Happy Couples

Nick and Julie were married at a vineyard alongside a handsome 128 year old barn. Their ceremony was as full of character and rich in narrative as the surroundings they chose for their day. Julie said "Leslie made our ceremony absolutely perfect. Numerous people have told us that it was the best wedding they've been to and that it was so "us."

Tess and Dave were married looking over beautiful Lake Monona. It was clear working with them that they were marrying their best friend. I truly enjoyed creating a ceremony in which they could express their level of emotional intelligence and commitment to one another. Tess said "We can't say enough good things about our wedding ceremony. We knew that we wanted something that was true to us as a couple yet still feel comfortable and traditional to our guests. We loved how personalized it was"

Jenna and Tony were married in a wing of the Overture Center as light and airy as an indoor ceremony could possibly be. They were a joy to work with and together we created a ceremony which was honest, beautiful, and was fun to have the honor of preforming.

Laura and Willy's ceremony, under an amazing centurion catalpa tree, was a celebration of love and family. Laura said "Leslie met with us early on and was open and accepting to helping us create what we had envisioned... she was able to take our thoughts and ramblings and turn it into something more incredible than I could have imagined."

Vishala and Christopher were married in the very lovely Gates of Heaven building on a fresh early spring day. Working closely together we created a ceremony which combined the most meaningful Hindu and Christian wedding rituals of their backgrounds. Christopher said "Thank you again for performing a beautiful ceremony for Vishala and I. Your presence was so stabilizing and so appreciated. We really couldn't have asked for a better celebrant."

Ellie and Ty were married in a warm, private ceremony with just their closest family in attendance (in one of my favorite buildings- The Capitol). Ellie said "We were extremely happy with Leslie's professionalism and caring spirit. She walked us through every step, allowing us to relax and enjoy the experience."
