The Story of Amanda and Lindsey
Amanda and Lindsey’s love story started back in 2014, when they had their first date at the New Parkway Theatre in Oakland. From then on, they were inseparable. After finishing their degrees, they decided to move to sunny California to pursue their careers and to raise a sweet little puppy together.
In 2017, Amanda decided to surprise Lindsey on a very special trip to Chicago. While admiring the beautiful Chicago skyline, Lindsey made a snarky joke saying, “What, are you going to propose to me?” comment, to which Amanda scoffed at…and then seconds later, Amanda got down on her knee and popped the question.
Making this proposal even more special, was that Amanda had their friends dress up, in not so convincing disguises, to witness the proposal. And of course, Lindsey said yes, which is where we are now!
On February 8, 2019, Amanda and Lindsey gathered with friends and family at Green Gables Wedding Estate to tie the knot!
This is one of my FAVORITE venues to shoot at. It’s surrounded by ivy colored arbors and rose gardens, in a secluded forest wonderland. They recently revamped their Couple’s Suites, housing them in separate buildings now, and remodeling the Grooms Suite in Steam Punk decor.
Check out another wedding we photographed at Green Gables before it was remodeled, HERE!
Congratulations to this beautiful couple!!!
A Special First Look
You’ll notice that they not only did one, but two First Looks. We have actually done this a few times in the past. Dad got to have a special moment with his daughter before giving her away.
And the most romantic part! Amanda and Lindsey read their vows to each other during this private moment.
