We have patiently waited for September 8, 2018 for what seemed like forever. We met Travis at a bridal fair that Leah and us both happened to have a booth at, she sent him around to get information from vendors while she spoke to potential brides about her photography business. A few weeks later we met Leah and Travis at Spencer’s and before we knew it she was one of our first KB brides. We instantly fell in love with their personalities, their young love, and their hearts that chase after the Lord. If you have had the privilege to meet them, then you understand. Both Travis and Leah have this undeniable warm personality that when you are graced with their presences you know you’re loved, taken care of, and surrounded by friends. We haven’t known them for years; just a short blissful 7 months and they even treated us like family.
The week of was a constant look at the weather, hoping for the best, but the odds were stacked against us. Blair and I were saddened for Leah that her dream of getting married in ‘The Cove’ was slipping away. In the end we did move the ceremony to another location that was little closer to the reception space just incase a pop up shower would force us to make the flip and transform the reception barn into a beautiful ceremony space. Luckily, truly by the grace of God, the rain withheld, and Leah and Travis got to explore and enjoy every acre of Cason’s Cove. They had an outside ceremony and got to experience the venue for it’s true beauty the inside/outside feel that Gabby at Çason’s Cove has created. The day was truly perfect; it is hard to write the emotions that occurred throughout the day, they were raw and real. I am a romantic where I try and spy during the first look, and always take a moment while running around to watch the ceremony, to me those little moments make the work all worth it. I watched their first look through a crack in a wooden window, I couldn’t see Leah and Travis’s face, and the only person I could see was the photographer, Kirstie Whitaker. I patiently waiting for her response across her face showing me how sweet the moment was. To my surprise, there was no smile, just tears. Tears fell from her face, and even though I couldn’t see the bride and groom, they fell from mine too. I knew that moment was moving.
Leah and Travis were surrounded by 18 closest friends (who happen to also be the most musically talented bridal party), the cutest ushers in Bowling Green, and the ring bearers and a flower girl that force a huge smile across your face. They were surrounded by awesome people and covered in prayer all day long. I wish I could bring all of our readers back to that day, and relive it over and over to show them what we all got to be apart of. Leah and Travis chose the greatest vendors that were an absolute dream to work with. For KB, it was a lot of work to decorate a reception space for 350 people, do all the florals for a large bridal party, and coordinate the day of, but I would serve this couple everyday if I could.
To Leah and Travis,
We can’t thank you two enough for allowing us to be your sounding board these past 7 months, for trusting KB, and for loving us. We pray that your newlywed phase never ends, and that the young love we were graced with at Spencer’s never stops growing. We pray for your futures and we hope we cross paths again in the wedding world. Best of luck! We love you two.
