Some weddings are emotional. Some weddings are a party. Some weddings are epic. And then there are those like Lindsay and Alex’s Zen Wedding Reception that are all of the above and then some.  We feel truly honored and blessed to have been chosen to be a part of this amazing day.  I have a hard time even putting into words how amazing this experience was for us. From the above and beyond hospitality of the families, to the awesome group of bridesmaids and groomsmen, the all star cast of vendors, to last but not least an amazing couple with an awesome love story, it really was an event that will rank in our all time favs for us.

It was hard to narrow it down to just a few so please enjoy 150+ of my favs from the day!

The personal touches on this wedding were everywhere. These cufflinks were a gift from the bride. Catch the reference to Harry Potter? (which both the bride and groom are huge fans)
