Gate of Time Zelda Inspired Wedding Bands
We always enjoy creating our Zelda inspired engagement rings, but some of our best projects have been once it is time for the ceremony and we get to design a matching wedding band.
Back in 2014, Robert proposed to Jeannette with a series of clues written on Zelda themed scrolls that led her back to the arcade where they had their first date!
When it came time for their wedding, they decided to create a custom wedding jacket based on the Gate of Time to bring the Zelda theme full circle.
Jeannette's 14K gold wedding jacket features the Gate of Time symbols engraved throughout the bands. For accents stones, we used nine diamonds and as well as a ruby, sapphire, and emerald to represent the triforces of power, wisdom, and courage.
"A few months before January 17th, 2014, I decided it was finally time to propose to Jeannette. It was during this time I came up with several different ideas on how to do it, some of which I told her, regrettably, mainly to keep up appearances since this was a subject of discussion at the time. Finally it dawned on me and I came up with a fool proof plan to carry through. In order to keep her in the dark, I hid everything under the guise of getting a new couch since we were both wanting a new one.
Fast forward to the 17th of January, I managed to write four scrolls with various clues. The first one was just the starter but the other three had a red, blue, or green ribbon on it with a clue to the next location and what specific aspect related to her based on the ribbon color and the triangle I had drawn on it. She eventually followed these scrolls to the final one located in the area where our first date was, Pinball Pete's in East Lansing. It was here that she and her brother had found me playing Raiden. After some very brief small talk, I got down to one knee and proposed to her on the spot.
She was taken back by it all since she didn't expect it whatsoever and thought she was just there to pick up an item. She said yes but something did backfire, she asked where her couch was."
We wish them both a wonderful marriage and a lifetime of joy together! For anyone who is wondering, we're happy to report Jeannette eventually got her couch.
