Things happen for a reason. In the fall of 2017 I was looking for a venue for a special event I organize in Lafayette, called Help Portrait, when I asked my friend Nick at the Rat Pak Venue if his new venue was available. He graciously let us use his space for our event in exchange for me taking photos of his renovation scheduled at the end of the year. And wow, what a transformation he made! Not only did he let us use his space, but he let me tag along in his booth at the Midwest Rentals Bridal Affair, as well as at his open house that night.
It was at RatPak that evening that I met Lindsey and George who were touring the newly renovated space, along with their parents. I had some canvases and albums out, and Lindsey stopped by and started talking to me about our work. I distinctly remember Lindsey saying, “I just love your color, it’s real.” It was that moment I knew we had to work with each other, no matter what, and my dream came true.
Working with these two has been so incredible. Their “real color” is love. Everything they do is love. They balance each other. They are both educators. He’s the planner, she’s the artist. He’s caring, she’s fun. He’s silly, she’s sweet. The words they use to describe each other… and everything I see is their love.
A humongous congratulations to you two! Your wedding day was incredible! Your families were so gracious. You two are amazing!
