This was the first time we have shot at The Barn at Shady Lane and we were so excited to finally get a chance to see it in action! It was everything and more we had been hearing about! We could not have asked for a better couple to hang out with for the day. We so enjoyed celebrating Lindsay and Chris’s love for one another! This could is one of the most chill and down to earth couple we have ever met and that makes for a relaxed and fun wedding day!
We started by grabbing details of Lindsay and her girls getting ready along with all her bridal detail. The coordinator for Lindsay’s day was Courtney Bell of La Belle Vie and not only was she one of the best coordinators we have worked with (seriously she did an excellent job making sure the day moved at a steady pace) she also designed the calligraphy on the Invitation seen below. OF COURSE Lindsay addressed it to the couple from the notebook. We love this precious detail.
Lindsay and Chris exchanged gifts and letters and we captured some truly sweet images of Lindsay reading what Chris sent to her. I have no doubt that these letters will be treasured through the years by the two of them.
We are kind of in love with the group of friends that Lindsay and Chris chose as their bridal party. We just thought they were fun as a whole group but they remained hilarious, up beat and beautiful even when we separated the girls from they guys. They knew all the right things to do and kept us laughing.
The entire day we battled the wind and sun but that did not stop Lindsay and Chris from creating GORGEOUS photos. Some of these took our breath away even before editing. You can just see how much they love each other by the way they look at one another. Chris’s face lights up when he lays his eyes on the beautiful Lindsay.
We so enjoyed this day and can’t stop looking at the photos. We hope you enjoy this preview of their wedding day.
Courtney + Michael xoxo
