Brian and Lindsey met through mutual friends before he proposed in front of the Bellagio Fountain in Las Vegas. Lindsey immediately consulted with some of her married friends and knew she wanted to feel like a princess on her big day. That gave her a general idea of what she wanted: lots of flowers, candles and romance.


Lindsey purchased a Casablanca ball gown from Stephenson's of Elkhart. She had a firm idea of what she wanted (princess gown with bling) so she didn't put herself through the task of trying on several gowns. 


She had heard recommendations from friends about The Riverside Terrace in Mishawaka, Indiana. After her and Brian went to tour it, they instantly knew it was their reception venue. In fact, they were so sure, they didn't even look at another venue. The Riverside Terrace overlooks the famous St. Joseph River and boasts a beautiful ballroom.


Originally, Lindsey was hoping to have purple be her main color for the wedding, but her husband quickly vetoed that idea! She then moved on to coral as she loved the vibrancy it offered. She also was inspired by a greenery wall she saw on Pinterest and incorporated one of her own with twinkling lights behind the head table. "It added that perfect romantic garden feel to our wedding day," says Lindsey. 



Lindsey's bouquet was comprised of white peonies, white lilies, white freesia and quicksand roses while her bridesmaids carried bouquets of coral peonies and roses, quicksand roses, white waxflower and light pink majolica spray roses. There were three variations of centerpieces but they featured white hydrangeas, peach stock, quicksand roses, coral roses, light pink spray roses, blush tulips, curly willow and ivy.
