Congratulations to our latest T&H Lovebirds, Dagmarette and Alec! These LA based sweethearts came to shop with us in our downtown showroom, and we had an absolute blast with them! Aside from leaving our store with new BFFs, Dagmarette and Alec left with their sights set on their dream ring! Liz showed them a classic Victorian solitaire ring in a buttercup setting that hadn't yet made it onto our website and they fell in LOVE. Here's the sweet story that lead them to Trumpet & Horn. From Dagmarette:
We met on the set of Mad Men. Alec had worked in the art department for 3 seasons before I came along and to work in the costume department. Totally unaware of his intentions (and the fact he was even interested) I always thought our interactions were more work friendly. So when he invited me to play volleyball one Sunday with his friends I didn’t think anything of it. He even accidentally spiked a ball in my face and little did I realize (we joke) it was probably cupids arrow. Next thing you know, a first date, 3 years, and a rescued cat later, Alec proposed under a full moon atop a tower during our vacation in Cuba with a cuban band playing Buena Vista Social club. The 3 years leading up to the proposal have been challenging in our careers, jobs separating us across the country, but our relationship has stayed solid and our love has only grown. I think we knew pretty early on that we were meant to be together and this would be worth the fight.
Congrats you two! We are so happy to be part of your story! ♥
