Fred Caldwell, Lindsey’s father, officiated the outdoor ceremony under an arch of bright pink, orange, fuchsia, and gold roses, ranunculus blooms, peonies, and tropical plants and a bright Texas sun. Lindsey and Michael, both of Houston, wanted their special day to celebrate family, friends, and their love for Christ.
