Michael's Engagement Ring

Last night on Bringing Up Bates, Brandon executed an elaborate scavenger hunt proposal that brought Michael to tears.

"Everything that went into our engagement was so thought out and...everything was so romantic," says Michael. In the following video, Brandon shares the meaning behind the ring, which he designed.

  1. This episode made me cry at the end when she was so overwhelmed with love and appreciation for Brandon. I wish more young men would make their engagements as special and meaningful as he did. I can't wait to see the pictures of their wedding next month!

  3. This is so well thought out. I wish I could get the UP channel (or the Bates could move over to TLC) because I would love to watch their show and can't. Karen H.

  11. Brandon put a lot of love in the engagement proposal. And the ring was beautiful. He is a very thoughtful, tend hearted and loving young man with no pretense to his nature. It's funny to see how he interrelates with the younger sister Carlin.at times. He also appears to be a very intelligent young man. A very good match. Love the ring and the design and the meaning behind the design. Great show.

  12. Love the ring. Brandon is a very special young man. He is do intelligent and creative. I liked how he had also designed the wedding cake. He puts meaning into everything. I also like how Brandon does not allow anyone to influence him or change his mind on things. He was set for the wedding to be on a certain date. He did not allow Michele brothers to intimate him on knowing his plans. He was wise. He confided in only her father. He never allowed Micheal sisters to push him around. He is very knowledgeable in biblical things. Loved how he knew the ancient meaning of the number 3 and 8. He and Micheal will make great parents one day. Gil and Kelly did a great job on raising their children. And Brandon' s parents as well.

  13. I really like beading! And I really like the concept of creating interchangeable Jewelry items, especially necklaces and bracelets. What a cool idea!
