How They Met
Hailey and Tate have known each other almost all of their lives. They grew up in a small town and went to elementary, middle, and high school together. After graduation, they went their separate ways, going to separate schools and didn’t keep in touch with each other during this time. Four years later with the help of some of their mutual friends, they hung out a few times and the rest is history. Hailey says she knew right away that Tate was everything she wanted in a husband. It didn’t take long for them to fall in love and realize they were perfect for each other.
Tate’s birthday was coming up and his mom asked Hailey to help her plan a surprise party for Tate. Hailey was all in since she loves surprises. Tate’s mom planned everything, and Hailey just had to get Tate to the party without him figuring it out. Once they arrived at the party, everyone screamed “Happy Birthday!” when Tate walked in. When Hailey turned around to see Tate’s expression, he was down on one knee holding a ring box! Hailey instantly started crying and was completely speechless. It was a perfect proposal with their family and friends surrounding them. The whole time Hailey thought she was planning a surprise birthday party for Tate, but he was actually planning a proposal and engagement party! Hailey had no idea!
Hailey says she absolutely loves her ring! It’s simple, but has lots of sparkle and makes a statement. It is exactly what she wanted in a ring and more — the beautiful undercarriage just makes it over the top. Hailey originally went to Dianna Rae with her older sister to show her some styles that she liked. Hailey also sent her other pictures of rings she liked, so when Tate decided to go ring shopping he knew exactly who to call.
