Perfect Engagement

My fiance and I stayed at the River Hotel for our anniversary. The staff knew it was our anniversary and that I planned to propose. They had rose pedals and champagne on ice when we arrived. It just so happened they have live music once a week and the singer was so wonderful. He played our song and I was down on one knee. Could not have been more perfect. Deciding to have our wedding there was a no brainer. Looking forward to it. Thank you River Hotel of Southport!
