Real RVA Wedding: Lindsay & Robby’s Winery Wedding

September 12, 2015

Lindsay and Robby were nearly neighbors at James Madison University, so they spent a lot of time riding the bus together without actually meeting.  It wasn’t until that bus made an abrupt stop and threw Robby at Lindsay’s feet that the ice was broken.

Five years later, on their dating anniversary, the two were preparing for a fancy dinner at their resort in Cancun, Mexico.  Robby suggested they set up his tablet for a photo on the beach beforehand, but instead of posing next to Lindsay, he got down on one knee.  Lindsay was in such a state of surprise that he had to ask twice!

Lindsay says, “I attended the Richmond Wedding Expo in January 2015 and got a ton of information.  I even checked a few things off of my to-do list that day like booking with Lou Stevens Glam Squad and setting up a tuxedo rental appointment for Robby!”  Britny from the Glam Squad was on hand to make sure the veil fit in just right!

Lindsay says, “Our favorite part of the wedding day was the first look.  For the first time that day, I felt like time was standing still and that we were both able to finally breathe!  In that moment, I don’t think I’ve ever felt more certain that I was making one of the best decisions of my life.  The first look definitely took the pressure off of the ceremony – we were both so relaxed!”

Lindsay tells us, “My flowers were one of my favorite parts of the decor.  I loved all the greenery — it made all of the bouquets look so full!  The Kim Moody Design team did such an amazing job of listening to what I liked and didn’t like and creating the perfect bouquets and arrangements.”

Wyndham Virginia Crossings has so many great spots for photos!

After plenty of portrait time, everyone headed to James River Cellars Winery for the ceremony and reception.

The more she planned, the more Lindsay developed a rustic winery theme to fit with their charming venue.

Once the ceremony was over, Lindsay and Robby were able to enjoy the fun, relaxed atmosphere they created for their closest family and friends.

DJ mFace, owner of Bow Tied Weddings, kept the party going!

Honeylyn with Kim Moody Design made sure that everything ran smoothly throughout the entire day.
