Leslie and Peter met through mutual friends while attending dental school in Boston, Mass. After nearly three years of dating, Peter planned a special lunch at The Phoenician Resort with Leslie and his family flying in from around the country. Before the lunch, Leslie’s mom convinced the group to take photos outside by the waterfall. In between pictures, Peter got down on one knee and proposed. Leslie was completely surprised and immediately said yes!
With the help of their wedding planner, Tasha Miller, the couple’s vision for a fun and classic fall wedding was brought to life. Leslie and Peter chose to do a private first look before the ceremony. “Spending those few moments together, alone in the garden,” Leslie said was the highlight of the day. The sun set as the couple exchanged vows in front of their friends and family. The day was captured by Ben & Kelly Photography.
The reception was a complete blast for the couple and their guests. Leslie says she treasured the unique speech her father gave. “I always knew he was a great public speaker, but his speech was so heartfelt and entertaining. Everyone was cracking up.” After that, the guests hit the dance floor to get the party in full swing.
