Austin and Kim met in November of 2013 when they were visiting mutual friends at Texas Tech. Kim had gone up to see one of her best friends, and Austin tagged along with his then roommate that was visiting his girlfriend. Austin’s roommates girlfriend and Kim’s best friends’ dorm rooms were right next to each other. They were friends so they all went out together that weekend. Kim and Austin’s connection was instant! I remember Kim telling me that she knew he was someone very special from the moment she met him.
At the time, Austin lived in Fort Worth and Kim lived in College Station. After a few months of texts, phone calls and lots of FaceTime calls, Austin finally made a trip to go see Kim. This was the beginning of their love story. Two years later Kim got accepted into nursing school in San Antonio, her hometown, and they continued their long distance relationship for 5 years! The countless hours of driving and too much money spent on gas was all worth it for them.
After Kim graduated in May of 2018, they both took a trip to Disney World with some friends. On the second day of the trip, they woke up early in hopes to beat the crowds at Magic Kingdom. Upon entering the park, Kim’s friend insisted on photos in front of the castle before the crowds began. Kim and her friend posed facing the castle with their backs to the camera. When she turned around Austin was down on one knee ready to pop the question. With people cheering around them, Cinderella’s castle in the background, and tears rolling down Kim’s face she said “Yes!!” to the love of her life. She explains it as the most magical moment of her life.
Since then they have been planning their wedding and let me tell you, it is going to be grand! The ceremony and reception will take place at The White Sparrow in Quinlan, TX with all of their closest friends and family. As they were looking at venues, the elegant and classy all white barn grabbed their attention and they knew that was the one! I know it is going to be a magical day for my sweet couple and I can’t wait to see all of the beauty unfold.
