The first thing you have to know about Leilani and Brian: they are two of the most beautiful souls I have ever met. They are both working artists, activists, kind, caring, and just plain approachable people. From the first email, to the last hug when Jon and I left after documenting their Old St. Mary’s Chapel wedding, my heart was full of admiration and appreciation for them both.
Leilani is an accomplished artist, seriously her work is amazing! And Brian is a art designer on some pretty well known video game you may have actually played. They are such a powerful couple, both artistically and spiritually. Self-proclaimed twin-flames, soul-mates, and best friends, they slay individually and collectively in the most amazing way possible. And did I mention gorgeous too? I mean, Brian’s hair alone is enough to drive women crazy and then you have his beautiful bride with that “I want to stab you in the eye” brand of beauty that would make anyone jealous. Except when you meet them and realize what crazy cool caring people they really are. What a package!
They said their “I do’s” with an Old St. Mary’s Chapel wedding in Rocklin and partied the night away at the Whitney Oaks Golf Club. Because they are that kind of grounded with their family and their life. From a traditional church, to a country club, to an art exposition, to a raging San Francisco party, they just fit. And they make you fit with them. It’s an all-inclusive affair with these two and an experience I am truly grateful to have had.
