Lindsay + John | West Virginia Wedding | Part 1
Confession: I’ve never wanted to live in West Virginia, but if you could guarantee that John and Lindsay would be my next door neighbors, I’d move there in a heartbeat.
He didn’t take his eyes off of her. The whole day. Made sure she was safe. Taken care of.
She lit up the room. All day. Every place she went. The most beautiful woman in the room. John knew it from the moment he met her, and on their wedding day, no one could deny anything different.
They’re possibly one of the most down-to-earth, genuine couples I’ve ever met. Neither of them has ever met a stranger, and they’re constantly thinking of everyone’s needs above their own. That’s true beauty.
John and Lindsay opted for the First Look, which Kevin and I are BIG FANS OF! It helps the day run super smooth — once the ceremony ends, there’s a flawless flow from one party to the next with no disruptions in between. Friends and family appreciate getting the photos done beforehand so they can enjoy the party, and the bride and groom are less stressed to get those “must-have” photos early in the day so they can let loose after the ceremony, as well. We HIGHLY recommend seeing each other before the ceremony. I can’t speak highly enough of the First Look.
As a side note: Kevin and I strive to make the First Look special for each couple. Lindsay and John knew what location they wanted, and their moms each wanted to be a part of this time, as well. See their kids during this special moment. This is a very close family, and John and Lindz wanted their First Look to be kept within their family. We honored that and contributed to that intimate moment, as well. We’ll help plan something special and specific to you, as as a couple, too.
