Alexandria & Josiah: A South Florida Museum Celebration

August 22, 2013 - Weddings
Love. In their own words....
"We met our freshmen year of college. I thought he was a cute preachers boy and he thought I was a beautiful wild thing! 

However, our superficial ideas of who each other were all changed one night. All it took was a late night walk in the rain, a ridiculous hunt for spaghetti, and a conversation straight from the heart to spark a connection between us that only continues to grow. 

On November 3, 2012, we took a day trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, for Alexandria's birthday. Josiah had gotten the ring in early September and had been waiting for the opportune moment to propose. On our way through the mountains, Alexandria suggested pulling off the road and going down to the river to take some pictures. Once alongside the water, we both hopped some rocks till we were on a large rock in the middle of the rushing river. Alexandria was busy taking pictures--completely oblivious to everything else. Josiah came up behind her, got down on one knee, and popped the question! 

And of course, she said 'yes!'

His Favorite Moments:
"It is hard to pick out one memorable moment of such a special day. First, the butterflies in my stomach as I watch Alexandria walk down the aisle towards me. I loved sharing our vows with each other. And to cap the day off, dancing the night away with all our close friends. "

Josiah's father performed the ceremony as a wonderful special touch. I just adore this photo too! Every person and expression is priceless to them.
Her Favorite Moments:

"Wow what's a girl to say, it was a day filled with precious moments. One of my most cherished ones was getting to exchange vows with my soulmate. We wrote the vows ourselves so every word had a deep reach into our hearts."
First Communion Together

"He loves me even when I am unlovable and I know thats why this marriage is going to last forever."

Love you guys!  Kelly, Dale and Margie... you have raised a wonderful, bright and beautiful family!
Harlem Shake It boys!
Manatee lovin to set the mood.
Advice from Alexandria and Josiah:
"Be in agreement with your fiancee. Compromise, sacrifice, and let it all go the morning of the wedding and just enjoy the day--no matter what goes wrong. Don't let a wonderful day with your new spouse, your closest friends, and family go to waste. 


Hire a top of the line photographer like Krystal (...or just get Krystal!) and make sure you talk about what you are expecting on the day of. Don't let yourself get distracted by continually trying to look good for the camera. Number one it would get super tiring, and number two the pictures will be beautiful and timeless if you just let go and be yourself."
