What an adventure with Lauren + Jonathan | Proposal Savannah Georgia at Wormsloe
From the moment Jonathan and I started planning the perfect proposal for Lauren, I knew this couple was special. It started like any other proposal. Jonathan reached out wanting to create a romantic proposal for his girlfriend. Jonathan wanted to take Lauren to Cumberland Island. His plan was to get down on one knee in front of the ruins and ask the girl of his dreams to marry him. Hoping for perfect back lighting and wild horses roaming in the background with the ground covered in rose petals was the envision and I was all for it.
A month out, I bought my ferry ticket, made arrangements to drive and meet Lauren’s sister on the ferry. As the week gets closer, the National Weather Service declares an emergency evacuation for Savannah and surrounding areas for Hurricane Dorian. With only 3 days remaining before our trip it was looking like we needed a back up plan.
Luckily, no damage came from Hurricane Dorian, however Cumberland was still closed until further notice. Meaning, we had to come up with a backup plan fast since the proposal was suppose to happen in less than 24 hours now! I worked with Jonathan and Lauren’s sister Katie to tell them my top 3 favorite spots. After looking at a few of my previous proposals at Wormsloe Plantation, it was a done deal this was going to be the place Jonathan asked Lauren to marry him.
Katie, who Lauren had no idea was going to be in Savannah, reached out to me that morning asking me the plan. I told her I would bring my son Charlie, who was 6 months at the time and my husband to be the decoy…The plan was to take their photos as my disguise to keep Lauren from suspecting anything and have Katie Pop out of my car to surprise her. (man was she surprised! I think maybe even more the getting engaged!) haha
And Y’all, LOVE and Magic happened from that moment on. See the Photos below to see the excitement on Lauren’s face. and continue to Part II of this blog to see my Elopement with Jonathan + Lauren to Positano, Italy.
