“Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hands on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girls for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.” -Albert Einstein
It was written in their program as well as read during the ceremony, and I think it’s the perfect quote for Leslie and Ben. The Clifton Inn was filled with their friends and family, traveling from afar to be with them on their big day. Leslie is from Texas and Ben is from Virginia and they chose to incorporate their home states into the details of the wedding. I love Leslie’s cowboy boots and Texas garter. They also personalized corn hole boards with the states on opposing boards!
The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Judy from Bristles’s Hair Salon did an amazing job with Leslie’s hair and makeup. Leslie looked stunning in her dress and Ben was so excited to see her as she walked down the aisle with both her Mom and Dad (which I love)! Once they were married, Leslie and Ben were ready to celebrate! The wedding reception was filled with so many fun surprises (which I will tell you about in Part 2). For now, have a look at the first half of Leslie and Ben’s amazing day!
Leslie’s mom made personalized recipe books as wedding favors for all the guests! They were filled with favorite recipes from family and friends and it was a complete surprise to Leslie and Ben! We were also pleasantly surprised to see one of our pictures from their engagement session on the front cover!
Virginia vs. Texas!
There wasn’t a dull moment with this wedding party!
