Leigh Ann & Ben | 718 Venue Wedding

This snowy, wintry day calls for a warm winter wedding full of emerald greens, faux furs, and greenery, don’t you think?

Back in December, I got an email from Meg Flores of Happy To Be Events about an urgent wedding request due to a family emergency. I was in Colorado at the time, but after hearing their story, I immediately knew I had to hep however I could.

You see, Leigh Ann’s father didn’t have a lot of time left. He was passing away from terminal brain cancer. Leigh Ann and Ben wanted to get married before he passed. Meg did an incredible job of planning this small wedding/elopement in just SIX DAYS. And let me tell you, these photos don’t look like it was planned in less than a week. They are gorgeous.

Meg and Leigh Ann just wanted one invitation. Something that matched the wedding and wouldn’t take too long to design or update. So I sent them over a few options of already designed pieces that we could just update with their information. The tricky part here was that I was in Colorado and not in Virginia. But after a few phone calls and emails to Meg to walk her through printing one sheet of invitations on her own, I’d say she pulled it off completely! She truly worked some magic for this entire wedding.

I was so honored to be just a small part of this beautiful wedding that was full of so much love.
