Grace and Alex

Simply put, their day was vibrant. The color palette of the girls boho-styled dresses and the guys funky floral printed ties had the perfect amount of brightness and color, and the selection of wild flowers paired perfectly. But more than just the decor and attire, the tone of their day matched the appearance with equal vibrancy – from the cheer joy and energy of Alex and Grace to the comradely and entertainment of the evening. I commend the way that Grace and Alex included their guests in the wedding day, and not just as bystanders or observers, but they really brought them in to play a role in their celebration. They had all the guests vote on which wedding tattoo both Grace and Alex were going to get. They hired an amazing face painter to decorate adults and children alike.  Never have I seen a couple more truly enjoy their wedding day than these two. They didn’t get hung up on the little things. They were there to take it all in, snags and all, and revel in their merriment. I’d shoot this wedding again in a heartbeat. Congrats you guys!
