I remember meeting Lindsey and Chris for the first time at the new Blue Dhalia in Westlake. Lindsey and I had communicated via email up until then, and we had plenty of time to get to know each other since she contacted me about 15 months in advance. You go, girl! We hung out, ate some kind of delicious thing on bread, and commented on the wall art. After a little while, I noticed Lindsey’s laugh. She had this delightful zest for life inside her that started bubbling up. (You can see her bridal photos here!) I could also tell right away that Chris completely adored her. He thought she was the bomb, like the coolest person he knew. And I noticed he was quick-witted, another huge plus in my book. After our hang-out, I knew good people had found me.
Their wedding was held at the Earle-Harrison House in Waco, a beautiful historic house built in the mid 19th century. Lindsey is very, very crafty, so not only did she make all the bouquets herself, but she designed and decorated a lot of the reception space too with the help of family and friends. I liked their guestbook alternative, which was a white canvas to hang in their new home filled with their guests’ messages! My favorite part of the ceremony was when Chris saw Lindsey. There is nothing that compares to witnessing a groom overwhelmed with emotion and joy when he sees his bride for the first time!
To honor all their travels together, they had a table with framed pictures of them at each location with a little label explaining the when and where – so creative! They also had candy and popcorn, a deadly combination for someone that can’t resist free junk food, and tons of neat personal touches. You just need to see the pictures! Their first dance was really sweet, because Lindsey is just ridiculously adorable when she’s happy and excited, the dance between her and her dad ended in an unexpected way (see the pictures!) and Chris and his mom’s dance was a tear jerker. They exited the venue with a flurry of sparklers and the rest is history! Thank you so much, Lindsey and Chris, for having me be a part of your day!
