Lindsey & Rob met during welcome week at Western Michigan University when Rob was on the move in crew and helped move Lindsey into her dorm. Rob caught Lindsey’s eye and eventually they started dating. They went on vacation last August and Rob proposed to Lindsey on a hike with friends. Rob wanted to show Lindsey a waterfall, so they walked off from the group to it and when they got there, Rob asked Lindsey to spend forever with him. Rob and Lindsey were married last Friday at a beautiful ceremony surrounded by their closest family and friends at a castle just outside metro Detroit. Rob and Lindsey are big goofballs and very affectionate with each other and it’s just so obvious how much fun they have together and how in love they are!
Lindsey wore a beaded ballgown fit for a Disney princess, which was the perfect choice for a wedding at a castle, and a piece of lace laced into her hair. I love ballgowns with big tulle skirts because of the way they move in photos. Rob twirled Lindsey around in it in front of a turret and those are some of my favorite portraits of the two of them! One of my favorite parts of the day was not only seeing how excited Rob and Lindsey were to get married, but how excited all of their friends and family were for them and how emotional the day was for everyone. The moms were crying, the dads were tearing up and there were lots of sweet, sentimental moments all around, like Rob’s grandparents giggling to each other at a table in the corner, Lindsey dancing with Rob’s grandpa near the end of the night and sharing her father daughter dance with both her dad and step-dad. I love how weddings bring families together and there’s no better way to spend the day than surrounded by those who you love dearly and who love you back.
Lindsey & Rob, thank you for allowing me to document you wedding day and letting me into your lives! I so enjoyed getting to know you both, from our first meeting over the best gourmet tea, your Belle Isle engagement session and now wonderful wedding day! I hope you both love and cherish these photos for decades to come! Much love, Jen. xx
