Melissa

& Steve

Humble Beginnings

Melissa and Steve went to college at the same time, and while she thought he was cute, he also seemed too shy for anything serious. It would take a second meeting for their love story to really start.

“We actually met at the Sundance on George Street,” Melissa says, and they both laugh.

They joke that being a little under the weather on their first encounter actually helped things along. And ever since then, Steve says they’ve talked just about every day.

“It’s been an excellent 7 years,” he says.

Once they were ready to get engaged, Steve wanted to ensure that he got the engagement ring exactly right.

“I wanted to make sure that she was happy and got exactly what she wanted, so we went back and forth to Diamond Design a few times,” says Steve.

Like many couples, Melissa and Steve went ring shopping together, and both were surprised at how much they learned in the process.

“We didn’t expect the level of knowledge that we gained from going there,” says Melissa.

Working with bridal specialist Sharon, Steve and Melissa were able to design a ring to perfectly suit Melissa’s tastes. She says she can’t be more proud of her vintage-inspired ring.

“You just feel like that ring was made just for you,” says Melissa.

Melissa’s ring features a Lazare diamond which is, in her words, “completely beautiful.”

“Just the way light hits it, it just shines, and people notice it right away,” she says.

Melissa credits Sharon with finding the diamond that matches her band perfectly. And Steve remains grateful to Sharon for how much she helped throughout the entire process: “they’re honest and trustworthy, they’re going to tell you how it is and you’re going to get what you pay for.”

“I feel like I got more than what we paid for at the end of the day, because it’s been so personalized and the ring is just beautiful,” says Melissa.

And The Proposal?

Even though Melissa had been ring shopping, Steve’s proposal was still a surprise. Once he picked up the ring from Diamond Design, he couldn’t wait to propose – and did so near Valentine’s, with a little help from Melissa’s mom, who’d been enlisted to get Melissa home in time.

“I didn’t even have my jacket off,” Melissa says of being greeted at her door with Steve and the ring.

“I screamed a little …” she says. “It was really cute, it was perfect.”
