From Best Friends to Fiancés

Ashleigh Johnson and Brian Duke grew up together as best friends in Gainesville, Georgia. Brian was a year ahead of Ashleigh in high school and after his high school graduation, he found himself attending the University of Georgia while Ashleigh went on to attend Brenau Women’s College the following year.

In 2004, Ashleigh graduated from college and returned home back to good ol’ Gainesville, Georgia. It was there that she ran into Brian’s brother, Jason. The two began catching up about the latest events in their lives. While joking around about Ashleigh’s recent split from her college boyfriend, the two called Brian and Ashleigh jokingly proposed to him.  Brian gladly accepted the joking proposal. While the two did not run to the alter, they did begin dating.

With time having passed, Brian proposed to Ashleigh this past September. It came as a complete surprise to Ashleigh! Brian caught her while she was in the laundry room. When she turned around, she found dear Brian propped down on one knee holding a beautiful Platinum 3CT Radiant Cut Three Stone Diamond Engagement Ring, a remarkable Engagement Ring that owner Eddie Hazan of Tara Fine Jewelry Company had personally designed.

Brian and Ashleigh will be getting married this October in Athens, Georgia at the Hardeman-Sam’s House – a special location for the couple. This sentimental place is in plain sight of Brian’s old college condo.  After the wedding, the two plan on traveling to Costa Rica for a romantic getaway to begin their beautiful happily ever after!

Brian and Asheligh we wish you both the best of luck. Thank you so much for allowing us to help create such an extraordinary Engagement Ring for Ashleigh. It was our sincerest pleasure. We wish you blessings and happiness for a lifetime!
