Lindy and I hit it off from the first time we met – it was early April of 2013 that we had our consult in Gallery Espresso (with my 6 week old baby in tow) while Geoff and I were in town. I knew I liked her within minutes of being with her. She is likely one of the most thoughtful and genuine people I have met.
I couldn’t wait to meet Jason, which finally happened in October 2013 in Durham, NC after the Making Things Happen Conference that both Lindy and I attended. We met for a couple of sandwiches on our way out of town….Jason managed to pay for my bill without my slightest knowledge. These two…I tell ya. :)
Shortly after driving to Charlotte from Savannah for their engagement session, Lindy and Jason sent Geoff and I our FAVORITE brownies from Gallery in the mail. And I can’t even tell you how many encouraging text messages I have from Lindy. I have been blessed from knowing this couple and have so enjoyed getting to form a friendship with Lindy and Jason through the past year….I only wish we lived in the same city so we could hang out regularly.

The first time Lindy’s dad saw her in her wedding dress was such a sweet moment. After their initial embrace, he pulled away from her with tears in his eye and just looked at her. I can’t even begin to imagine what it is like as a parent to be in that surreal moment.
Something that really touched me personally was when they said their vows. If you recall, Geoff and I made these little books for Lindy and Jason for their engagement session. Prior to their session we had asked them separately to email us 10 things they loved about the other person. We printed out those 10 things, pasted them into the books and then gave them for them to read to each other during the engagement session. I knew they had enjoyed it, but when she told me that they were using the books to record and recite their vows for wedding day…well, heck. That is just about the sweetest thing.
Not sure if there are many things better in life than a multi-colored confetti recessional. Right?
Have you heard of the Southern tradition to “bury the bourbon” to keep the rain away on wedding day? Tradition calls that a bride and groom bury a bottle of bourbon one month before the wedding day at the site of the ceremony. Lucky us…it worked! Wedding day weather was perfection.
It was only appropriate that we dig it up before we set off to the reception.
Jason’s wedding gift to Lindy was a hot air balloon ride on their honeymoon. Lindy’s wedding gift to Jason? ICE CREAM. The BEST ice cream. She surprised him with a cart during cocktail hour from local ice cream hot spot Leopold’s. FOR. THE. WIN.
Lindy and her dad (any many friends and family) were the one’s behind the crafting, construction and installation of this paper flower ceiling that hung above at the reception site. It was unlike anything I’ve seen….seriously unique and very fitting with their colorful day.
There were so many special touches throughout the day. This one, was particularly sweet (pun fully intended). A plethora of homemade baked goods…complete with “Jason’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies”, “Grandma K’s Apple Pie” and “Grandma Peters’ Christmas Cookies”.
Lindy and Jason – y’all are the best. A million times thank you for giving us the opportunity to photograph your wedding day. Love y’all!
