a surprise.

“Rhonda was great in helping me choose a ring,” he says. “And she was great at keeping a secret, because you can’t keep this family out of Diamond Design!”

Jennifer agrees – her folks are often at Diamond Design, because “There’s no pressure there … They’re all about making you happy, as opposed to making a sale.”

Rhonda and Dwayne had to scheme a little, to keep everything a secret – from everyone. And everyone was completely surprised at the Christmas Party Proposal.

“I cried for about 5 minutes. I could not respond at all,” Jennifer says.

“My knee started to get sore!” Dwayne chips in.

“My mom was very emotional,” Jennifer continues. “Both my parents cried, but I finally managed to get out a ‘yes.'”

Everyone loved the surprise – but Jennifer’s sister was ‘upset’ that Dwayne had kept everything a secret so long. So Dwayne got down on one knee yet again, to ask her to be his sister-in-law.

“Family’s really important,” Jennifer reiterates, and laughs.

Ultimately, Dwayne was able to propose with a beautiful ring because Rhonda helped narrow down his many choices. Knowing that Jennifer’s style was simple and classic, Rhonda was able to help Dwayne find a ring and Lazare diamond that was unique and matched her tastes.

“They really knew what kind of taste I had. I can’t stop looking at it!”

And The Wedding?

Jennifer and Dwayne decided they wanted to get married as quickly as possible, and therefore had a relatively short engagement. They were married this summer on Canada Day – which is also Dwayne’s parents’ anniversary.

“That makes it extra special,” says Jennifer.
