How did you meet?
We met at Six Flags Astroworld, in Houston, TX. He was the magician in the show and I was a dancer.
How long have you been together?
We have been together for 9 years.
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
The official engagement was July 30th. It was at a Greek Restaurant, and he told me we had to stop and eat on the way to a show. We get there, and I soon as we get seated a fight breaks out between a young couple and a wine glass goes flying across the room; I’m thinking this is great dinner and a show! Well as it was time to leave, Les takes out his phone and says relax its just my phone (there’s a long story to that to sum it up I once thought his cell phone was a ring box and got excited) so i say hahaha your soooooo funny. Then he says if it were a ring it would look like this, and my face drops. He then gets on BOTH knees and asked me if I would marry him, and I said YES!!!!!
What are some of the activities you enjoy doing together as a couple?
We love to snuggle on the couch with our boys (slinky and domino) and watch TV or A movie.
Why did you choose the Biltmore Estate and Asheville as your wedding location?
We just fell in love with the town. Les performed at a boat show there and told me that we have to get married there so I came to check it out for my self and he was right. We found out about the Biltmore, and as soon as you pull up to those gates its a fairytale!!!!
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
When it comes to the wedding we are most excited about getting lost in the moment in the “HOLY CRAP this is REAL!!!”
What do you love about each other?
Lorie: What I love about Leslie is that he is truly a southern gentleman, he is so funny, so kind, so affectionate, so loving and absolutely charming.
Leslie: What I love about Lorie is her caring warmth, her smarts, her hotness, her being the better half of me.
Anything else you want people to know?
We joke and say that everyday together feels like a play date and every night a slumber party with your best friend so we are looking forward to a life time of slumber parties and play dates.
