Jennifer Leonard and Kellen Corbin were united in marriage on March 2, 2015. The bride is the daughter of Catherine & Mark Hall of Alabaster, Alabama, and John & Lynn Leonard of Helena, Alabama. The groom is the son of Steve and Kim Corbin of Lambert, Mississippi.
True love knows no bounds, be it time or distance. When Jennifer and Kellen met on eHarmony, they knew their relationship wouldn’t be typical. They lived four and a half hours away from each other, so it took some time before they were able to have their first date. When they finally went out, they bowled a few games and grabbed dinner afterward. Things went so well that they went out the next night, too!On February 28, 2015, Kellen asked for Jennifer’s hand in marriage. They were taking a walk on his grandfather’s land when Kellen pulled her off to a special spot. As a symbol of their lasting love, Kellen made a time capsule for them to open on their 10-year anniversary. He even planted a tree to mark the location.
The happy couple eloped in favor of an intimate ceremony in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Park on March 2, 2015. It snowed the night before, creating a beautiful winter backdrop for the ceremony. With the Rocky Mountains in the background, the view was nothing short of breathtaking. Kevin Cooper officiated the ceremony.
A snow day just isn’t a snow day without a snowball fight, and a winter wedding is no exception. After the ceremony, the newlyweds played in the snow and sent a video message announcing their marriage to their families.
The bride wore a Galina gown with a strapless bodice and empire waist. The ruched tulle wedding dress also featured a sweeping train. For something old, she attached her grandmother’s brooch to her bouquet. For something new, she wore a string of pearls gifted by her mother.
The newlyweds held a cake reception in Lambert, Mississippi, for their family and friends on May 2, 2015. The casual affair had several flavors to choose from, including strawberry, Italian crème, chocolate crème and carrot cake.
Following a honeymoon in Breckenridge, Colorado, the couple is at home in Lambert, Mississippi. An Auburn University alumna, Jennifer is the Art Director at Click Magazine. Kellen is an alumnus of Mississippi State University and a self-employed farmer.
