Wedding Wednesday: The Osborne Wedding

Will & Leah Osborne | June 22, 2013 | Photography by Tara Lilly Photography & Design

 Will and Leah met through mutual friends at Bridgewater College. Once they began dating, Leah says "it was the end for us both." Will and Leah took a cruise with his family; while they stopped at a photo booth to take photos, the photographer asked for them to kiss. As they turned to face each other, Will got down on one knee. Despite Leah's shock, she said yes and they proceeded to celebrate for the rest of the night with their family. For the wedding, the couple decided on a First Look and it's their favorite memory of the day. To be together in a moment of peace and quiet before the activity started up was a wonderful moment for them. Leah's plan for her day was for non-traditional, with peacock-inspired colors of teal, olive green and amber. Her A-line champagne gown with beaded bodice and satin sash with detachable lace top added to the gorgeous affair. Centerpieces included cream roses, green hydrangeas, succulents and peacock feathers around a candle in a lily bowl. They also had a dessert bar with brownie trifle shooters, lemon and lime bars, and chocolate chip cheese ball (to satisfy Leah's sweet tooth)! The couple went on a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas for their honeymoon to celebrate not only their nuptials, but to tie in the story of their engagement.
