I have a confession…I get when Tommy called to book a surprise proposal in Downton Beaufort for his girlfriend Lauren, I jumped up and down! What an honor to have of capturing one of the romantic things to do in Beaufort SC and anywhere really (like the MOST romantic thing you could do in LIFE)!
Tommy and Lauren met in college a few years ago and after dating in college, moving away to different states, and making the decision to live together again down in Florida, Tommy decided it was time to pop the big question! What was extremely special about this proposal was that Tommy drove all the way up from Florida with his mom.
He even coordinated the entire thing to ensure the Laurens mom, grandma, and sister were all there when he asked the big question!
Another special thing that Tommy did during the proposal was to plan it during a time when Lauren would already be on a “Girls Trip” and expected him to be all the way down in Tampa during the trip. Can you imagine her surprise when she saw him waiting on a swing in Downtown Beaufort SC of all places?! Flowers in hand and dressed to the nines, Lauren was shocked and ecstatic to see her guy!
Immediately after their welcome hug, Tommy presented Lauren with a small box that he slowly opened as he got down onto one knee. By this time there was a small crowd of people who had gathered to watch this special moment along with their friends and family. It was truly magical!
It was truly the most beautiful evening in South Carolinas Lowcountry with beautifully cloudy skies, cool weather, and no rain at all! Celebratory champagne was even brought out by Tommy’s mom! It was truly the sweetest evening and such a thoughtful proposal.
While they may not be searching for wedding venues Beaufort SC, they will surely be joining their lives together somewhere spectacular with the warmest love and support from their friends and family.
I wish you both the most incredible marriage! It was truly a special honor to photograph such an important moment in your lives! I’ve always felt that downtown Beaufort was a special place but now it’s truly memorable. Witnessing the joy you both felt on this day and knowing that the joy was shared by your friends and family was incredible. As you begin this new journey together, I pray that you both continue to find peace and excitement within each other. Preparing for a wedding is a big undertaking and I know that both your wedding and marriage will be as incredible as you are. I look forward to following along on all of your beautiful moments!
I’d love to help you plan the perfect surprise proposal. I actually love working with clients on such a sweet surprise and collaborating on a timeline, locations, and being the “girl with the camera” just hanging out until the proposal happens!
