Shawn and I had planned our yearly trip to Foley Beach, South Carolina and to Savannah, Georgia. We road tripped to Foley Beach from Georgia our first day of the trip and had a beautiful room on the water. The next morning we woke up and got ready to start our adventure to all the beautiful plantations. Before we left Shawn asked for us to take a picture in the mirror , which I thought was strange , I am usually the one to initiate a picture.( He sent it to the photographer he hired ) We had breakfast at the cutest little restaurant! After that our first stop was Magnolia Plantation, it had beautiful lush gardens with bridges over ponds , I was super excited because we were visiting in the fall ! Shawn and I were walking through the gardens and we came to a beautiful red bridge surrounded by water , we both were looking around and soaking it all up , I had my back to him and when I turned around he was down on one knee, and asked me to marry him !
My first response was “really right now !?” That was the first thing that came to my mind because we had been talking when we would get engaged and I kept telling him that the south during the fall would be the perfect time ! He automatically shut me down and said there was no way it was going to happen. Little did I know he had been planning this for months. He had it all planned he had talked with our family jeweler to create the most beautiful ring , found the most beautiful spot to propose and hired a photographer to capture the best moment of my life ! Marrying my high school sweatheart is a dream come true , he had talked with all my family before we had gone on our trip and they were all waiting for the big call after he proposed ! I couldn’t have pictured a more perfect proposal !
