The Proposal

I had just gotten back from a trip to St. Martin and had plans to leave the next day for Ocean Isle Beach with Phillip’s family. He told me that he would be picking me up at 8 am the next morning because his grandmother wanted to take us to breakfast. My flight in from St. Martin had been delayed causing us to get in about midnight, so naturally I was less than excited about this early wake up call. I had a feeling something was up because everyone around me was acting strangely, but Phillip didn’t seem to be acting any differently. When we got to his grandmother’s house in Monticello, South Carolina, he suggested we take a walk before breakfast by the old church across the street (at this point I was getting suspicious). We were walking and talking like normal and then suddenly, he was down on one knee! I’m not even sure of everything he said, all I heard was “will you marry me”. I said “yes, of course!” His cousin Chloe was hiding in the woods capturing this sweet moment on camera, making it one we will cherish forever.

 



In Preparation

Meagan Warren Weddings came highly recommended, so she was one of the first people I booked. I could not have planned this wedding without Meagan or my mom. It could have been overwhelming because there are so many options when it comes to vendors, but Meagan guided me through this whole process with her expertise. The Lace House was very special because my parents had their wedding reception there 30 years ago. We incorporated photos from their wedding day as part of the decor.

 



The Big Day

My father daughter dance was so memorable because we had planned a choreographed dance, with the help of Lindsay Sprague of The Dance Floor. We surprised everyone with our dance to “My Girl” and Missy Elliott. We had a lot of fun doing it! Our band, The Finesse Band, was incredible so we spent almost the entire time on the dance floor with our friends. The whole day was amazing, but Phillip and I both treasured having almost everyone we love in one place at the same time the most. Although we didn’t get a chance to see everyone, we felt so loved having everyone there supporting us.

 



The Retreat

We stayed at Sandals Regency La Toc in St. Lucia and had the best time! We spent most of our time resting and relaxing on the beach, but also traveled between the different Sandals resorts on the island. Some of our favorite moments included an excursion tour of the island, snorkeling at the base of the Piton Mountains, and attending a local street party that is put on every Friday.
