Leanna & Adrian – A State Room Wedding

Hold onto your hats for this gorgeous wedding!!  When I booked Adrian and Leanna’s wedding last year, they lived 9000 miles away (give or take a few) and they booked me within one email.  I thought, these guys must be too good to be true…. then we met for coffee once they returned to the states and I realized these guys were the real deal.  Simply awesome.  It’s always so fun to watch a couple interact and talk about their wedding over coffee.  These guys were on the same page from the get-go and made me feel more like a friend and a guest, than a vendor.  Both are beautiful inside and out!  It was an absolute joy to be a part of their day, and I think you’ll be able to see why when you see their images.  I picked just a few of my favorites, but definitely check out the slideshow!

Leanna and the girls got ready in her maid-of-honor’s apartment (rockstar former client Manessa) and headed over to the public gardens for a first look.


All smiles, all the time.

How adorable is Manessa helping her get her shoes on?

The guys got ready at the couple’s loft and I was joined by Coco Boardman who did a fantastic job!  The following shots of the guys are courtesy of Coco!

Custom suit?  Of course.

Coco and I reconvened in the park where Adrian and Leanna settled in to see each other for the first time.  This is what was waiting for Adrian!

Seriously…. these two?  Could they be any cuter?

Calm and poise.  These two have heaps of it.  They’re just straight up fun to shoot.

Adrian’s brother helps him warm up to the camera a little!

One of my favorites from a little time we spent on Commonwealth Ave.

A few of my faves from the ceremony:

After the ceremony it was so nice to have a few quiet minutes with the couple before heading over to the State Room.  We made little stops here and there on our way.


LOVE this one 🙂


The State Room is always a beautiful spot – especially with clear skys.  The flowers were beautiful. 

Coco grabbed this shot of the couple waiting to be introduced.

A few from the first dance:

Toasts were seriously hysterical.


Superstar former couple Manessa and Phil who so kindly recommended me!

Yes… that is happening to you.

These two did not disappoint throughout the night.


A fitting end to a wonderful day.


Leanna and Adrian – thank you so much for allowing me to capture your wedding.  We had a blast with you!  Thanks to Coco Boardman as well for her expertise!
