Congratulations to Andrea and Austin on their beautiful wedding! After a romantic proposal on the beach, this couple tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony. We are ecstatic to share their love story and photos with you.
"I was introduced to Mia Grace with my sister when she started shopping for her wedding dress. The consultant she has was so nice and helpful and really worked in her budget and tried so many different dresses and made it such a personal experience I knew I wanted to go there for myself too." - Andrea
Austin and Andrea went to the same high school, but they didn't know each other until after Austin graduated. The couple met at a mutual friend's house when Andrea was going into her senior year of high school and Austin was going into his freshman year of college. It was meant to be!
Andrea and Austin went on a beach trip to Holden Beach, North Carolina with Austin’s family in October 2018. Austin and his family grew up going to this beach and it was always special to his family. Austin learned to walk at Holden Beach beach, was baptized there, and spent almost every summer there growing up. Andrea's sister got engaged just three weeks before the trip, so Andrea didn’t think there was any chance she was going to get engaged. Andrea and Austin went down to the beach for pictures. While taking pictures, Austin told Andrea he had so many memories at Holden Beach and wanted Andrea to have a memory of her own there. Of course, Andrea said YES!
Andrea and Austin's wedding had a rustic theme. They emphasized pink and white colors with beautiful greenery detail. Andrea wore Eddy K style 1269. The stunning A-line gown perfectly fit the rustic theme of the wedding. The beautiful lace appliques on the bodice of the dress cascade onto the tulle skirt. The illusion neckline emphasizes the gorgeous lace detail and complements the open back which includes intricate beading.
