Melanie and Sam Wedding

Our Story:
Sam and I were neighbors in the dorms our freshmen year at UCSB. We were good friends for over a year before we started dating and we’ve been together since then. Five years into our relationship, we took a little vacation to New York. On our last day, we went to the famed diamond district in NYC. One of the stores caught my eye so we went in to browse. It was one of those places where you can build your ring, so we started picking the setting and the diamond and before we knew it we had the beginnings of an engagement ring. He asked me right then and there to marry him and of course I said yes. Then we got to watch the jeweler set the diamond, and the ring was finished before our eyes.
