Hitched is a wedding jewelry company based in Chicago, Illinois. This operation is the brainchild of couple Chris and Stephanie Sammons, who found their niche in the wedding ring industry through shopping for their own bands. They strive to provide a streamlined and personalized service that puts each couple’s needs at the forefront. Existing as both an e-commerce platform and in physical showrooms in Chicago and Philadelphia, Hitched creates a thoroughly accessible shopping experience for nearly-weds.
Hitched offers a service where you can select up to five rings from their extensive range and try them on in the comfort of your home. This is ideal for customers with a busy schedule that leaves little time to spend in traditional jewelers. They will send out your selection in your chosen size, allowing you up to five days to pick your favorite. You can also speak with the ring specialists at Hitched regarding their selections of tungsten, platinum, and wood inlay rings. These professionals can help you find the perfect band to remind you of your special union.

Team of Hitched
Co-Founder & Creative Lead
Stephanie’s professional background lies in marketing and advertising. After graduating from Penn State University with a communications and business degree, she went on to work at various advertising agencies, later taking a position as Director of Marketing in the higher ed space, which gave her a great deal of experience at a young age. She was working her way up the corporate ladder, but always knew she wanted something of her own. When Chris presented the idea for Hitched, she was on board, and headed up all branding, marketing, and advertising for Hitched, getting the concept out and in front of newly engaged couples. She knows that a wedding band is one of the most special purchases a person will make in their lifetime, and she is dedicated to providing them with the best possible experience.
Co-Founder & Technical Lead
With a background in supporting startups from idea to product launch, Chris brings business, technology, and systems expertise to Hitched. After studying business and finance at University of Kentucky, Chris went to work for a Fortune 500 Company which, he soon learned, was not his calling; his passion lies in the challenges and breakthroughs of navigating entrepreneurship and building businesses. In 2010 he built his own successful ecommerce business, which he eventually moved on from to take on various Sales Engineering roles at several Silicon Valley tech start-ups. In his heart, however, he wanted to start another business, this time with his wife, Stephanie. Hitched checked all the boxes for a successful business, and Stephanie’s background aligned perfectly with his.
