It’s not often I get to meet a bride’s family before the wedding day. So it was a refreshing surprise when I was preparing to meet Austin and Frank and she asked if it would be ok for her parents to come too. From the very first moment I met with this family – I was blown away by their warmth, the enormity of their love and their caring for everyone involved in this amazing day! As they spoke about all of the details they were planning for their intimate destination wedding and I couldn’t help but notice the friendship and ease in which they related with one another…by the end of the meeting I was madly in love with all of them and couldn’t wait to see them again during the big day!
When it finally arrived, I was so excited!! A sunny Florida sky overlooking the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Sarasota was the setting and together with their closest friends and family, Austin and Frank exchanged vows and celebrated into the night with laughter, cheers and so much love!! These two are so happy they want everyone around to share in that happiness with them, and let me tell you…this family can party! So much that even THIS happened!
Austin and Frank~ It was an honor and a JOY to be part of your beautiful day!! We wish that all of the happiness and love you felt this day stays with you always! We love you guys, your wonderful family (even Uncle Phil! 😉 )
