It’s pretty rare for me to know of a couple from the first date to the wedding day, but this was true for Scott and Leanne, who were married on an mid-August day at Wellers in Saline with a reception in the River Raisin Room. Scott and I were once coworkers, and being close in age and doing literally the same job, we became friends. About one week before I met Josh, Scott met Leanne, so I was able to follow their romance from the very beginning. I hadn’t even met her and I knew Leanne must be awesome because before he knew it, Leanne had moved from East Lansing to West Lafayette, Indiana for a job and Scott had bought a newer car to drive down to see her frequently on weekends.
Time moved on, Leanne moved back to Michigan, they moved in together, and soon enough, Scott was talking about proposing and buying a ring. And in the summer of 2017, he popped the question with a pizza!
Needless to say, this wedding was special for me because I had heard so much about Leanne and hadn’t ever met her until we started planning photography for their day. Getting to know her through the process was delightful and I could see why these two go so well together. Their vows to each other were such a testament to their strong relationship, with a few jokes about baseball and sports thrown in (Scott plays vintage baseball as a hobby and is into sports).
Wellers in Saline was a perfect setting for photos (please someone take me back there), especially in August where everything was green. The day of the wedding, we were expecting rain to push us inside for the ceremony, but the rain held off in the afternoon and the sun shined! It didn’t start to rain until we had finished couples portraits and were ready to walk into the reception. What luck!
At the reception, we had not only colorful and fun speeches from the bridal party and parents of the couple, but also probably one of the best dance parties I’ve ever seen. Everyone was up and moving…I don’t think the floor was empty the whole time I was there.
I’m so glad I was able to be a part of this day and wish Scott & Leanne the best in their marriage!
