Michelle & Vince - Appelt's Diamonds

Michelle & Vince

Vince and I got engaged just over a year ago on our five-year anniversary on June 21, 2019. We had gone ring shopping a few months prior, but just to get ideas at a couple of stores. A few of our friends who were married highly recommended Appelt’s for their fantastic service! I would’ve obviously loved anything that he chose, but it meant so much that he included me in the process and took note of what exactly I liked! We loved the look of the Zeghani rings and decided on a custom oval shape with a tapered band in white gold.

On our anniversary, we celebrated with dinner at Bailey’s Restaurant followed by him surprising me with a staycation at Mere Hotel nearby. We walked in and the room was decorated beautifully with balloons, string lights, and white and pink rose petals. Above the window was a banner that said ‘Will You Marry Me?’ and he got down on one knee with the most beautiful speech and ring to accompany it! One of our friends had actually hidden in the bathroom and was able to capture this special moment.

This month we’re choosing to celebrate love by going on a mini vacation to Clear Lake! We both work two jobs, one full time and one part time, so we are really looking forward to unplugging and enjoying some quiet time together as well as exploring all the nature Manitoba has to offer!

We continue to receive amazing service from Liz at the Ness location. We had begun looking at wedding bands prior to the pandemic, so we are looking forward to our next visit and choosing our bands for our big day next summer!
