“We met a few years ago at my best friend’s birthday party on the beach,” says Lindsay of her first encounter with Nolan.
“I was taking a break to eat a sandwich I had brought, when suddenly Nolan came out of nowhere and asked if he could have a bite. I’m usually not willing to share food with strangers, but I thought he was cute and I liked his smile…so why not? I handed him the other part of my sandwich, and the rest is history!”
While Nolan may have been suave and easygoing with his initial approach, when it came time to propose, he was anything but…recounts Lindsay: “We were at my mother’s house in Beaumont, playing a game of UNO, when I looked up and Nolan suddenly looked as if he had run 20 miles. He had sweat pouring down his face, and was red as could be. I asked if he was OK, but couldn’t get an answer out of him. We were all getting ready to go to a small-town country dance hall and concert. It turns out that Nolan had plans to propose there, but he just couldn’t wait. Next thing I know, I look to my right and he is kneeling down next to me, holding a ring in my face. All we could do was laugh and cry!”
More tears and laughter filled the couple’s ivory, green and gold winter wedding at Ashton Gardens North, where they wed in the venue’s window-filled country chapel, in front of 150 gathered guests. After their emotional ceremony, the couple joined friends and family for dinner, dancing and a seven-tier cake with gorgeous magnolia-flower accents, from Cakes By Gina. The bride says she cherishes the moment she and her groom saw each other for the first time in their wedding finery…almost as much as she loves the memory of “watching all of our loved ones have fun on the dance floor!” Congratulations, Lindsay & Nolan, and thank you so much for sharing your most precious day with us and our followers!
