Words can’t even describe how adorable Leanne and Joe are together! The love these two have for one another is so apparent in the images we received and we are just so happy for this wonderful newlywed couple. Their gorgeous wedding looked so perfect and we are so glad we can share their love story with the Mia Grace Bridal family.
“(Mia Grace was) AMAZING! Everyone was so wonderful and made the whole process so fun! :) You helped me find exactly what I was wanting!” -Leanne
Their Love Story
Leanne and Joe met through mutual friends so to speak! One of Joe’s best friends (Mike) and one of Leanne’s best friends (Crystal) are actually brother and sister! They were introduced to each other at a party, which led to a first date at Olive Garden only after realizing all the restaurants were closed on The Hill because it was a Sunday. The rest is basically history!
They had planned a vacation to the Dominican Republic (and he had convinced her that they would not be getting engaged while they were there. On the first morning, he woke her up extra early wanting to go down to the beach to watch the sunset. He snuck a scrapbook he had made down by one of the palm trees and Leanna found it. They began looking at all of the memories and on the last page it said, “Will You Marry Me?” He got down on one knee and began playing one of their favorite songs (Sunny & 75) while he said some sweet words. Leanne obviously said YES! They then got to spend a whole week together, enjoying their new engagement status!
A Dream Come True
On May 20th, Leanne and Joe tied the knot at the St. Cecilia Catholic Church followed by a stunning reception at Andre’s West in Fenton, Missouri! The lovely couple had a modern yet traditional and romantic wedding. Leanna looked so beautiful in her A-line gown from the Allure Romance Collection, which features a romantic lace bodice and a soft net tulle skirt! The satin belt accents the natural waistline and the illusion back is absolutely breathtaking. The lace on the bodice is covered in subtle sequins to give this gown a bit of shimmer and the boat illusion neckline provides a gorgeous, modest look! Leanne paired this fabulous dress with a beaded lace and rolled edge veil from Bel Aire Bridals to complete her phenomenal wedding day attire! Their wedding was created through the hard work from the following vendors:
Florist: S. Finch Florist
Photographer: Maggie Medema Photography
Videographer: Whole Street Productions
Band/DJ: Hollywood 5
Picture Accommodations: St. Charles City Fire
Thank you so much Leanne and Joe for allowing all of us at Mia Grace Bridal help make your wedding a dream come true!
