Mark and Alex’s Central Christian / Marriott Griffin Gate Wedding
Mark and Alex were married at Central Christian Church in Lexington. Their reception followed at the Marriott Griffin Gate Resort and encompassed all of the main ballrooms. It was truly a Cinderella story event. Every now and then you get a couple who come along and touch your life, Alex happens to be one of those brides for me. Over the course of the past year I have had the privilege of getting to know her and it was my honor to share in her and Mark’s wedding day.
For Mark and Alex their family is their #1 priority and it shows. There were SO many special touches everywhere you turned I was in tears many times. I think my favorite was that her bouquet was created by a family friend and each piece had a story. The long dangling pieces of greenery are actually cut from the cherry tree that was given to her by her aunt when she was born. How cool is THAT?
Instead of bouquets, her bridesmaids carried hurricane lanterns for their candlelight ceremony which created a surreal glow at the altar. I think with the number of bridesmaids that they could have turned out the lights completely and had enough light to light the room… LOL. In all seriousness… it was big fun and we count it our privilege to have been a part of their rehearsal and wedding days!
Congratulations Mark and Alex and best wishes on a beautiful life together!
