Tells us about you and Ross as a couple.
Ross and I are a very laid back couple. We laugh the majority of the day and try not to take ourselves too seriously. We even considered eloping to avoid the stress of a wedding! He’s a helicopter pilot and I work for a tech start-up so we have enough stress in our work lives that anything we can do to combat that is icing on the cake! We LOVE to travel, hike, and anything that gets us outdoors. We adore our dogs, exploring new cities, restaurants and anything fun around town!

Lindsay on Ross: loving, intelligent, dependable and quite the jokester
How did he propose?
Well when we started our relationship we were long distance. I was living in Denver and he was in Virginia. I moved to VA to be with him and gave up so many things I loved. I had amazing friends, a beautiful city and a really independent life on my own out there. He was very aware of all that so for my birthday he flew us to Denver to see my friends! He also booked a cabin in a neighboring mountain town for us to spend some time alone together. Little did I know he had called 2 of my friends to go set up string lights all over the cabin. There was a blizzard outside but they were such champs! The lights came on when we got back from dinner and he proposed on the deck in a snowstorm!
Tell us about your wedding! Where was it? What inspired your vision?
Our wedding was at Terrain in Chadds Ford, PA. Terrain is a sister company of Anthropologie so it was already decorated in a way that resonated with me. I had a very boho vibe in mind with pampas grass, wood, string lights etc. Very ethereal and whimsical.
When did you know your Made With Love ‘Harlie’ gown was the one?
Honestly, almost immediately when I put it on. I’d seen it previously on instagram and I was in love. Once I put it on it was so much more comfortable than any other gown I’d tried and unlike any other gown I’d seen before. I loved the pattern of the lace, the sheer elements and the drama of the low back. It was one of the first gowns I’d tried on, so I left without purchasing because I had additional appointments at other salons. Each new dress I put on was compared to the Made with Love dress. Ultimately I came back the next day, tried it on again and bought it!
Your venue was gorgeous! How did it set the tone for the day?
Terrain is so beautiful before you even add touches like flowers, installations, lights etc so it was essential for creating the feel we were going for. Everything we added to the venue simply enhanced the beauty that was already there.
What was your favorite part of the wedding? What do you think you’ll remember most in 10 years?
That’s a great question. You know how everyone tells you your wedding day will be a blur? They’re right. As the bride you’re pulled in so many directions it can be really hard to focus and take it in. I think my favorite part of the day was sitting at our sweetheart table after all the craziness had died down. We were able to talk and say “Look! Look around at what we did. This turned out so beautiful and so perfect and its finally here.” It was a moment of being fully present, grateful and thrilled to be exactly where we were. I think I’ll also remember the beautiful people who attended, the people who were brave enough to stand up and speak love over us, our vows, dancing with all our friends and family and mostly laughing. I’m laughing in almost every photo because our day was filled with so much joy!
