the story of
lesli + bryan
and engagement photography in Liberty
On their first date, they turned out to not have many options.
They ate at the only restaurant they could find open on a Monday in downtown Parkville, Missouri, then played a round of mini golf — which also was the only option available to them.
But having picked a perhaps less-than-ideal place to first meet face-to-face didn’t put a damper on things between them. He remembers less awkwardness than is typical on a first date. She remembers the buffalo chicken wrap he ordered, making her think he was her kind of guy.
They discussed youthful indiscretions and other things that don’t typically come up so early on, and by the end of the day, there wasn’t much question they’d be seeing each other again. Their second date — to dinner and a movie where he learned he loved her laugh — was just days later, despite the fact they lived a decent distance apart.
And despite all the options available to them in terms of potential mates (made all the more accessible with the help of Match.com), it was soon clear to Lesli Collins and Bryan Gosseen that this relationship was exactly the one they needed, both as a help through present hardships and as the spark for a bright future together.
They’ll mark their next milestone in that future next month, when they tie the knot April 30. Lesli and Bryan: I can’t wait to work with you again then!
