Ethan and I met in high school and started dating after his senior year in South Burlington, Vermont. We did long distance through college and eventually moved to St Petersburg, FL together where we got engaged at our favorite beach spot, Fort De Soto, in 2019. Whitney’s Mom visited St Petersburg later in 2019 when we made our way to Tampa and found the perfect dress at The White Magnolia.
When we had to postpone our May 2020 wedding, we decided to elope on the beach in the same spot as our engagement! We celebrated our reception with friends and family in 2021 and I was thankfully able to wear my Paloma Blanca gown after all!
