We received dozens of beautiful submissions for our “Your Love Captured” contest, but Katelyn Sims and Layne LaBudde’s engagement photos at Marlsgate Plantation took the cake.

After five years of dating, Layne pulled off a surprise proposal at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville. When she walked downstairs for breakfast, Katelyn saw her mother holding flowers and Layne’s mother holding a box as Layne got down on one knee.

"Layne thought of absolutely every detail for the engagement and made it very thoughtful. He even made sure my nails were done for the occasion."
