Escorted by her father, the bride wore a custom wedding gown designed by Amsale. The strapless bodice with a curved neckline gave the gown a modern touch while still remaining classic. Leah paired her bodice with a fuller skirt and elegant cathedral length train fully adorned with covered buttons. A beautiful couture bow positioned on the back of the gown finished the brides ensemble with dramatic flair. As a final touch, Leah wore a clean and classic cathedral length veil that framed her dress and train.
The bride carried a clutch of white O’Hara, white playa roses and white hydrangea, with a touch of seeded eucalyptus and white ranunculus. The bouquet was hand wrapped in antique white satin ribbon and included a special locket containing a picture of her late grandfather and the Rosary of her late great grandmother.

The bridesmaids dresses, also by Amsale, were made of faille in a beautiful shade of blush called “ballet”. The gowns were designed with a wide scoop neckline and finished with a formal length fit-to-flare trailing skirt. They carried a clutch similar to the bride’s bouquet containing white O’Hara, pink ranunculus, light peach versillia, white hydrangea, playa roses and seeded eucalyptus, with wax flowers and green hypericum tucked in. Each bouquet was finished off with a hand-wrapped pale blush ribbon.

The church was decorated with pew markers made of roses, hydrangea, white wax flowers and a variety of greenery lined the center aisle of the church while large coordinating swags hung on the front doors.
Prior to the ceremony, a rehearsal dinner, hosted by the groom’s parents, took place on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at Black’s Seafood and Oyster Bar.
After the ceremony, a formal sit-down dinner was held with the couples families and the wedding party in attendance at Magdalen Place in Abbeville. Decorations included beautiful floral centerpieces that sat upon the candlelit tables, each draped in floor length, off-white linens and surrounded by gold Chiavari chairs throughout the room. Elegant gold-rimmed china, with complimenting chargers and flatware beautifully configured each place setting. Hanging at the center of the room, above where the couple shared a first dance, was a very large custom designed wreath adorned with various flowers, branches and greenery. Clusters of illuminated pillar candles were also placed around the suspended wreath, providing a beautiful, romantic ambiance.
The brides’s cake was a three-tier, traditional almond flavor wedding cake with butter cream icing. Fresh flowers and greenery were added to each tier and a classic porcelain bride and groom on top was the finishing touch. The groom’s cake was a clever, reinvented design of a classic chocolate cookie cake, consisting of three five-cookie tiers, with chocolate filling between each, and topped off with chocolate covered strawberries.
The couple plan to take a week-long beach getaway until their original honeymoon plans can be rescheduled. They will reside in Abbeville, Louisiana.
