In Madison’s Words

How did you two meet?
We met at college in Abilene, TX. He attended Abilene Christian University and I was a Hardin-Simmons University student. He attended an HSU volleyball game to watch an old high school friend of his, I was playing for HSU at the time, he laid eyes on me, and the rest is history!

How did he propose?
The reason I was making a trip to Dallas this weekend was to celebrate Dominique’s birthday early because it lands on a Tuesday and I am still in the process of finishing graduate school in Abilene, TX. Boy was I in for a surprise. I knew something was up because I saw a test notification from my best friend pop up on his monitor, and they never speak unless something’s up. I was expecting something to happen the next day, Friday. Friday passed by, nothing unusual happened.

Saturday rolled around and I set out for my apartment search. He had a group project meeting that afternoon and we had dinner and movie plans to celebrate his 23rd birthday that night. After getting back from my apartment hunt, we began to get ready for dinner and a movie and he says to me, “Oh shoot! I forgot to leave a paper with my group for our project. We’ve got to go by campus before dinner.” This was hard for me to believe, but I went with the flow and we were soon at Dallas Baptist University. After running his “paper” inside to his group he came back to the car to tell me, “My group really wants to meet you.” I found this strange, it was a Saturday night and we were late for our “dinner reservations.”

Soon after getting me out of the car, he led me toward the DBU bridge that crosses over a campus pond. The venue was beautiful and we came to the end of the bridge where a gazebo was decorated with rose petals at my feet, framed pictures of us over the past 5 years, and 8 red and white balloons. After admiring the decor, he continued to lead me through the gazebo and near the shore of the pond where a single bench stood alone.

Dominique pops the question!

He looked into my eyes and reminded me of our time together, how we’ve come thus far through good times and bad. He dropped down to one knee and asked me to make him the happiest man alive. I SAID YES!!!!!! Soon after, my mom and some of my absolute dearest friends cheered from across the pond!! I’ve never been more overwhelmed with joy in my entire life. I could relive this moment over and over again. It was perfect!

What do you love most about your engagement ring?
I love that it has character! The rose gold is my favorite and the round brilliant cut could not be more perfect!

Wade & Jessi of Seattle, WA. Just Engaged!

Engagement Date  September 28, 2014
Wedding Date  TBD

How did you two meet?
We met in high school.

How did you propose?
I proposed to her at the final Seattle Mariners game of the season at Safeco Field. After the game I brought her down the stairs close to the field for pictures with my family and friends (about 15 close friends and family). And then afterwards got on one knee in the aisle and had the engagement box inside a cut-out baseball! Also with 2 dozen red and pink roses my friend helped me deliver.

What does she love most about her engagement ring?
She loves the simplicity of the round solitaire. She also is a big advocate of the 6-prong placement, she feels it showcases the 1 carat colorless diamond even more! It’s something she will never get tired of looking at and it’ll never go out of style! Our grandchildren will agree how beautiful it is even 50 years from now.

Wade presented Jesse with a classic diamond solitaire engagement ring with side stones from Robbins Brothers.

I bought it from the Woodland Hills, CA store while on vacation, but then had it shipped to our home near the Seattle, WA downtown store and picked it up there while on a lunch break. I proposed on the 28th of the month because 28 is a special number to us. Having both our birthdays on the 28th of our months, so it was fitting for this to be the same for the engagement and hopefully the wedding too!

Wade and Jessi, welcome to the Robbins Brothers Family! Best Wishes for a Happy Engagement! Enjoy every single moment of it. xoxo

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.
