Cantrell, when did you know that you wanted Yvonne to be your wife?
I knew Yvonne was the one within our first week of dating. Of course I was smitten by how gorgeous she is, but her inner-soul (caring, nurturing, compassion) told me she is the one I want to grow old with.
Yvonne, when did you know that Cantrell was the man that you wanted to marry?
I knew Cantrell was the man I wanted to spend the rest of life with on our 3rd date. I was sitting next to him and thinking to myself… “he’s the one.”
How did you celebrate your engagement? Who did you tell first?
I proposed to Yvonne while we were vacationing at Turks and Caicos. However, as soon as we landed back in the US, we called our parents. Months after our announcement, Yvonne’s mom threw us an engagement party in Los Angeles.
Tell us about the ring! Did he pick it out himself or have help?
Cantrell had total autonomy with the engagement ring. I only told him that I like emerald cut diamonds and the rest was up to him. I told him that anything he picked for me would be perfect because I knew it came from his heart. So, he picked a solitaire emerald cut diamond ring – set on a white gold band – with diamonds set along the band.
