Alex and Alex’s Scripps Seaside Forum Wedding Day

We absolutely love hearing the stories about how couples connect and this amazing duo started their journey as classmates in 8th English, assigned seats next to each other, Alex and Alex didn’t have an idea at that time they would be sitting next to each other eventually for the rest of their lives.  It wasn’t until their freshman year at college that their friendship evolved into something more.  Their natural attraction to one another was only made stronger by their ability to always make each other laugh and the fact that they are somewhat opposites that found themselves enjoying trying new things and loving life just a little bit more than before.  And they wanted their summer wedding day to be a true celebration of their friendship, their love, and their laughter.  Overlooking the Pacific Ocean at Scripps Seaside Forum, these two said their “I Do’s” including a little improv from the bride with a brief British accent during her vows, stopping us in our tracks a bit, we were like, who is that, what an unforgettable moment!  The two of them were pretty much inseparable with their entourage and families always nearby.  After a little private walk on the beach, the celebration unfolded with the beats of DJ David Otero.  It was definitely the wedding celebration they had dreamed of having and we are so honored to have been there to capture every precious moment.  We can’t wait to share some of our favorite moments from their big day.

LeeAnna and Jake's Wedding Day

Ah, LeeAnna and Jake... where do we start with this fabulous down to earth fun-loving couple and their dream wedding day...

(and it seems serendipitous to us that their wedding is the first we have posted since the pandemic began in 2020.)

 

Words at this point don't necessarily have to be spoken anymore to share the emotions and patience that 2020 required from the world.

We very much recall all the conversations with couples as the news hit about shutdowns and specifically remember talking to LeeAnna and Jake 60 days out from their original June 2020 wedding date and all of us coming to terms with the fact that another year of waiting seemed inevitable. LeeAnna and Jake focused their energies together on enduring this journey with the hopes that one day their dream would come to fruition... in the words of the bride, there were a lot of lows with very little highs during the shifts and pivots of COVID-19.

Patience prevailed...

To witness them celebrating with their family and friends was like watching a dream come true.

What we would have taken for granted pre-pandemic magnified the fact that their wedding day was here.

This journey we have all been through is a personal one and left us feeling amiss and made it hard to share any "highs" we may have experienced through a global pandemic.

Jake and LeeAnna's wedding day meant as much to us as it meant to them!

A true symbol that love is the strongest bond and if you can hold on tight and never let go of your dreams, there is a rainbow on the other side.

Congrats Mr and Mrs Thompson, you are one of a kind and we will always remember the laughter, joy and DANCING that you never for a moment took for granted.
