She sat there, relaxed—watching her beloved Michigan Wolverines football and sipping a mimosa—knowing that in just a few hours her father would be escorting her down the aisle to the man of her dreams. Everything was taken care of, the details done and the timeline as well mapped out as it could possibly be. Now all that was left for Lindsay to do was slip into her beautiful Badgley Mischka’s, don her gorgeous blush Monique Lhuiller gown, shed a few tears of happiness while opening Nick’s wedding day gifts, check the Michigan score one last time, and go say I do to forever.
He stood there, holding their beloved cat, Nelson, ready—but for the lint-rolling session he’d need in a moment—to see the girl he loved walking towards him looking as radiantly beautiful as ever. Nick had created a photo album for Lindsay (and she was looking at it right now, shedding a few tears of happiness) titled The Story of Us, and today they got to write the next chapter together with their best friends and sweetest family, as they said I do to forever.
I couldn’t possibly write about all of the details of this incredibly beautiful day without authoring a book, so I’ll let the photos tell the story of a perfectly monumental portrait backdrop, Nelson the cat’s bowtie and a reception that’ll make you feel like you’re floating inside of a champagne bottle. Here’s what I can say: Lindsay and Nick, I know just how much hard work and planning and anticipation had been stored up for this day, and it was such a wonderful joy to get to see you two lovebirds revel in your planning, enjoying every moment of the love, the merriment and the beauty that filled your celebration. Thanks for inviting me to witness and document the real love that you’ve found in each other. It’s true and it’s beautiful, and I hope that these images will open the flood gates and let all of the joy of that perfect September day come flowing right back to you!
