These two infused so much of their personalities into their wedding day and I just love it! From Texas sized traditions to the tiniest preppy detail, Vitalic Photo found every chance to make Rebecca and Austin shine on their big day.

Austin and Rebecca go all the way back to the sixth grade. They remained close friends throughout high school and college, despite attending different schools, Baylor University and Auburn University. After graduation, Austin's career led him to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida for a job with the PGA Tour and Rebecca headed to Dallas. Conveniently enough, Austin's parents also moved to Dallas and it was there that their relationship began to bloom.

Austin would visit during holidays and football season and the two would get together for dinner or drinks to catch up. Almost two years went by until finally Rebecca vacationed to Ponte Vedra Beach and a romantic road trip to a George Strait concert was just the ticket they needed. Six months later, she left Texas and moved to Florida! Another few months went by and Austin bought a ring, but kept it with his family until the right moment.

From Rebecca: July 4th, 2013 Austin proposed in Austin, Texas at a good family friends lake house. Everything about the day was normal to me, but everyone else knew what I didn't: that he would be proposing that evening after the fireworks. After dinner that day we took the boat out to go see fireworks on Lake Austin. Little did I know that all of my family had driven in and were waiting back at the house for us to celebrate. He proposed on top of the boat deck when we got back from the firework show. He had this planned for over nine months and I had no idea.

Choosing to have a destination wedding in Florida rather than Texas was simple. Rebecca's grandparents were Vero Beach snowbirds while she was growing up and some of her favorite memories were golfing with them at Bent Pine Golf Club. Combine that fondness with her and Austin's mutual love for the game and it was a preppy perfect match.

There were ten bridesmaids and groomsmen, three ushers and six house party girls (a Texas tradition). Eleven of them had graduated from their high school! That's a grand total of thirty-two folks in the wedding party, including the newlyweds. Everything is bigger from Texas!

“We are both preppy individuals, so we knew we wanted our wedding to reflect us. Austin was great and really wanted me to be happy with everything we chose.”

Navy and pink were our colors and I absolutely knew peonies and hydrangeas would be the flowers. My mom was a lifesaver and stayed in Vero to help plan. My best friend's dad married us at sunset and we could not have asked for a prettier day. All the napkins on the table were a pink seersucker fabric shaped into a bow with hand strung pearls tied around the center for favors that my Grandmother had hand strung. Each groomsmen's boutonniere had a golf tee and we used navy striped ribbon for all the details. Instead of groom's cake we had milk and cookies and our finale was with sparklers and a convertible car getaway.

Don't you just love all the teeny tiny golf details? So much fun. Congratulations to you both!
