Alex and Rachel met at work in New Orleans. About a year later, in the Fall of 2013, Alex asked Rachel out on a date, and they went to see a show at the Civic Theater. That first date set the stage for great things to come. Alex officially captured Rachel’s heart when for Christmas that year he gave her tickets to see the Nutcracker, and they haven’t let go of each other since.
On September 18th, 2015, Alex told Rachel they needed to go back to the Civic Theater (Where it all began!) to pick up tickets for an upcoming show. Once inside the theater he took her up to the balcony where they sat on their first date, got down on one knee, and proposed. Right after Rachel said “YES!” the curtain in the theater went up to reveal their friends and family on stage to celebrate the wonderful occasion .
Their wedding day was filled with family, friends, and so much love. Rachel’s favorite part of the day was when they held hands around the door and reading their letters to each other. She was nervous before the ceremony and as soon as she held his hand she felt so much peace and excitement to marry him. Alex’s favorite part of the day was seeing Rachel at the end of the aisle, and he had the sweetest reaction when those church doors opened. I think everyone’s heart melted when Alex held his hand over his heart as she walked down the aisle. They shared vows and said I do. I LOVE that they gave Thad and I lots time after the ceremony to take pictures of the two of them alone. Once that was finished, they headed to the LSU Faculty Club to dance the night away with Souled Out. They finished off the night with a District Donut late night snack and a sparkler send-off.
