We absolutely love when two worlds collide. Meet Southern bride Lindsey and her Samoan groom, Rich, who had a beautiful fusion wedding at Third Presbyterian Church and reception at Regions Field, both in downtown Birmingham.
The two met while judging an Iron Tribe competition as Lindsey’s dad was competing. After the competition, Lindsey’s dad invited several coaches over to their home to celebrate. Lindsey and Rich spent majority of the party getting to know each other, which, in a few years, is where their first-look on their wedding day would take place.
Lindsey and her bridesmaids started the morning at her family’s home in Highland Lakes to get ready for the wedding. One of many things we loved from Lindsey’s day was her memorable first look with her bridesmaids after she was dressed in her breathtaking Martina Liana wedding gown from Ivory and White in Mountain Brook. The girls reaction’s were too cute and we knew Lindsey loved it too! Rich joined Lindsey for their first look and they stood back-to-back holding hands while they prayed over each other. It was such a personal, emotional memory. We then spent some time taking photos around beautiful downtown Birmingham before heading to the church for their intimate wedding ceremony.
After getting to know Lindsey & Rich over the last few months and at their engagement session, we knew their wedding one be one to remember. With Rich growing up in California and having a Samoan family, we couldn’t wait to for the fun traditions to take place on their wedding day. During the reception at Regions Field, Lindsey and Rich slipped away to get ready for their traditional Samoan wedding dance called The Taualuga. Their family and friends spent the night dancing and celebrating with them as they started their new journey as husband and wife.
We, of course, would love to thank the wedding pros who made this wedding day flawles. Rachael at Two Hearts Weddings kept the day moving smoothly and perfectly. We couldn’t have done it without you!
