a Carillon wedding: lindsay + phil

I told myself that after writing all of my pre-planning blogs and giving insight into what my big day would be like, that I would not fumble and I would follow up with a wedding post. As many of you know, that day hasn’t come. But darn it, I just did make your day today, now didn’t I? Our photographers post was so amazing, that I just sent her link to all of our friends and family and left most of you in the dark. Oops!

To catch you up, I wrote a series on my former blog, Dulcet and Dapper, about how I planned and designed my own wedding. Feel free to catch up by reading: our engagement story, choosing the venue, designing the save the dates, registering, giving our guests the Richmond experience and showing them true southern hospitality, menu planning, the dress, crafting and not crafting, and the final count down!

Creating this blog post has made me a sappy mess. I spent hours reminiscing like it was yesterday when I was supposed to be uploading photos or writing text. I have pretty much left no aspect of our wedding day unturned here, so please forgive (or enjoy!) the massive amounts of photos. I’m going to let our incredible images speak for themselves. Just know I went from bawling my eyes out to a dance-off with my sister and mom in a matter of minutes.

I look back on February 23, 2013 and smile so, so wide. I remember the funniest things from the day. Like my 18-week pregnant sister who while driving my mother and I to the Carillon while I was holding back my first tears of the day, she screamed “I need a beer!”. Or looking over at my 80-year-old grandfather stuffing his face with our “after-tizers” of cheeseburgers and chips. I’m so glad these memories have stuck with me! We are so lucky to have shared these memories with people we truly love. Thank you for following us on this journey! Married life is the best.
