Lindsi recently let me in on how she and Jason became an item – through a gathering at a BBQ thrown by Kari, a mutual friend. Lindsi remembered, “Jason and I hit it off right away talking with each other throughout the night until it was time to go to work the next morning. The next day I got his number from Kari, but chickened out on calling him. And according to Jason he got my number from Kari but was waiting a few days to call. Well a few days passed and I decided to hunt him down on Myspace… Yes, Myspace. From that point on we started talking had our first date at Willies Diner.” Lindsi went on to describe a future date in which the couple had planned to go hiking in some rather wet weather. Jason is very outdoorsy, and Lindsi believes that it helped seal the deal that she never complained about being cold and wet during their hike. On the other hand, the two enjoyed getting to know each other a little better while taking in the nature around them. Three years later, Jason proposed to Lindsi on the same hiking trail. This time, though, the weather was gorgeous and Jason came armed with a surprise picnic and wine. And in Lindsi’s opinion, it was absolutely perfect.
Jason and Lindsi opted to see each other before the ceremony in order to help the wedding day schedule run a little more smoothly. Their wedding ceremony ran close to sundown, so we completed all the bridal party pictures before the ceremony began.
In love with the reception details. I have to say that even as a wedding photographer who is used to seeing a lot of detail, I was overwhelmed with the overall amount throughout the day. And the fact that my bride didn’t have to do most of it… Priceless!
A very, very special thank you to Katherine of Katherine Vess Photography for being my right hand gal for this shindig. I credit her for so much – keeping me calm when I got overwhelmed with all the beautiful details, fishing for hair flowers behind heavy furniture, capturing awesome detail shots, and much, much more. THANK YOU!!!
