They met in college at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. They initially met at a party but officially “sealed the deal” as boyfriend and girlfriend after Pat proved his willingness to fight for Lindsey. One Saturday night, Pat decided that he wanted him and Lindsey to date one another exclusively. So he texted her. Much to his surprise Lindsey was actually on a date with someone else – but that didn’t stop Pat from making his way over to her apartment to get his girl! And he did!

Fast forward five years to their wedding day. Pat and Lindsey were surrounded by their closest friends and family as they promised their lives to one another overlooking the James River. It was the perfect summer night for a wedding! With Lindsey’s contagious joy and Pat’s “go with the flow” attitude, these two make the perfect pair! And it was such an honor to capture their perfect day!!

It’s not often that a past “failed” relationship will make it into a father of the bride toast in such a unique way that ties into a couple’s current story. But, this one has a happy ending! Enjoy a look into Pat + Lindsey’s beautiful wedding day!
