Dominick’s plan to ask Anastasia to marry him is a holiday proposal like none other. He first convinced Anastasia that they should take a few days before Christmas to relax and have fun in Charleston before all the craziness of the holiday set in. Dominick then arranged lots of surprises for her and contacted Valerie & Co. Photographers to secretly capture the moment when he would pop the big question!
On that day, Dominick quietly slipped away while Anastasia was getting ready in the hotel room. When she went down to the lobby, Dominick was not there, but instead, the hotel manager greeted Anastasia with a bottle of wine, a present, and a limo waiting out front. She got in the limo and as it drove on, she sipped a glass of wine and opened the gift box. In it was an ipad and a note from Dominick that said push play. What began to play on the ipad was a sweet slideshow of their pictures together set to their favorite music.
By now, the limo had arrived at a Charleston destination that Anastasia and Dominick always talked about going to; the Boone Hall Plantation. The beautiful plantation was decked for the holidays and there, just outside the wreath adorned entrance to the grounds, stood a romantic horse-drawn carriage, one you might imagine riding in on a cool Christmas evening! The carriage took Anastasia up the famous "Avenue of Oaks" to the front of the Boone Hall Plantation house trimmed in red bows & pine garland. Dominick was anxiously waiting as the coachman stopped the carriage for Anastasia and softly, the sounds of music, started to play.
Once Anastasia heard those first few notes of “their song,” begin, she knew that this was something BIG! Dominick went down on one knee, pulled out a gorgeous diamond ring, then asked Anastasia to marry him. With Dominick’s deep love for Anastasia, the number of special surprises he had for her, his attention to the details, and all of that topped in the romantic surroundings of the magical holiday season, Anastasia easily and emphatically said yes to Dominick! The photography of the couple’s happy event continued on while the two of them celebrated, drank champagne, rode in the carriage, and explored Boone Hall Plantation together.
