Leslie and Chris are married! YAY! These two first met back in 2012 at the exact same place where they got married! They met at an event called Poker Run and Chris' parents home was stop #2 of the run. As soon as they saw each other, they were stricken and for the rest of the day stayed near each other. They kept in contact for years but both of them were too nervous to ask the other one on a date! Fast forward to 2018 and Chris finally asked Leslie out and they went on their first date (which lasted 16 hours) and they knew that they were meant for each other and the rest is history! Fast forward a couple years and Leslie was on her way home and was talking to her mom on the phone and her mom said "is that man ever going to ask you to marry him?". When Leslie got home she told Chris and they joked about it and Chris reached in his pocket like he was reaching for a ring and Leslie said "yeah right" and he pulled out his car keys. They both laughed and Leslie jokingly hung her head dissapointed. When she looked back up, she saw Chris on one knee with an engagement ring!!!! She obviously said yes!
Since Chris and Leslie both met on Lake Lemon and have spent many fun times there, they knew it would be the perfect place for them to tie the knot! They affectionately call their wedding theme "Love on Lake Lemon"! They wanted to have a small wedding with just their family. They held their ceremony down by the water and Leslie's uncle officiated. For their reception, they didn't want the big wedding reception but wanted a nice dinner where they could celebrate with all of their family. They did still want to do a first dance though so after the ceremony, they boarded a pontoon boat and had their first dance out on the water! They filled their wedding with purple, teal, and gold colors and lots of fun and laughter!
Enjoy a few of my favorite images from their wedding below!
