I have known Leeann for years – she was a few years older than me, but we shared some friends in common and she’s also the cousin of one of my best buddies! So I was thrilled when she wanted us to photograph her post-Christmas wedding! We always love attending a good Arabic wedding cause they are super fun and packed with dancing. This one was no exception, with another cousin giving a solo belly dancing performance to start everything off (good job Mary Alice)! Leeann’s bouquet was one of my favorites of the year – a perfect winter grouping of pinecones and all kind of other beautiful things that I don’t know what they were. ;)
Her family has been “patiently” awaiting the arrival of more pictures, so I hope you guys enjoy! I will be posting these on Facebook soon and then you can tag yourself away on those!

This beautiful brooch belonged to Leeann’s grandmother:
Leeann’s dad married them which was a pretty special thing to witness:
Their escort “cards” were these super cute pinecones, and each table was named after one of their favorite fictitious couples. We sat with Susie at this table, “The Princess Bride” table of Wesley and Buttercup.
Leeann’s stepdad, Kenny, gave a very sweet and hilarious toast. He made mention of her bridal shower where people wrote down tidbits of info for the newlyweds, and one of them was that you could either “love your spouse because of their quirks, or in spite of their quirks”. He then went on to say he had a “short” list for Brian of Leeann’s quirks…..haha!
Let the belly dancing begin!
Thanks for an awesome night you two! Glad you had fun on your honeymoon!
