Airlie Center in Warrenton, Virginia holds a special place in my heart. It’s the beautiful place where I worked for a year and a half before taking my business full-time.
Tim and Lindsay hold a special place in my heart. because they are two of the biggest sweethearts you’ll ever meet. (Just don’t tell Tim I said so. ;) Pair their big hearts with their incredible love for one another, toss in a pinch of Lindsay’s love for details, and mix it all together in a place as gorgeous as Airlie, and you’ve got yourself a wedding photographer’s dream day.
Aside from the awesome fact that they ended the day as husband and wife, my favorite part of Lindsay and Tim’s day was how it was such a reflection of who they are and what they value. Every single detail fit in perfectly with Lindsay’s love of country vintage—right down to her gorgeous vintage-inspired ring! Lace, cowboy boots, chalkboards, mason jars… every time I see these things from now on I’ll immediately be reminded of Tim and Lindsay. There was meaning in every decision for them, right down to the location that they decided to use for their day. Lindsay and Tim’s very first date was spent night fishing in the country. Tim proposed to Lindsay while they were fishing on a lake. And Lindsay and Tim promised to love each other for the rest of their lives in the country, just a few yards away from a pond. (Maybe not a lake, but you get the point!) These two know who they are, which is how I know their love is the lifetime brand of love.
Airlie has been special to me for a while, but now it’s even more meaningful to me. Lindsay and Tim, thank you so much for inviting me back to that gorgeous place to help celebrate your day with you. I was honored to be the one to document your first day as husband and wife! Enjoy a few of my favorites from your day and I hope you’re having a blast in the Dominican Republic!
Introducing: Mr. and Mrs. Michael
How about Lindsay’s SHOES!? I love a little something blue…
Lindsay found so many of her details on Etsy, including this stunning necklace…
I truly couldn’t get enough of these rings!
While the girls primped for the day, the guys got in a few rounds of pool.
And chess, of course.
I always love a good groom portrait, but something about this one is just so sweet.
And then my lace-loving heart fluttered away.
So maybe I went a litttle ring crazy. Do you blame me?
Oh, Mrs. Michael. You. Are. Beautiful.
The cutest ring bearers around!
So thankful these girls were in boots and were so willing to trek through the field for me!
Reason #478 why I love working with my second shooters, while I’m grabbing group shots, they’re seeing this! Thanks, Hope!
Had to show off the socks!
Tim! You’re melting my heart!
The gorgeous locations at Airlie never end…
Personalized mason jar mugs as escort cards? Pure genius.
Tim’s mom is an incredibly talented cake designer! She made this beauty to perfectly complement the day.
Maybe one of the sweetest first dances ever.
And maybe one of the funniest toasts.
The FBI even got involved :)
