Typically I try to meet my couples before the wedding. Wedding days can be hectic and stressful and you never know exactly what will happen, so it’s usually easiest if we are already comfortable with each other. Sometimes though, that just doesn’t happen, whether by distance or timing or schedules. So it was that Lindsey and I spoke to each other on the phone several times before the wedding, and I drove to their ceremony location thinking, I wonder what they’re like?
Lindsey and I introduced ourselves and started talking about the day. After a moment, she said, “Well, there’s really nowhere nice in here to take pictures of the dress, so you can take it whereever you want. Maybe outside? You can hang it off a tree.”
That’s when I knew we would get along.
Lindsey is beautiful and sweet and carries a certain easy grace about her. Andy’s got a great sense of humor and his reputation seems to precede him- rampant tales of high school shenanigans reminded me an awful lot of our own high school pranks. And their bridal party was equally entertaining. It’s great when you can meet people for the first time and feel like they could easily slip into your circle of friends.
Andy & Lindsey had a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Bernard of Clairvaux Roman in Indiana, PA, and their reception was at The Event Hall in Shelocta, PA. The ceremony was beautiful and emotional and the party afterwards… Well. I’ll let the photos tell you what kind of party that was. :)
