Have you ever been out at dinner or sitting on a park bench or even sitting in a coffee shop when you saw a couple who caught your eye…a couple who makes everything look easy simply because they’re with one another? Leslie and Matt are that couple. Â Anyone who spends any amount of time with them will realize that they are perfectly matched.
Josh met the guys at the hotel where they were getting ready and then they walked to PPG Place for some groomsmen photographs. Handsomeness.
Men’s Warehouse ad, anyone? 😉
Then Danielle and Leslie headed over for Leslie’s and Matt’s first look. They were both so ecstatic and emotional. It was a joy to photograph.
The first look allowed us lots of time before the ceremony for lovely, happy, fresh make-up and fresh hair photos AND relaxed family photos. Win. 🙂
Leslie snagged this stunning bouquet on Etsy.com. It fit the day’s BLING theme spectacularly.
The image below was the super sneak peek on our Facebook page, and it got over 100 likes. Thanks, Everyone! 🙂
Mr. Adorable with all of the ladies in the limo. Too cute.
The wedding ceremony took place at Phipps Conservatory. It is an undeniably gorgeous location with a well-organized staff.
The officiant’s words were poignant, made everyone laugh, and made a few people cry. He said (and I’m paraphrasing) that Matt and Leslie should aim to out-love one another, out-give one another, out-kiss one another, out-sacrifice for one another, out-sex one another, and out-cherish one another.
By the power vested in me by my wedding blog, I now pronounce you husband and wife on the Internet! 🙂
Everyone migrated to another beautiful room in the Conservatory where there was a champagne toast. Leslie and Matt truly love and cherish their family members and friends. They could not thank them enough that day.
Their intimate, cozy reception took place at Pavilion X. It’s a historic building with exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and pillars. Totally fit the occasion.
The maid of honor toast was funny, touching, and, well, perfect.
Matt’s brother made us all cry.
…including his mom. It was her birthday, and everyone sang to her.
Their first dance was a choreographed number.
Their guests had an absolute blast all night.

Leslie and Matt- you two are lovely individually and even lovelier together.
