Steve & Lindsey

These two are getting married in just a few short days! Their wedding is THIS SATURDAY!! We're so happy to call these Steve & Lindsey our friends and we had a blast during their engagement session in Downtown St. Pete. We explored the famous Haslam's Book Store and used some of the murals that St. Pete is known for. Their love for each other is so obvious and natural that it shines through their photographs.

When & how did you meet?

Our mutual friend Michael Griffith had just purchased a house. It was empty and in need of furnishings. Lindsey was moving out of her apartment and offered Michael her couch and a table for his new home. Steve tagged along and met Lindsey for the first time shortly after moving to Florida. We often hung out with the same people and interacted at different events, unsuspecting of the love that would ignite after two years of being friends.

When & how did you get engaged?

On November 17, 2016, after exactly one year of dating which was filled with adventures, writing letters back and forth, and the mutual knowledge that this was what God had been planning all along, Steve surprised Lindsey with 12 letters given in secret throughout the day, recounting all that he had learned about her for each month they had been together. With each letter, a rose. After reading the last letter, which was accompanied by a wishbone they'd broken in half the previous Christmas, he got down on one knee and finally told her what he had wished for.

Steve as explained by Lindsey.

Steve is a classic gentleman in modern times. I think my sister's exact words when I was boyfriend bragging early in our relationship were, "Where did you find this guy, the 1940s??" He has an incredible heart for serving others, talented at pretty much everything, deeply rooted in his faith, and handsome to boot! He is perfect (for me) and I'm so excited to watch his infectious spirit continue to transform the world around him.

Lindsey as explained by Steve.

She is without question my standard of beauty. She defines what it means to be intelligent in my eyes, constantly seeking to grow in her understanding of the world around her, finding wisdom and strengthening her faith. She does not settle for mediocrity and inspires the people in her life to strive for more than what can easily be attained. I can't picture a world without her dancing to its beat right here next to me.
