Super Sweet Surprise Proposal – Charleston, South Carolina – Emily & Brian

Brian may have been nervous, but you wouldn’t know it cause he did an amazing job surprising Emily and leaving her breathless! This lovely newly engaged couple have a fantastic love story, and they were kind enough to share a little info about themselves, how they met and fell for each other, their perfect proposal and their future wedding plans to go with these gorgeous engagement pictures.

Brian is from Charlton, MA and Emily is from Spencer, MA. He works as a pharmacist at our local Walgreens, and she is a transplant nurse at the local hospital. They both share a love for the medical field. They met each other at their first job at a nursing home when they were in high school. After graduating high school, they both went to different colleges but remained employees at the nursing home. They’d both come back home to work on breaks, and by the summer after Brian’s second year of college and Emily’s first year, they went on our first date to a mini-golf course. “It didn’t take many dates after that for us to realise what we had was special! Going back to college in the fall was difficult for us as we were two hours apart but for the next three years after that we made it work. Brian was in a 6 year program in college so after I graduated he had another year to complete. After he completed his final year in college we bought our first home in Worcester, MA! It was truly a great experience for us and shortly after buying our home, we adopted our first dog, Poppy!”

They have always loved to travel together, and in the 6 years that they’ve been together, they have been lucky enough to visit many different places. Charleston, South Carolina was a place that they talked about visiting, so they decided to spend their May vacation exploring Charleston. Emily says that she’ll “never forget the day of the engagement. We had looked at the weather for Charleston for the upcoming week we would be spending there and unfortunately it looked like rain for many of the days. Fortunately the day we arrived the weather was beautiful. We decided to take advantage of the weather and quickly dropped our bags off and headed to Magnolia Plantations and then to the Pineapple Fountain. Magnolia Plantation was beautiful, but I could not wait to get to the fountain. I had seen so many photos of the fountain and I could not wait to take a picture of our own there. As we approached the fountain we noticed children playing in the water, what a surprise! We had no idea children were allowed to play in it but now I understand why Brian’s face was white when I looked over at him. I walked around the fountain to see if we could get a photo from a better angle and I did not make it very far before hearing Brian call me over to tell me there was an opening. After that my world stopped. He told me he had a question he has been wanting to ask me for a very long time and next thing I knew he was on one knee in front of me. After that everything seemed like a blur! I could not hear anyone around me, he was all I saw. I stood there for a moment frozen in pure happiness before saying yes!”

“I still find myself staring at my ring and smiling. To me, it is perfect. Brian bought the ring at Descenza in Framingham, MA with the help of my best friend from college. Brian had showed my family the ring and asked for my Dad’s permission 5 months prior to our engagement. As you can imagine everyone was waiting anxiously for the day to come! We are still enjoying our time of engagement and have started looking at venues. We hope to get married in September of 2018.”
