We're Engaged!

I am still in shock that Tyler and I are engaged! I am excited to share the story of the proposal and how perfect the day was.

Tyler was on spring break from law school a couple weeks ago, so I flew down to Charleston to meet him for a few days. As y'all know, Charleston is my favorite place on earth. We stayed at the Inn at Middleton Place which is located right next to the beautiful Middleton Place Plantation. We stayed there back in the fall and fell in love with the plantation. On March 6, Tyler arranged for us to take a carriage ride around the plantation. After the carriage ride, we walked around the gardens for a couple of hours and simply enjoyed the plantation grounds. He eventually led me under a live oak tree that overlooked the Ashley River that had spanish moss hanging down from it. It was absolutely beautiful. This is where he proposed. It was the happiest moment of our lives! I was shaking throughout the entire proposal and just couldn't believe it. Afterwards, Tyler told me he had another surprise and pointed to a professional photographer that he had hired to capture the proposal. I was completely shocked! Afterwards, we took a bunch of pictures together and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon outside. I was so excited to call our families and tell them the good news (which they already knew). We wanted to enjoy the engagement before telling everyone so we waited until after dinner to tell our friends the good news.

Tyler literally did everything perfect from driving to Little Washington to ask my dad's permission to setting up the most romantic day. I am just so excited for our life to begin!

Here are a few pictures from the proposal!













Thank y'all for your love and support of Tyler and I! We are so excited for all of the planning to start!
