I am short on words to describe just how special LeAnn & Will’s wedding day was! From the moment we first met them, and later at their engagement session, they absolutely gushed about their dreams for this day. We knew from the get-go that these two were just as creative and passionate about their wedding plans as they were madly in love and excited to become husband & wife! And then, one Saturday in late September, they did it!! Every last detail about their wedding was completely beautiful and magical. I’ve never seen DIY done SO well!
They poured hours and hours of blood, sweat, tears, and sleepless nights into this day. For starters, they carved out a piece of prairie on LeAnn’s parents’ property for the ceremony site. They titled it their “field of dreams” and brought in beautiful salvaged church pews, lovely glass doors, and even refinished the gold/green dresser for its focal point. They also scored a roll of vintage wallpaper at an antique store and paired it with thrifted frames to create the coolest photo booth wall known to man! Oh, and did I mention that LeAnn’s mother designed & handmade not only her fantastic vintage lace gown, but also all of the bridesmaids’ sweaters + skirts!? Clearly creativity runs deep in this gene pool!! And two nights before their wedding day, LeAnn pulled an (almost) all-nighter to bake TWO DOZEN different pies for their reception. WOW. Just WoW!
So proud of these two for accomplishing their DIY dream-come-true of a wedding day! We felt tremendously honored to be there among their talented friends & family, and to document all of the amazing love & beauty surrounding them! Any couple who can work SO hard together, meshing their visions to create such a splendid day surely has what it takes to make it in their marriage journey. (: Congrats you two. Your wedding was a complete hall-of-fame Home Run.
