alexa and ryan: wedding at marco ocean beach resort

There’s a heart drawn around his 6th grade yearbook picture.  Though life would take them down different roads for a season – her 6th grade self was right – he was the one.

Sometimes our hearts know their home long before our heads do.  And slowly – they realized that they were always and forever the one for each other.

When Ryan’s eyes locked with Alexa’s while the ocean brought wave after wave – we all knew: sometimes our 6th grade selves are wiser than we know.

Ryan and Alexa, I think the hardest part of compiling this post has been this: WORDS FALL SHORT.  I go to try and describe how grateful we are for you, how much we love you, how you two light up a room with your kindness and love…and it’s never enough.  There aren’t adequate words to describe our love for you.  I witnessed it all day as your family and friends gathered to celebrate.  We’re all transformed by your presence in our lives.  Knowing you has made us better.  And we’re forever grateful for it.

We love you to the moon and back.  And if y’all want to do a yearly reunion – just count us in anytime…


No wedding day is possible without an incredible team.  Here are the amazing vendors who helped celebrate Alexa and Ryan:

Wedding Dress: Lazaro
Bridesmaid’s Dresses: Adrianna Papell
Bridal Makeup: David Frohmberg
Bride’s Hair: Marek
Videographer: I heart utopia films


You don’t know how much I love this family.  ALL THE MUCH.  And when her dad walked in and saw her in her wedding dress – they weren’t the only two with tears…


Just so you know, the band Society Hill is AMAZING.  Times infinity…

Did this happen?  Oh yes it did.  Not once – but TWICE.
