I shared a little about Lindsay and Chase in this post when I blogged the photos from their Temple wedding in Washington D.C. but that was such a brief, quick photoshoot a couple days before their full wedding at Mount Ida Farm that I was sad when the sun set and I had to stop shooting them! After seeing Lindsay’s gorgeous dress and how natural she and Chase interacted, I couldn’t wait to be with them for a full day that following weekend. I showed up to Mount Ida that Saturday to shoot all the pretty details in the morning and Lindsay and her girls met me a little bit later after getting hair and makeup done! The day was non-stop from the beginning which made it go SO fast but every part of their wedding was so special to be a part of. Lindsay and Chase have been together for a LONG time and they have been counting down the days to get to celebrate this union with all their favorite people.
I honestly can’t even begin to express how kind, easy-going, and generous these two are!! Not only did they put up with the crazy wind and really cold temps without complaining but I heard story after story of how they both love to serve others, which solidified what I saw in them from the minute I met them! It was very clear that they have a love for people and I know that will translate so well into their marriage since they already have the gift of making others feel loved and cared for.
I want to let Chase share his version of their love story since he will do a better job than me but before I do — Lindsay and Chase, I am so grateful I got to be your wedding photographer!!! Thanks for inviting me into this important day and trusting me with everything! I’m excited for you to see my favorites from your wedding below!! 🙂
Their love story as told by Chase:
I don’t know if there was an actual moment when my path crossed Lindsay’s. She has been been all I ever wanted since before she was stealing my goldfish in our church nursery. As we grew up she became more and more apart of my life and gradually I was able to convince her I was as dashing as Ron Weasley. At 13, feigning to be a brave man, I kissed her in the Liberty Middle School bus lot and then fled for my life. At 16, the time had come. I asked her to be my girlfriend and we went Facebook official to seal the deal on a relationship that realistically in our hearts had begun years before. What ensued was years of smiles, endless laughs, dates, competitive battles, lots of distance, and a reunion fit for a Nicholas Sparks love story. Finally, on July 29th I asked her to stop the madness and be my forever.
