As Luke got down on one knee Margaret couldn’t help but let her emotions show. Of course, as soon as he mentioned stopping at the cabin she knew what was coming. The cabin was built by Luke’s grandparents and he couldn’t count the memories he had there. Now he would add to that library of memories by asking Margaret to be his wife.
Margaret could hardly believe what was happening, and on that chilly January day he asked her to marry him with the ring that his mom wore. She was stunned that his mom would decide to pass down her ring as an heirloom to them and took a moment before realizing she need to answer. Her anticipated yes broke the silence and they thought about how far they had come and where they were yet to go.
Had it really been 3 years since they drove down to North Carolina with friends and she ended up spending three days with his family? It was on that trip that they realized they were falling for each other and now three years later they were engaged. If there is one thing magical in the world it is falling in love. If there is anything better than falling in love it is staying in love, and Luke and Margaret have everything they need to do so.
Surrounded by family and friends and were married in the amphitheater at Andrew Jackson State Park in South Carolina. I felt privileged to be among those at the wedding and document the day that took place. If you need to catch up on part I of their wedding view this post, otherwise take a look at their wedding day, starting with the portrait I took of the two of them…
the party moved back in to the amphitheater where Luke and Margaret started off the dancing which continued from then well in to the night.
while the amphitheater was packed with dancers and the stars twinkled overhead and captured photos of both. It was a clear and gorgeous night that ended with a fabulous sparkler send off.
Congratulations again Luke + Margaret! View the complete set of images at their online gallery here and don’t forget to leave a comment on this post – I hope you enjoyed getting an in depth look at their unique day!
