Jeff Kolodny Photography, Inc. shares a couple with us today who have a story that’s a whirlwind of romance. Within a span of one week, this couple met, fell in love, and got engaged! On day one, Keiera Jones and Leonard Weaver met at her brother’s home in Atlanta, Georgia. Leonard, a football player of NFL fame, just happened to be collaborating on a new song with Keiera’s brother, Grammy-winning singer Canton Jones. When day three rolled around, Keiera answered a call from her mom moments after speaking with Leonard. During their conversation, Keiera got the shock of a lifetime when her mom suddenly stopped conversation and said the man Keiera was just talking to would be the person she married. Her mom had never heard of or met Leonard. By days four and five, the duo were inseparable. On day seven, Leonard dropped to one knee and proposed! Fast forward three years, and we arrive at the day of the exceptional couple’s ultra-glam wedding at their home in Florida. Inspired by Melissa River’s 1998 wedding, Keiera chose winter-themed elements for their day and an elegant “Old Hollywood” feel that was all brought to life beautifully by Rem.o.na’ Rey Events. The day opened with a tented ceremony accented with a draped ceiling and lucite chairs that looked like they were carved out of ice. Joel Patric Floral Events added lovely crystals and white hydrangea arrangements to the arbor where the bride and groom shared their vows. The jaw-dropping winter wonderland decor continued into the reception. In the main dining area of the tent, guests gasped as they spotted the purple uplighting and tables decked out in shimmering white details. The elegant lounge area and the monogrammed ice sculpture further elevated the dreamy feel of their evening. To top it all off, the sparkle-covered, 5-tier cake created by Elegant Temptations was an absolute showstopper! After a story that’s made for storybooks, a fairytale wedding was the perfect next step in their journey.
Congratulations, Keiera and Leonard on finding true love!
