Sweeping Spanish moss-covered oak trees, delicately draping lavender wisteria vines, beautifully preserved plantations – Charleston is awash in picturesque locales. One such lovely spot is Middleton Place, a true Charleston treasure that dates back to the 17th century. Described as “the most interesting and important garden in America” by the Garden Club of America, Middleton Place’s 65-acre grounds are overflowing with ombrè waves of azaleas among serene lakes and quaint historic structures, providing infinite ideal settings for a romantic proposal (wink, wink!). Just picture a picnic proposal amidst the blooms – sigh – the magic of Middleton Place. Dreamy backdrop: check. Now scroll on for our round-up of picnic proposal essentials!


Insider’s tip: guests staying at The Inn at Middleton Place are granted access to the grounds after-hours, providing an overly-intimate atmosphere to pop the question.
