Caroline and Bo originally met in middle school. They connected their first year of high school and remained friends. After graduation, Bo left for the Marines and Caroline went to California for two years. After moving home, Caroline decided what her next move in life would be. Bo’s dad reached out to her about nannying his children (Bo’s younger siblings). When Bo was home on leave, the two were able to reconnect. Only this time, it would be forever!
When Bo decided to propose, he took Caroline to his family’s beach house in Florida. The house overlooks the 18th hole and Port St. Lucia, a gorgeous view! Bo told Caroline that they had to get a game of golf in before they left. So, on New Years Day, that’s exactly what they did! When they made it to the 18th hole, Bo told her to putt. She missed and he asked her to take the flag out for him. Inside that 18th hole, Caroline discovered a ring box. Bo got down on one knee and asked her to marry him! His whole family was watching from the balcony and they had her family on video chat to watch the whole thing!
Their wedding will take place at Hawks Ridge Golf Club this spring, so they decided to do their engagement photos there as well! It ties into their story so well and I really enjoyed scooting around in a golf cart with them during their session. These two are so much fun and really just enjoyed each other’s company during their engagement session. They even popped a bottle of champagne! (And brought me a glass too….so sweet!)
Congratulations Caroline and Bo!! Cannot wait for your big day!
