Kyle proposed to Lindsay on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2019 in Oahu, Hawaii. Lindsay says that she was very impressed that Kyle managed to keep the engagement ring hidden from her over the course of a 10-hour direct flight! The first day that they arrived in Hawaii, Kyle was trying to figure out where he was going to propose later that night. They got to the condo they were renting, went out to dinner with Lindsay’s parents and brother, and ended the night with fireworks on the beach. Funny enough, while they were watching fireworks on the beach, Lindsay’s dad was using Kyle’s jacket (that had the engagement ring in) as a blanket. Lindsay, not knowing, sat down next to him (almost sitting on the ring box) and said, “did I just sit on a rock?” You should have seen Kyle’s face when Lindsay said that, not knowing that he was going to be proposing to her that night! As they were walking back to the condo, Kyle and Lindsay’s mom called her name (she walks fast!) and she turned around to find him on one knee asking her to marry him!

Lindsay and Kyle’s rustic, elegant wedding at Bear Brook Valley was absolutely beautiful! I spent the morning with Lindsay and her sweet bridesmaids. They were all wearing the most adorable monogrammed pajamas which made for some fun getting ready photos! After Lindsay got into her dress, she shared a beautiful first look with her dad. It was so apparent that they have such a special relationship with one another! Then, it was time for Lindsay and Kyle to share their first look together. Lindsay and Kyle were SUCH good sports and let me photograph them all around the property despite the chilly temperatures (I promise, it was worth it!!).

As the sun began to set, guests wrapped up in cozy blankets and filed into their seats before the ceremony began. I loved watching everyones reactions as Lindsay and her dad walked down the aisle together! Their reception was an absolute BLAST! Lindsay, Kyle, and their families set up all of the decor themselves (I was so impressed!). They even had large cut out letters that spelled out “The Powers” across the DJ station. So awesome!

Congratulations, Lindsay and Kyle! It was such a joy to photograph your wedding day ❤️ Enjoy some of my favorites below!
