Their story began years ago - before they even reached junior high. After being friends for years, Leslie remembers telling her friends, "I'm going to marry that man." Unfortunately, God had other plans, and Mike and Leslie both went their separate ways. 

Leslie tried to move on many times, but still always felt like Mike really was the one meant for her. Thirty-five years later, through some pretty crazy circumstances, God opened up every door for them to be reunited, and this time it was for good. Once again, Leslie has the man she always knew was the one for her. 

Leslie and Mike were officially married in May - after being engaged for just a short time. They decided to have a courthouse ceremony so that they could begin their new life together (only thirty-five years in the making) as soon as possible!  

They've decided to hold a special wedding celebration with their family in October,  and I'm thrilled to be able to be a part of their amazing journey. 

Even though they're already officially married, we went ahead and did the traditional "engagement" photos - and it was so fun!! Leslie and Mike are so sweet with each other and obviously enjoying married life! 

When I asked them what their favorite part about being married was, they both replied with the same answer: always being together. 

And now they never have to say goodbye again. 

Leslie and Mike, I am SO thrilled for where God has brought you two as a couple!! It's been so fun to get to know you and hear your story, and I can't wait to celebrate with you in October! Enjoy your married life as a new family. Much love!!
