Lindsay & Matthew's Destination Wedding
How they met - They were in school together, and Lindsay knew from the first moment that Matthew would one day be her husband. Soon after graduating, he joined the Army and was to be stationed in Alaska, which was going to be the dealbreaker for Lindsay. However, sometimes ya love someone too much to let them go!
With family coming in from New Jersey, and Lindsay and Matthew living in Alaska, they thought it best to celebrate their special day in San Diego at Paradise Point. Surrounded by their small-but-meaningful circle of family, they tied the knot on December 27, 2016.
The story of the rings - Lindsay’s wedding band is laced with diamonds from her paternal grandmother while the diamond on her wedding ring is from her maternal grandmother.
The bride’s & groom’s mothers help them prepare for the big day.
They chose to have a first look before the ceremony, and the groom waited patiently for his bride-to-be!
Here she comes!
And.. it was worth the wait! Matthew was stunned when he saw Lindsay in her wedding dress for the first time.
There were gorgeous floral accents around the alter to match her bouquet.
“I promise to love you in good times and in bad. Life seems simple and life seems hard. You believe in me and have shown me how to love with unconditional acceptance. And everyday, you show me you are my soulmate” - Matthew
“Ten words in, and I’m already crying!” - Lindsay
“Matthew, you are my best friend. And more importantly, you are the love of my life… I am truly blessed to be a part of your life, which as of today becomes our life, together”
Sealed with a kiss.
After the ceremony, everyone celebrated with some drinks and cake.
Flour Power is a long standing, family owned bakery. They take pride in giving a unique experience to each client! For Lindsay & Matthew, they crafted a pristine white cake to match her dress and decor.
They rode in style to the final part to their special day: dinner catered by Top of the Market. This restaurant is reputable for serving the freshest of seafoods to San Diego, making them the perfect choice for a seaside wedding!
“Matt and Lindsay, may you love deeply and unconditionally. May you always put your time and energies into making each other happy, into making each other laugh, and challenging each other to stretch to reach for your dreams. May you experience a life together of love and joy while experiencing life to the fullest” - Lindsay’s father
Lindsay & Matthew, thank you for letting us join you on your special day. We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
