A Main Street Station Wedding: Lindsay and Robby

We met at Lindsay’s parents’ house for the pre-wedding preparations before the Main Street Station wedding.  Lindsay and her ladies were in the brightly lit kitchen chatting and putting the final touches on Lindsay’s hair and makeup.  Her parents’ home was gorgeous!  The grounds were immaculately landscaped and greenery was inching in from every corner.  The hydrangeas were in full bloom and it was the perfect backdrop for First Look photos.   Lindsay was calm and appeared to enjoy every moment of this time with her sisters and friends.  She had been waiting for this day for a long time, and she was savoring each and every moment.

Robby and his groomsmen made their arrival when Lindsay and the bridesmaids were safely out of sight.  They joked on the porch during prep photos and were happy to be there by Robby’s side on the day he would marry his one true love.  They wore grey suits and could not have looked better.  They were handsome, kind, and willing to go along with all of my photographic requests despite the heat.  Like Lindsay’s, Robby’s demeanor was calm.  The stress he bore weeks prior about the final wedding plans had slipped away into unimportance as he focused on the thing, the only important, meaningful thing, that was waiting for him a few hours down the road.  His bride.  And nothing else mattered.

Robby stood in the middle of the back yard, among the tall trees and hydrangea bushes.  Lindsay made her way towards him through the vine-ridden arbor and down the brick walkway.  As she tapped him on his shoulder, Lindsay was all smiles.  And when Robby turned to see his beautiful bride for the first time, he was overcome.  As they took in the moment, they embraced and laughed.  Any nerves they felt disappeared and the comfort of their love reminded them that they were once again right where they were supposed to be.  Together.

Standing on the arms of her mother and father, surrounded by the exquisite marble of Main Street Station and those that loved her, Lindsay walked towards her groom. Robby waited with an open heart to promise his forever to the woman he had fallen in love with years before.  Vows and rings were exchanged in a unique and personal ceremony, full of personal touches and meaningful music.  And once they had officially wed, they were ready to greet their guests and spend the rest 0f the night in celebration.  And that is exactly what they did.

Lindsay and Robby,

From the moment I learned about your engagement and you entered the contest to win free wedding photography, I have been looking forward to your Main Street Station wedding.  Your friends and family who “voted” for you were kind, full of love for the two of you, and simply hilarious!  I knew that your wedding would be a blast, and it was.  Your sincerity is overwhelming, and the love you share is evident.  You are both blessed beyond measure by the depth of friendships you have and by the family who surrounds you.  Thank you for sharing them all with me. And thank you for making me feel just as important as everyone else.  I am honored to call you “friends”.  Have a fabulous honeymoon in Montreal, and may you have a lifetime of love and laughter ahead of you!

Much love. M 🙂

Lindsay’s bouquet donned a variety of broaches.  Each one of them had special meaning to her.  I love when bride’s add sentimental, personal touches to their wedding day.  It makes the day that much more meaningful.

Lindsay was the first of my brides to incorporate gold into here wedding colors.  I have to say, I am in love.

Lindsay’s three sisters, her mother, and her three best friends were there to make sure she looked extra amazing for her special day.  This is Lindsay’s sister, Heather, on the left.  See the resemblance?  Thought so.  All five of the Bien ladies are stunning.

Main Street Station does not need any extra help in terms of décor.  The architecture is fabulous and a perfect backdrop for a wedding.

We were lucky to have the sun poke through the buildings of the Richmond, VA skyline just enough to get some quick sunset photos on the balcony.
