Lexie + Aaron

How did you meet?

We met on a cruise! He was cruising with his family and I was cruising with mine. We met and fell in love immediately. I moved from FL to WI after 4 months of knowing him and we’ve been together ever since!

When did you know they were the one?

I knew immediately. He stole my heart. He was kind, thoughtful, and such a gentleman. We had an instant attraction. I even told my mom the next day after meeting him that I just met the guy I was going to marry! She thought I was crazy, but look at us now!

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

He is thoughtful, creative, hardworking and has a big heart! Sorry, I know you only asked for 3 🙂

Who proposed and how?

He proposed back in FL. We both have loved FL and loved there at different times of our life. He took me to my favorite restaurant in Tampa and proposed there. He had hidden photographers who captured the entire thing and he set up an engagement shoot for immediately after!

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

I loved the simplicity but it was also so glam! It was sparkly and I knew it would look gorgeous on the beach for our wedding! It was still so lightweight and very comfortable. That was a big deal for me since I would be in it all night. I wanted to make sure I felt fabulous but also comfortable! I felt like Lola was made for me!

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

The best moment for me would be our first dance. It was to our favorite song and in that moment, I just felt so happy. We had all of our closest family and friends there for us and we felt so connected to each other and everyone there!

What were your favourite details? 

My favorite details would be the venue and table arrangements. It was beachy but so classy! I had a vision of how I wanted it to be and it came to life! We also did our ceremony in the dark on the beach and it was absolutely gorgeous.

What advice would you tell other brides?

I would tell other brides to focus on having fun! It is your day with your husband- so enjoy it. Eat the food you want to eat, drink what you want to drink, dance to the songs that you want to dance to! It’s your time so you should make it your best night ever. And I would tell them to take moments throughout the day to soak it in and be present. It goes so quickly!

Any standout vendors?

All of them! My wedding planner, florist, photographer, videographer, DJ! I truly had the most amazing team! I couldn’t have done it without them and my vision came to life because of all of them.
