Lili & Ethan’s love story
In our blog series, Your Love Story, we interview our beloved couples who have found their dream ring at The Moissanite Company.
While Lili and Ethan first crossed paths thanks to a light-hearted prank call as teenagers, their connection quickly turned more serious and recently, they celebrated their 9-year anniversary by getting engaged!
They shared all the details of their proposal, love story and wedding plans with us, and we are so excited to share it with you!
Q. We're in the business of proposals, and never get tired of hearing your stories: tell us all about the moment Ethan proposed!
A. During a holiday to the NT, we were at Uluru at sunset to celebrate our 9th anniversary. Despite having had two ACL surgeries in the past, he still managed to get down on one knee to pop the question.
Q. You've chosen to spend the rest of your lives together, so what is it that you love most about each other & your relationship?
A. Because we’ve grown up together, we know each other so well. We’ve shared so many special milestones together and we share very similar morals. Ethan is definitely the more fun and easy-going one in the relationship, which keeps me grounded, and I help to keep him organised - the perfect balance!
Q. It's been an honour to play a small part in your love story so far. What made you choose The Moissanite Company and how did you decide on your ring design?
A. We wanted to support a small business and love the personal touch that gives. We loved the quality and designs Makayla had to offer, and also felt uncomfortable with the idea of going with a diamond for ethical reasons. We chose the Audrey ring as I have always loved emerald cut stones, and our 4 year old golden cocker spaniel’s name is Audrey! So it was meant to be.
Q. While you might be still soaking in the proposal love bubble, have you made any plans for your wedding? We'd love to hear all about it!
A. We are both from North Queensland originally so we thought it would be fitting to say our vows in the same place we grew up together. We have chosen a beautiful venue in Port Douglas and our wedding will be on the date of our 10th anniversary. Our dog Audrey will be our ring bearer on the day.
Ethan proposed to Lili with our beautiful Audrey Ring - Emerald solitaire.
