They met in college at Indiana University first as friends and then, well, as more than friends, with a slice of pizza in Bloomington, Indiana here and there. But then….. well he told her she looked like Jennifer Aniston and she got the hint. He liked her… but she was the heart breaker telling him that she thought of him more as a friend. After putting his heart on the line, he had to stomach the “friendship card.” While the conversation continued, the flirting was minimal, but the day he noticeably made sure their skin did not touch while sitting in a group of people, that was the day Lindsey’s head and heart connected. Like a dagger to the heart she realized she may have been over looking something. So the week following that moment, she got more giddy about the possibility of letting him know she liked him, so a plan went into action. That plan went into action one evening after she got off work and casually came by the house with food and asked him to “help her put it in the fridge.” (I belly laugh when I just think about that moment. Ha!) But he, without hesitation, met her in the kitchen and she mention how he mentioned dating a few weeks ago. She said, “I’d be down.” Not giving him the option of not being interested, he smiled his big Mike smile, and gave her a fist bump saying “Let’s do it!” And here we go….
And now as we enter the final months before the wedding, my heart only screams of more happiness for the two of them (if that is even possible to have an ounce more happiness for them). In October, they will make the trek to Florida and say those beautiful vows on the soft sands of St. Pete and I have the amazing honor of standing next to her not just as her maid of honor, but life long friend. My eyes well up in tears writing this as I reminisce the moments we have had together as the best of friends. I thank the Lord daily for you Lindsey, and for bringing Mike, the most perfect man for you, into your life despite the obstacles.
I flew into town to shoot the Korte Wedding in Noblesville, Indiana over the 4th of July weekend and so conveniently was then able to spend time shooting Mike and Lindsey’s engagement photos. We started on the south side of Indianapolis at Hickory Stick Golf Course and then made our way to the breath taking Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA). Such a fun afternoon not only spending time together, but laughing until our sides ached. I promise I don’t lie when I say we would have fun. Check out here on what to expect at your engagement shoot. So here are some of the laughs, the sweet moments, and the love that is Mike and Lindsey.
What a location to take engagement photos at, right? And it doesn’t hurt that you have some pretty darn good looking people on that side of the camera as well 🙂 To say I have been a giddy hot mess through this whole process is an understatement. My heart has been bursting with joy. How great it feels to know that 1,000 miles between Indiana and Florida doesn’t define a friendship. To spend these moments with her is sweet bliss and I would not change it for the world.
Until next time…
