It was such a huge honor and such a blast to document Lindsay and Phil’s Richmond, Va., wedding. Their outdoor winter ceremony at The Carillon was breathtaking. The cool weather was made barely noticeable by cozy blankets, grilled cheese and tomato soup snacks, hot chocolate…oh, and all those warm and fuzzy feelings everyone had to get once they saw Lindsay and Phil lock eyes, as Lindsay made her way down the aisle, and both let the emotion of the moment visibly wash over them. With Lindsay being Lindsay of LK Events & Design, I knew every detail of the day would be beautiful and perfect. However, their day was really beyond that. It was a perfect representation of their sweet and fun-loving spirits, the awesome people they are surrounded and supported by, and their connection. MP (my husband and trusted second photographer here) and I love love love these two and we quickly realized at this wedding that we are not alone in the sentiment. And, as far as their connection goes, it’s a beautiful thing to see how Lindsay and Phil look at each other, how they exist together, natural and intertwined, and how good they seem to be at keeping smiles on each other’s faces and laughter in the air. Following are my favorite images from the day. And the quote above is for you Phil! Anyone who knows Phil, also knows how big of a Ted Nugent fan he is (see his impressive air guitar to “Stranglehold” in the photos below) and how hard I had to look to find an appropriate and publishable Ted Nugent quote for this blog post. So much love to you both and I wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and air guitar!
