Leslie & Nik | Wedding | Malvern, PA & Osenbach, France

Leslie and Nik's weddings were nothing short of incredible. From Leslie's succulent dress, to Nik's custom tailored suit, every small detail of thought was for the celebration of their love. Their celebrations of love were perfect reflections of who they are as individuals, and as a couple.

Every invitation had a four leave clover and dried flowers on it handpicked by Leslie, the yurt was a wedding gift they turned into a hookah lounge, all the table decorations were carefully placed and set up by the bride.

A few more jaw dropping details included: A living succulent bar, Leslie's handmade succulent dress she wore to the cocktail hour before the ceremony, the abundance of greenery all over the reception tent, and the boutonnieres with mushrooms. 

Needless to say, no detail was left uncared for or unthought of. This wedding was incredible, just like Nik and Leslie's love. Enjoy!

A large portion of Nik's family lives in Germany so a month after their PA wedding, Nik and Leslie invited all their family and closest friend's to gather in Osenbach, France for another ceremony. Due to the downpour of rain on their wedding day in May and the simple fact we were in the most charming town ever, Nik, Leslie and I snuck away before the ceremony in Osenbach for portraits.

July 4th | Lancaster, PA

It was a splendid weekend! There are lots of reasons for that and I am excited to post several blog post over the next few days but first is Friday evening.

We had so much fun having BOTH my sister's, their husbands, our nephew, my parents and Tiffani's in-laws (they are kinda my third set of parents :)) over for dessert first. We had strawberry shortcake at our place (my sister will be vlogging about that) and afterwards headed to First Friday to eat at the food trucks. Little did we know that Papaw (my dad) would buy Will the best $1 balloon ever! We had a ton of fun with it. :)
