Leila and Matt’s Wedding

Posted in: Wedding

Always willing to go above and beyond for their friends and family,  Leila and Matt put together their dream wedding with hard-work and constant planning  in nine short months.

Leila and Matt met while out separately with their friends.  Whilst out for Mexican cuisine, their mutual friends brought their parties together for guacamole and margaritas. Then sparks flew!

A couple years later, Matt met Leila at the end of the aisle at her family’s church.  They proclaimed their love in front of their family and closest friends sealing their promise with a kiss.  Outside the church, their guests cheered and the bridal party was swept away to their beautiful reception at Cascade.

The reception hall was decorated in gold and pink.  Every place setting had a Leila and Matt candy bar, the cake glittered with gold, and the floor had Leila and Matt’s monogram projected upon it.  Hand in hand, Matt and Leila made their way down the grand staircase, proceeded into their first dance and embarked in their new life chapters as husband and wife.

Leila and Matt, thank you for being amazing people and great friends.  I am truly honored that you chose me to be a part of your wedding day.  You two are such a perfect match and I love that I was able to witness your love unfold on your wedding day. xoxo, Jackie
