Ok, who doesn’t like good surprises? When it comes to weddings, I have seen elopements and more intimate ceremonies on the rise for sure. What better way to have a memorable wedding than taking an intimate ceremony and making it a surprise for every one?! Very few people knew about this surprise wedding so I was excited to be in on the secret! And when I say very few, I mean not even Leah’s daughters knew until the morning of! Check out their faces when Leah told them what was happening that night as she was getting her hair and make-up done; classic.
We stopped at a park in Sioux Falls before we got to Falls Overlook Café for the party to take some beautiful photos to remember the day by. Leah also owns Envision Event Planning + Print Shop, so let me tell you not a single detail was missed even though it was a surprise (Don’t miss Abe’s shoes either!). From the beautiful signage and centerpieces to the food! So much amazing food was enjoyed throughout the entire night. We also ended the night by celebrating Mark’s birthday! Mark is Leah’s uncle and was also in on the secret as the surprise officiant. Check out his hilarious cake!
