When planning their wedding, this bride and groom wanted to put a special focus on their ceremony, a full Catholic Mass. A priest friend from the University of Notre Dame, where they met, was an officiant, and they asked the church children’s choir to sing.
The effort paid off: “Although the reception was amazing,” says Lindsay, “the ceremony just meant so much to us and our families.” Personal touches reigned at the reception, too, including the cookie bar — a wedding tradition in Pittsburgh, Tim’s hometown — where guests could load up takeout boxes of sweet and salty treats.
Looking back, Lindsay and Tim have nothing but praise for each of their wedding details. From their first look to the last dance, the day was exactly as they’d pictured it: joyful and bright.
