Wedding Bands, Part I

On Saturday the Future Hubby and I were out running errands when he asked one of my favorite questions that I LOVE to hear- "Would you like to stop by Hofmeister {our jeweler} while we are out?!" I don't really think I need to tell you what my response was! :-)

We went in and our two favorite people at Hofmeister were working that day- Tim {head designer} and John {manager}. Why are they your favorites you may ask?!? Other than the fact that they are awesome at what they do; they always have a glass of scotch for Future Hubby and a glass of wine for me ready to go (we were good on Saturday and did not partake in any beverages while browsing). The Future Hubby was in between two wedding bands last time we stopped in at Hofmeister so I wanted to get his ring finger measurements just in case. We had three options as of Saturday when we walked in - 1.) A. Jaffe Ring, 2.) Christian Bauer Ring, or 3.) Have Tim design Future Hubby's wedding band.

Well, the decision has been made but I won't be sharing that until we have the ring in our possession! I will at least show you pictures of option 1 and option 2.

Christian Bauer
A. Jaffe

And of course, here are some ring shots that I love!!!! Happy Monday!

Sean Watson Photography (I love using the pool balls to show your wedding date)

Christine Farah (I could easily do this shot on our piano at home)

Evrim Icoz Photography (A golfer's dream)

Unknown (Pretty gutsy)

Up next, my wedding band and hopefully a picture of my engagement ring. :-)

ooo..ring shopping is always a blast! It's like a kid in a candy store! :) Can't wait to see pics of the one you chose. And that ring pic in the sand makes me squirm! You are right, they are gutsy for doing such a thing and I'm pretty sure I will never be recreating that photo! ;)

Stumbled across your blog this afternoon; I got married August of 2008. Good month to get married in! :P

At our wedding, our photographer took our rings and placed them in Daniel's boutonniere, which we held in our hands, creating a heart-shaped effect...if you want another idea. :) You can go here to see the photo in question. :) You might have to scroll through the thumbnails; if so, I'm sorry! Technology + me = disaster!

Happy Planning!! :D

Umm...I want to go to a jeweler and have them poor me a nice glass of wine. I'm so jealous!

Nice ring shots! I love the piano one. The beach/sand shot makes me nervous. Very creative.
