Our #ljmrealbride Leslie had the romantic & classic wedding of our dreams! Located at the Westin Great Southern Columbus, the wedding day was absolutely stunning.
Leslie & Joel met online. Leslie had joined OKCupid as a joke, not having any idea that was how she would meet her future husband!
“Joel knew that I am a fairly private and introverted person. Therefore, he knew I did not want an extravagant proposal. I had mentioned to him I wanted it to be just the two of us. He took me to the classic dinner and a movie and had my girlfriends decorate the house while we were out. When I opened the front door our house was decorated head to toe with photos of us. 3 dozen roses, balloons, candles everywhere, champagne and the ring at the ready!”
Leslie wore a stunning Watters ball gown with a beautiful Paris by Debra Moreland veil adorned with crystals & pearls.
“One of my girlfriends had a great experience at LJM. When I was there for her dress shopping, I was blown away by the selection at the store and the knowledge of the stylists. I also really appreciated how LJM catered to women of all sizes. One of my favorite parts about my LJM experience was as a plus size bride, I never had to worry about anything. The stylists made sure I could try on anything I wanted and my size was never an issue.”
2020 was an uncertain time for brides, but luckily Leslie & Joel were able to safely have their small, intimate summer wedding. From a non traditional guest book with new pens for every guest, to alternative entertainment [table games, caricature artist, cards at tables, etc] they thought of everything to keep their guests socially distanced & safe!
“We had the most amazing day. I absolutely loved our ceremony, my uncle was our officiant and we wrote our own vows. The ceremony was so personal and was such a special moment to share with our family and friends. I also loved our room reveal, our planner and other vendors did a wonderful job bringing our vision to life!”
