Matt & Callie
We got engaged in October of 2018. I came home from work and found a note on the kitchen counter telling me to watch the video on TV. Matt had made a video of pictures of us throughout our relationship. As I was watching the video, our dog Zoey came running out of the bedroom with a corsage on her paw and a sign around her neck. The sign said “Can Matt be my dad and can we change our last name to Rammelsberg?” Then Matt came out, got down on one knee, pulled out the most beautiful rose gold diamond ring, and asked me to marry him! It was perfect.
Proposed In Chicago
Jon & Katie
Chicago: where we took our first trip together; where Katie met Jon’s family; where the first “I love you’s” were exchanged; and where Jon later took Katie on a surprise weekend trip.
Once we were in Chicago, time for the surprise date - we were heading to the zoo!
Katie loves animals so this seemed like a great surprise date. Then in front of the zoo, on a bridge with the beautiful Chicago skyline in the background, Jon got down on one knee and said, “This is it. This is where our adventure begins.” And with the most stunning rose gold diamond ring, our new adventure began.

Raheem & Janesea
He honestly caught me completely off guard. We were on a family trip in Wisconsin Dells. On this day of the trip, Thursday August 17th, Raheem had decided, along with my now in laws, that we were riding the Army Duck duck boat. I had never rode one of these and was excited. He made sure I sat in the second row, his sister sitting across the aisle and his parents and other siblings in the seats behind us. His reasoning was so i could video him when he got the opportunity to drive the Duck boat. I was on and off my phone video chatting with my mom showing off all the sights. I had just got off the phone when the tour guide handed the wheel over to Raheem. After a few photos the guide told Raheem to scoot over because the boat sounded off, and he wanted to take a look at things. I of course was paying more attention to everything but the boat. Next thing I heard was "I don't know about this but Janesea, my boy Raheem here says he has something to say". As soon as I looked up Raheem
Was on his knee. My initial reaction was yelling " hold on hild on I got to get my mom on the phone for this", and I heard my now sister in law say, "I got that covered, we are Live and shes watching." Upon hearing that i immediately said Yes to the proposal along with a few shrieks of joy. It was the best way I could have imagined being proposed to. He understood how important family is to me and made sure to inform them of when he was planning on doing it and planned to have someone videoing it so that my mom who lived so far away could feel apart of the experience.
Alyssa & Andrew
On December 25, 2018, after lots of family and Christmas celebrations; we finally got to celebrate Christmas just the two of us in our apartment. It was what we both wanted, Christmas in our first home, just the two of us. As we were opening presents, he gave me an order that the gifts could be opened in. Which wasn't out of the norm for us, but I had no idea what was coming. When it was time for me to open my last present, He said "Okay, it's big so you might have to stand to see the whole thing." I didn't see him leave the room. When I got the present open, it was a sweatshirt that read "Girlfriend, Fiancée," with girlfriend crossed out. I blacked out. The only thing I remember was burying my face into the sweatshirt with tears streaming down my face.
When I finally caught my breath and looked up, my best friend, my soul mate, was in front of me, down on one knee, asking me if I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. Honestly, he's lucky I didn't tackle him to the ground with all the adrenaline and excitement and pure joy that was pumping through my body. Every day I look at my ring and know that he put his heart into designing it with Joe, and I will forever consider the team at Siebke Hoyt as a part of our forever.
