Jack and Alyssa share a love that many of us dream of. It’s a bond that grew and strengthened over time and has them looking forward to the future. When wise words from a friend opened Jack’s eyes, he knew he never wanted to say the words “goodbye” again. With the perfect engagement ring and a surprise proposal planned, he was ready to to ask for Alyssa’s hand. Jack and Alyssa share the details of their relationship from how they met, to selecting a diamond ring and visualizing where they see themselves years from now.
A Growing Relationship
Jack and Alyssa met in a leadership program at the beginning of their sophomore year at Liberty University. As they continued to spend more time together, they found they shared a love of cooking together, trying new restaurants, and driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
When asked how they each knew they had found “the one,” Alyssa shared, “I don’t know if I ever had a defining moment; it’s been a love that's grown over time. It was in the little things where I was able to see Jack’s character and recognize the type of man he truly is. His kindness and compassion never cease to amaze me."
Jack recalled a conversation that helped him realize Alyssa was the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. “Someone once wisely told me that he knew his wife was the one when he realized he never wanted to say goodbye to her and in that moment, I knew that Alyssa was the one.”
Choosing an Engagement Ring
Jack recalled Alyssa visiting Fink’s with one of her best friends a few months before he proposed. After browsing through the selection of diamond rings, she picked out a particular style of engagement ring she liked. Later, Jack went to the store to choose the specific diamond ring and carat size for Alyssa.
When asked what Alyssa loves most about her engagement ring, she told us, “I love that it is classic and timeless. It is everything I have ever wanted!”
Jack proposed in Alyssa’s hometown on a dock outside of one of her favorite spots. She remembers having absolutely no idea he was in town and was completely surprised! “My favorite part of the proposal was the letter Jack read to me before he got down on one knee,” she recalls.
