Stacey-Ann & Anthony
An untraditional engagement!
Stacy-Ann and Anthony’s untraditional
engagement experience started when they set a date for their wedding
knowing they wouldn’t have an engagement ring at the time.
“We had discussed marriage many times but seriously never discussed it
until after returning from my birthday trip to Las Vegas, Nevada,”
Stacy-Ann explains. “The entire time we were there, we kept joking and
saying, ‘We should just get married while we are here’ but of course we
never did. We wanted our close friends and family with us when we said
After the trip, the marriage discussion came up again and Stacy-Ann says
they both wanted to set a date for May 28, 2011. They didn’t have a
ring at the time they got engaged, but they did plan to get one later.
“In our eyes, the ring (while important) is only an outward symbol of
our promise. What really matters is the commitment and the promise of
true love to each other,” she says.
“I did make him promise, however, that he would have to follow up with a grand proposal,” Stacy-Ann recalls with a smile.
And Anthony, delivered two months later, proposing in the privacy of their home with candlelight, roses, dinner and a love song!
