I met Bonnie and Alex when I taught a photography class at their high school. They were so so cute as a couple in my class! I have loved teaching that photography class through the years and getting to know the kids through the years. Bonnie asked me to photograph her senior pictures…and now a couple years later…their wedding. I was so honored and thrilled! I seriously got all teary eyed during their “first look”! Their love story is a sweet one…aren’t all love stories! πŸ™‚ So here is theirs … in their words….

  • Alex and I met my freshman year of high school and his 8th grade year. Although, we didn’t start talking or develop a friendship until the summer before my senior year when he was on my list of people to invite to a surprise party. We started dating shortly after that when I nervously told him I had feelings for him, and he eventually admitted he felt the same way. We will celebrate 5 years in August πŸ™‚
  • I tried my best to fool Bonnie but she is pretty wise to that type of thing. I asked her best friend to take her out for coffee and suggest going to a park to drink it. She knew what was happening as soon as she found out which park they were going to. I was there waiting for her with a full heart and a shiny ring. Neither of us remember what was said, but all that matters is that she said yes.

  • Bonnie: I love that Alex is a genuinely kind and easy to get along with person. He’s charismatic and can create a connection with anyone that he meets. He makes me a more extroverted person. Alex: I love how much she wants to help everyone around her. She has the biggest heart for others and it shows every day. I admire her for being so kind and loving.

  • We love to bowl, and have a running talley on who has won the most games. We always have a show that we’re watching together on Netflix and like to watch while eating good food. Alex got me to love sushi, so we enjoy a nice sushi date every now and again.

  • Bonnie: All morning, I was feeling extremely nervous. I knew it was the nerves of the whole day building up at once. But once I walked into the sanctuary to see Alex for the first look, I felt completely fine. The first look was such a personal, sweet moment that set the tone for the rest of the day. Alex: Getting to stand up in front of all our friends and family and just express our love for each other. It was such a happy and pure moment that I will never forget.

  • Bonnie: It would have lasted longer! Alex: I would have eaten more.
  • Don’t sweat it. Sometimes things happen that you can’t control, and you just have to roll with it. At the end of the day, you’re married and that’s the best part ☺️
