When you ask Alexis about how her and Gary’s love story started, she says there was nothing romantic about it- it was just very real, and I love that! Not every love story starts with magic and being swept off your feet. So many start the way life does- with challenges and barriers, tender moments and first date jitters, every day coffee shop dates and brunch. It’s these every day moments that strengthen a relationship and let it blossom from a friendship and flirtation into a love that will last.
Alexis and Gary had an incredible wedding at the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Garden! Alexis took great care in planning each detail, down to the beautiful florals on their centerpieces and the DIY sign behind the cake table (so CUTE!). Every detail was gorgeous and really showed off their amazing relationship. And then you have the bride and groom who couldn’t keep their hands off each other- pure love, romance, and all the heart eye emojis you can stand.
