Lindsay Sacco first noticed Idalia Friedson when a mutual friend tagged her in a photo on Instagram. On a whim, Lindsay decided to give her a follow and start a conversation in the DMs. After a few months of Facetiming, texting and old-fashioned letters in the mail, it was clear to them that this was something serious. Lindsay booked a flight from Minnesota to see Idalia in Washington, D.C. “From that moment, we both knew it was a forever kind of love,” Lindsay says. The first two years of their relationship were spent long-distance, but when the pandemic hit, they decided to quarantine together. A year later, after dinner at their first-date spot and a sunset boat tour, Idalia popped the question to Lindsay in front of her favorite view of D.C. “There’s nothing like Abe Lincoln giving you a nod of approval while you’re professing your love to your soulmate,” she says. The Walker Art Center was the ideal spot for the couple, who love art, and was full of bold florals for their big day. Lindsay’s aunt and Idalia’s grandmother both played music while a live painter captured the scene at their ceremony. Custom-colored macarons served as favors at the end of the night as the couple thanked their guests for supporting their exceptional love story.
