Meet: Leslie & Brian

She’s the kind of girl that you marry.

That’s what he thought the first time he saw her. Not the kind of girl that you date, because dating just wouldn’t be enough. This is the kind of girl that you build a life with. Laugh with. Love. She’s the kind of girl you only dream of finding. A girl who’s at home in an Irish pub and cheers louder for the Red Sox than you do. She’s comfortable and familiar and beautiful on the inside and out. And everything about her… just fits.

He’s the kind of guy that you marry.

She knew it the first time she saw him. This is the kind of guy that you hold on to. Care for. Love. The kind of guy you only dream of finding. A guy who will take care of you when you’re sick and make you laugh til it hurts. He’s comfortable and familiar and in every way the real deal. And everything about him….just fits.

Meet: Leslie & Brian

Leslie was actually Justin’s roommate the year that we met. So she’s known us…as long as there’s been an us to speak of! And we met Brian for the first time when they came to our wedding a year and a half ago. We sat with them the next morning over brunch eating omelets and sipping mimosas. And even then we could see…this is the kind of couple that should be married!

And we’re just the lucky ones who will get to bet there to capture it this summer right outside of Bah-ston. Where there’s no Pah-kin on Hancock Street.

And guess what… we can’t wait!

So yea…..there was this magical field of blue flowers. Annnnnd scene. We pretty much didn’t move from there. Because let’s be honest….how many times in life are you handed a magical field of blue flowers? Once, twice maybe??

The super-handsome Brian

How beautiful is Leslie??

There was LOTS of laughing!

And Dancing!


There was also ear-biting….and snuggling!

I think this is my favorite shot of the day!

  24. Doug Greenlee

    The photos do a wonderful job of capturing the relationship between Leslie & Brian.

  25. Jean G

    Leslie and Brian, I like to two photos where Leslie has a screwed up look on her face. Reminds of one taken by her Grandpa Greenlee when she was little. Am I partial, yes, Grandma G.

  26. Bern

    I love the one where you are holding hands and looking at each other. The other two I adore are the last one and the one above that where the 2 of you are to the extreme right of the photo — awesome! That really captures Leslie’s personality for me.

  27. Sarah Walrath
