Kerry and I were friends in college but kept our relationship casual as he traveled abroad for work, and I lived in Ohio. We stayed in touch but eventually reconnected in-person while both visiting friends in Chicago. After that visit, we decided to be more than friends and started dating long-distance. One (long) year of distance dating later, I moved to Chicago to finally be with Kerry. Fast forward through two years of dating and deciding we wanted to get married. Kerry and I shopped for engagement rings, with the first and only jeweler being Razny Jewelers. We loved working with Natasha, and she knew exactly what I envisioned and how to translate to Kerry to keep it a surprise gracefully.
About a week after celebrating our second dating anniversary, Kerry brought me to the J Parker, where I thought we were getting brunch, and then he got down on one knee. It was the most beautiful fall day, with gorgeous city views and my absolute dream ring and perfect life partner -- it seriously felt like a movie! We're so excited to include Razny in our love story, and I'm thrilled to look at my beautiful ring for the rest of my life!
