Welcome

Welcome to our wedding site! We hope using this page will help with your travel arrangements as well as your accommodations for our upcoming wedding. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. We understand it is not the most convenient location to get to but we promise it will be special and thank you for taking the time to celebrate with us. Be sure to check back for updates throughout our engagement.

Before we had each other, we had you all. We would not be where we are today without you all. So thank you for impacting our lives in so many ways. A wedding is about more than celebrating the happy couple. It’s also a celebration of all those that have played such an important role in our lives over the years.

We’re so excited to start our life together knowing we have all of your love and support. We could not be more grateful to the Hammonds, the Haywards and the Kellers for their generous contributions to make this time in our lives all the more special. We are truly touched by your thoughtfulness.

We would also like to thank our families for all their love and support. Since the beginning, our parents have consistently been our biggest fans and greatest role models. Their voices will remain with us as we try to emulate a marriage as strong as theirs. We couldn’t be more excited to have our families become one this coming Columbus Day Weekend.

Loring and Austin

Our Story

Everyone knows the clichéd story about “the summer that changed their lives,” but for us that actually happened. It was the summer of 2010 and we were young enough to not take life too seriously. We lived every moment of that summer to the fullest and knew we found something special and unique. After three months of interning together at Weber Shandwick – ‘the summer lovin’ did, in fact, happen that fast. And of course, we wanted it to last.

Austin headed back to school at Texas Tech (Guns Up!) while Loring continued at SMU. The distance was a mere inconvenience for us. Loring proved she could survive the West Texas dust storms and wasn’t scared off by Austin’s fraternity brothers. Austin quickly learned that Delaware is the “first state” and Caitlin is our “Kate Spade.” After numerous quick flights to Lubbock and a plethora of speeding tickets acquired across the gorgeous plains of Texas, Austin graduated and moved to Dallas.

It had been almost four-years of dating when Austin proposed on the beach in Los Cabos. Loring had planned a Valentine’s Day trip for some of their closest friends, but little did she know Austin had a plan of his own. After officially asking for her hand over Christmas, he knew the perfect cove to ask Loring to spend the rest of their lives together. Needless to say, the entire group was overjoyed and ‘fiesta-ed’ all weekend!

When we say “I do,” we will have been together for more than five years. We’re excited for you to join us on our magical day of love and friends by the bay. We’ll see you on October 10th!

St. Michael’s is popular destination for boaters and weekend visitors alike. Walk on red brick sidewalks past Victorian homes and boutique shops of the historic district, or head down to the pier in search of famously fresh caught oysters and crabs.
