Amy & Austin
Celebrating Amy Barker and Austin Richards
July 17, 2011
These proud Aggies met through friends after graduation at an Aggie wedding. Austin’s romantic engagement included dinner, and when the time was right he got down on one knee. Then, the planning commenced. Amy chose a rustic chic décor, and her impeccable attention to detail brought all of the elements together.
A year and a half later – she knocked the socks off family and friends as she walked down the aisle in a Kenneth Pool gown with just the right amount of bling.
“It was very important to me that my dad’s memory and presence be very apparent in our special day as if he were there with us. My dad was my best friend and the only thing missing from our wedding was him,” says Amy. She carried his picture and tied his Aggie ring to her bouquet. “It was such a comfort to me. Our wedding was truly our dream wedding and one of the best days of our lives,” she says. – LMV
