Love birds, Makenzie Standifer and Jimmy Corum have been dating for 4 years and after discovering Tybee Island last summer for Jimmy’s birthday celebration vacation, they decided to make it an annual tradition. They knew Mermaid Cottages would be the perfect place to book their vacation with. Little did Mackenzie know, Jimmy had his own surprised cooked up this year! After arriving to their cottage, Castaway, for the week, Jimmy was so thrilled by all the decorations prepared for his entrance by the mermaids. Happy 31st Birthday Jimmy!

They were so excited to come even though Makenzie hadn’t figured out why. So, the next day, their friends joined them in the living room, (now Mackenzie knows why).

Makenzie and Jimmy-summer engagement on tybee island

“It was our first full day at Tybee, and it was just after we all woke up and had breakfast.. I had ran to the grocery store, and when I came back he had it planned for someone to spill something on the tile (they know a mess will get my attention and I will clean it up)… as I cleaned it up another friend said “What is Jimmy doing?!” so I stood up and there he was on a knee…. All he said was “Can I keep you forever?” He made sure that we had it on video, and had lots of pictures… We spent that entire week together and came back closer than we’ve ever been. Every day we would wake up and look at the ring in awe:)”
