If there’s one thing that you should know about McKenzie, it’s that she loves fall.
She loves the Autumn colors. She loves the way the cool breezes make every walk in the park absolutely perfect.
So spending a beautiful fall day in the mountains with her best friend Lauren at Parker Binns Vineyards, her absolute favorite winery, wasn’t anything out of the ordinary.
McKenzie made her way up the stairs with Lauren. They walked out onto the balcony at the winery and admired the mountain views and vineyards. A bundle of roses caught her eye. Then, a chalkboard with the word “Finally” written on it. McKenzie panicked a little inside, and tried to pull Lauren back down the stairs, afraid they’d ruin someone’s big moment. “What a lucky lady!” McKenzie thought as she glanced around, hoping to catch a glimpse of the couple.
Instead, a familiar face came into view.
Recognition, confusion, and tears set in as McKenzie watched Ivan walk toward her and get down on one knee. Ivan’s prepared speech was long forgotten as his eyes welled up with tears, and he asked the love of this life to spend forever with him.
Of course, she said yes!
We really can’t say enough about how wonderful Ivan & McKenzie have been! We love their sweet attitudes about everything that comes along in their lives. It showed up in every image we captured of them during their engagement session in downtown Charleston! If you know us, you know we
love adore CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT Charleston!!! It’s a little 3.5 hour drive from us, but it’s always worth the trip. And with Ivan & McKenzie, it was even more worth the drive! We absolutely love these two and we can’t wait for their wedding coming up VERY soon!
But for now, we will be content to stare at this little preview and dream about how truly beautiful this Fall season is going to be.
