Real Wedding

LeeAnn + Chris Wedding | September 9th

How They Met

The Couple // In 2012 Chris and LeeAnn met in nursing school and quickly became best friends who spent all their time together. A trip to Chicago for LeeAnn’s birthday became a turning point in their relationship. 

As Chris says, “We went for a long weekend together and we honestly had the time of our lives. That's when I started to realize I might have stronger feelings for LeeAnn than as just my best friend.” 

Within a few months of the trip, Chris knew she was falling in love. And shortly after that LeeAnn started to realize she felt the same way. Chris confessed her feelings in a letter to LeeAnn and they both knew they had to give the relationship a try.

Their Wedding

The Couple // The brides wore unique yet complimentary gowns. LeeAnn chose a mermaid fit gown in a pale blush with a stunning ivory lace overlay, jeweled belt, and sweetheart neckline. Chris wore a white a-line gown with a softly layered skirt, jewel lined lace bodice with a lace cut-out back with button closures, and jeweled belt. 

Looking back, Chris and LeeAnn’s first suggestion is to hire a wedding coordinator and to not sweat the small stuff! 

“We worked with April Gladieux from Your Perfect Day and she made our day completely flawless!” 

With the help of expert wedding vendors, Chris and LeeAnn were able to enjoy their big day and focus on the love that brought them together. They remark, “Hearing how much love and support we had from all our family and friends was the one of the best parts”!
