Congratulation to Hope and Alex! It was love at first sight for these two. We are ecstatic to share their love story and photos we received of their wedding.
"My cousin’s girlfriend, Lexi Smith, works at Mia Grace! My grandma cried when she saw me try on the one I picked and I knew it was the one! It was so wonderful working with Lexi! She was so helpful and kind!"
Their Love Story
Hope and Alex met through social media. Hope was scrolling through Instagram and saw a cute guy in the ‘people you may know’ section and decided to follow him. Five minutes later, Alex messaged her saying, "Hey Beautiful!" They immediately hit it off. They bonded over the loss of their mothers from cancer. They started talking that night and have been inseparable since!
She Said Yes!
Alex booked a cabin in the mountains of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Hope and Alex planned to go out to eat their first night visiting. Hope was getting ready to go out when Alex came down the stairs and said, “you know I love you right?” Hope said well yes! Alex got down on one knee and asked Hope to be his wife. Of course, she said YES!
Alex is a farmer and Hope grew up in the country until high school. They decided to stick with their roots and have a rustic, country themed wedding. The day was filled with sunflowers, red lilies, and eucalyptus. It was the perfect day to celebrate their love for one another!
