Rod and Amy aren’t currently living in Charleston, but the holy city is the start to their love story and the place where Rod and Amy first met. When Rod decided he wanted to ask Amy to marry him, he knew they had to go back to that beginning to pop the big question. :-) Rod even arranged for Amy’s family to come to Charleston too so they could all celebrate together afterwards! Rod also picked out a perfect place to propose to Amy, the picturesque Pitt Street Bridge, in Mt. Pleasant.
Pitt Street Bridge, or as it’s officially named, Pickett Park Recreation Area, was once the site of a pre-revolutionary bridge between Mt. Pleasant and Sullivan’s Island made of floating planks and barrels. Later a trolley bridge was built in it’s place and today many of the roads on Sullivan’s Island are still named for the trolley station stop numbers. Eventually this bridge over the Cove Inlet was demolished as the newer Ben Sawyer Bridge could better accommodate boat traffic below and vehicle traffic above. The Pitt Street Bridge is now a beautiful and scenic park with a long greenway and a pier made from some of the remains of the old bridge. When you pair this location’s breath-taking views of the surrounding, cities, marshes, and inlet with all the site’s history, the park gives you a sweet natural and nostalgic feeling, easily making it one of the most beautiful spots to propose!
