Maryl’s biggest pet peeve is when people try to talk to her while she is running on the treadmill at the gym; you know headphones in, music blasting, sweat dripping, dying to finish your last mile — we’ve all been there. But running (no pun intended, hehe 😀) into Maryl at the gym was becoming the highlight of Jonathan’s day. Every time he saw Maryl at the gym he would strike up a conversation with her mid-run since that was his only opportunity to see her. That is until he finally asked her if she wanted to get together outside of the gym.

This is one of our favorite films from 2019. It has it all: an epic proposal, touching interviews from friends and family, light-up shoes at the reception, drunk alter egos, some really great reception speeches, and heartwarming vows.

We’re super excited to share this story with you, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

We are LEAP Weddings. This is Maryl + Jonathan.
