Operation Sweet Love, An Epic Surprise Marriage Proposal
Charleston, South Carolina

At rare and seemingly invincible moments, the universe aligns to produce experiences of dazzling, unadulterated joy.  This day - Friday, June 2nd, 2017 was one for the history books!  It arrived after months of meticulous planning between the groom-to-be and the best girlfriends of his bride-to-be.  They all agreed that she was deserving of a proposal epic in proportion, bursting with surprise, and cloaked in storybook romance.

The plan was set.  They would travel to Charleston, SC where she was in residence for the opera at The Spoleto Festival.  Shortly after arriving, they would put their plan in motion by delivering a messenger (also doubling as her photographer!), with the rules and first clue.  Each clue, mostly a swoon-worthy love note with a helpful hint to her next destination, would send her traversing across the beautiful and romantic city of Charleston, where her favorite treats met her at each location, and the very best of all was saved for last.  

For Krysty, this day was one that fulfilled her vision of an exceptionally romantic love that has lived inside her heart for all of the days she has believed in love.  For Ilya, delivering this romance to her was his way of reassuring her that she is truly the love of his life.
