DIY Wedding: Lindsay & Christine

From Christine: As our one year wedding anniversary approaches, we realize we should probably getting around to doing two things: 1. finally send out our thank-you cards, and 2. submit photos to your website. 

Lindsay and I were married in Poughkeepsie, NY on October 25th, 2015. With her family hailing from up in Rochester, and mine down in Queens, we selected Poughkeepsie as a good “in-the-middle” compromise (except anyone familiar with NY geography will know that my family definitely got the much closer end of this deal. Thanks, Lindsay).

The wedding itself was an absolute labor of love. Lindsay being a graphic designer and me a production artist, we knew we’d DIY-ing the heck out of our wedding. From the centerpieces to the cake topper to the card box to all of the printed pieces (menu, table numbers, escort cards)—you name it, we designed/produced it. We even had a team of family and friends join me early in the day to do all of the floral arrangements (we owe them, BIG TIME).

We woke up to dark skies and rain on the morning of our wedding, but as luck would have it, right as Lindsay arrived to meet me at our venue for our first look, the rain stopped, the clouds parted, and the sun shone bright. We got to say our I-do’s in an outdoor ceremony area overlooking the majestic Hudson River. Thank you, Mother Nature!

The entire day surpassed all of our expectations and wishes. We have fond memories of floating on air in a bubble of love the whole day. We are excited to celebrate our first wedding anniversary together and look forward to more floating love-bubbles in years to come (I know, I know…very cheesy).
