Lindsey & Jeff ~ Marry Me, again and again and again!

If your job is a wedding photographer, after a few years, you don’t have a lot of “firsts” at weddings. Of course every single couple is unique and each day is very special, but after a while, you have seen pretty much every kind of proposal, wedding favor, timeline, dress, and meal.

But this wedding was full of firsts for me! I was blown away by the intricacy of it all. The first unique point was when they told me about their proposal. Jeff is an engineer and he built a special “balloon trap” above Lindsey’s door. She came home from work one day and 100 balloons fell down from her ceiling. Once she stopped laughing and dug herself out, she saw, written in Christmas lights, “Will you?” and then Jeff holding a mirror that said “Marry Me.” They had dated long-distance and always left notes on the mirrors for one another. I couldn’t believe how sweet it was!

The second “first” for me was the fact that there were two ceremonies in two days. On Friday night, Lindsey and Jeff had a super intimate ceremony with just immediate family. It was such a sweet event to be a part of because every person in the room had invested so much time into them as individuals and as a couple. She wore a beautiful and simple white, tea-length dress and they exchanged vows with a priest in a gorgeous church.

Their wedding was the gift that kept giving because we all got back together the next day for the bigger party! It was still a small group, which kept ceremony #2 intimate and special, but they knew how to have a good time once the reception started. Guests sat on straw bails and the aisle was lined with sunflowers. Lindsey’s favorite part of the day was walking down that aisle and seeing all their friends and family snuggled up and then watching Jeff get emotional as she got closer.

Every detail at the wedding was made by hand, Lindsey’s hand to be exact. She made the cake herself, along with homemade pickles as a favor for guests. She made lawn games and a family tree. She even recruited Jeff and they built their own dance floor. My mouth was open in amazement as I walked through the ranch and saw all the little details.

With so much love and attention to detail at their wedding, it was obvious how important the day was to both of them. And I think this is just a reflection of their love for each other. It was obvious to see their connection and excitement for what was to come and I feel lucky to have been a part of it. Thank you, Lindsey and Jeff, for having me! This wedding reminded me that even I can be surprised by my job and fall in love with it again!
