Engagement Date  December 13, 2013
Wedding Date  August 22, 2014

How did you two meet? (In Judon’s Words)
Millie’s best friend introduced us in high school.

How did you propose?
I proposed to her in Las Vegas. Invited her out on the balcony of our room to have a drink and watch the sunset. When she turned around I was down on bended knee with the ring.

Where did you get married?
We married at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas in front of 50 guests. It was perfect.

What do you two love most about your Engagement & Wedding Rings?
I love the quality and also how bright the diamonds are. The rings got so many compliments and they are very comfortable to wear. I took one picture of the bride’s ring, which has been the most popular picture that our friends and family have asked us for. Thanks to everyone at the Torrance store for your help & well wishes!

Big Brother 16 Contestants Jeff & Jordan Get Engaged with Robbins Brothers Ring

Just Engaged! Sending a warm congratulations to contestants Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd who were recently engaged on CBS’ Big Brother 16. When Jeff visited the Woodland Hills store, it was such a pleasure helping him find the ring that Jordan would adore. He was so excited and even a little nervous picking it out, but our wonderful engagement ring consultants, Amy Butler and Moraima Alamillo, helped put him right at ease. It was a ring-shopping “party” as the ladies assisted Jeff with his decision on a gorgeous cushion-cut halo diamond engagement ring from the Robbins Brothers Vintage Collection.

Late Night, Date Night In Seattle

By guest blogger Megan Pribble

PicMonkey Collage4

“Life is better when you’re laughing,” and eating delicious food, too.

Seattle is filled with numerous unique, eclectic, and delicious dining locations. We are fortunate to live in a city surrounded by food that is fresh and made local.

I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite date spots; as I am always looking to try new foods and restaurant locations, please let me know if you have additional recommendations!

My favorite places to eat are not necessarily the most formal. In fact, I find that eating out at restaurants that are affordable and offer delicious food is greatly satisfying.

Here are a few of my Seattle favorites:

Tavolata
An Ethan Stowell Restaurant, Tavolata, offers a variety of delicious soups, salads and pastas. Lofted ceilings, soft lighting, and bench seating make this date spot, located in the heart of Belltown, unique. My favorite item on the menu is the Rigatoni pasta!

TNT Taqueria
If you aren’t familiar with TNT Taqueria, located in Wallingford, you may never notice the space. This tiny walk-up taco spot offers incredible Mexican cuisine. The line may be long, but it is worth the wait. Be sure to pair your tacos with their avocado cream sauce (guacamole meets sour cream)!

Wild Ginger
Located in the downtown area, Wild Ginger is one of my favorite Asian restaurants. The menu incorporates traditional dishes from China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Malaysia. The Thai chicken skewers from Wild Ginger are my absolute favorite!

Red Mill Burgers
Sometimes your date can be as simple as enjoying a cheeseburger, with a milkshake on the side, of course. Red Mill Burgers, located in Phinney Ridge, is the perfect date destination. I typically order the Red Mill Deluxe burger, fries (because what burger is complete without them?), and a coffee milkshake. Eat at Red Mill, or take your food across the street for a picnic.

Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream
Complete any of the above dates, or a separate evening altogether, with incredible homemade ice cream. With locations throughout the greater Seattle area, Molly Moon’s won’t disappoint. Flavors rotate seasonally, but a few classics include vanilla bean, balsamic strawberry, and stumptown coffee.

How to Choose His Wedding Gift

By guest blogger Natasha Burton

One of the most special enduring wedding day traditions is when the bride and groom exchange gifts. This is typically done pre-ceremony, separately, as a way for the couple to connect and feel loved amid the chaos of getting hair and make-up done and wrangling groomsmen.

But finding a special something for this moment—especially for a guy—is no easy task. (Grooms have it easy: They can just buy a little bling and their brides are sure to swoon!)

So, if you’re stumped trying to figure out what to gift the man of your dreams on your big day, here are some key questions to help those ideas flow.

1. Would he prefer a less pricey, heartfelt gift (like a love letter) or something a bit more fancy and tangible?

2. Are there any elements of his wedding attire that you haven’t purchased yet, which could make good gifts? (As in, cuff links, a monogrammed pocket square, or a nice watch?)

3. Have you considered doing a boudoir shoot? (Giving your man pin-up style photos of you the day of the wedding is a popular trend right now.)

4. Does he have a favorite sport or sports player? (You could give him a signed baseball or something small that he would consider special to mark the day.)

5. Are you two all about coziness comfort? (Consider getting coordinating robes and slippers for each other that you can wear while getting ready—and beyond!)

6. Have you settled all of your honeymoon activities yet? (Perhaps a voucher for a fun excursion could be an exciting day-of surprise for him?)

7. Does your man like to be pampered? (Consider an experiential gift, like an in-room massage at his hotel or a stylist to come give him a haircut and shave before the ceremony.)

8. Does your groom have a quirky sense of humor? (Give him funny “groom” boxers to wear or special socks for keeping his “cold feet” warm.)

9. Is your groom getting ready with his boys? (Make it a party by gifting him a nice bottle of whiskey or a beer tower for them to all enjoy…responsibly, of course.)

10. Have you considered engraving something he already has? (Surprise him with a sweet message inside his wedding band or on the back of his favorite watch.)
