Leeza and Chad’s wedding day was one where Mother Nature wished them the best of luck. It is said that rain on your wedding day is good luck and there was definitely tons of it on their day. So much in fact, that during their couples portraits I was wading ankle deep in a puddle.
The Colliers were married at The First Baptist Church in Bayou La Batre located in south Mobile County. My grandparents have been members of that church long before I was born so it’s always special when I’m able to shoot or attend an event there. Their wedding was the first time I had seen a unity cross assembled during a ceremony and it was very special to watch. Their reception followed at The Oddfellows Lodge in Irvington. It isn’t a southern wedding without gumbo. Some of the best food you will ever eat is at a southern wedding with amazing cooks preparing delicious southern staples. As the reception was ending Leeza and Chad ran to their car through a pathway lined with their loved ones as they tossed bird seed in the air.
Congratulations!! I wish you both nothing but the best and many, many years of love and happiness.
