Marshall Pierce & Company Announces Winners Of “Perfect Proposal” Contest

Three Stories Stood Out As Winning Entries

When Marshall Pierce & Company launched the “Perfect Proposal” contest in late 2013, hundreds of touching, thoughtful and lighthearted entries were submitted in hopes of winning the grand prize–a $10,000 gift certificate toward a Forevermark diamond engagement ring.

Looking closely at stories, pictures, videos and votes, our selection committee was able to narrow down the entries to three finalists.

Winner:

One prospective groom came up with an “out of this world” proposal. The plan involves a high altitude ballooon and a GoPro® camera (not to mention parachutes and GPS devices).

Runners Up:

One potential bride is singing “These Boots Are Made For Walking” (into your heart) using the Stray Boots scavenger hunt application.

This ready-to-cook groom-to-be isn’t ready for any celebrity chef gigs (in fact, he’s pretty much a cooking neophyte), but he is taking cooking classes to surprise the love of his life with a perfect proposal.
