We are excited to be sharing the cutest tennis themed engagement session with vintage details! Cody and Alex are both tennis coaches and they met playing tennis – a ‘match’ made in heaven.
Their story: In the fall of 2010, Alex began teaching at Portland High School in Cody’s hometown of Portland, Michigan. Alex started volunteer coaching the boys and girls tennis teams, and Cody, who played varsity tennis at PHS, occasionally ran tournaments and helped coach. Cody and Alex interacted during their meetings and felt drawn to one another, but the timing wasn’t quite right for them yet. The following summer, while coaching tennis together of course, Cody felt the time was right to try and court Alex. Although she was oblivious to Cody’s advances, everyone around them could see the beginnings of romance happening, something Alex is still teased about by her tennis players. Alex finally gave in to Cody’s persistence, and their relationship has been nothing short of a storybook romance since.Alex and Cody took a trip to New York City for spring break 2015. Alex thought that the trip to NYC was to visit family, but Cody spent months plotting and planning the perfect surprise proposal.
Cody and Alex spent their first morning in NYC walking through the parks of Flushing Meadows, home of the US Open. Cody stopped in front of the iconic globe to talk to Alex about their relationship and their future together. In typical Alex fashion, she didn’t catch on to what Cody was trying to do, and she kept getting up to continue walking. Cody finally convinced her to sit down and relax. He then got down on one knee and asked Alex to spend the rest of their lives together with a beautiful Tiffany ring. Alex was too surprised to do anything but laugh, cry, and say things like “really?!” but she finally found her bearings and said, “of course!”
