Married by Mom and Dad: A Charlotte Couple Comes Together

When Bethany Layton asked her mother and father to choose her future husband, they wanted to make sure they found someone who reflected her heart’s every desire: kindness, faith, and a genuine heart. Bethany works as a fifth-grade teacher in Charlotte, North Carolina, and has been jaded by dating and her own parents’ failed marriage. Luckily for Bethany, her parents’ choice is a match made in heaven! According to Bethany, her parents haven’t agreed on anything since she was a kid, but their vote for Bethany’s future husband was miraculously unanimous. Watch her parents’ delightfully sweet and creative proposal — you’ll absolutely fall head-over-heels for Bethany’s dad’s amazing proposal idea!

Bethany will be wearing a band from our Charlotte Collection, the perfect choice for a timelessly unique bride with an expressive personality. It’s no surprise that her groom chose a band from our iconic gentlemen’s collection, Artin — according to Bethany’s mother, he’s a gentleman beyond compare.

The parents may have chosen Bethany’s mystery man, but the couple chose their forever captivating wedding bands with help from the experts at Diamonds Direct South Park. Diamonds Direct South Park is a trusted retail partner with experience matching brides- and grooms-to-be with the Kirk Kara engagement ring of their dreams!
