Same city: Chicago. Same bar: Landmark. Same taste in music: Kanye West. Kanye's yet-to-be-released track "Homecoming" came on in the bar, and while most people went about their conversations...separately Chris and Lindsay got a jolt of excitement as they started singing along to the song that no one else knew! Chris had even just bought tickets to Kanye's concert that day! As Chris noticed that a girl not only knew the song, but also knew all the words just like him, he felt compelled to stop her. Naturally most of the conversation was about Kanye, including Lindsay joking about him taking her to the upcoming concert! She gave him her number and after some awesome dates, Lindsay actually did go to that concert!
Fast forward just over 5 years to their wedding day! Every single detail was perfect! Their day was romantic, beautiful, and filled with blue skies and periwinkle flowers! :)
The ceremony took place at Jesse Lee United Methodist Church in Ridgefield, CT.
Chris and Lindsay ended the night with the song that started it all! I may or may not have been listening to it on repeat while writing this post! :)
Oh, and how could we forget to show off our cute selves?! That's-a-me-Cassi on the left! And on the right, a Chris sandwich! Lindsay, you look tinier than ever! :)
