(PRESS RELEASE) LIGHTHOUSE POINT, FL — Family owned luxury jeweler J.R. Dunn Jewelers launched a giveaway right before Valentine’s Day this year, just before COVID-19 pandemic virtually shut down South Florida. J.R. Dunn wanted to do something special and help one lucky winner “Say it Big” and propose in a huge way — in front of millions of people, on the busiest roadway in South Florida, I-95.

Patrick Callahan of Delray Beach, FL, was the lucky winner. The announcement came in March, but unfortunately COVID-19 forced him to reschedule his elaborate proposal multiple times. Patrick was proposing to the love of his life, Taylor, after six years of being together.

One weekend in August, Taylor thought she was going for a birthday weekend trip down to the Florida Keys, but they made a pit stop at the Deering Estate in Miami, an oceanside historical 1920s estate and garden in Miami once home to Charles Deering. At the center of the Deering Estate exterior along the oceanside are two beautiful rows of palm trees extending out onto the ocean. Patrick led Taylor to the center of this beautiful setting and proposed to her with a beautiful solitaire diamond engagement ring. She said yes! After a celebration, the couple was driving up to a surprise dinner with all their closest family and friends when they passed J.R. Dunn’s billboard reading “Taylor, will you marry me? – Patrick” with one of their most coveted pictures together. Taylor was in awe of the endless surprises Patrick had planned.

Watch their proposal video below this article to see her speechless reaction as they drove up! And it doesn’t stop there; he even arranged a lift to take them up for a photoshoot in front of the billboard!

They continued the proposal with a weeklong journey down through the Keys, stopping at well-known locations along the way including the Cheeca Lodge & Spa in Islamorada, all the way down to their final destination of Key West, all with little surprises and family members along the way.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
