Bellevue Iowa Spring Engagement

August 9, 2023

Sydney + Jeff

When Sydney & Jeff volunteered at a local c0vid vaccination clinic, they may have guessed they’d be earning some good karma. What they may not have guessed is that the universe was going to make that karmic pay-off pretty much immediate. The two started talking and hit it off right away. As the clinic closed and they were walking out, Jeff gave Sydney his number, and the rest is history.

“She makes me the man I want to be when I’m with her.” – Jeff

The happy couple took a trip to Cancun with friends. One night, the group was on the beach, taking photos at sunset. When it was Sydney & Jeff’s turn to get a photo, Jeff knelt down on one knee in the sand and popped the question. Sydney said the proposal was “perfect.” She came home with the best souvenir ever on her left ring finger!
