Lesley and Tom are both pharmacists. They worked the night shift at different 24-our pharmacies and would call each other to check patient profiles or do stock checks on medications. Sometimes, they would have time to talk about more interesting things. After about six months of talking over the phone, Tom asked Lelsey out for dinner. They met for the first time when he picked her up for their first date in 2007 and have been inseparable ever since.
Lesley and Tom live in Phoenix, AZ but travel to Las Vegas frequently as it’s one of their favorite places to visit. Since most of their family and friends live in different states and would have to travel for their wedding anyways, the couple decided it would be much more fun to all meet in Las Vegas. Their purple spring wedding at the Bellagio was a unique and absolutely gorgeous celebration. We can’t stop swooning!
The ceremony was at Hyde Nightclub, which offers the best view of Bellagio’s famous fountains. Lesley and Tom said “I do” under a beautiful pergola with a flower chandelier above them. They sealed their union with a kiss just as the fountains went off behind them and Elvis’ “Viva Las Vegas” began to play. Talk about a wow factor wedding!
Afterwards, everyone headed over to the hotel’s Monet Ballroom for the reception. The couple’s parents, best man, and matron of honor all gave toasts.
Lesley also coordinated a special tribute for her mom and step-father. The two have been together for most of Lesley’s life and got married at the court house when Lesley was in junior high. Lesley had a big test that day so she wasn’t able to go, but she always felt that they deserved more. So, instead of doing a father/ daughter dance at her reception, Lesley made a speech for her parents and had them start off the night of dancing with their first dance. It was a touching tribute that not only had her parents in tears but also many of their guests.
After that, everyone danced and had a wonderful evening celebrating.
