A proposal full of Surprises | Charleston Engagement Photography | Luke & Lynn

We here at Valerie & Co. Photographers have been dying to share this AWESOME proposal. :-) Luke pulled out all the stops for Lynn and you can read all about it and view a few of their beautiful pictures in the gallery of their White Point Garden proposal on Charleston's Battery!

 Where are you both from? We are both from New York

Where did you two meet? We met at a bar one night out with mutual friends.

How long were you dating before engagement? We were dating for almost 5.5 years before we got engaged.

How did your proposal happen? Luke and I were traveling to Charleston on vacation and for a friend's wedding at Boone Hall Plantation. On the first day we arrived, we walked down to the Battery ("to get picked up by a local friend for dinner") and we sat on a bench in White Point Garden. I had previously mentioned to him that the gazebo was such a romantic spot to get proposed to, but sitting there next to that spot totally went over my head!

At 4:19pm he said his friend was there to pick us up and he wanted to walk through the gazebo. At 4:20pm (our anniversary is April 20), he got down on his knee and proposed to me! :)

After we took photos, we started walking back towards our hotel when he stopped and pulled me into Oak Steakhouse for a surprise engagement dinner. After dinner, he surprised me again with a moonlight sailboat cruise around the Harbor. It was such a beautiful and special day!

What kind of engagement ring do you have, where is it from, and is there a story to go with it? My engagement ring is designed by our friend Mark Terranova from NYC. It is a round diamond with pave diamond band. It is absolutely stunning and exactly what I wanted.
