When Lindsey first contacted me about shooting her wedding, I had no idea what I was in store for. She and Phil were gonna do this thing themselves and did they ever do it right. Lindsey wants to be a wedding planner and based on what she was able to do, I’d say she is well on her way. Phil, currently enrolled in culinary school, is dreaming of opening a restaurant or even better, a food truck in Greensboro, NC. I adore the idea and since he cooked everything at the wedding, I got to taste his fantastic traditional mexican fare. Seriously, he’d better get this food truck off the ground because the food was phenomenal! Phil, Greensboro needs you!
Now this is where I would normally list a long line of vendors to thank. In this case, though, it might sound somewhat repetitive!

Lindsey chose Hodgin Valley Farm as the setting for their darling ceremony and since I grew up on a small farm in Rockwell, NC I felt right at home. I love all the beautiful little details that add such depth to story of their wedding.
Honestly, I would be a little more than staggered to try to cook for a wedding but to cook for YOUR OWN wedding??? Phil handled this Herculean task with the calm, cool and collect of a military man. I also got an excellent lesson in the right way to chop an onion. For the record, I’ve been doing it wrong.
Hodgin Valley Farm’s main house provides a beautiful backdrop for the girls getting ready. Old farmhouses like this one are rife with wonderful angles and beautiful transitions of light that are everything I love about being a photographer.
Lindsey’s sister Brynn handled all the make-up and her beau, Xavier did everyone’s hair.
While the guests were being seated out by the lake, Phil and Lindsey they got their first look at each other on the beautiful front porch of the main house. Such happiness.
And here’s the food that Phil worked so hard to prepare for his big day.
Now we must give credit where credit is due. Phil may have made all the fantastic food at dinner but the desserts were all Lindsey.
