Austin and Laura’s wedding was ABSOLUTELY stunning, a little mix of classic meets whimsical!
This sweet couple is now living in GA but when she contacted me, they were stationed in Mississippi, right where I used to live, so we had plenty to talk about!! When we met Laura and Austin for the first time at their engagement session, they laughed the entire time! The moment I knew they were “ideal” clients, was when Laura mentioned she wished there would be a Chick-Fil-A sauce fountain at their wedding! 😀 That is my kind of person!!
When Austin proposed, he had planned to get down on one knee in a hot air balloon but the night before was called and told it was too windy. He came up with a heck of a back up plan! He told Laura they were going to the Sand Pearl, (their special spot) for brunch, then blind folded her and instead took her to a lake, walked her out on a dock that was set up with roses, candles and champagne. There he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him! Then they went to the Sand Pearl and then to his parents house where he had a planned a surprise engagement party with all of their family and friends!! Then, fast forward to their wedding day in January!
Their wedding day was a joy to be a part of! The venue they chose was one of our favorites, Saxon Manor in Brooksville! When we arrived, Laura was in the middle of opening 1 of several gifts that Austin had gotten her, and she was receiving them scavenger hunt style! It was special to see how all of her bridesmaids reacted to each one as well, I felt like I got to know a deeper part of their story.
Their details were beautiful, the florals were jaw dropping, their bridal party was a hoot and bridesmaids, so kind! The weather was PERFECT and they had their ceremony in a forest! Laura’s father married them, which was incredibly special. Their bridal portraits are some of my absolute favorites to date! The reception was a blast and the dancing was non-stop, 3 C’s made some amazing dinner and at the end of the night, they danced under the sparklers!
Laura and Austin, you had a dream wedding day and we couldn’t be more happy for you two!! We are blessed to have captured your day and can’t wait to see what this next chapter of life will bring you! Hope you enjoy a TON of our favorites! Love you guys!
A big thank you to all of their wonderful vendors that we got the pleasure of working with!!
