Lynnae and Tim had both been in the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) for four years but didn’t meet until the last couple of months of senior year in 2013. Lynnae was a Battalion Commander that year and saw Tim sitting in her spot. She went over and sassily asked him who he thought he was! He was just as sassy back (that’s how you know it’s meant to be) and they’ve been best friends ever since.
By the time they went on an actual “official” date, they already knew each other very well. Regardless, Lynnae was absolutely head over heels for Tim, and he felt the same way. As their relationship grew over the years, they were certain they had found their forever person and one day, when Lynnae came home early, Tim was shuffling around upstairs. Lynnae walked up, feeling worn out from the day, and got the surprise of her life when he popped the question with a ring AND an edible arrangement—fellas, take note! They were both beaming from ear to ear.
On July 13, the two lovebirds tied the knot. There was no stress to the day as Lynnae and Tim were just excited to be together—nothing makes them happier or more comfortable. In a gorgeous dress from Alan Evans Bridal and a handsome suit from Halberstadt's, the couple celebrated with their friends and family the pure joy that comes with choosing their favorite person for the rest of their life.
Lynnae is completely awesome and Tim is one of the sweetest humans ever. The wedding party was hilarious and one of the groomsmen even looked like the biker version of Jake Gyllenhall! Tim joked around about not forgetting to make him a flower crown but little did he know the girls already had it in the plan.
Like our very own Nicole, Lynnae’s mom is Filipino and made lumpia (Filipino egg rolls) for the occasion. Nicole definitely felt like part of the family when she snuck her a few during dinner—it was very delicious and felt very exclusive!
It was also an honor for us to be one of the first few weddings at Blue Belle Event Center and we want to say a big CONGRATULATIONS to the owners!
Lynnae + Tim,
You will always hold a special place in our hearts. We had a blast with you both, your wedding party, and your family! Thank you for making us feel like we were truly a part of your day. We are honored to have documented such beautiful people, inside and out, and such an inspirational love. We are cheering for your marriage every day!
