Hermann popped the question in 2004 with a weathered platinum band set with nine round diamonds, designed by N.Y.C. jeweler Karen Karch for Push. The style symbolizes the idea that even though the couple will encounter rough patches, there is always a happy moment up ahead. They solidified that notion at the Unitarian Historical Chapel in Santa Barbara, where the pair wed on August 28, 2004, in front of 200 guests. Says Hermann, "I recited my vows so loudly you could have heard them in Oregon. But Mariska's were quiet and small."
