Coronado Island Engagement | Kyle and Kelsey

POSTED IN : Classic, Date Night, Engagements
FILED UNDER :

On the day Kyle had planned to propose to his gorgeous girlfriend Kelsey, it was freezing, pouring rain, and the sky was full of dark clouds.

But Kyle could not wait another day to propose.

Overlooking a beautiful lake in Wisconsin where they had been visiting with Kelsey’s family, Kyle pulled Kelsey aside from their family dinner to take a walk down to the dock to look around.

She immediately laughed and refused – ummmm… maybe another time when it’s not raining?!

But that ring was burning a hole in Kyle’s pocket, so he said, “Well, then I’ll carry you.”

After some awkward mishaps with their umbrella and some stalling to get the timing right, Kyle got down on one knee and proposed to a VERY confused (and freezing cold and soaking wet) Kelsey.

But she was saying yes to a life of laughter with her best friend, so it was the easiest YES she’s ever given.

And even after living in a tiny studio apartment in Chicago for months and months of quarantine, Kelsey and Kyle are still madly in love (and best friends!).

These two have a lightness and joy within them that make them the perfect match. Jeff and I fell in LOVE with them the minute we met!!

Their engagement session was one of those evenings where everything just felt RIGHT. Perfect gorgeous weather, incredible golden light, lovely sweet couple, and a whole lotta love in the air!

We began at Kelsey’s parents’ lovely Coronado home, and then enjoyed the beach at sunset right near Hotel Del Coronado. And it was MAGICAL. Throughout the entire evening, it seemed like time stood still each time Kyle and Kelsey locked eyes. You’re going to love this one, friends!
