Leslie and Mike are such warm and fun people who are so in love with each other and their wedding day was extraordinary in every way.
It was everything I hoped for and so much more!! 🙂
Leslie did a fantastic job organizing and coordinating the wedding down to the last detail.
The ceremony, the reception and the after party took place at Carltun on the Park, a fabulous location.
Leslie wore a gorgeous Alvina Valenta couture gown.
All the bridesmaids, Leslie’s parents and Elena, the flowergirl helped with buttoning her dress.

I love the mood of this photo.

Mike and Leslie just moments before the ceremony; they were so excited to get married!
Leslie made a customized postcard for each table with their favorite travel stories and photos.
I love this one – it really shows off their personalities.
I really love photographing the wedding cake and always look forward to it at every wedding.
This cake blew me away! It looked like a work of art. I kept going back to the table to photograph it.
The dance floor was packed all night. This dance started out as the Tarantela but somehow turned into the Hora. It was a lot of fun!
After the formal reception ended, the couple and their guests headed upstairs to the cigar lounge where cigars and hot dogs were passed out and a DJ was spinning the latest club hits. It was so awesome!!
Isn’t this a great portrait of Mike?
The last two shots of the day in the cigar lounge. I love these!!
Leslie and Mike – thank you for having me be part of your wonderful day!
