Cristina and Alex are two of the sweetest people I’ve ever gotten to work with. They radiate joy and their wedding day was drenched in love and happiness! Cristina and Alex met at the movies their first year of college and it was something straight out of the Saturday Night Live skit, “Can I have Yo Numba?” – says Cristina! She says Alex was so nervous to ask her for her number she had to say yes, he was so cute! Their relationship spanned the world as Cristina studied abroad in Morocco for the first 6 months of their relationship. Seven years later, Cristina and Alex were taking their rescue pup, Scooter (see how adorable Scooter is below!) for a sunrise walk on the beach of Ocean City and Alex dropped to one knee and asked her to marry him. It took her by surprise and of course, she said yes!
Cristina and Alex were married on a gorgeous Friday evening in Ocean City, Maryland. Both grew up spending their summers in OC so of course, it was a natural choice for their wedding. Their reception was at the beautiful Lighthouse Sound Restaurant overlooking the bay and the Ocean City skyline. Cristina wore a lace gown by Casablanca. Alex wore a light grey suit by Enzo Custom and Converse hightops. Cristina wore her grandmother’s pearl necklace – a necklace that her grandmother was able to smuggle out of Cuba after the revolution. The gold ring she wears is her grandfathers from when he was child – a ring that Cristina has been wearing since he passed six years ago. Alex had her ring made his great-grandmother’s diamonds. Cristina and Alex are honeymooning for two weeks in Hawaii!! Congratulations you two!!
A huge thank you to all the vendors for making Cristina and Alex’s wedding day beautiful!
