This Instagram Is Packed Full of Super Sweet Proposal Stories
Whenever someone you know gets engaged, there are two things you need ASAP: a photo of the ring and the proposal story. It’s like milk and cookies — you just can’t have one without the other. If you’re a sucker for a great engagement story, we suggest you take a look at Stone Fox Bride’s Instagram. The indie bridal company’s account is obviously full of endless dress inspiration, but what caught our eye most while scrolling was their #stonefoxrings series. In the reoccurring feature, the brand shows off some seriously swoonworthy engagement rings with a short and sweet story about how the proposal went down. Scroll on down to read a few of our favorite stories and be sure to check in on the hashtag whenever you feel a case of wedding fever coming on.
1. The Childhood Sweethearts: “We met in the 8th grade, she was the bookworm and he the bad boy smoking in the school courtyard and became great friends… In college he decided to take a chance and kiss her, she didn’t say no. Ten years later he proposed on NYE with his great, great grandmothers ring.. They celebrate 5 wonderful years of marriage this Saturday… ” (Photo via @stonefoxbride)
4. The Star Gazers: “It happened last Sunday. They were sitting beneath the sky at the LA conservatory with their friend Max watching the wild moon at the conservatory. He got down on one knee and said, ‘In front of the city of LA and our friend Max I’m asking you to spend the rest of your life with me.’ The ring still needs to be sized.” (Photo via @stonefoxbride)
5. The Bikers: “He was in their kitchen in Brooklyn fixing his bike on one knee and he called her into the room, the ring in one hand and two screwdrivers in the other. He said, ‘I have two questions. Can you help me fix my bike tire. And can you marry me?'” (Photo via @stonefoxbride)
