Travis and Lindsay were both enrolled as freshman at North Carolina’s East Carolina University in fall 2007. Lindsay, a North Carolina native, pledged Alpha Phi sorority in her first year of college. It was through one of her good fraternity friends that she met Travis, a native of Stamford, Connecticut. Lindsay and Travis remained friends throughout their early college years until they began dating during their junior year. During their final years of college, Lindsay and Travis remained head-over-heels for each other. After graduating in 2011, Travis and Lindsay moved back to their hometowns. They continued dating through a long distance relationship until Lindsay made the decision to move north in 2012.
For their last vacation of summer 2014, Travis and Lindsay adventured to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was on this trip that their lives would forever change. After a romantic dinner on their first night stay, Travis suggested for them both to sit out on their balcony and look at the stars. Little did Lindsay know, Travis was about to ask her a big question. Travis gently sat Lindsay down in the one of the outdoor balcony chairs, where he then leaned in for a kiss. He followed by gazing into her eyes and speaking sweet words, elaborating on how their relationship has blossomed over the past five years and he truly could not envision himself without her. After vowing himself to remain hers forever, Travis got down on one knee and asked Lindsay to marry him. Of course, she said “YES!”
Lindsay anticipated a longer engagement because she had envisioned her wedding day since she was a little girl. During the year and a half that she and Travis were engaged, she planned her wedding herself, without the help of a wedding planner. The theme she wanted for her spring wedding day was timeless romance. This elegant setting was expressed throughout many details of her and Travis’s special day.
The bridesmaids sparkled in various styles of Adrianna Papell and Aidan Mattox light pink dresses, while the bride stunned in an ivory Judd Waddell fit and flare gown, featuring a lace bodice and beaded belt. To finish off her romantic look, the bride also donned a cathedral length veil lined with matching lace.
Lindsay and Travis chose to be wed at St. Sebastian Roman Catholic Church and their reception followed at the Barns at Wesleyan. Both venues fit her romantic vision perfectly. Her soft color palette consisted of blush pinks, ivories and gold. Lush peonies and garden roses were the focus of her floral arrangements. Dim lit tree branches and an array of family wedding photos were highlights of the cocktail area, while dramatic chandeliers and opulent sheer fabric hung lavishly from the ceilings in the main dining area.
Travis and Lindsay’s love for one another was captured from the moment they laid eyes on one another at their first look at the Wadsworth Mansion to the very end of the night. The newlyweds said their goodbyes under a sparkler send off, and then jumped into a vintage 1965 Rolls Royce. It was then they began their next chapter of their happily ever after.
