You may recall the lovely couple who owns and operates local jewelry boutique Fiat Lux from our "Better Know a Store Owner" piece from last month. We didn't think Alexei and Marie could get any awesomer, but now they've gone and gotten engaged via Instagram. On Saturday, Alexei posted the above photo with the following caption:
If you follow this account you know that we rarely use the 1st person. Today's a special exception because I, Alexei, want Marie, partner in life and in the shop, the truest love there ever was, to marry me. So - @rosegoldsf - whaddya say? (Ring by @dazejayn.) #engagement #love #sayyes.
And she did (obviously)! Congrats guys!
