Wow, it’s been entirely way too long since we’ve blogged anything. It didn’t help that we went on 3 week trip abroad and then jumped into full-on wedding season + shooting a ton of engagement sessions. But today’s the day! Today we are officially blogging again. 😉
Lyndon & Austin are so great together. We’ve been close friends with Lyndon for years and we’ve known Austin & his brothers since college. Although we all attended the University of Alabama at the same time, Lyndon & Austin never really formally met. They knew of each other and may have been introduced once in passing, but that was it. After college graduation, Lyndon moved to Budapest and spent time working and backpacking across Europe. When she returned to the states, she ended up in New York for about a year. Austin, happened to be living in New York, working for Esquire and becoming a certified barber (maybe you’ve heard of his wildly successful barber shop, Greasy Hands, in Florence, AL) during that time as well. He vaguely remembered Lyndon from Alabama, and reached out to see if she’d want to meet up. Lyndon responded that she would love to, but after being in New York for a year, she’d just recently made the move to San Francisco. I mean, what are the odds people!
Months went by and Austin continued to grow more and more interested in Lyndon from afar. He decided it was time he do something about it. Thankfully, one of his best friends had been dating Lyndon’s sister for quite some time, so he planned a trip to San Francisco to visit his friend, while secretly scheming a way to meet up with Lyndon. So, a dinner party was planned. Austin, his best friend, Lyndon’s sister, Lyndon + a few other friends met up at a restaurant. To everyone else at the table that night, Lyndon & Austin were in their own world. They were falling in love.
Shortly after Austin’s quick trip to California, they began a long distance relationship. In a matter of months, Lyndon was making the move back to Alabama to live closer to Austin. Things were getting real and marriage was on the horizon. Austin’s proposal fittingly went down during a weekend trip in New York – the place where they both lived, but never knew each other. They will say “I do” this coming Sunday, and we couldn’t be happier that these two friends of ours found each other.
You couldn’t wipe the smiles off their faces even if you tried…
