Fall Clubhouse Wedding – Alexa & Stephen

Alexa and Stephen met at a college party, he caught her eye because he was drinking something bright green from an Erlenmeyer flask!

For their proposal, they were on a cruise with Alexa’s family just after New Year’s 2016. On their first day at sea after breakfast, they headed back to the back of the ship to meet her family. After getting to the side of the ship outside, Stephen stopped and started rooting through his backpack. Alexa was anxious to join her family and asked him what he was looking for, he looked up at her and said, “a happy girlfriend”. She rolled her eyes and turned away, he called her back… and produced a Ring Pop. ” You wanted a big rock, right?” Of course!!! She happily took the candy and started going to town. When she opened her eyes, he was down on one knee! “What I wanted to ask you was, will you marry me?” Alexa cried… momentarily forgot the English language… but finally got the word “YES!” out.”

For their special day, Alexa made the card pumpkin from scratch with her Mama’s help, hand-lettered her signs and seating chart, hand assembled the favours, she designed all of the paper goods (invitation, program), her Otha Mothas (her mother’s dear friends who have known her since she was a child) designed and decorated the entire venue space… “I’m a blessed bride!!” said Alexa. They chose the blue thistle as an icon because of her Scottish heritage and it stands for devotion, strength, and determination.
