“I certainly never imagined I would find love when someone bumped into me at Dunkin Donuts, spilling his coffee on me and ruining my shirt.” Congratulations Jackie & Charles!
How They Met:
Sometimes life doesn’t go the way you imagine it will. I never imagined I would be a single mom with 3 kids, or that I would go back to school full time. I doubted I would ever get married again. And I certainly never imagined I would find love when someone bumped into me at Dunkin Donuts, spilling his coffee on me and ruining my shirt. But what looked like a really bad day, resulted in a really great date a few days later!
How He Asked:
After seeing each other daily for almost a year, we started to talk about getting married and looking for a ring. We casually visited jewelers over a few months. And then one day, when Charles couldn’t stand visiting any more jewelers, I went to Providence Diamond with my best friend. I knew right away that I liked Steve, he was knowledgeable but not pushy or opinionated. After a couple more visits (this time with Charles), we’d picked out a setting, a center stone, and ordered the most beautiful ring—all for less than the budget we’d given Steve.
After having been so involved in the process of picking out my ring, another thing I couldn’t imagine wanting was a formal proposal. But one October morning, on a trip to New Hampshire, we hiked up a couple thousand feet. And with the sun shining on a rock face over looking a golden valley below, Charles asked me to marry him and gave me the ring. In the end, it meant a lot to me that he asked the question, even if we already knew the answer.
