It seems like weather has become a really common theme on the blog lately and I could definitely spend the bulk of this post talking about all our plans and how they were affected by the rain etc. I'm not going to do that though. I'm kinda tired of talking about rain and the more time I spend on that, the less space I have to talk about Alex and Lucy.
We didn't meet Alex and Lucy the same way we meet most of our couples. Matter of fact we didn't meet Alex and Lucy until well after they'd booked with us. We actually met Lucy's mom Kate first because of her role at Shelby Farms. So, leading up to the wedding the only things we knew about Lucy and Alex were what they put on social media (and we all know how honest we are about our lives on Instagram). We did finally get to meet them though and they're pretty awesome!
The more time we got to spend with them the more awesome we realized they were. They're both so casual and relaxed about everything that we knew wedding day would be totally fine even though it would be the first time they had ever been in front of our cameras. Lucy and I met for coffee a couple days before their wedding to chat about details and talk about this and that. When we started talking about reception details she told me there would be "some greenery on the tables and a few other things". Based on that, I didn't expect to see much when I arrived, so I was definitely surprised when I walked into their reception space to see everything they'd setup!
The details of the day weren't Lucy's priority though. Her priority was definitely Alex. They met when they were 17 so for them this has been a while in the making. You could definitely tell how excited they both were to finally be getting married. I'm not 100% sure Alex stopped smiling the entire day. In fact, to get a photo of Alex with all of his groomsmen not smiling I actually had to be just a bit mean to him (I'm still kinda hoping I didn't actually hurt his feelings and he knows I was joking) (I think he knows) (maybe).
There were so many sweet moments between Lucy and Alex throughout their entire day that it's probably a good thing they didn't share a first look. I never would've been able to fit this into one blog post if they had!
