Sydney and Jack

Jack and I were heading to Carmel for a belated 3 year anniversary celebration. We didn’t really have much planned except to relax, eat, and shop since we hardly ever get to get away for a weekend. Jack is a golfer from England, so his favorite place in California is Pebble Beach. I’d never been there but heard it is gorgeous, so Saturday we planned to go there, see some of the course, and have lunch in the clubhouse (which has a great view of the ocean). While we were there, we came up to the 18th hole which is literally right next to the ocean. We kind of just stood there for a second, looking out at the beautiful day, talking about life. He put his arm around me and told me how much he loved me, and the next thing I knew he was fiddling in his pocket. I was so in shock I couldn’t even process what was happening. There he was, on one knee holding out a beautiful ring and asking me to spend the rest of my life with him.

Of course I said yes immediately and was so thrilled and surprised. We started heading up the hill to the clubhouse restaurant and before I even realized it, all of our best friends and my family came running down the hill yelling with excitement. I absolutely LOST IT at this moment. As if this day wasn’t perfect enough already, he had coordinated with everyone that means the most to us and got them there to celebrate; he even got my best friend who lives in D.C to fly out! They were there to witness and capture the entire proposal on camera. Needless to say it was the PERFECT day. I later found out that he had been meeting with 2 of my best girl friends for lunch for the previous few months planning with them and showing them the progress of my ring being made.
