Christina & Alec

Christina and Alec's woodland wedding is so sweet and full of love. The two met nearly a decade ago at work and we are so thrilled to see their special day with family and friends come to life so beautifully. We love the way Christina paired the softness of our RM6325 gown with a rich bouquet and hair flowers, and the look on Alec's face when he sees the deep v on the back of the dress is priceless! Thank you so much to the bride's friend, Josh of JBW Photography for capturing it and the rest of this truly elegant day! Congratulations again to this lovely couple~

Saja: How did you meet?

 We met at work over 9 years ago and have been together (and still working together!) for over 8.5 years. 
Saja: How did he propose?

Christina: He took me to the beautiful Untermyer Park in Yonkers for my 30th birthday. We walked into a lovely gazebo overlooking the hudson river, coincidentally named the temple of love! I had a hunch something was brewing throughout the day but was still so surprised when he popped the question. Best birthday ever.
Saja: Where did the wedding take place?

The wedding took place at Arrow Park Lake and Lodge in Monroe, NY. It was the perfect woodsy setting that we were hoping for. The landscape was stunning and the house overlooked a beautiful lake. 
Saja: Is there anything in the photos you want to point out that we might not have noticed?

  There’s one great moment captured after we had our big reveal. As we were walking down the steps he got a look at the back of my dress for the first time and his expression is priceless. I wasn’t even aware of that moment until I saw the photo. 

Saja: What was your favorite part of the day?

The ceremony was my favorite part of the day. We had a very short and sweet ceremony but it was truly the most powerful part of the experience. I almost couldn’t get through my vows because I was so emotional but I wouldn’t change anything. A close second to my favorite part of the day would be the bonfire we held after the reception. It was great to kick back and relax after all that dancing!
Saja: Which of the photos is your favorite? Why?

Christina: My favorite photo is a group portrait with my parents, his mom and my brother and sister in law. It just screams happy to me. Family is really important to us both and this photo means a lot to us. 

Christina said, " I’m so lucky that one of my closest college friends happens to be a wedding photographer! His name is Josh Williams and he traveled all the way from California to photograph our big day. He was so much fun to work with and I could not be happier with the photos. Check him out on the Knot!"
