Military Engagement - Part One
We are smitten with Christa and Tim's engagement session at Wormsloe Plantation. These two only have eyes for one another and Wendy from Apt. B. Photography captured their love story beautifully! We just adore how Christa describes Tim, saying "I found my best friend and the love of my life all in one person." Swoon! That is what it's all about, y'all.
Tell us about the proposal!
On Thursday evening of April 9th, 2015, Tim gave me a letter. The letter told me to pack my bags because we were going on a mini vacation. The destination… unknown. The next morning we left for South Carolina. We got on a ferry and rode it across to a little island called Daufuskie. There were few cars on the island so we rode golf carts everywhere. Dafuskie is known for its rum, golf, and alligators!
Tim rented the most romantic beach house that was yards away from the ocean. I kept receiving letters for every month we had been together full of happy memories of our last few years together, up until he proposed. I think there were 35 of them total.
The last letter said "let's go take a walk." So we left the beach house and walked down the steps to the beach that afternoon, where Tim had a photographer waiting and he proposed ocean side on April 11th, 2015.
I'm not going to lie, I have no idea what he said because I was too busy freaking out about my ring… but it was all so perfect. Afterwards, we popped a bottle of champagne and toasted to our engagement. I can't tell y'all how long I waited for that day!
