This couple’s love story is one I know very well as my husband Matt and I helped introduce them! Stephanie is one of my best friends from high school and Alex and Matt played in a summer baseball league together in college. Stephanie and Alex first began talking while we all planned a trip to NYC for New Years Eve over five years ago. Months of long phone conversations turned into their first face to face meeting at one of Alex’s minor league baseball games in Georgia. Stephanie and Alex instantly hit it off and have been inseparable ever since!
This past weekend, Stephanie and Alex tied the knot at the gorgeous Chateau Selah in East Tennessee. The blue smoky mountains painted the perfect backdrop for their vows and the sunset over the chateau was one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. “I prayed for the weather and for this day for over a year”, Stephanie explained as the sunlight glistened through every window and across the surrounding mountaintops, “and we feel truly blessed”. The sky turned a dusky blue, heartfelt and downright hilarious speeches were made, and the sparklers dazzled almost as brilliantly as the stars as Stephanie and Alex made their way through them at the end of an incredible celebration. Congratulations my dear friends. I love you both! A special thank you to Mekina Saylor, Olivia Breeding, and Traci Renee Smith for helping me capture such a beautiful day and allowing me to enjoy my role as a bridesmaid and photographer! You all are the best! Now, enjoy reliving some of my favorite memories made at Stephanie and Alex’s gorgeous Chateau Selah wedding below.
