Ben & Jessie Lehnerer: Sunflowers, Sand-traps and a lot of Smiles
Date: June 13, 2015
Location: The Links at Whitmore Lake
Their love story: It’s the typical boy meets girl-next-door story but not the typical outcome. While Ben and Jessie met at college and dated, it wasn’t until 5 years later, and a few hundred miles away from home and school that they fell in love. After moving to NC they reconnected and the rest is as they say, history.
The Décor: The Lehnerers went with a little DIY country rustic fun. Think burlap, sunflowers, bright blues, mason jars and some awesome wood details, sanded and painted by the groom himself.
Song of choice: Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud
Some heart-melting lyrics:
And, darling, I will be loving you ’til we’re 70 And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23 And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways Maybe just the touch of a hand Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day And I just wanna tell you I am…
I feel pretty: The Glam Doctor Team. They did a wonderful job of getting all seven bridesmaids, mother of the bride, grandmother of the bride, flower girls and the bride pretty and perfect for the big day
After the big-day: The Lehnerers wasted no time and hopped aboard a plane to St. Martin the very next day to enjoy some sandy beaches and sun before moving together to South Carolina with their dog Stanley and big fluffy cat Mo.
Here’s some of my favorite shots of the day – just look at those smiles!
