For the love of outdoors and fishing, Austin popped the big will-you-marry-me engraved on a fishing rod to which Michelle said yes in an instant. And for the Michelle’s love of girly- girl stuff, their wedding was jam- packed with hues of pink and glitters.So, they incorporated their fads together which sprang to a country outdoor wedding in a big estate in the woods. They even had a DIY fish Mr and Mrs. seat hangers and seasoning party favors that looked incredibly creative and shrewd! Gladly, both fished with their hearts and caught the best fish in the sea. Congratulations, Michelle and Austin!
The Album Story
Michelle and Austin are high school sweethearts that have a very special yet powerful love. Growing up and growing more in love together has been a dream come true for the bride. Both being raised in the country, they share a love for the outdoors as well. Austin and his dad are both hobbyists in fishing and making fishing rods, which Michelle grew to love being on the water and fishing as well, it was one of the many things they did together. When Austin decided to propose he made Michelle her own special fishing rod that read ‘will you marry me?” which was featured in their engagement images and if made it to their wedding day as well.
Being that they love to fish they wanted to include that in their wedding day decor. Michelle is what I would describe as an easy going always happy type of girl. She loves everything pink and glittery and definitely wanted to blend the two styles for their perfect wedding. Michelle also works for Victoria Secret so she has an even more love for their PINK too. Choosing Bailey Springs as a venue was exactly what Michelle had envisioned for her wedding, a big estate back in the woods so it had that touch of country and elegance.

Pink, pink, pink! Michelle is a girly girl and wanted to showcase her love of pink and bling. In doing do she chose a perfect blend of different shades of pink in bridesmaids dresses.

Highlights From the Ceremony and the Reception
The bride and groom definitely wanted everyone to be laid back and have fun at their wedding and reception. It included fishing, corn hole, and an open bar where the groom asked everyone to take a shot in memory of his grandfather.
