Dallas is a melting pot of interesting culture and art. Deep Ellum is a Dallas district that is lively, electric, and vibrant and it's no wonder that Meredith and Sam were drawn to the quirky vibes. We loved this one, guys; the murals were a great, funky addition to their tender session with Sincerely Staton.
How did you meet?
We met in Dallas at the “Library Bar” of the Warwick Melrose in September of 2017 on a blind date. Both of us shared similar interests, and we clicked right away. Sam had only lived in Dallas for a couple of years, and I am a native, so we discussed different aspects of the city, and Sam talked about Los Angeles, where he had moved from. We actually went to dinner at a French restaurant afterward, and we were engaged at a different French restaurant less than a year later!
What is your proposal story?
We got engaged in Austin on 8.18.18 at the restaurant “Le Politique.” Sam planned a very fun getaway weekend on Lake Travis that concluded with dinner at our favorite French restaurant, and a surprise proposal right after ordering hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Needless to say, we were both very excited to be engaged, and we enjoyed walking around the city after dinner, and called our families to share the exciting news.
Tell us about the ring/band.
The yellow gold ring I wear on my right hand was Sam's grandmother's engagement ring, which he gave me when he proposed in August 2018. The white gold princess-cut solitaire on my left hand was custom designed in Dallas. We purchased that ring two weeks after we were engaged (on my birthday actually). We both like simple jewelry, so we elected to go with a timeless solitaire, so all of the emphasis can be on the center stone.
