Coeur d'Alene Engagement: Chris & Sydney

Chris and Sydney are both climbers. Both very good climbers in fact. So there was a point when one of her friends asked her to mark out a path for the other climbers (I forget what it's called, but basically Sydney would climb the route and mark the hand holds for those who come after her). This was something Chris did all the time, so he came over and asked her if she needed any help.

He told me that she certainly didn't look like she wanted help, but as he started talking to her things just got easier. She was a lot nicer once you started talking to her apparently. 

So this happened a couple times, and finally Chris sent Sydney a friend request on Facebook accompanied by a message that went something like "Facebook things we should be friends, so I figured why not?" 

Anyway, this would start their conversation, which would lead to their first date, which would of course lead to them falling in love. Both Chris and Sydney are very matter-of-fact, and I loved hearing their story from that perspective. So often I would ask "So, why did you do that Chris?" And Sydney would be like "yeah Chris, why?" - he apparently doesn't talk about his feelings all that much - but I loved their banter, the way they interacted. I'm super excited for their beautiful wedding  this summer.
