Sydney & Alex first met at Auburn while playing a game of pick-up ultimate frisbee, but far from the typical love story, the interest just wasn’t there at the first hello. They remained friends however all through college. Then, nearly six years after that first meeting, they ran into each other four hours away from Auburn, where they reconnected and their romantic relationship began.
That summer they were inseparable. You see, Sydney had received an amazing scholarship to spend eight months teaching English in Italy, and being the wise man he is, Alex embraced the preciously little time they had left on the same continent. They hiked, ziplined, spent probably far too many hours watching Game of Thrones, dined, and spent time doing what great friends do. And when the summer ended, Alex was there at the airport, overjoyed to have already planned multiple trips out Sydney’s way. In his words, “what better area to visit your significant other in than the beautiful and romantic alpine slopes of Northern Italy!?” It was here in those moments of excitement that Alex realized that he wanted to marry Sydney, and he never looked back.
Then one day, Alex decided it was time to take the plunge. Both lovers of the outdoors, Alex planned a romantic weekend in the mountains of North Carolina, where on the highest peak Georgia has to offer, amidst a breathtaking view of the horizon, Alex proposed to the woman of his dreams. Much to his relief, Sydney ecstatically said yes.
