I Do: Lindsay + Tim | Pomme, Radnor
The first time I ever assisted a photographer at a wedding, I had a bit of an incident with a swan.
I was crouching on a quaint footbridge, trying to snap a shot of the venue from afar. What I didn’t realize was that a swan had decided to glide gracefully under the bridge and peck at my leg with a vengeance. I screamed and flailed and thanked my lucky stars that all of the above didn’t happen in front of any guests. Needless to say, a fear of swans was added to my list of many quirks.
So, when I was scouting Lindsay and Tim’s intimate wedding venue at Pomme, I spent most of the time sweet-talking the swans and making sure we were on the same page. Thankfully, it worked like a charm because I left the wedding without a single awkward swan encounter.
The venue — much like the couple — was natural and romantic. The atmosphere was complemented with beautiful flowers from Jennie Love at Love ‘n Fresh Flowers.
The cocktail hour was really special since the couple had their friends play bluegrass as guests mingled. Tim, who plays banjo with the group, jumped in for a few songs and had everyone swooning when he began singing “Wagon Wheel.” As a result, my husband and I were belting out “Wagon Wheel” around the house for weeks. I can’t think of many things that top a banjo-playing groom.
The evening ended in a downpour, which made the lyrics “rock me mama like the wind and the rain” even more fitting.
These two are amazing and I consider myself lucky to have been there to photograph their wedding. Special thanks to my husband Pete for joining me in capturing the day.
