Congratulations to Matt and Kellie! The two met during their time at Mississippi State, and bonded over their passion for hockey; Matt was the captain of Mississippi State's hockey team, and Kellie was the general manager! Matt proposed by setting up a romantic scene in his backyard, complete with handmade mason jar candle holders, flowers, champagne and a sign that read "Will you marry me? Check Yes or No". Kellie, of course, checked yes! We are thrilled for the happy couple, and we know that Melba "Maw-Maw" Walton is, too! (Kellie is one of Melba, our founder's, granddaughters ❤️) We wish you both a lifetime of happiness together! Your photo is officially on the Wall of Love! 😘

The most perfect elopement! We just adore these two! Congratulations to Matthew and Rachel!
Congratulations to Larry and Nicole! The lovely couple were married this past year at a stunning venue in Chicago. We can't decide which we love more; her dress, the venue, the color palate or her fabulous Old European cut diamond engagement ring (we may be a bit bias towards her ring 😘)! We wish you two a lifetime of happiness together and are honored to be a part of your love story! 💕

Congratulations to Tutt and Clarissa! You must take a moment to read through their love story, as told by Clarissa below. There are so many Franklin connections that it makes our hearts flutter! The last little bit of the story (read to the end!), means so much to us, and is one of the many reasons why we love what we do and the people we meet along the way.
"Tutt and I were formally introduced at the 1st annual Pilgrimage Festival through mutual friends during the very last concert on Sunday, September 27th, 2015. (Willie Nelson). Needless to say we were both were hooked at first sight!
Tutt and I both grew up in Franklin, TN, attended Battle Ground Academy and, after many separate paths and travels had moved back to the area.
After realizing this was the man of my dreams, Iwas struck one day by a Walton post of my now wedding ring. I snuck into Walton's on a whim after seeing the ring that I could not get out of my head. This ring reminded me of my mother's full wedding set, yet had its own very unique and everlasting twist. I have never been a girl who knew what type of ring I wanted when I was married, but upon first sight of this ring, just like first meeting Tutt, I just knew it was meant to be forever. I visited Walton's twice on my own (first time would not even touch the ring......but it lured me back and I knew it was the one). My best friend hinted to Tutt about my secret adventure (without my knowledge) and Tutt went to Walton's twice as well, the first time on his own to look, the second, accompanied by his wonderful mother, to purchase the special ring.
Tutt proposed on the Friday of the Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta National on April 8, 2016 on the 4th hole ("Flowering Crabapple"), which is my absolute favorite hole in golf and one of my favorite places in the world. He patiently waited until all golfers had played the hole for the day and we were the only ones left in that area. He got down on one knee and I am pretty sure I said Yes before he could finish his perfect speech.
Tutt and I were married on April 1, 2017 in Pawley's Island, South Carolina at the Heritage Club in a gorgeous outdoor setting on the creekside of the island. We spent a week celebrating with close friends and family. The wedding was absolute perfection and will be a day we reminisce about for years to come. Our wedding date was exactly one year to the day that Tutt purchased the ring!
We were lucky enough to return to the Masters gold tournament the week after our wedding and returned to Hole 4, the place of our engagement, this time as husband and wife.
Although photos are not allowed to be taken on the Augusta National golf course, we did get one photo at their visiting site. Here are a few photos of our wedding ceremony and of course, the exquisite and most special piece of jewelry in my life.....the Walton's ring.
I cannot express how much I adore and love my ring and how truly perfect it is as the symbol of our love and life together. Tutt and I cannot thank all of the staff at Walton'senough for their help, love and support. We will definitely be seeing you again in the future!! :)
As a very special side note, another piece of jewelry I wore at my wedding was my "borrowed" item from one of my cousins. My cousin was given this piece of jewelry (an antique gold clasp bracelet lined with gorgeous emerald shaped amethyst) by my late grandfather, in honor of my grandmother, at her own wedding. This bracelet was one of my late Grandmother's absolute favorite pieces of jewelry, which she had purchased years ago on a trip to visit us in Franklin......she purchased this precious piece at no other then Walton's. I cannot begin to describe the emotional feeling of having this bracelet on during my special day.....she was truly right beside me through this piece."
Congratulations to Matthew and Rachel!
"Matthew and Rachel met eleven years ago in high school and fell in love pretty quickly thereafter. Their engagement story is simple, an early morning in their living room with a quick profession of love from Matthew and a quick 'YES' from Rachel in her pajamas. They celebrated with mimosas and Matthew's amazeballs French Toast, and then whisked away that same morning to a photo session with the lovely Erin McCall, a talented photographer who just happens to be a lifelong friend and honorary little sister of Rachel's."
We adore this couple and their engagement photos! (Rachel's shoes are so fabulous, very Carrie Bradshaw!) We wish them much happiness in their future together as Mr. and Mrs.!
Congratulations to Brandon and Jocelyn! The pair were married in a gorgeous, intimate ceremony with friends and family in Nenagh, Co, Tipperary Ireland this past May. From her light blue gown, to the incredible scenery, we could not be more in awe of their special day! "Love, life, happiness. May your troubles be few and your blessings be plenty."

Nothing makes our hearts flutter more than something beautiful and old (I mean, we are in the antique jewelry business after all!). Our hearts skipped a beat when Courtney sent us pictures of her and Nick's wedding day! The two got married in Courtney's hometown of Sharonville, OH. Her 1920's engagement ring paired perfectly with her wedding dress, the same dress that her mom wore in 1961!! Congratulations to Courtney and Nick!!!
Congratulations to Mitchell and Candice! We first met the couple when they came to Walton's together looking for an engagement ring. They found the perfect one and before we knew it, Mitchell was down on one knee proposing to Candice in our showroom! It was such a magical moment, that has since been followed by a stunning wedding day! We feel so humbled and blessed to have such wonderful people share their love stories with us. We wish you two a lifetime of love and happiness!
We just love seeing our Walton's couples on their wedding day! See a sneak peek of the stunning pictures from photographer Alison McQuain below! You can check out all the detail shots (including Bitsy's beautiful ring!) on her blog: www.alisonmcquain.com Congratulations to Ben and Bitsy!
You may recognize these two love birds from their engagement pictures we posted a while back... Now, it's official! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Smith! The pair looked stunning on their big day! (We are just a little obsessed with that veil!!!) Anna and her family have been long time Walton's friends and supporters. The last photo brought us to tears as it shows the generations of the George Family and their Walton's rings! We are humbled by the love you all have shown us. We are honored to be a part of all of your love stories!
Congratulations to Julianna! You may recognize her from her engagement story we posted back in September! Here she is on her wedding day wearing a gorgeous pair of diamond and sapphire Walton's earrings to top off her stunning wedding day look! Congratulations to the beautiful bride!
