Mason + Laiken | Cypress Gardens Proposal

When you think of Cypress Gardens in South Carolina, you may think of The Notebook, cypress trees, and romantic boat rides through the swamp. That’s exactly what Mason had in mind for asking Laiken to be his wife and brought his vision to life during this Cypress Gardens proposal.

During a spring break trip to Charleston with their friends, Mason proposed to Laiken in the rowboats at Cypress Gardens. Mason kept his calm while secretly plotting the day with me, waiting in line for an available boat, and while rowing to their perfect proposal spot. Laiken was caught completely by surprise when she looked over to see Mason holding a ring box. Her reaction was priceless! She responded “are you serious?” through happy tears, and then gave a resounding “YES!”

After the shock wore off, we spent some time taking photos in the rowboat and around the Cypress Gardens property with stunning views of Cypress trees and the blackwater swamp in the background. I loved chatting with the two of them and listening to their stories of meeting at Liberty University and their dreams for the future.

I couldn’t let this story end without adding a little more about Mason’s thoughtful plans for their proposal weekend. The surprise did not end with this amazing proposal, it was just the beginning. When they arrived home, Mason had arranged a surprise engagement party with their family and also a tour at Laiken’s dream wedding venue later that week. I thought this was a wonderfully thoughtful touch and really shows his deep love for Laiken.

I’m so glad I was able to be part of this sweet Cypress Gardens proposal. These two were absolutely made for each other and I wish them so much happiness in their lives together ♥️
