It was a gorgeous, sunny day for the wedding of Brittany and Austin. We met on Fripp Island for getting ready photos then a fist look. We then went to Hunting Island. Afterwards, the couple had their ceremony on the beach followed by an intimate dinner with guests, cake cutting and a sparkler send off. The entire Fripp lsland area is natural, scenic, and was a perfect setting for this couple’s sunset wedding. We has such a great time getting to know Brittany & Austin and wish them many happy years together!
Austin and I are from Ohio and we met after college through a mutual friend. We maintained a long distance relationship for 4 years, then eventually found ourselves in the same city. We enjoy camping, boating, and being active! Austin proposed at one of our favorite camping/hiking spots just southeast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We decided to do a destination wedding at Fripp Island because Austin had camped on Hunting Island the previous year and thought it would be a great location for a small intimate wedding.
There were many small and sentimental touches that made our day amazing: We had our minister, Dr. Lentz, travel to Fripp Island from Cleveland to perform the ceremony. Austin’s sister gave us a beautiful locket, a handkerchief with part of his mother’s wedding dress sewn in, and his mother’s garter. We also lit a candle in memory of her during the ceremony. My sisters created t-shirts for our guests. The front of the shirt says LOVE with an outline of Ohio representing the letter V. The back of the shirts have our names and the wedding date and location.
