And the songbirds are singing like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you like never before
–Christine McVie (Fleetwood Mac)
Falling in love is exciting, thrilling, like nothing else. But if you ask me, one of the best parts of finding true love is the quiet sense of peace it brings; the knowledge that you’ve found your other half and the rest of your life can finally begin. It’s like coming home…where you truly belong. The tune ‘Songbird’, with its graceful piano and the lilting voice of Christine McVie, perfectly captures the essence of a forever romance. And I can’t help but think this song fits Meghan and Zack. Maybe that’s because I happen to know they both love Fleetwood Mac. 🙂
Zack proposed to Meghan under the trees at the Battery in Charleston, South Carolina. It was New Year’s Eve, and he’d surprised her with a stop on the way to dinner. The Battery is such a beautiful place…and doubly meaningful because it’s where Meghan’s father had proposed to her mother nearly 31 years before. So very special! And I’m guessing that Meghan’s dad approved. Apparently, very early on in Meghan and Zack’s courtship, her dad confided to her mom that these two were ‘made for each other’. It definitely shows. Their common goals of becoming doctors (they met in medical school) and their kind, generous natures are clearly a perfect fit. Plus, Meghan has one of the most beautiful, strong Southern accents I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing…and Zack loves it too!
Our recent engagement session started in the afternoon at Goose Creek State Park. We eventually made our way to the waterfront docks in downtown Washington, NC. The lighting throughout was just amazing…and at the end we were treated to an absolutely gorgeous sunset. A perfect way to wrap things up! Enjoy these photos from their lovely engagement session. I can’t wait for their big day!
I absolutely love their outfits, so perfect for both locations. Look at that Meghan’s beautiful dress with pockets!
