(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.

Find Out Why So Many American Jewelers Are Loving Thai Jewelry (and Gemstones)

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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
