Leslie and Mark were married on May 14, 2016 with their ceremony and reception at the Rose Room in Boise. Many of the couples I get the opportunity to work with are from out of town, so we don't get the chance to meet in person. While this was the case with Leslie and Mark, they both were at ease with me right away. I was welcomed with a warm sweet smile from Leslie, who was seemingly relaxed and ready for this profound day for her and Mark. It was a joy to walk into their getting ready environment with the hustle and bustle of bridesmaids dressing, the final touches being applied to hair and make-up, and the laughter from the boys downstairs as they played a game of pool (because that's what dudes do-- forget getting ready until the last minute). The bridesmaids were all done up in their gorgeous navy blue dresses, each with their own strap creation and they all welcomed me into the commotion. I ventured downstairs to capture the pool table merriment and Mark seemed just as at ease as Leslie. The whole group was welcoming, playful and fun you would never guess we had just met.
