Chris and Meghan live in Chicago, got engaged in Paris, and chose Meierotto Jewelers right here in Kansas City for her engagement ring and their wedding rings. The blog Junebug Weddings recently covered all the details of their gorgeous urban chic Chicago wedding, complete with stunning photos from The Shalom Imaginative.

Chris was kind enough to tell us about his experience with us and about his fairy-tale proposal to Meghan.

Working with Meierotto:
I was referred to Meierotto's by a friend and worked with Emily. Over a few months time including a few phone calls and a couple trips from Chicago to Kansas City, I was able to hand pick the right diamond and design the exact ring with Emily. The best experience was coming back around Christmas with Meghan to look at rings at Meierotto's. Completely oblivious, Meghan picked out the exact diamond I had already picked. She tried it on and repeatedly told me it's the one. Emily and I did our best to not give away our secret that everything had already been taken care of. Best experience ever! The entire process was easy and stress free. Emily was able to explain the entire process and fulfill every detail.


The Proposal:
We took a trip to Europe last summer to attend friends' wedding in London. We planned trips to Barcelona and Paris before the wedding. I was nervous about traveling with the ring so I left a note in my back pack with the ring in the event TSA searched my bag. Luckily there weren't any issues. I proposed to Meghan in Paris at a restaurant she and her family had been to when she was younger. With an early reservation we had most of the restaurant to ourselves for a while and I proposed over cocktails and dinner. She said yes and we enjoyed an amazing, French dinner, walked the streets of Paris at night and enjoyed champagne along the Seine.

We are so proud to be part of your special day, Chris and Meghan. Thank you for helping to establish Meierotto Jewelers as Kansas City’s favorite engagement ring store.
