Lezlee and Sean’s Destination Wedding :: Marco Island, Florida//May 18, 2009

I’ve been looking forward to Lezlee and Sean’s wedding since right before Christmas! Lezlee found me when one of my images was published in Brides Magazine. From our first conversation her excitement (and her Minnesota accent!) were infectious.




Hello gorgeous!


Blue Steel.


Due to the timing of the ceremony, Lezlee and Sean chose to have a first look and see each other before their ceremony. I can’t recommend this enough! It makes for a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere and you get to see your groom alone (well, mostly!) for the first time on your wedding day. 


It wasn’t all fun and games though. We had a very serious problem. Wedding crashers!!







You know those grooms who hate to dance? The ones who do their first dance (sometimes grudgingly) and you never see them on the dance floor again the entire night? Sean was not that groom.


Maybe because he had a few of their signature drink? ;)


We had so much fun that Suzie and I were sad to leave at the end of the night! Lezlee, Sean, all your family and friends – THANK YOU! Thank you for welcoming us into your family, your wedding, your lives. Love you guys!
