Engagement Expert: Honey Designs

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a great week! I recently met up with my friend Chelsea of Honey Designs and it was so much fun! Chelsea creates custom engagement rings and bands! She helps your future fiancé even set up the whole proposal and everything! 

I recently went to one of her Saturday Style Sessions and it was so much fun! Even though I'm already engaged I can see how this would be so helpful for future brides.  One of the things I found most helpful about the whole process is actually trying on some rings to see what I liked, what I didn't and how everything fit. Here's what one of these sessions looked like:

  • Enjoy mimosas, coffee, or tea and morning snacks
  • Play around with ring samples
  • Learn about the design process and diamond education

You leave with some custom designs, an individual second appointment, and a gift card to Alba Organic Beauty for a manicure!

These are held once a month on a Saturday morning from 9-11 am in a small group setting, all for $30! 

These are some of the photos from when I went! Taken by Anastasia Gentry.

It was awesome to hear all about Chelsea's knowledge, I wish I would have known going into getting a ring.  She helps you understand, knows all the answers and isn't pushy! She can help design the engagement ring of your dreams. 

She also helps with your significant others proposal and here's what she offers with that: 

  • One-of-a-Kind Custom Design Ring
  • Personalized Style Session
  • Custom Ring Box
  • Mini Photo Session Package
  • GIA Graduate Gemologist Appraisal Documents
  • 1st Year Ring Insurance Coverage
  • Proposal Coaching
  • Engagement Ring Reveal Party

Engagement Story

AHH! I can't believe it, Im engaged! If you haven't see from Instagram this past weekend, Henry and I got engaged! I am just over the moon so excited. So I just had to share the story with you! (There's going to be a lot of exclamation points :))

So I work from home on Friday's and Henry called me at 2 which isn't like him at all.  So of course at first I thought something was wrong, but he told me to sign off work and I have 30-45 minutes to get ready.  My response "No I couldn't possibly leave work!".  He told me my boss was aware and would cover my work.  I literally couldn't believe it but I started getting ready (and continued working).  He came to pick me up and I figured something was going to happen but I was running around like a crazy person. 

He took me to a rooftop bar and as we went up to the stairs I heard our song "Mess is Mine" by Vance Joy playing and I started to tear up.  Henry guided me to this spot where you can see all of Downtown Cincinnati and told me how much I meant to him.  (To be honest we were so nervous we don't remember what was said.) He got down on one knee and said "Will you marry me?". I said YES! The ring was more than I could ever imagine and that's my reaction!

He had rented the rooftop so it was ours for an hour and David from David Stephen was there. We got some amazing photos taken.  It's seriously so amazing to have photos of that moment.

And THEN our whole family flew in to be with us, from California, Florida, Chicago and Mexico City!! We are very lucky, my pregnant sister was able to come and Henry's brother surprised us. 

We got to spend the weekend with them, and I didn't post anything for 24 hours.  It was fun to be engaged and have no one know but our families. He then arranged to have all our friends come in town for Saturday to celebrate more with them.

We are so grateful and lucky to everyone that has congratulated us.  We are so excited for this next chapter of our life and I can't wait to bring you along with me! 

 I hope you enjoy the photos!
