I am SO thrilled to share this gorgeous wedding today, friends! And I’m gushing even more because these are two of my friends – so it was so meaningful being a part of their day!!
Lindsay and Stefan met in a church group in New York that I was a part of – and I’m pretty sure as soon as these two met they hit it off! And you’ll see why, both Stefan and Lindsay are just fun, down-to-earth people and full of joy! I was so excited to see when they were engaged in Fort Worth, TX, where Lindsay is from – and even more thrilled when they asked me to be their wedding photographer
These two chose to get married at West Hills Country Club, which was the perfect atmosphere for them, blending a classy elegance with a relaxed atmosphere! As soon as I arrived in Lindsay’s suite, I knew this was going to be a party, with all of her girls in matched robes and some of them had come all the way from Texas! I LOVED Lindsay’s style, from her gorgeous gown with tulle, to her sparkly Kate Spade sneakers (she was determined to be comfortable – you go girl!), to her bright florals surrounded gentle eucalyptus. Lindsay had some sweet moments with her sister and mom as she got dressed, and then this girl rocked out her portraits! Then it was time to go see her groom – and she was ready!
Stefan was waiting for her in a green field, and when he saw how gorgeous he looked he was beaming from ear to ear!! SO sweet!! Then, after they exchanged their tearful embraces, Stefan had to let out his humor and play a prank on Lindsay. We asked them to do their first look over again and this time, Stefan put in some buck teeth that Lindsay’s family had mailed all the groomsmen. She took it like a champ when she saw him and just laughed!! Then we photographed more beautiful portraits of these two, and then some fun moments with their entire bridal party! Then, we went on the golf course with just Stefan and Lindsay to the view from atop the course – and oh my what beautiful moments we captured of them!! And then took them amidst willow trees – so romantic!
They returned to West Hills just before their ceremony on the patio, performed by a minister of Lindsay’s from Texas. They had a beautiful and God-centered ceremony, and then they were pronounced husband and wife!! We took photos with their families, they enjoyed a lovely and delicious cocktail hour, and then they entered the reception ready to dance the night away!! I knew this was going to be some party! Lindsay’s dad, sister, and Stefan’s brother all gave speeches, and back to dancing it was! Before the end of the night, we took some beautiful photographs outside of Stefan and Lindsay by the waterfalls. And then, they got ALL their guests together for a sparkler exit! Which was so beautiful and fun! Then, they hopped in their jeep with “JUST MARRIED” banner on the back and away the newlyweds went!
I had the BEST day with these two and wish them every joy and blessing in their life together! I hope you enjoy their story!
