When Leigh reached out to me and asked if I would photograph their wedding I was mostly in shock. You see… Leigh was one of our youth students and how in the world is it possible that she could be getting married??? She was in my mind still only 15 years old.
Time has a funny way of moving faster the older I get.
She is no longer 15 and in high school. She is in fact an amazing young woman. Who went off to college in Sioux Falls South Dakota and met an amazing young man named Luke who loves her like crazy.
The day was filled with so much joy! I don’t have many other words to describe it other then joy. As I go through the images that’s all I see. Big smiling faces.
Luke and Leigh had their wedding at the Leif Ericson YMCA Camp in Sioux Falls. Luke had worked there in the past and it was the perfect setting for their day! They were surrounded by the sweetest of friends who have walked with them through their story. Both together and separately. It was a beautiful day! It spoke so clearly to who they are as a couple.
My favorite part of the day was the vows. Luke and Leigh chose to write their own vows. I love when couples do this. Leigh had the entire church laughing and crying with hers. She promised to not only love Luke, honor and serve him but to also watch Star Wars with him until she could have intelligent conversations with him about it. That’s love for sure!
Thank you Luke and Leigh for having me. And so much congratulations on your wedding!
