Leslie & Martin. Wedding.

There’s something about the way they look at each other. The way Leslie’s eyes light up when Martin is near…the way Martin’s dimples appear on his cheeks as he talks about Leslie. They look at each other with such sincere trust, deep love & commitment. They look at each other as if to say, “I’ve been kissing you since High School & I still have the butterflies!” It is obvious that Martin & Leslie are a good fit & that their love will truly stand the test of time. They have seen each other grow, been each other’s rock through hard times & been the biggest cheerleader when the other needed it the most.

Leslie & Martin were married last month at the gorgeous St.Paul’s Cathedral in San Francisco. Their wedding was personal, touching & incredibly beautiful. Leslie & Martin had written love letters to one another that were simply mirrors of the other’s. Their letters spoke of their memory of meeting in High School, the joy they’ve felt as parents & their love & appreciation for each other. Tears rolled down both Leslie & Martin’s faces during the ceremony & a dry eye was hard to find among the guests of their wedding. That evening, friends & family gathered to celebrate Leslie & Martin’s new life together. And just like the first time Leslie & Martin met, the DJ pumped up the music & they danced the night away & spent the night in each other’s arms. Enjoy some pictures at the Palace of Fine Arts as well.

Leslie & Martin, I hope you know that I think the world of you. You are simply the most sincere people I know & I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to get to know you better. Thank you for ¬†letting me document your special day-I am so lucky to have such awesome clients like you! Here’s to your new life together…without a doubt it will be beautiful! xoxo…marielle.
