I have been looking forward to Alexa and Dave’s wedding for months now. We had such a great time during their engagement shoot I wasn’t sure that we could top it. But let me back up a bit. You may recall back in September (yes, I am a little behind in my blogging again) there were rumblings of eminent government shutdowns. Typically this is of no concern to a bride and groom except that Alexa and Dave’s wedding was to be held at Fort Hancock within the Gateway National Recreation Area. Since the park is run by the National Park Service it was at risk of being closed the day of the wedding. Thankfully our goverment held out for two more days – crisis averted.
The day was a perfect fall day, sunny and just a little brisk. Alexa looked amazing in her Nicole Miller antique white crepe de chine lace back gown. The chapel train really added just the right touch of elegance. One of Alexa’s bridesmaids officiated the late afternoon ceremony which made it all that much more special. Just as they were walking down the aisle we were all treated to a spectacular sunset. Big thanks to our good friends Spinners Entertainment who kept everyone on the dance floor all night. Also in need of a special shout out is Nikki D. who did a fantastic job on Alexa’s make-up and Merri Makers Caterers.
