Congrats to Maggie & Chase on their engagement! These guys came to Charleston last week with their incredibly sweet and photogenic golden doodle, Lucy, for their Boone Hall Plantation engagement session! Three years ago, Chase proposed to Maggie on the beach hiding her ring in the perfect oyster shell! Lucy, who will melt your heart in an instant, was there for the proposal, the engagement pictures, and (fingers crossed) the wedding as well! I fell so in love with her that I’ll be sad if I don’t see her again! Maggie did an amazing job styling her engagement session! Her blue and white prints pop so brilliantly amid the romantic greenery of resurrection fern that grows so lushly in the summer time on the Live Oak trees in the background. And my heart literally skipped a beat when I saw Lucy’s pink floral garland! How amazing is this couple and their precious Lucy!!!
I love Maggie’s own description of the day she and Chase met each other, “”Did I see y’all at Trader Joe’s earlier today?” It was a Friday night at White Horse Tavern in 2011, and that’s all it took. Perhaps it was the subtlety of my approach amplified by the romantic setting and fueled by the fireball, but not only had I just won a bet with my sorority girlfriends, but also his heart. That chance encounter has made for a great story and led to beautiful friendship–one built on a shared love for cooking and wine, the bond of parenthood to our goofy goldendoodle, and mutual aversion to ice skating. We’ve become quite the little family already and after a long three-year engagement, we’re excited to make things official. We hope we’ll see y’all in Charleston later this year.”
They will be getting married at Lowndes Grove next year, which will be planned by the very talented Lauren Miller of ELM Events! I’m absolutely honored to be part of this special time in their life! Congrats guys!!
