Corrine + Lenny
How did you two meet?
The traditional love story… we met at a bar! Celebrating a mutual friend’s birthday out and seemed to hit it off but never exchanged numbers. I reached out to a friend to get Lenny’s number and sent him a text asking if he would be interested in grabbing beers and he was. As we dated, we learned that we had been at the same events & parties before but never met. Lenny made me wait until after football season to be “official”- lucky for him I like football and even luckier for him, his Seahawks won the Superbowl that year. Almost 6 years later, we still hang out at bars with those same crazy group of friends and watch lots of sports.*
Why did you choose the venue you did?
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! We loved the history behind it and all the original details, like the hand carved wood in the ballroom-which was the courtroom and the gold elevator, marble, terrazzo elements that have lasted over a century, but it also has modern touches in the decorations. Also- the stair case!!!!! In addition, it was great to have it have almost everything is one spot. Didn’t have to worry about finding places for guests to stay, transportation from hotel to venue- its been super easy. Brigid at Le Meridien has been awesome.*
Your details? Why did you choose them, what was your thought process?
I wanted to have a touch of blue as most brides have but wanted to to be visible that love the earrings when I saw them on Etsy. They same for the hair pins- simple and classic! My perfume is the same bottle that Lenny gave me for our first Christmas together!!!*
Any advice for other couples getting married?!
Choose things that make you happy. I didn’t care about flowers so it wasn’t something I stressed over too much. Everyone is going to have an opinion- but at the end of the day it really is what the couple wants- case closed!*
How has it been (so far) having me as your photographer?
FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!! Love that you are down to earth and it takes the pressure of what can be stiff and stressful away. Telling Lenny to whisper something dirty in my ear gave us probably one of my favorite pictures (so far- I am sure I will a a ton more favorite after the wedding)!! ♥
