These two have the sweetest proposal story! From the bride, Lindy,
“The proposal — in November, Michael took me out to celebrate my 24th birthday. We got dressed up and went to my favorite restaurant in the city. I had an inkling that the proposal was coming soon, but was trying hard not to make assumptions. After our long dinner, he told me he had a gift for me that was too big to bring to the restaurant so it was at his sister’s apartment… so I was thinking okayyy not the ring. We went the outside of her apartment, and there was a white bike with a big bow on it locked up! This was an amazingly sweet gesture since I had recenetly had my bike stolen in the city. Michael asked me to ride the bike around and we laughed and laughed, my scarf blowing in the wind and nose running since it was so cold. Then, I got off the bike and Michael told me three things as he got down on one knee: He told me how much he loves me, he told me how beautiful I am to him, and he told me that for the rest of his life he would like the honor of telling me both of those things. AND I SAID YES!!!”
When they were wed this October, they invited us along to capture every little detail!
The day started at The Peninsula where Lindy and her bridesmaids prepared for the big day with hair and make-up. Meanwhile, the guys suited up across the hotel in their tuxes. Lindy looked perfect in her low back dress adorned with a large bow, and could not wait to see her dad. They shared an adorable first look after Lindy’s mom and sister got her dressed for the big day.
The couple met at the alter of St. Alphonsus Church. Michael was blown away by how great Lindy looked, and we just adore his reaction as she walks down the aisle. The two shared vows, rings, and a kiss.. with that they were wed, and hopped on their Trolley to go back to The Peninsula Hotel for their reception.
Kehoe did a fabulous job on the floral decor, we just adore the leafy floral installations above the dance floor, the twinkling candle light, their gold linens, tall centerpieces, lanterns, and every detail in between. The room filled with romance as soon as the two entered. They shared a first dance, cut their cake from Defloured topped with a “Hooray” topper, heard toasts from their loved ones, and danced the night away to the sounds of the Ken Arlen Orchestra. Our favorite part of the evening was when Michael sang Wagon Wheel to his bride, and everyone danced along. So cute!
Thanks so much for including us in your wedding you two, congratulations on forever!by
