We are very excited to share Gabrielle and Justin’s film with y’all today! We’re not only excited because we get to showcase this glamorous couple and their beautiful wedding at the Langham Chicago. This is also the *premiere* of our first Associate Experience film, one of five new package offerings we unveiled this spring!

We created the Associate Experience package for those couples who like our narrative documentary style but don’t want formal interviews. We get it, not everyone is comfortable getting interviewed on their wedding day!

With the Associate Experience, our team will get to know you, your partner and your preferences before the big day. You’ll receive a 7-10 minute documentary style film which tells a visual story of your day complete with great on-the-go sound bites, and selected audio from your ceremony and reception, all accompanied by music. This package allows you to celebrate your once-in-a-lifetime event with a film that captures the touching moments and big laughs of your day with a hint (okay, maybe a heap) of creativity. So to all you longtime LEAP fans, we’d love to hear your feedback!

Now back to gushing about Gabrielle and Justin.

A chance encounter in a parking lot in Atlanta is where Gabrielle and Justin’s story began. They were both heading to a comedy night at a local bar, when Justin saw Gabrielle. He said, “when she finally got out of the car with her feisty personality and contagious smile, it was over for me.”

They talked for hours that night and when they finally parted, they were already making plans to see each other again.

Justin followed his heart and it led him right to Gabrielle, and on August 17, 2019 they both said “I do” in front of their closest family and friends.

We are LEAP Weddings. This is Gabrielle + Justin.
