Columbus Art Museum Wedding // Real Bride Leah

Columbus Art Museum Wedding | La Jeune Mariee

Our stunning #ljmrealbride Leah met her now-husband, Sean, on a dating app – a place where many modern love stories begin! After dating and falling in love, Sean told Leah that he was taking her on a surprise trip for the new year. All she knew is that they were headed somewhere tropical + to pack accordingly!

The trip began in Miami, followed by another surprise trip down to Key West, where Sean popped the question towards the end of the vacation, savoring a sweet moment between the two of them, where Leah said YES on their balcony overlooking a tropical view! We love a private proposal moment, and we’d be lying if we said this one didn’t have us a little misty-eyed.

After getting engaged, it came time for Leah to decide on where she would begin her wedding dress shopping journey. Our beautiful bride shares that she works in the fashion industry, so had her eye on a few of the designers that we carry, and also is friends with previous #ljmrealbrides who had memorable experiences shopping with us. After coming in to find her dream gown, Leah found the one – Carolina Herrera Penelope, a timeless fit + flare gown perfect for her Columbus Art Museum Wedding Day!

After hearing details about how she chose LJM + what she chose as her dream dress, we needed to know what her favorite part of the big day was! Leah shared that Sean, as we know, loves to plan surprises, and took time out of the ceremony to play a song on the piano + sing to our beautiful bride.

“Many of our guests didn’t know he was so musically talented and it was something I have never heard of a groom ever doing! It was so sweet and special”, shared Leah about this precious wedding day moment.
