Real Wedding: Jared and LeAnn

Feb 23 2011

Full of beautiful and inspiring details, Jared and LeAnn were married on September 25, 2010~ a lovely Ohio day where family and friends gathered to witness their commitment and share in their celebration. And with Audrey Hepburn-esque appeal and grace, LeAnn was an exquisite bride. By the look on Jared’s face, as he watched her walk down the aisle, he thought so too!

There is so much to love about this wedding~ from the warmth of the color scheme to the bouquet and all the particulars that define and make this wedding unique. Katie of Katie Woodring Photography (Covington, KY) did an exceptional job of capturing the details in such an artful and elegant way. *Enjoy*

Highlights of the day – I had so many highlights… Having fun getting ready with my bridesmaids while having the anticipation of seeing Jared…. The doors opening to walk down the aisle … every moment of the ceremony…  Seeing  everything I had planned come to life including: flowers, bouquets, wedding cake, live music … Having fun taking pictures after the ceremony and before reception with our family, bridal party… and us!  … Listening to the Jazz Band while eating the delicious meal at the reception …  Getting cake smashed in my face and spending 5 minutes getting the icing out of my nose … Letting lose and celebrating with all our friends and family at the reception!

Advice you’re glad you took – Take moments to just stop what I am doing … to look around and to adsorb everything. The day goes by so quickly and this advice helped me enjoy every point of the day~ from waking up at 6:30am to getting ready…  to leaving the reception at the end of the night … to starting our honeymoon!
Advice you wished you took – Eat early in the day as soon as you get up because if you don’t, things get busy and you forget to eat!!
Advice you’d like to give – The same advice I took.  Take time to breath and adsorb the moments of the day!!  This helps you relax and not regret wishing you had “more time”.
Best part of the whole wedding day – Exchanging vows and taking communion together.  We wrote our own vows, and those moments reminded why we made the decision to unite in marriage in front of our friends and family and before God.
