This Rogers Park engagement session with Lauren and Jeff went from a warm sunny day to a romantic rainfall. Despite the changes in weather, it was a super fun session in the sand and rain next to the beach. Jeff was gifted an engagement session through C.D. Peacock when he was buying the ring for Lauren. They are getting married on Halloween of this year at Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet. There won't be a costume party but they are excited to incorporate some Halloween themes into their wedding.
How did you choose the ring at C.D. Peacock?
"We had been to C.D. Peacock before to look at engagement rings and were impressed by their customer service that we knew my dream ring would be there! Jeff went back about a year later (without me knowing) and remembered everything I loved about the ring I saw before. He spent a few hours trying to find the perfect one. I love my ring and we have C.D. Peacock to thank for that."
How did the proposal happen?
"The proposal is our favorite part of our story. We were at the Hilton Chicago for their New Year's Eve Party. Jeff had been planning on proposing that night (right after midnight) for a while but how it actually played out was amazing. ABC7 Chicago was doing a live broadcast throughout the night when one of Jeff's close friends came up with the idea to see if they wanted to show it live on TV and they did. So right after midnight we were doing an interview on live TV when Jeff got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. It was an incredible moment that many of our friends and family got to share with us since they were watching it live too."
