Leia and Antwan

Written by , Posted in Engagement, Event, Love

Kids amaze me these days.  Seriously!  We met with Leia and her son a few months prior to the shoot to discuss details as well as icing on the cake- AND!  the way technology is integrated into children’s lives is amazing.  It was just like Natalia (Denisse and Armando’s daughter)- with the instantaneous connection to the touch screen. I am slightly green with envy, but then again- Legos, sideways ponytails, and Jelly shoes (you know… the simple things in life)

Speaking of shoes- did you see Leia’s?  And their outfits?  AWESOME.  And- we told the City of Chicago’s Park District to plant matching tulips of course.

Leia and Antwan met- well, at Leia’s work.  They chatted with what Antwan considered a friendly flirting level for a while- and proceeded to ask for Leia’s number.  Leia, being the excellent business woman, proceeded to give Antwan her business card, instead of- well- her personal number.  Not knowing the wiser.  Being a courteous customer, Antwan didn’t know what to make of this, so he proceeded to email Leia instead- which eventually sparked into Leia giving Antwan her real number, instead of her office. 😉

But still- to this day- Antwan claims that she was blowing him off. hahaha- not true in the least!

Leia and Antwan are getting married at the lovely and romantic Chateau Busche in Alsip, IL in just under 3 weeks.  And at this rate, the flowers are going to be amazing outside!! The chateau is situated on 40 acres of nature and gardens, which translates wonderfully into infinite photo opportunities. Excellent! Yay for green spring weddings!

I love the love in this shot.

Eeeek! Just look at her- OF COURSE he asked her for her real number- she’s gorgeous!
