Leslie and Mike have one of my favorite love stories that I have heard to date. This wedding is 42 years in the making. Leslie met Mike in 6th grade. They lived on the same street and played neighborhood games together with other neighborhood kids. In 7th grade, Mike bought Leslie a box of chocolates for Valentine's Day. (I think, even then, he must have known he was buying chocolates for his wife.) Somewhere along the way, they lost touch. But 42 years and a simple Facebook message later, Leslie and Mike are finally married. We started the day taking photos at the Mission Nombre de Dios right across the street from the Raintree Restaurant with the entire family. It was the perfect way to begin the day - laughter, jokes, and a beautiful family coming together.
The ceremony and reception were held at the Raintree Restaurant in St. Augustine. A pretty gazebo provided the backdrop to their vows.
Congratulations, Leslie & Mike! I am so blessed to have been a part of your gorgeous day!
