It all happened when Charlie tricked Mary into thinking he had the proposal planned for their trip to visit family in Louisiana. But Charlie had something different in mind. The Saturday before their trip, while Mary was working here at Walton's, he spent the day cooking her favorite meal, picking up flowers, and nervously preparing for her return home. As she pulled into the driveway, he was down on one knee and presented her with a Walton's ring box. Mary says, "He really pulled it off! I wasn't expecting it all all, I screamed, 'What!?' over and over again. I was so shocked!"
Their engagement photos were taken by K Mizell Photography during the most beautiful time of year at Percy Warner Park in Nashville.
Mary's engagement ring features a beautiful Old Mine cut diamond, bezel-set in cushion-shaped border of black enamel in 18k yellow gold.
