When I first spoke with Lindsey, one of the reasons we connected was because we were both moms! Chase is a firefighter in Loganville, which is where I grew up, and they have two handsome boys—Cason and Watson. To be able to capture the day that these four officially became a family was really special!
Their day began at the James Madison Inn, which is located in historic Madison and right next to The Variety Works wedding venue. We had a few sprinkles but the rain and clouds soon gave way to sun in the afternoon! Lindsey’s gown was absolutely stunning—and she looked every inch the classic southern bride with her cathedral length veil and her gorgeous bouquet created by JL Designs that included cotton blossoms! We took advantage of the southern-style porch of the James Madison Inn for the shots of Lindsey with her bridesmaids in their lace trimmed robes and her mom zipping her into her gown.
Lindsey included her sweet boys in her day, and Cason had a great time getting groomsmen shots with his dad! When it came time for the ceremony, and Lindsey began her walk down the aisle with her dad, Chase’s eyes filled with tears as he watched Lindsey gliding toward him.
Their God-centered ceremony included a rustic cross with three cords that Lindsey and Chase braided, payers, and a joy-filled kiss as they were pronounced husband and wife! After capturing some beautiful portraits of Chase and Lindsey at the front of the James Madison and the gorgeous lawn of The Variety Works, the couple was ready to celebrate their marriage and party at the reception! They shared their first dance and meal together, and when it came time for cake cutting, Lindsey couldn’t help herself and playfully wiped some cake on Chase’s nose. After the father-daughter and mother-son dances, Chase and Lindsey grabbed their boys and shared a sweet family dance. One of the most memorable moments of the reception was when it came time for the bouquet and garter toss, and Chase danced out of the back room dressed in his firefighter jacket and hat to retrieve Lindsey’s garter…the whole room was laughing!
Their beautiful day closed with a romantic sparkler send-off. I am so excited for this sweet family as they offically embark on the journey of life together. Chase and Lindsey, congratulations! I wish you and your sweet family every joy and blessing imaginable!
