Leslie and Mike | Fall Chapel Wedding

Weddings, CouplesAmanda MohinaniComment

If you've been following my blog for a few months, you've already met Leslie and Mike, and heard their story of love that started years and years ago!! Well, although they were married privately and quietly in May, that didn't stop them from planning the party of their dreams to celebrate their love with their closest family and friends!

I love it when couples approach their wedding day with an enormous amount of excitement, paired with a lovely sense of contentment for all the details in progress. I see this in just about every beautiful couple I am blessed to work with, and Leslie and Mike were definitely no exception! Their hospitality and care for their guests, as well as their pure joy in being with each other made for such a warm and welcoming day!

Leslie is the master planner and chief organizer of all the details. She LOVES planning events and parties and decorating, and this was the perfect combination of all of her skills! 

She's waited to put on a beautiful, white, wedding dress for years, and I was SO excited for her!! 

Mike thought she was just stunning, and he was absolutely right!

So sweet! 

When you find a tree with such gorgeous colors at the end of October, you better believe that you linger there for as long as you can! So pretty! 

Leslie did the majority of the details herself - every flower arrangement, table detail, sign, and paper good was all carefully selected by her expert eye. I just LOVE the bouquet she created! 

So much giggling! 

So sweet! 

Love the ring bearer's details! 

Reaffirming their vows to each other... 

And ready to party with their family and friends! 

Just LOVE all of this!

Mike grew up near this chapel in Iowa, and it was the perfect, intimate setting for their special day. 

Leslie and Mike, thank you so so much for allowing me to be a part of your marriage journey!! It's been so fun to hear all of the stories that have lead you to each other, and I'm so so thankful that God brought you to together (at last!). Enjoy this new season of your life!
