It’s been families, kiddos, families, love, all September and October! I’m going to catch a big breath, and then post all this loving happiness!
When a Michigan girl meets a California boy in Utah, true love happens. When they get married in Texas, it turns into pure magic.
Thank you, thank you Lizzy for having me fly all the way out to be a part of your beautiful, intimate wedding. There might have been a little rain (so much rain!) at the Ceremony, but that didn’t stop a single thing. Snippet and Ink ran a lovely feature on these two today, and check them out for more of the amazing details, and heart and soul Lizzy poured into her wedding.
XOXO ~ Lindsey

“Love her, love her, love her! If she favours you, love her. If she wounds you, love her. If she tears your heart to pieces – and as it gets older and stronger, it will tear deeper – love her, love her, love her!” -Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
I’ve always loved the darker side of things. Wuthering Heights was the first book that I really remember inhaling (anyone else read like that?) I like stormy days, and songs in minor, wandering souls, and I’ve been a lover of fairy tales as long as I can remember. Early spring tends to bring this side out of me, and Allison, of La Feté, and I were inspired by the darker side of fairy tales, with a little Great Expectation mixed in. We wanted a shoot that was haunting, emotive, and follows the journey of a girl, neglected in her wedding finery, waiting for her lost love.
There are so many stories I want to tell about this shoot, which we secretly dubbed, haunted mansion. From my assistant falling into a rotting pool of water, flowers three days late, some blood and near fainting, there was definite a bit of misadventure going on as well. But that is what makes what we do such a great adventure. Read below for all the amazing contributors, who lent their talents and gifts to our labor of love!
If you’d like to see, Abandoned Mansion was featured on Magnolia Rouge! Eek! Also, I wanted to send a lot of love to Allison, La Feté. She has been an amazing collaborator, friend, artist and soul sister. There was a lot going on during this shoot, and she still created the most beautiful world. Thank you Allison!
Many thanks to,
Model: Amanda Larsen, for being embodying our concept, being a beautiful soul inside and out, and putting up with a whole lot of crazy, all while maintaining happy spirits. You are amazing!

Catherine and Jama are the start of something really, really wonderful. I loved my time with them! Time spent exploring mountains, and eating tacos, running through fireworks and celebrating their happiness! It’s been pretty much the best. Thank you for having me along for the journey! Congratulations Catherine and Jama!
Also, a shout-out to Lizy Bowden for the gorgeous flowers. She is amazing!

A beautiful evening, with two beautiful people. I love Catherine’s custom dress, and pretty hair wreath and florals, by Lizy Bowden.

Spring, Winter, Spring…That’s what a few miles up the canyon will give you in Utah! And Catherine and Jama are perfect whether it’s a little green or a little snowy. I think the world of these two, and their sweet happiness! It’s Catherine and Jama week (or weeks, knowing my blog track record.) I can’t wait to show their bridals and wedding day. It includes tacos and and confetti canons, so you know it’s going to be a party!
