Leslie & Ryan : Wedding Pt. 2

And we’re back! I can’t believe we’re blogging a November wedding… This is my (Chelsea) favorite season of the year, and it’s flying by faster than I can even comprehend. And we haven’t even started Christmas shopping yet. Ugh, don’t get me started.

The good news is, fall has brought so many amazing weddings our way, and there are still lots to come. Leslie & Ryan’s big day was definitely a chart-topper for our season, and if you didn’t see Part 1 on the blog yesterday, you owe it to your eyeballs to scroll on down and see those beautiful portraits & ceremony moments.

Today, we’re picking up just seconds after Mr. & Mrs. Martin were pronounced Man & Wife! The reception that followed was seamlessly produced by Heidibeth of Something Blue Weddings, and DJ’d perfectly by the incomparable Rod Baker. I’ve been saying it all week but it bears repeating… there’s NOTHING that makes a wedding more enjoyable to shoot than working with a fantastic team of professionals. Although they don’t make an appearance on this blog, I can’t leave out Adrianne & Aytek of TurquoiseVideo, who were so easy to work with. We know they were able to produce some awesome footage for our happy couple, and we can’t wait to see it (and work with them again)!

We’ve got lots of favorites to share, so let’s get to it!

I’m so glad we had this sunset time set aside for more portraits of this gorgeous couple… there’s just nothing better than the last light of the day!

Fall colors, lanterns, succulents, candles, wheat grass…. perfect.

GORGEOUS ombre cake!! Loved this!

All the dancing at OW Ranch was done under the stars, and it was perfect weather for it. The slight chill in the air was the perfect reason to fill up the dance floor and get everyone’s blood flowing!

And off they go on that Aruban honeymoon. 🙂

Leslie & Ryan, you were fantastic. We felt so honored to get to work with you, and we hope you love these images as much as we do. Congratulations on the start of your new life together!!
