Stephanie & Jonathan | Leonard’s Palazzo | 7.14.18

Stephanie & Jonathan had a day that most couples dream of. It was such a beautiful & luxurious wedding. All that wedding planning and amazing attention to details really paid off! This wedding was extra special for us as the last time Jesse was at Leonard’s was for our own wedding :). He was so excited to go back and really do an over the top job for Steph & Jon. Also, I should throw out there that they are our cousins…so also makes it even more special!!

Starting off this blog with the rings. This was actually the last shot that Jesse took for the wedding as he had to do it a completely different day (ring was just a tad too tight on Jon & he couldn’t get it off!! LOL)!

**Make sure to check out the BTS of how Jesse accomplished this ring shot below!

Going right into the bride prep!

Amazing shoes by Badgley Mischka. Jesse lit the background using his MagMod system.
