Kasi & Leland’s Courtyard at Lake Lucerne – Captured by Dawn

Courtyard at Lake Lucerne Wedding

Kasi and Leland’s Courtyard at Lake Lucerne wedding in Orlando, Florida was incredibly magical.  The day was filled with the love of family and friends at the historic venue!

How They Met

Kasi and Leland met through their mutual friend Anthony in Fall 2013. Anthony was Kasi’s classmate at UCF while she was working on her Master’s degree. Anthony invited Kasi and her friend to hang out with him and his friends one evening. One of those friends happened to be Leland, who was also Anthony’s roommate. The couple enjoyed their time out with one another and after a few more group hangouts, the two decided to start dating. Little did they know they were destined to be one another’s forever. The couple would go on to celebrate many milestones together, including graduations and friend’s marriages as well as explore many new places.

The Proposal

Five years later on November, 30th 2018 (the couple’s 5 year dating anniversary), Leland got down on one knee and asked Kasi to be his wife. The big moment happened at Hillstone Restaurant in Winter Park, one of the couple’s favorite places to go on special occasions. They were seated in an intimate location by a window overlooking the lake. At the conclusion of their meal, Leland and Kasi exchanged gifts (lucky for Leland she let him open his gift first). Kasi was presented a heart-felt card instructing her to open an envelope containing tickets to the Orlando Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker.” Leland then had her read the card again out loud that indicated that “there was one more thing” and at that moment he got down on one knee and popped the question.
