Charleston Photographer | Waterfront Park Pier Proposal | Carrie & Chandler

We adore the Charleston Waterfront Park and, occasionally, we get to photograph a shoot in that area with the most popular place being the park's Pineapple Fountain. However, when Chandler asked us here at Valerie & Co. Photographers to capture his proposal to Carrie, he had another romantic spot in mind at the Waterfront Park for the big moment! Chandler settled on proposing along the park pier with it's beautiful views that lookout into Charleston's city harbor. :-) Check out a few of Carrie and Chandler's super sweet Charleston Waterfront Park Pier proposal photos in the gallery and read what Carrie had to say about their proposal and wonderful love story!

I, Carrie, am from Freeland, Maryland, Chandler was born and raised in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and we’re both currently living in Myrtle Beach. In September 2015, Chandler and his friends came into Wicked Tuna, where I worked as a hostess. I didn't seat him but I heard the other girls talking about how there were really cute guys at the table by the window. About an hour later, Chandler walked up to me at the hostess stand and starting chatting with me. He asked if I would like to get lunch the next day and gave me his number. Ever since, we haven't gone a day without talking! We were dating a year before he proposed to me. He picked me up early and told me to get dressed up for a nice day in Charleston. I wore a light blue denim shift dress from Francesca's boutique and he took me to get breakfast at the Belmond Charleston Place Hotel. We then to a stroll and walked down to Waterfront Park towards the water. All of a sudden he was down on one knee! My ring is a gorgeous engagement ring from Vera Wang's LOVE collection.

Luckily, a few months ahead, he let me go with him into Kay Jewelers to pick out what kind of ring I loved. I was torn between two from Vera's collection so Chandler got to ultimately pick which one he liked and it was a bit of a surprise! I couldn't be happier with it. :-) Our wedding will be on November 19th in Mt. Pleasant, SC at Dunes West.
