Jude Ridge Customer Spotlight – Jessica & John Fonte
Jessica and John Fonte are an awesome couple from Baltimore, Maryland that Jude Ridge is proud to call customers. Jessica and John took the time to share their love story with us and a little bit about their wedding. We’ve got to say…John gets a 💯 for creativity regarding his gift that led to the proposal.
– How Jessica and John met?
“We met through a mutual friend. I was recently single and new into motorcycle riding and was looking for someone to ride with. I had rode with my parents and their friends, but I was looking for someone who rode Harleys that was closer to my age.
I mentioned it to my friend while at a concert one night and she knew John rode and reached out to him.
We started texting and then talking on the phone. John ended up asking me out on a date before we ever actually rode together. He was extremely persistent for a second date and we’ve been together ever since. 😀”
– How long have Jessica and John known each other?
“We’ve known each other four years this past July. We went on our first date July 11th, 2014, got engaged May 9th, 2018, and got married September 1st, 2018.”
– Things Jessica and John like to do together?
“We love to go to or host watching sporting events. We’re big Orioles, Ravens and Capitals fans! Ride motorcycles, travel or spend time home together with our two cats.”
– How did John propose to Jessica?
“We went on a motorcycle ride down to our favorite bar. On the way back, John pulled over near a water front area to “get his clear glasses” and said he had a gift for me.
It was an Orioles jersey with his last name on it. He knew my first reaction would be “that’s not my last name!”…and he was already on his knee with ring in hand.
The jersey was a plan he had all along and even bought the numbers and letters himself to iron on!”
– Jessica’s ring?
“John picked my ring out all by himself. He knew what I didn’t want and rolled with that. It’s a beautiful platinum band with cushion diamond, halo and twisted band.”
– John’s band?
“John can tend to be rough, so we both knew he needed a ring that could withstand anything he threw it’s way. He came across Jude Ridge on Instagram and knew right away that he had found his ring (The Ridge).
We ended up ordering the wrong size and needing the correct one very close to our wedding. After reaching out to Jude Ridge, I knew we picked the right company to order his ring from, because of how amazing they were to help us with the situation.”
– Jessica and John’s wedding?
“We got married on a beautiful day, September 1st, 2018, at a rustic lodge in the woods near our house with our friends and family. We look forward to our future together!”
Who is Jude Ridge? Premium tungsten bands, premium wood boxes, free worldwide shipping.
Long-time friends, Dan & Rob, were talking about how much of a hassle it was to find the right band when it came time to marry their lovely wives.
Predator-like salespeople giving bad style suggestions, the same old gimmicks, multiple trips to the jewelry store, traffic and what seems like an endless amount of time in-store only to discover that the band choices are terrible, overpriced and worst of all come in a basic velvet box.
That’s when they decided no one else should have to go through what they did (all of the above).
Enter…Jude Ridge. Stylish, scratch-resistant premium tungsten bands that come with a premium wood box and free worldwide shipping at an affordable price.
No pressure. No gimmicks. Just simple, stylish and affordable mailed straight to your door.
