Real Weddings Follow-Up: Leslie and Randy
Posted by Shira Savada
Yesterday, you saw Leslie and Randy's destination wedding on a charming little island off the Maine coast. Well, today I'm back with more photos. I've put together a gallery of behind-the-scenes photos to show you how the wedding and reception all came together. When your wedding is a weekend-long event, there are many perks: Many helping hands and lots of one-on-one time with friends and family.
