Brant Beach Yacht Club | Long Beach Island | NJ Wedding Photographer
Kayla & Austin have known each other since they were about 10 years old. They grew up in New Jersey competing in sailing competitions against each other. After high school, they both went to rivalry military academies, Austin to the US Merchant Marine Academy and Kayla to the US Coast Guard Academy. While there, they frequently talked to each other and continued to sail against each other. They started dating after our Junior year and after graduation moved together to Cape May, NJ where Kayla is stationed on a Coast Guard cutter. Austin proposed to Kayla on a trip to Italy in the beautiful seaside town of Manarola on her birthday.
The ceremony took place on the deck of the Brant Beach Yacht Club on Long Beach Island.
Brant Beach Yacht Club is one of my favorite wedding venues on LBI. Kayla and Austin are both sailors, so naturally they had a nautical theme.
