Austin’s sister Addy passed away 2 years ago today from Cystic Fibrosis. She told him that his future wife would be wearing a red bow. Sydney was wearing a red bow on her bathing suit when her + Austin met on the lake. Addy is still such a big part of their lives and story, so it was really cool how they incorporated her into their engagement photos.
The letters in the flatlay also represent the many months they spent apart from each other while Austin was in the OHP Academy. I literally could not imagine being away from my husband for that long. I just makes me think of all of the gratitude and respect that I have for these families that make sacrifices to protect and serve. I can’t wait to get these two married this year!! 😆
