Engaged In The Garden | Will & Amanda's Magnolia Plantation & Garden Proposal

It's been such a beautiful spring in Charleston and we've got more pretty pictures from the season to show for it! Magnolia Plantation & Gardens is gorgeous all year round but we just love seeing the azaleas at springtime. Amanda and Will got engaged in the garden right on the water and there are SO MANY flowers in bloom that it gave their proposal images a secret garden enchanted charm! We asked Amanda a few questions about their propsal so keep reading for the answers to our questions and to see a few of their charming photos.

Where are you both from? 

I am from Scranton, PA. Will is from Highlands, NC and currently we live together in Charleston, SC.

How did the proposal happen?

Will texted me earlier that week asking if I wanted to go walk the gardens then grab dinner at Middleton Place afterwards. We had dinner reservations there in January however Will got called into work so we had to cancel. We got to Magnolia Plantation in the late afternoon as it was very busy for Easter weekend. We were making our way along the path and Will wanted to grab a picture by the white bridge. After taking a selfie on my phone, Will took my hands and got down on one knee. I was so so surprised and happy! He asked me to marry him and opened up the box to reveal a gorgeous Tacori ring. What made our moment even more special was that it was perfectly captured by Val & Ed. I had no idea he had all that planned out; he even went there after work earlier that week to scope out the perfect proposal spot!

What kind of engagement ring do you have? 

I adore my Tacori classic crescent ring. While I worked one Saturday in February, Will went to the Tacori event at Diamonds Direct to learn about their different styles. I may have dropped some  subtle hints the past few weeks but little did I know, he already bought the ring!
