There’s nothing sweeter than an engagement session, especially when its filled with this much laughter. We’re also digging the bride to be’s bold green skirt and the future groom’s gingham shirt. Perfect for a shoot on the ever glorious shores of Lake Murray, right? We think so. And there’s a whole gallery of lovely moments captured from Katie Purnell Photography‘s lens for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

From Katie Purnell…Vaughn asked Elizabeth to marry him on New Year’s Eve, at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. He presented to her a spoon ring, remembering years before she once told him she had a strange dream where he proposed with a spoon. He then let her pick out the real engagement ring he knew only she could choose that is a stunning sapphire set in diamonds.
We photographed their engagement where the wedding will be held; at her father’s lake house with many childhood memories. I gave her simple baby’s breath to hold since she plans to carry a bouquet of it for the wedding, and held on tight to Vaughn as he made her laugh and laugh.

When you’ve got the sprawling southern scenery as your wedding backdrop, it’s bound to be an all out lovely day. The details are an added bonus to the charm this soiree from Caroline Lima has to offer. I’m talking the Bride’s incredible veil once worn by her aunts, the graceful florals crafted by her mother and the sweet invitations from Wedding Paper Divas. Hop on over to the gallery for sooo much more.

From Caroline Lima Photography… When Sam saw Caroline for the first time she was in pigtails and yoga pants and he thought to himself “how does a guy like me, get a girl like that?”. Caroline loves his sense of humor, his persistence and his dance moves! Well, he showed his moves on the wedding day!!! In a trip to Cozumel, the sun was setting and Sam got down on his knee by the water! Caroline said YES!!!
They celebrated their wedding surrounded by their family and friends at the Wachesaw Plantation, this beautiful wedding venue in South Carolina. The wedding was just so perfect! It was truly beautiful to see Caroline walking down the aisle with her dad and stepdad! So wonderful!!!! She wore her aunt’s gorgeous veil that both of her aunts wore on their wedding day and her mom did all the flowers. These details make the day so much more meaningful.
