Skyline Ranch Resort was the perfect setting for Leslie and Shawn’s wedding Saturday! Everything was decorated with navy blue and yellow rose accents which was nothing short of country elegance. The ceremony was held outdoors with a handmade arbor by the groom himself. The aisle was lined with yellow roses and baby’s breath. Leslie honored her cousin and grandmother who were present in spirit as Leslie married her best friend. Leslie’s handmade yellow rose bouquet made by her sister held a gold locket with photos of her grandmother and cousin Holly. These sentimental aspects make me emotional at weddings to know they are missing a loved on their special day.
Shawn and Leslie had the sweetest first look and shared a few minutes together before the ceremony. They wanted those few minutes to be intimate and moment for the two of them to reflect on the day. The day they were marry one another, their best friend and life partner. Leslie and Shawn included an anniversary box into their ceremony. The anniversary box holds a bottle of wine and two letters. The wine is to be enjoyed as they read the letters written to one another on their first anniversary. Those letters will be replaced with a new letters to be opened on their second anniversary as well as a new bottle of wine. This tradition will continue for years to come on every anniversary.
July 15th isn’t only their wedding anniversary but also both of their birthday’s! How neat is it to celebrate such exciting moments all on the same day. Before they cut the cake their friends and family sang them Happy Birthday and it was the sweetest. Leslie and Shawn absolutely perfect for one another. The way they make each other laugh with their silly faces and look at one another reflects true love.
