Jackson + Alex are MARRIED!! They gathered their friends and family in Richmond, Virginia at the Boathouse restaurant, which overlooks the river and one of the city’s iconic skyline views.
Before I go any further, I just want to say how AMAZINGLY calm Alex + Jackson were all day, despite having faced a few challenges behind the scenes!!
The morning of, Alex bit into a BAGEL and chipped her tooth!!!? This gorgeous girl pretty much just laughed it off and still looked flawless.
First Look with a proud Dad! 🙂
During the First Look with the Bridesmaids, they surprised her with a scrapbook that her closest friends and family contributed to!!
The two were all smiles as they saw each other for the first time!!
It was a toasty day, but this Bridal Party toughed it out with us!!
Vogue flowers did an AMAZING job!!
We traveled from the Boathouse to the Virginia State Capitol to do their Bride + Groom portraits….but as soon as we pulled up we could barely see through the CROWDS of Prom couples!!! There were probably close to 300 people taking pictures!
As soon as we walked up, everyone started congratulating and taking pictures of Alex + Jackson!! Knowing we didn’t have time to go to another location, I hollered to the crowd that I only had a few minutes to take these pictures and if they wouldn’t mind scooting to the left side of the steps.
THANKFULLY most were happy to move aside!! They continued to cheer and clap the whole time we took pictures! The newlyweds were like celebrities haha!!
Jackson + Alex worked together!!
They met in the audit room of one of their mutual clients, started chatting via the company’s instant messenger system. They began bonding over Sporacle quizzes and accounting. It was not long until they started to see each other outside of work.
“We went on our first date to Banditos (ha!) and the rest is pretty much history!” – Alex
You’d think that between the heat, chipping a tooth, and taking pictures in front of several hundred people that any couple would have been a little frazzled, right?! Honestly, these two were seemingly unphased.
Nothing was going to steal their joy!! After today, I’m confident these two can tackle anything with positivity and grace.
Thanks to Frank with Bunn DJ Company, the dance floor was packed all night!! At the end of the evening, NO one wanted to leave!!
When your venue doesn’t allow Sparklers, you do BUBBLES! 🙂
Jackson + Alex,
Seriously blown away by the two of you!!! You both handled some potentially stressful situations with EASE and grace. You chose joy. With your BFF by your side, any challenge can become an opportunity to grow closer together. There were so many times catching the two of you smile at each other just like this image above. Your joy is contagious and peaceful and FUN! We are so thankful to have shared this special day with you!!! HAVE THE BEST HONEYMOON!! We love you both!
