We love the abundant use of colorful flowers, chalkboards, and other whimsical decor for today’s barn wedding at Genesee Valley. Austin and Dana made the most of their rainy day wedding and had (what looks like) a fabulous time!
Comments from the Bride: “Austin and I met at Ridgely Middle School in Lutherville, Maryland. We have known each other a long time. Austin was the new kid in our 7th grade class, and the rumor was that he was a surfer who moved to Maryland from California. I immediately fell in love.
“In one diary entry, I proclaimed, ‘I think I met the boy I am going to marry’ – I still have notebooks signed with Dana Hamby in different types of cursive script. Despite my not-so-discreet love for him, we remained friends throughout middle school and high school.
“Nearing the end of college, we reunited, rekindled our friendship and eventually started dating.
“Two years ago, Austin proposed in the most romantic way in my very own backyard – at a beautiful, secluded cove at the Loch Raven Reservoir. After having been together for nearly 10 years, we recently decided to move our lives to the wonderful city of Denver. The lifestyle is amazing, and we cannot wait to continue our path together among the fresh air, majestic mountains and tranquil spirit of Colorado.”
