Sweet Holiday Engagement Shoot and Proposal Story Thursday, February 1, 2018 ~ 8:00 a.m.

Heath and Chelsea are a beautiful couple with an even more beautiful proposal story! Chelsea was kind enough to share it with us, and it gives me all of the mushy and romantic straight-from-The-Notebook feels!

"Pulling up to the Magnolia Plantation, I was nervous because storm clouds were starting to roll in... We started walking along paths lined by gorgeous trees covered in Spanish moss [and] came across a small tree bench, where we decided to sit and enjoy the view for a few minutes. While we were sitting there, the rain started to come down in buckets, the thunder became louder and louder, and the lightning felt like it was striking within feet of us. When we finally thought there was a small break in the lightning strikes, we decided to make a run for the plantation house.

By the time we got to the porch of the house, we were soaked. We decided to stick around for a few minutes anyway in hopes the storm would pass. We saw a photographer run up onto the porch... she kept looking around like she was waiting for someone and I wondered if she was going to photograph a proposal. Obviously, I wanted to wait and see this magical moment, so Heath suggested we wait a few minutes so we could watch it. About 10 minutes went by and there was still no sign of a proposal happening, so we decided to get ready to leave.

We started running towards the gardens in front of the plantation house, and as we reached the middle of the gardens, Heath stopped abruptly and pulled me in for a kiss... He was holding both of my hands and looking into my eyes with a big grin on his face. I was completely clueless still and wondered what was going on until he started talking and pouring his heart out to me. He then got down on one knee, with the rain pouring over us, and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. My hands were shaking, I was crying tears of happiness, and without hesitation I said, 'Yes!' As we looked back at the house, we saw a small group of elderly tourists watching us, who hollered over to us, 'Well, did she say yes or no?' To which Heath shouted out, 'She said, yes!!' and they joyously cheered for us."
