Right now in Charleston, Spring time is trying really hard to make its way here early! We have had a few unseasonably warm days, flowers are starting to bloom, and of course now there is pollen everywhere. (lol who's ready for allergy season?) Lucky for Jaymin when he proposed to Arica during their visit to The Holy City, they missed the height of all the pollen that's starting to set in but got to enjoy the surprisingly pleasant February weather and the beautiful grounds of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. :-) After the big moment Arica couldn’t wait to share the exciting news and immediately called to Facetime with her family. It was all so sweet and pretty picture perfect! Add to it that this pair is probably THE cutest couple ever, and it’s easy to see why we just love their proposal photos! We asked Jamyin to tell us more about the two of them and you can read that now while enjoying a few images from their Magnolia Plantation proposal in the gallery!

There is a Frank Sinatra rendition of the song, “Christmas Waltz,” that has this perfect line describing Christmas as, “That time of year, when the world falls in love.” To us, those lyrics best portray the magical feeling you can sense all around in this special season.
