Santa and Lenny first met each other on a blind date set up by her best friend Thuy and they have been together ever since!! Lenny set up a romantic surprise proposal earlier this year… on the beach at sunset, a candlelight picnic where he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife.
Together they planned a perfect wedding day where they would say their vows under a beautiful oak tree with the water as their backdrop. We did have a little rain but it stopped in time for them to say their vows outside on the water just as planned!
The Bay Preserve at Osprey is such a lovely place to get married! There is a historic house with amazing architecture and amazing natural light. Followed by a reception at the amazing Michaels on East wine cellar. The reception was romantic and elegant, with candle light everywhere, wine bottles from floor to ceiling and a wonderful dinner, dancing, toasts and cake cutting. Santa and Lenny did an amazing first dance for everyone, she even changed into her special dancing dress and then back to her wedding dress to dance with her dad.
It was an amazing day and I am so honored to have been a part of their special day!
Congratulations Santa and Lenny… Thank you for being so wonderful!!
