        I met Leslie a few times to chat about her dream wedding.  As many brides figure out during the planning process, the strategy (or timeline) of a wedding along with the cost can sometimes make it nearly impossible to pull off.  They scrapped their first plan and decided on a safari themed “sendoff” party where they would invite all their family and friends to celebrate an upcoming ceremony they would have in Africa.
        Unfortunately, those plans also changed as Leslie was diagnosed with cancer the week of their sendoff.  What was supposed to be a party became a SURPRISE wedding – and their guests were so shocked and emotional!!! The day was unusually HOT for Iowa in late September, but once the sun set over the Mississippi river, it cooled down and the party really started!  An incredible African dance company from Chicago performed and it was mind-blowing.

        Although their plans changed a few times, I think their vision came to life in a really tasteful way!

        Congratulations Dan + Leslie!!!
