Julianne Hough has revealed photos of her massive engagement ring. The actress got engaged to Brooks Laich in Couer d’Alene, Idaho on August 18.
“It was magical and sweet,” she wrote of the proposal on her blog. “We were at home, romantic, and relaxed, which is perfectly very ‘us.’ We stood on the deck, watching the sun set over the lake and listening to our favorite songs. Not even for a second did I expect that beautiful, serene scene was about to become one of the most meaningful moments of our lives,” she wrote on her blog. “In fact, I was so taken aback when Brooks got down on one knee I completely blacked out! It was like a rush of heat and a wave of uncontrollable emotion swept right through my body. I didn’t have any words at first (me! no words!). All I could do was explode into his arms and experience pure joy from head to toe.”
Hough’s engagement ring was designed by Lorraine Schwartz and features a 6-carat oval cut center stone.
“The ring itself makes me feel very feminine and takes my breath away every time I look down, which I can’t stop doing, by the way,” the Safe Haven star added. “When it comes to taking it off, forget it. I’ll even wake up in the middle of the night to make sure it’s still there! I never thought I’d be the girl sticking her hand out to her friends and screaming in unison but here I am, shrieking all over Los Angeles.”
