~ Real Engagement ~ Caroline + Shea

Caroline + Shea have one of the best proposal stories EVER!

While on a weekend road trip to Charleston, the two stopped off at Middleton Place Plantation (a venue which Shea's brother had suggested they stop off at on the way out of town). After leading Caroline through the sprawling acres of gardens, he stopped them at an oak tree overlooking the Butterfly Lakes. Just as Shea was trying to capture the scenic view via selfie, a nice tourist offered to take a picture of the two of them. She took a few with Shea's phone and then offered to take a few with her professional camera and email it to them. After positioning the couple under a tree, she said “That’s perfect." “One more thing,” Shea added, as he pulled away from Caroline, while pulling a box from his pocket and dropping to one knee. Unbeknownst to Caroline, Shea had booked this trip months in advance, had crafted the perfect itinerary so as not to arise my suspicion, and he'd hired a photographer to capture the moment. And Caroline's answer was, “of course!”

So sweet!! I can't wait for these two to get married next March!
