Lindsey and Timothy are two of the kindest people I've ever met and I'm SO serious when I say that. They cared more about the well-being of every single guest at their wedding more than themselves and you could see that with every step they took. I actually met the Bruch's back in 2015 at another wedding, Lindsey's sister - Rachel! Tim and Lindsey ended up meeting each other on an online dating website and have been inseparable ever since. I love how exciting they are - they love hiking and traveling together which is such a wonderful way to spend time together. They even went skydiving for her birthday! They're so young and have already gotten to travel so much together - all the way across the United States, the Caribbean, AND Europe! Oh, and they have the cutest pup ever - Lacey!! SO adorable!!
The proposal was so heartwarming to hear about - Tim had planned it all and he proposed to Lindsey at her grandparents dock on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland! She has so many memories from this beautiful spot and it meant the world to her that the proposal happened there! Both families were in on the plan and were there when Lindsey thought she was just going to visit her grandparents. Her sister asked if she could take pictures of her outside on the dock and there popped out Tim with a ring! How cute is that?!
I arrived at the hotel in the morning to find all of the girls in matching robes and jamming out to the latest hits on the radio while they all finished up their hair and makeup. Which by the way, looked absolutely PHENOMENAL! I photographed Lindsey's thoughtful details - from her modern Badgley Mischka shoes (OBSESSED) to her heirloom wedding dress that was altered from her grandmother's wedding gown. Plus, can we talk about her gorgeous wedding colors and theme?! LOVE the deep reds and purples throughout the day!
We traveled over to Bowling Green Country Club and we finished taking portraits of the groomsmen before the ceremony started. They were having a blast and were joking around about the boutonnieres for a good 15 minutes, but it was seriously so funny!! As the ceremony started and Tim waited for his gorgeous bride to walk up the aisle, the anticipation started to pile on. His eyes were locked straight on her as soon as she turned around the corner and the emotion on his face was a look of pure admiration. The way Tim looks at Lindsey is honestly so sweet and I am so happy that they found each other!
As soon as I walked into the reception space, the first thing I laid my eyes on was their gorgeous wedding cake that was topped with strawberries and covered in chocolate!! YUM!! They also had snacks from The Popcorn Bag from right here in Fredericksburg!! I felt right at home and boy, that was the PERFECT wedding snack they could've chosen. They had such a fun wedding booth and they were even able to post a bunch of the photo booth photos on Facebook - I love that feature!
Lindsey and Tim's reception was such a blast! Plus, they had a phenomenal DJ who kept them on their feet the whole night long. A bunch of the guys, including Tim, were in a fraternity at JMU and they even played a drinking game to Thunderstruck! It was so funny!! Every time the word thunderstruck was said in the song, a new person had to start drinking until it was said again! It was so crazy, but funny!!
Another favorite portion of their reception was their sunset portrait time because can we just talk about that light?! SO heavenly!! As soon as we walked outside, I about died. It was just so dreamy and I'm just dying over those veil shots!! Eek!!
Congratulations Lindsey and Timothy!! I hope y'all have an amazing honeymoon and wonderful marriage!! :)
