I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Lindsey and Keith’s romance started when they were growing up in small-town Ohio and continued for ten years of long distance. Keith proposed on the Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Center shortly after making the big apple their home and the couple celebrated with a big bash in their home town. This shoot, however, is a post-wedding portrait series at New York Public Library captured by Lauren Galloway  with florals by Designs By Ahn and it’s just so, so beautiful.

While growing up in their small hometown of Osgood, Ohio, Lindsey & Keith met, fell in love and had a long distance relationship for many years as they both followed their career paths. Keith actually lived across the street from Lindsey’s Grandparent’s house while growing up and moved to her school in the third grade.

During college, Lindsey had internships that took her to England working at Alexander McQueen to the Gap in San Fransisco. Though her career in fashion took her to many different cities, they kept their long distance relationship going over 10 years. A few years ago they moved to New York City to start this new chapter of their lives together.

Keith proposed on the Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Center shortly after making the big apple their home. It was a long time coming! With their roots still in Osgood, they choose their hometown to get married in, to be able to celebrate with all their family, friends and the entire community residents, around 300 guests!

With NYC being their home, it made sense to take one more couple’s shoot after the wedding. Without having to worry about the rush of a wedding day, they got back into the dress and suit, and we took beautiful morning portraits at the New York Public Library on 5th Avenue. It’s an iconic landmark that made for a stunning setting. Designs by Ahn created a delicate, organic bouquet for this shoot with a mixture of pinks, yellows and deep burgundy.

Her bridal jacket was made for a shot like the ones we took along 5th Avenue!  Lindsey had hand painted her new last name with a DIY kit by Bash Creative Design on a modern white leather jacket to wear at her reception. She also gifted black leather jackets to her bridesmaids each with their name hand painted on the inside collar. You would expect to see amazing style like this for a fashion designer’s wedding, like her Liz Martinez gown with placed lace and sheer bell sleeves, she nailed it!

Design and planning team Olea & Fig set out to capture the unique natural and surreal landscape of Southeast Asia—an escape from digital information overload, the chaos of urban living. The dreamlike styled shoot took place at Yangmingshan in Taipei, Taiwan. Working with Catnip Flower Studio, they portrayed an unexpected natural beauty with withering leaves, bare twigs, the moody yet lovely feather-like reed grass in a palette of  muted earthy tones paired with deep, rich pinks and purples. It’s an interpretation of a fairytale fantasy during a calm, serene wintertime on an island, and captured beautifully by The Stage Photography.

What made the wedding special and unique?

We liked that our guests didn’t have to travel throughout the evening. We were able to have our ceremony and reception at Planterra. This made the evening much more intimate! And, we had the whole venue to ourselves because Planterra only hosts one event per day. It’s the most special and unique place on its own, and their creative abilities are amazing! They are so talented!

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

I had been gown shopping for about two months, but hadn’t found that really special dress. My mom and I had a day planned to run errands and we decided to check out this one last gown shop. We started sifting through all the gorgeous gowns, and all of a sudden I saw one! The beads were sparkling, just slightly, and the embroidery was exquisite. I picked it up and it was a million sizes too big, but I decided to try it on. I walked out of the dressing room and we all knew, this was my dress. I went home that night to think about it and by the next morning I called Bella Bridal and ordered the gown.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

After we had concluded the ceremony, we were able to spend a few moments alone together. It was nice to have a little moment of quiet before the night began! We were officially husband and wife and the feelings surrounding us were love, comfort, happiness, warmth and peace.

Tell us how you met and became engaged.

We started talking online and eventually met at 12 Oaks Mall (right across the street from where we live now!).

Our engagement was very romantic. Nick took me to one of the most peaceful places on earth, Mackinac Island. It all started with me saying “I’m glad we finally get a relaxing weekend to ourselves.” Looking back, I could only imagine what was going through my future husband’s head after that comment. He arranged for both my immediate family and his to meet us on the island for the big surprise. Nick’s sister actually lives in Rhode Island and is one of my best friends. I never thought I would see her on one of the most memorable days of my life.

Nick took me to a high point on the island, overlooking the beautiful blue water and the Mackinaw bridge. Once we arrived on bikes, he proceeded to hand me his phone. He made me a 2 minute compilation of photos we’d taken over the last 4 years of our relationship. The tear-jerking background music he chose was “Good Riddance” by Green Day. (Needless to say, I will always think of this time when I hear that song).

While I was watching the video, he got down on one knee and proposed with his ring cam to ensure he got it all on video. We sat down, cried together and time stood still. I didn’t see what was about to come next.

Still in awe, as we slowly pedal our bikes back to our hotel, we come around a slight bend in the road and I see Steve Martz (Nick’s dad) with his paparazzi-like camera. In disbelief, faces of my loved ones began to appear in front of my eyes. I dropped my bike right in the middle of the street and ran to hug our families! We all celebrated in a moment of love, laughter and joy, but the adventure wasn’t over. Nick had arranged for a family dinner at the same hotel we would be staying at that evening. The day that I thought would be “relaxing, with not much to do” turned into so much more!
