Toronto Blue Jays Pitcher And His Bride Choose Country Chic For Okeechobee Wedding
What they do: Leigh Anne Proctor, 30, is a former teacher for the Martin County School District and Todd Redmond, 30, is a pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays.
On how they met: Leigh Anne’s family held a benefit skeet shoot and concert for their foundation, M.E.’s Team, in February 2012. Todd was there as the “celebrity guest” and as a friend of Leigh Anne’s brother, Scott Proctor. The two met during the concert and continued to stay in touch throughout the next six months. By the next November, they started dating during the baseball offseason.
On the proposal: Todd came home for the All Star break from baseball in July 2013. Leigh Anne was working as a director of a summer camp for adults with special needs, and Todd was visiting for the day. During the lunch break, Todd arranged for a group of camp attendees to enter the room holding signs that read “Say Yes!” And she did.
On selecting the sites for the ceremony and reception: While the couple lives in Jensen Beach during the baseball offseason, they chose to have the wedding ceremony and reception at Quail Creek Plantation in Okeechobee because it’s where they met. The location has cabins where family members and the wedding party stayed during the weekend; and the groomsmen and men of the family were able to go quail hunting the morning of the big day. “The land and lodge at Quail Creek fits our personalities and relationship very well—we enjoy being outside and hunting in our free time, therefore this venue could not have been more perfect for our day,” Leigh Anne says.
On the theme: Leigh Anne and Todd chose a “country chic” theme for the wedding, which included camouflage pocket squares and garter, and cowboy boots. The couple also had a signature drink served in Mason jars and a s’mores bar complete with a fire pit outside of the reception.
