Charleston Proposal Photographer | Mary Louise said, "YES!" at Magnolia

It's crazy to imagine that the love of your life could be right in front of you for a very long time, but not even know it! Really though, it's all about fate's timing which was the case for newly engaged John and Mary Louise. For years these two were always so close to each other, but they didn't actually meet until the time was just right. Check out a few of the Charleston proposal photos of when Mary Louise said, "YES!" at Magnolia Plantation to John & read more about what she had to say on her and John's engagement and their love story! 

Where are you both from?

I, Mary Louise, am originally from Helena, AR but live in Little Rock, AR now. John is originally from Stuttgart, AR and also lives in Little Rock, AR now.

Where did you two meet?

We both went to the University of Arkansas for college and had mutual friends but never met until after college. We were both back in Fayetteville for two different weddings. Everyone went out to the bars after both weddings and we ended up meeting at a bar off Dickson Street called LiT through our mutual friends.

How did your proposal happened?! :-)

John and I dated 5 years before he popped the big question. We were in Charleston for John's work conference and decided to go up a few days early to hang out. That morning I treated myself to a hair blowout then John and I went to a nice brunch at High Cotton on East Bay Street dressed up in my white dress from Steamroller Blues located on the heights of Little Rock, AR and John wearing his khakis and a purple button up shirt. We then went to tour one of the old plantations there. We went on the garden tour first at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens and John had the photographers waiting on us at the perfect spot for him to propose. We got over towards the house and that's where he saw the photographers and got down on one knee!

What kind of engagement ring do you have, where is it from, and is there a story to go with it? 

John got me an engagement ring made at Sissy’s Log Cabin in Little Rock, AR. He went with my mom to get it made there the smaller diamonds are from my grandmothers wedding ring.
