Luke and Kelsey

Engagement Story

Luke proposed to Kelsey while they were vacationing in Sydney, Australia. Kelsey forced Luke to go on a hike of the coast from Bondi to Coogee, a 12 km (7.4 m) journey. A celebratory ice cream cone from Macca's capped the half way point and kicked off the return trip. Luke popped the question at a scenic overlook where Kelsey said YES! This is a good thing because Kelsey may not have returned if she had said no. The newly engaged couple celebrated the evening with their hosts, Dave and Johnnie (Liz), at the Sydney Opera House bar and even enjoyed a fireworks display.
