PEAK HALLOWEDDING: When you propose with a coffin ring at a pumpkin patch

Posted by

Some of you may remember Laurie and Andrew's moody halloween wedding which featured a ton of classy but macabre and morbid details, complete with the bride and groom driving off in a hearse. They got married at the International Museum of Surgical Science, surrounded by photographs, paintings and drawings, sculpture, medical equipment, skeletons, medical specimens, and historic artifacts. You probably want to look at the whole creepy wedding.

But wait, did you notice that ring Laurie's wearing? Did you think to yourself, hey wait a minute — is that a gemstone shaped like a FREAKING COFFIN!? Maybe you tried to zoom in and were frustrated.

Well, get your zooming fingers ready, because all these years later, the groom emailed with a larger photo and a few details…

Andrew explained that he purchased the “Ghost” stone from Coffingems, and then had a local jeweler design Laurie's ring with a white gold band and a halo of diamonds around the coffin stone.
 
Apparently, Coffingems liked the ring Andrew created so much, that they now sell recreations of the design! Oh and by the way, way back in 2011, Andrew proposed in an appropriately on-theme location: Curtis Orchard & Pumpkin Patch in Champaign, IL, and on the first day of fall, no less… Aww, lookit these spooky kids doing the perfect proposal for what ended up being a Halloween 2013 wedding.

It's not often that we see the wedding photos BEFORE the proposal shots, but I mean it makes perfect sense that the couple who went on to have this wedding would get engaged at a pumpkin patch, doesn't it?
