This Shane Co. couple has a completely unique and romantic proposal, and we couldn’t wait to share it! Keep reading for their adorable story.
It all started one night at a bar in St. Louis. Andrea and Paul were both there hanging out with friends after a Cardinals game. When Paul saw Andrea, he knew he had to introduce himself, and after some chatting by the bar, the two exchanged contact information. It took Paul three months to work up the courage to contact Andrea and ask her out. After messaging her, Andrea’s response was, “I’ve only been waiting three months for you to ask!” The two went out to dinner and have been inseparable ever since.
It wasn’t long after that when the two moved in together and then adopted a dog. Conversations about engagement, rings and marriage came pretty easily, but Paul wanted the proposal to be a complete surprise.
Earlier this year Andrea and Paul visited Shane Co. together so Andrea could try on different ring styles. When the associate brought out a vintage-inspired ring, Andrea knew it was “the one” before even trying it on. Even though Paul loved it too, he asked Andrea to pick out three that she liked best and he would make the final choice. He chose the vintage beauty she could not stop thinking about, and it’s absolutely stunning!
One day, Paul’s sisters invited Andrea to a BBQ on their dad’s farm, and she thought it was just a typical family weekend in the country. She had no idea what Paul had planned for her! After arriving at the farm, the two started walking through the field and Andrea noticed large wooden letters in the distance. Once she realized what they said, she froze. “Will you marry me?” was spelled out in hand-cut logs and Paul got down on one knee. After some happy tears, she said “YES!” Soon Paul’s sisters and Andrea’s parents, whom Paul had secretly invited, showed up. Everyone drank Champagne, took photos and enjoyed a BBQ.
Andrea and Paul have a country-themed wedding planned for August 2017. A big congratulations to this happy couple! We are thrilled to be a part of their love story and we wish them a lifetime of happiness!
