Cydney and Hunter met at a 2016 New Year’s Eve party hosted by a mutual friend in beautiful Baytowne Wharf.
“Ironically, it was the last place either of us expected to be, but looking back on that night, we believe that fate brought us together.”
“After the party, Hunter messaged me on Instagram and our dating life began. However, that year I started Medical school at Florida State University and Hunter moved to Cape Coral for his job as a Sales Manager.”
“We felt like the odds were against us, living about six hours apart, but we kept finding ways to see each other and stayed very involved in each other’s’ lives.”
“We feel like we are soulmates and have built an incredible bond in a very short time.”
Cydney and Hunter got engaged on March 5, 2018 in Malibu, California where Hunter proposed on a private hike. “North Florida has such an important place in our hearts, so we decided to have our engagement photos taken in Baytowne where it all began, and Seaside because we both love the beach so much.”
“Our photographer Lauren did such an amazing job, and was able to capture the essence of our unique love.”
Cydney is currently in her second year of medical school and Hunter is working full-time while getting his MBA from the University of Florida. “Next year, fate will bring us even closer as I move to Sarasota for my last two years of medical school and Hunter transfers there for work. We are so excited to finally live together in a home we just bought!”
“We plan to get married in 2021, giving us plenty of time to plan alongside our very busy lives. We would love to have our wedding in Florida, and are currently searching for the perfect venue!”
