warren and i visited bluboho three times before finally landing on the petal ring. the first time was back in 2017, when we simply walked in and browsed the wedding collection. this was one of the first times i saw this collection (although i have been visiting bluboho for years!) and i was floored. the following march we made an appointment with the queen st. store manger and she gave us the full run down—truly star treatment. from the second we walked in the door, we felt so special. she made the experience feel so exciting rather than overwhelming, and i really trusted her to help me find something that represented us well. i left with some favourites but knew that i had some time to think about it.
back at our home in vancouver, i was browsing the website and spotted the petal ring. i knew it instantly—sapphire, texture, and an arching shape. it was perfect. when we were back in toronto that summer, we met with sabina again and the decision was easy. sabina and the other girls there teared up as we made the final decision and we were so touched. i felt that they were right there with me through it all. to top it off, they let me know that it would take a few weeks to have it made but that they would have my mom bring it out to me for the wedding later that summer. we headed to the cottage for the week, and much to my surprise, the girls had arranged to have it expedited! it was done before i got home and i got to bring it back with me to vancouver. they included the sweetest note, and we were incredibly moved by their thoughtfulness and generosity.
