Carly and Nick’s Love Story radiates at South Congress Hotel

Carly and Nick’s love story began during their freshman year at A&M University. Their paths crossed and ignited a connection that would endure. After college, they were in long distance for a year and a half and then both decided to live in Austin together. They also have a wonderful addition to the family: a pup named Winston, who is a wheaten terrier!

Carly figured Nick was going to propose while on vacation because they both love traveling. However, June of 2021, they went to their favorite beach town, Rosemary Beach in FL for a vacation with Nick’s dad, stepmom, and little sisters. Carly had no clue that Nick was going to propose on that trip so she was completely taken off-guard! They had this family “Christmas card photoshoot” on the beach. When the two of them went away to walk by themselves, Nick proposed and had the photographer take the perfect pictures! It’s definitely a genius plan. Well done, Nick.

Then, they had a beautiful sunset picnic on the beach. The two of them celebrated with drinks and dinner downtown! Talk about the best day ever.
