A Paris-Inspired Beach Proposal

I think I’m still on my own Style Me Pretty Destination wedding feature high from yesterday, so while I’m floating on Cloud 9,  let’s float on over to Paris shall we? So I’m really itching to visit France this summer and this oh-so-sweet beach proposal set to the tune of love in Paris might be able to hold me over for a little while. I can’t tell you how excited I was to get this little love fest in my inbox from one of our favorite photographers, Brooke Christl. And I couldn’t let this love week pass by without featuring it! Although Melanie and Shane actually got engaged in October, I find it most appropriate to share on one of the most popular proposal weeks of the year. Approximately 10% of all proposals happen on Valentine’s Day!

Let’s pause for a moment- do any of my OSB readers have a new little shiny something on their left hand ring finger after V-day? TELL me and we’ll be sure pop the champagne, poor us a glass and celebrate with you!

So back to the Paris-inspired beach proposal that I can’t get enough of! So Shane originally planned to propose to Melanie in Paris, but after their schedules didn’t allow for travel he came up with Plan B and brought Paris right to their home-town South Carolina beach. And what would any good man do when he wanted to pop the question in a big way? Of course he brought in Gigi Noelle Events to help coordinate everything! Ladies- aren’t we so proud of Shane? He deserves a round of applause for doing that- like seriously! Set up with a violinist, a romantic dinner, a lovely table scape and chandelier decor, an ahhhmazing cake, and their family waiting in the background who later joined them for dinner- this proposal sounds absolutely PERFECT!

Of course she said YES! We’re so glad Brooke was there to capture every moment so we can relive those moments with them photo by photo…

BIG congrats to Melanie & Shane on your upcoming nuptials and life-long journey together! We wish you much love and happiness!!
