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, 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!
On May 19th, Caroline and Bo tied the knot at Hawks Ridge Golf Club. Yes, my very own royal couple! It was the perfect venue as golf was a part of their engagement story. Caroline & Bo were comfortable and familiar with the space as Bo’s family is a member of the club. So, their wedding day really felt very at home. We had also shot their engagement pictures at the venue as well. Just near the ceremony site were two beautiful cottages nestled right next to each other. Caroline and her girls were in one and Bo and his guys were in the other. It was the perfect location to hang out and get ready with their best friends! The backside of the venue overlooked the golf course and a beautiful lake. They danced the night away on the back porch and their guests had a blast! Caroline has one brother and gained so many wonderful sisters on her wedding day! Her Matron of Honor was Bo’s older sister. I love that she is so close with his family. I noticed throughout the reception that Bo and Caroline’s mom would share inside jokes and many laughs with each other. I went up to Caroline and pointed their direction and she said, I know, they just love each other! It was easy to see how well these two families will become one from here on out. Caroline and Bo have a wonderful support system behind them and I’m so happy that their wedding day was everything they wanted and more!
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. MacInnis! Thank you for letting me be a part of your story!
