A Hawthorne Hotel Wedding
I couldn't think of a better to end my 2013 wedding season than with Michael and Lindsay's lovely wedding. Deeps shades of purple, the last of fall foliage and a slight chill in the air, all make my heart leap just a little. Add in a beautiful couple, some stunning details, a love filled day and you've got my heart swooning!!
Michael and Lindsay reside in the DC area but chose to wed in New England. They absolutely love this area, especially Lindsay who attended Tufts University. The place holds such a special spot in Lindsay's heart that they chose to say their vows at Goddard Chapel located in the center of the historic and beautiful campus. They were surrounded by family and friends who traveled in from all over the world to celebrate with them, friends and family who represented the various parts of their lives. For Lindsay and Michael, sharing this special day with those that they love most was incredibly important. During the ceremony they looked out at their guests and with tears in their eyes, they smiled, overwhelmed with gratefulness to be able to share this day with those they loved. (And very happily danced the night away together at the Hawthorne Hotel:)).
