Alex & Jake held their wedding on a beautiful, cloudy July day at Hotel Covington in Covington, KY! For those who don't know where that is it's right across the Ohio River & Cincinnati. I arrived at the hotel to be greeted with the hecticness of everyone getting their hair & makeup done and got started on shooting her details while my second shooter started working on Jakes details!
Alex bought all of her ladies these adorable pj sets with matching socks for her and her girls to wear! The guys all did Hawaiian shirts (which will come into play later 😉). We ended up having a blast getting everyone on the bed for a fun photo with the girls that I went over to the guys room and we set up the exact photo for them! The guys 100% embraced the silliness of it and it's one of my favorite moments of the day!!
Family is super important to Alex & Jake so Alex & her mom had a private moment to get her dress on, just the two of them and that's going to be such a special memory to hold onto, and then we had her sisters and the rest of her bridesmaids come in for a first look! From there we went straight into doing a first look with Alex & her father which was one of the sweetest first look ever with a dad.
They decided to also do a first look and the pure amount of joy on Jake's face when he saw Alex was the most heartwarming reaction ever.
Jake & Alex have been together since they were in high school and seeing their families officially come together with their closest friends & family is an honor. Their ceremony was out in the courtyard at Hotel Covington & it was simple & sweet which fit their relationship perfectly.
All that's left to do is party it up!! Those Hawaiian shirts made their way full circle for their big grand entrance ;)! Seeing everyone smiling, having fun and just enjoying themselves getting down on the dance floor is my favorite part of weddings!!
I can't wait to see Alex & Jake grow even further as a couple and a family!
