This post is waaay too long, but I just can't help it, you guys. I love this wedding so much!
For starters, Alex is by far the most courageous bride I've met yet. About a month before her wedding, she suffered a major hip injury while practicing with her dance troupe. Despite having surgery, walking with a slight limp, and navigating multiple venues with lots of stairs, she was absolutely radiant on her wedding day. I loved her rare combination of tenacity and grace.
Som was the perfect partner for Alex. He was so kind and gentle with her--helping her up and down stairs, carrying her crutches, and making sure she got breaks when she needed them. He even managed to twirl her (carefully) on the dance floor a time or two.
Great couples have to have great support systems, and Alex and Som's wedding party and family did a phenomenal job assisting and celebrating them. All of Alex's ladies showered her with attention and affirmation, and Som's groomsmen kept things lighthearted with group selfies and a plaster cast of a deer head (which I still don't understand).
I'll let the photos take it from here, but I do want to say thanks to Emilie Staats at Bliss Weddings and Events for helping the day run smoothly. A full list of vendors is below the post. Enjoy!
Thank you, Alex and Som, for including me in this beautiful and joy-filled wedding day! It was truly an honor to capture it for you and your families.
And many thanks to all the talented vendors who helped make this day possible!
