Do you know that feeling you get when you’re on the verge of tears . . . that lump in the throat, tingly eyes, heart-pounding sensation? I feel like I was in that state from the beginning to the end of Will and Lindsay’s beautiful wedding day. Words really cannot express what a moving day it was. From how tenderly they love one another to the way they genuinely value family, everything was so right and lovely.
A few interesting facts about the day:
– Lindsay has an identical twin sister, Ashley. These two probably cried a river together over the course of the day, which did not help my aforementioned condition. They are the best of friends and observing their relationship is a gift.
– Though it was the dead of winter, it was about 80 degrees outside. Thank you, mother Texas.
– I paid very close attention throughout the day and I don’t think Will ever took his eyes off of Lindsay. It was the sweetest thing. He is the best guy.
– Linds and Will’s reception was held at The Headliner’s Club in downtown Austin and I’m pretty sure that if I wasn’t married to Stan, I would marry this venue. 🙂 It is so much fun to shoot in – you’ll see why!
– Stan and I were truly inspired by shooting this wedding. It was the perfect first wedding of the year . . . and if it’s any indication of things to come this year, we will be tremendously fortunate.
Let me share some favorite pictures from their day. 🙂
Can you tell that Linds was excited about marrying Will? Such a sweetheart!
This was where I got pretty choked up. Will’s mom was handing Lindsay her bouquet, but before she would let go, she looked Lindsay in the eyes and told her that she was the most beautiful bride she had ever seen. Oh, was a gift it is to witness these moments!
I wish you knew Will and could see how huge his heart is . . . he’s wonderful!
Lindsay and Will opted to see one another before their ceremony. This was a huge decision for them because they had always thought they would do the more traditional first sight with her walking down the isle, but once they realized that it would be dark after their ceremony and the time for great portraits would be more limited if they waited to see one another, they made the decision to have their special moment beforehand. After their “first sight” moment they told us about a hundred times how thankful they were that they made that decision and how much better it made the whole day. Yay!
LOVE this shot that Stan got of Linds and her daddy waiting to walk in.
Ceremony held at the beautiful St. David’s Episcopal Church. Special thanks to Roxanne for being such a super sweet & wonderful church-coordinator-lady! 🙂
Party time! On to the reception!
I’m not sure what this lady was telling them as they were announced into the reception, but – Will and Linds – if I were you, I’d listen to her! 🙂
I loved seeing Lindsay’s family watching their first dance. They’re just beautiful people. (Hi Karen – love ya!)
Lindsay and her dad did a very sweet father-daughter dance . . . and then later brought the house down with their more funky moves! So cute!
Some toasts – my favorite!
Will – you are hilarious!
Rajal and Ash – just FYI – We got about a million ridiculously hilarious pictures of you dancing – you’re too good! ; )
W&L – Saying “thank you” for having us there to capture your wedding day just doesn’t seem to suffice. It was a joy, a gift, and a truly great day. Lots of love, Stacy
