Welcome to Style From Victoria! After following countless blogs and being glued to Instagram for so long, I decided that it was finally time for me to create a more personal outlet to express myself and interact with all of you. I thought it would be fitting for my first post to explain what I’ve been up to for the past few months and my background. I have lived in Kentucky my entire life and recently graduated from Georgetown College. While I work in the field of behavioral health now, I have always known that my style is a huge part of who I am and what I love to do. Aside from graduating in May, I also married my best friend. Andrew and I met at 14 and 15 years old (crazy, I know) and have been together ever since. After waiting so many years to finally tie the knot, we decided that we’d get married on May 18 which was just 4 days after we’d both graduate from GC. As you might expect, my year has been crazy with wedding planning, working and finishing up school at the same time. I ultimately decided that a destination wedding would be easier and so much more fun for us and our families. We settled upon the Harbour Town Lighthouse in beautiful Hilton Head, South Carolina as our venue. The day after our college graduation, we were making the 10 hour voyage to HHI for the wedding of our dreams. About two hours into the trip, the backseat of my car had spontaneously caught on fire due to poor road conditions (a rock flying into my exhaust). There we were… on the side of an interstate in Tennessee… watching the smoke roll out of our car while Andrew clutched onto my wedding dress and I to all of our belongings that I managed to salvage. It was a Sunday so it took hours to find a rental car that was open and would rent to drivers under 25. We finally managed to do so and continued to HHI with our smoke damaged clothing and me as an emotional wreck. Upon arrival, we made a special trip to Bath & Body Works (my fave) for tons of fragrance mists to improve the smell of our clothes and luggage. Miraculously, my wedding dress was the only item that made it out odor free. Throughout the first few hours that we were in South Carolina, I was constantly checking the weather forecast and to my dismay, a week of rain seemed to be heading our way. At this point, I was getting very discouraged but still trying to make the best of the happiest time of our lives. We stayed at the beautiful Sonesta Resort (which I would highly recommend) and their staff continuously encouraged me to not worry about the rain as well as a few kind couples we had met in the hot tub. In the end, we saw no rain on our wedding day and our sunset ceremony was everything I had ever hoped for. We have been married for a little over two months now and we certainly have a great story to tell. (Haha) I thought I’d share some of my favorite shots from our time at Hilton Head.
