They were both working at Chick-fil-A a few years ago and when she was at work, that’s what she was focused on. But when he began working there shortly after, all he could focus on was how pretty she was. He didn’t think he had a chance though! Thankfully he was wrong and after a couple months she saw how wonderful he was… and they’ve been inseparable ever since.
After taking her to dinner for her birthday, Koury took Sydney back to her house where their parents and friends were waiting inside. He’d picked her up at the front door for their first date so he wanted that spot to also be where he asked her to marry him! After opening one box, she found another small box that contained the most beautiful ring! And when Koury got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife, she immediately said yes!
I always encourage my couples to find somewhere for their photos that has meaning to THEM. So when Sydney suggested the Chick-fil-A where they met, I laughed and said that was perfect! I’ve taken engagement photos in some interesting places, but this was my first time taking them in a CFA! But it was so them and will give them tangible memories of the place they first met.
Besides, I was able to take a shot of her ring with waffle fries!!! Other than chicken, I don’t know what’s more CFA than that :-)
I asked them how many times they’d changed the letters on this reader board and they just laughed because there’s no way they could count… but this was the first time it would be all for them.
They’re both finishing up their degrees at Winthrop so we went over to campus to finish out their session. The weather was perfect and the sunset as we were finishing was just beautiful!
I love how he can make her laugh!
Y’all, this is the second spot in two blog posts where you’d NEVER guess you were in the middle of a college campus! So pretty!
I asked them to wrap up in each others arms and her smile grew even more…
