I can’t think of a better way to kick off the weekend than with Alec & Alessandra’s beautiful spring wedding at The Stone Terrace!

Alessandra and Alec have known each other since 2008 when they were in eighth grade and youth group together at their local church. Although they knew each other, they weren’t friends until their sophomore year of high school. That’s when Alec really noticed Alessandra and saw how beautiful she was! After seeing her at school and at youth group, Alec realized he had feelings for Alessandra and asked for her phone number one day after church. After a few weeks of talking and texting, Alec asked Alessandra to go with him to the Spring Formal at the school. After a fun night of dancing and hanging with their friends at Spring Formal, they wanted to kiss on Alessandra’s doorstep but were both too nervous! Time passed, and in a few short weeks, Alec texted Alessandra one night during the week. He asked her if she would be in school the next day as he had an important question to ask her. Just outside of her homeroom class, on May 27, 2010, Alec asked Alessandra if she would be his girlfriend. She said yes, joyfully, and the rest is history! These two high school sweethearts began the journey of a lifetime together.

Congratulations, Alec & Alessandra! Enjoy some of my favorites from their beautiful spring wedding below!
