Beth and Alex’s wedding day was such a joy to be a part of! I actually met Beth and Alex both for the first time (in person) the morning of their wedding. This doesn’t normally happen, but since they are currently living in Florida (Alex works for The Tampa Bay Rays!) it just didn’t work out pre-wedding day! Beth and Alex’s warm smiles and natural excitement when they saw me made it feel like we’d been longtime friends. They’re the kind of people you just want to be around! It’s not surprising that these two awesome people also surround themselves with equally lovely friends and family. All day long, the bridal party and family members were ready to go with anything that needed help.
Beth and Alex got married at Beth’s grandma’s church (how special!) and had their reception at The Abbey Resort. Their reception looked beautifully elegant and also held a few special events! The first was Beth’s grandma who polkaed with each of her 23 grandchildren- it was the first time I’ve seen anything like this and I can’t get over how memorable that is for the grandkids! I wish I had thought of something like that for my own wedding 😉 The second was a surprise from Beth’s uncles, dad, and cousin who dressed up as the Village People to lead the YMCA. SO many fun memories!
Beth and Alex- it was an honor to spend your day with you! Thank you for entrusting this job to me, and I look forward to the next time our paths will cross (maybe in Florida!? I’d love to take a trip there in the winter haha!). Congratulations and enjoy your sneak peek!
