This wedding was so sweet, Christ centered and just lots of FUN! The day was put together with drops of love and a lot of hard work! The entire family set up the venue, friends handmade the details and the flowers. This is one of the nicest DIY weddings I’ve seen to date. But, best of all was the union and excitement of the bride and groom. It was electric! Alex was so super excited, with a tinge of nerves–but the good nervousness and again more so just excitement to see his soon to be wife! Britta on the other hand was unbelievably calm considering all the moving parts of a wedding day!! If you know Britta-you know her infectious smile and her heart are the biggest and brightest a person can have. They contemplated the “First Look” a few times–but I think the images below will reveal what a dream it was to be in each others arms.

Remember that smile I was talking about? Yeah-sheer perfection!
This was Britta peeking her head out to see the back of Alex, who was patiently awaiting her arrival for the “First Look”. I let them snuggle, gaze at each other and after a few sweet tears–then they were TOTALLY checking each other out. It was the cutest thing ever. Alex at one time even looked down at her in pride, and then said “are those real diamonds on the dress?” Britta laughed. He was mesmerized by her beauty-you can see why!! When they embraced–you could just tell God had hand picked a perfect match.
The HAPPY tears!!
The girls looking on… they too were the sweetest ever! Both Alex and Britta’s friends were totally awesome. The stories from their friends, The Church and family–truly reveal the genuineness of Alex and Britta’s character.
The BRIDE!!!!! Britta lost her father this year, so to see her 4 brothers walk her down the aisle was a total tear jerker and yet sorrow was washed away with comfort because she was literally surrounded by her brothers.
Sweet speeches–lots of giggles and totally heartfelt memories and well wishes. It was classy!
Being both Academy Grads, of course they had to cut their cake with a saber!!! And then promptly lick off the frosting!
The Maid of Honor may have broke her arm a week or so before the wedding, but that did NOT stop her from rocking the day…and the robot dance moves.
More HAPPY tears, and weld up pride and love for their sweet friend. . . .
Ya’ll then the PARTY got even more crazy!! A circle was formed, and several epic “dance-offs” were performed! Back flips, conga line, the sprinkler and many many more.
Alex literally had to wisp Britta away–no one wanted to see them leave… yet everyone was also excited beyond words to see them run away as husband and wife!!!!
