We’ve been looking forward to Leigh Anne and Patrick’s wedding for so long, and we think you’ll agree that this special day was worth the wait! They are the absolute sweetest people you will ever meet and so head over heels in love with each other!

The best way to tell their story is to actually borrow from Patrick’s sister, Natalie, who introduced them. As she told everyone during her toast, growing up with brothers, she always wondered what kind of women would become her sister-in-laws. And now she can’t be any more thrilled than to have her best friend, Leigh Anne, officially become a part of her family (to which Patrick said “Thanks for that!”).

Leigh Anne and her bridesmaids got ready at the gorgeous Westcott House. Leigh Anne’s purple heels were incredibly stylish, her jewelry elegant and tasteful, and her dress so incredibly beautiful. But our favorite detail was her grandmother’s garter! While she and her ladies were getting ready, Patrick and the guys were a few miles away. Patrick wanted a classic “James Bond” look and had a very elegant tuxedo with a bowtie and purple socks that matched Leigh Anne’s shoes.

They decided to do a first look at the Lightner Museum. As Patrick waited on a gorgeous stone bridge overlooking the koi pond, Leigh Anne slowly walked up behind him, finally tapping his shoulder for him to turn around. They both had a complete look of joy and happiness as they looked each other up and down. It was a perfect moment!

Traveling from North Carolina for their nuptials, they chose a wedding location that highlighted all the charm of The Oldest City. They held their wedding at the White Room on the rooftop overlooking the marina and the Bridge of Lions. The ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt, with many tears and smiles. As Leigh Anne and Patrick’s ceremony ended, a gorgeous rainbow appeared in the sky. Leigh Anne’s grandmother had passed away this year, so everyone said that the rainbow was a sign that her grandmother was smiling down upon Leigh Anne and her wedding. (Feel free to pause to get tissues!)

The reception was the perfect mixture of relaxation and party. When the night finally came to a close, Leigh Anne and Patrick boarded a carriage to take them for a ride around downtown St. Augustine and the thousands of white lights that were on display for the holidays. Luckily for us, they made a quick stop back at the Lightner Museum to do a few more evening photos with all of the twinkling lights (and some sparklers!).

Now that they’re back from their honeymoon, we’re so excited to share some of their wedding photos! I hope you’ll forgive us for posting a few more than usual, but we are big LA & Pat fans and it was such a gorgeous wedding! Leigh Anne and Patrick, you are a special couple and we wish you many long years of joy and happiness!
