He said, “I have visions in my life and she has visions in her life. We just kinda merged our visions.” It’s a lot of fun to support her in this stage of her life and help her realize her dreams and fulfill her calling. It’s amazing to see how supportive she has been of me over the long-term. 

Sydney said that the couple will wait until the end of the track and fields season before they can go on their honeymoon.

Elle added that “We are still trying to figure out where and what we want, but it’s not something we have on the calendar.” 

Two weeks before their big day, Sydney and Andre both posted on Instagram a series of gorgeous engagement photos that featured the couple walking through Greystone Mansion and Gardens in Beverly Hills, Calif.

You challenge me every day to learn. “Comfortable, or unpleasant, it’s the best way for me to grow,” Sydney wrote in her caption. “Can’t WAIT to be there at the altar.” 

In his own post, Andre shared his own excitement for their then-upcoming nuptials.

He wrote, “Simply put Andre knowing Sydney after all is said and done” I can’t wait for you to continue growing in my love. Shmoop, I will meet you at the altar!
