There never was an outdoor wedding more beautiful than this one. Lindsey and John choose to celebrate their union at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in a gorgeous al fresco setting. After a ceremony surrounded by trees, the newlyweds headed to the tented reception space. And I'm telling you what – I've never seen a tent look quite this good before. String bistro lights provided a romantic glow while gold chiavari chairs and a combination of elevated arrangements of hydrangeas, roses, and fresh greenery along with candelabras greeted guests at the mix of long and round tables. A girly color palette of blush pink, rose gold, and champagne made the look soft and glamorous all at the same time. Adding to the feminine vibe was Lindsey's all lace off-the-shoulder Allure wedding dress from Bridal Beginning and bridesmaids clad in mismatched perfection. Overall, this wedding was light, airy, and will definitely make your heart skip a beat! Enjoy the coverage from Oakwood Photo + Video!
From the bride…
Tell me about yourselves! When and how did you meet? How long have you been together? How did you get engaged? All the juicy details!
Jon and I met back in 2014. Jon was out with some friends watching The World Cup and I was out with some friends heading to a baseball game. We exchanged numbers that day but only communicated with a few text messages over the next few weeks. It was not until Jon happened to be watching the news one morning and saw an interview that I did for Make-A-Wish (where I worked at the time) that he decided to ask me out. And the rest is history!
The proposal was a complete surprise to me. Jon and I love to travel together – it's our favorite thing to do. So many of our friends and family expected that every trip we went on would be the one when he proposed. And because of that, I never thought he would propose on a trip. I had the entire day planned with adventures for us (or so I thought). We started out on a hike to see some waterfalls and decided to hike to find a beautiful alpine lake. It was a very secluded and peaceful spot. There, on a rock jetting out into the lake, Jon got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was such a special day and could not have been more perfect!
Describe the wedding and what inspired it. What was unique about it?
Our wedding was romantic and classic. The color palette was blush, rose, and gold. The bridesmaids wore a variety of dresses in rose gold, blush, champagne, and rose – all different styles. The floral look was very soft and classic – a variety of blush colored roses accented with white hydrangeas. The tables were set with gold vases, candelabras, and a variety of votives. Our florist did a tremendous job and created the perfect glamorous and classic look for our wedding!
What was your favorite moment of the day?
The entire day was beyond perfect. There were so many moments that we will remember forever. Our favorite moment of the day was our first look. It was such a special moment that was just between Jon and me. We will cherish that moment for the rest of our lives.
Is there any advice you would give to other couples planning their big day?
Enjoy every single moment of every single day leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day. There are so many joyous occasions shared with all of the people that you love – the engagement itself, engagement party, wedding shower, bachelor/bachelorette parties, rehearsal, etc. It all goes by so quickly. Cherish and enjoy every moment. Take the time to look around and soak it all in as much as you can. And remember that things will go wrong, but don't get caught up in those details – most people will never even notice. Nothing is perfect, but your day will be perfect for you!
