How did you meet each other?
We met because Leah moved to Orlando for grad school and she was moving into the
apartment that Adrian was moving out of. We went dancing and have been together ever
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
We got engaged Oct 18, 2008. Adrian had been out playing basketball & called me
on his way home to ask me if I wanted to go with him to Leu Gardens to walk around since
I had never been and it was finally starting to cool down. I said sure & he came over to pick
me up & we headed over. He was acting weird the whole way, texting on his phone, etc. but
I just figured he was preoccupied. We started walking through the gardens and he eventually
guided me towards the butterfly garden. As we got to an archway, I noticed a little basket
hanging on ribbon from it. I almost thought we had stumbled on a part of the wedding that
was taking place in the rose garden. But then I noticed the ring box. & he turned to me, got
down on his knee, & said “God could never have given me a better woman than you… will
you marry me?” Of course I said yes and cried and we hugged and kissed. And then I found
out that his best friend & wife had been taking pictures of us the entire time.
What do you two do for a living?
Adrian is an automotive painter for a body shop that specializes in exotic cars.
Leah is an admin for an exotic car dealership while she works on her doctorate in Media
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
We’re both car lovers so we like to go to local car shows together. We also love food so we
love to find new restaurants or specialty food places.
Why did you choose the Biltmore Estate as your wedding location?
We chose Biltmore because Leah grew up in Pennsylvania and Adrian grew up in
Florida so there was no way for us to pick one place or the other without essentially
choosing one side over the other. We also picked it because it was absolutely beautiful and
we hoped that our family & friends would enjoy the area as much as we have.
What do you love about each other?
Leah: What I love about Adrian is… the way he loves me and believes in me.
No one has ever pushed me harder to be the best I could be like he has and no one
has ever supported me the way he does every day.
Adrian: What I love about Leah is… her mind and ambition. She could do
anything she wanted to and I think she will do great things. I also love the way our
personalities fit- everything complements each other.
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
We are excited to see each other that day and finally be man and wife. We are also
very excited about our honeymoon in Fiji because we haven’t been able to take a vacation
during our relationship and we decided to splurge on ourselves for this one special trip.
