Looking at the extraordinary love between Alexa and Aaron, you would never easily guess that the couple used to be strictly “just friends.” Having met in fall of 2011 while they were both in relationships, the couple maintained a friendship amidst breakups for each of them. Although the couple had met in part due to their alma mater, University of Arizona, Aaron lived in Maine in 2013. While Alexa was living in Arizona, the “friends” took a vacation trip to California and left as a couple. After a year and a half long distance relationship, they moved to Hartford, Connecticut together. Their relationship progressed even more and by early 2016, Aaron was ready to pop the question – but not without leaving a couple hints along the way.
“About 4 months before he proposed, I was traveling and found a Ring Pop in my suitcase. Over the next few months, I started finding more and more ring pops in random places – my car, yoga bag, and even at work,” said Alexa. Little did she know that this was all in preparation of the incredible proposal Aaron had planned on a surprise summer road trip to Antelope Canyon. During the private tour, Aaron opened up his backpack that was filled with Ring Pops, got down on one knee and pulled out the real ring. Alexa immediately said yes and the couple enjoyed the rest of their getaway in absolute bliss.
The Country Club at DC Ranch was the perfect setting for their elegantly country club wedding. Love Story Films created a beautiful film celebrating the couple’s day, while Melissa Jill Photography shot stunning images depicting the couple’s joy. Alexa’s romantic and elegant Calla Blanche gown was breathtaking and with Aaron’s deep blue custom Nordstrom suit, the couple epitomized modern elegance. The reception was set in the courtyard and brought in more of the rich blue colors with the tabletop setup by The Confetti Studio. The other copper elements contrasted beautifully and raised the level of elegance. Jenni from Imoni Events helped the couple create their absolute dream country club wedding before the concluded the magical night at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess.
