Til death do they part! Congratulations to Alicia and Joey on saying “I Do!” These two tied the knot in a Halloween-themed wedding. We are ecstatic to share their love story and wedding photos with you!
“Mia Grace was my first and only bridal shop because it was so easy to love so many of the dresses. They understood exactly what I wanted, had me try a couple different styles just in case, and guided me into my ‘Yes Dress.’ They made it so fun and so easy I will always tell any bride-to-be to go there!” - Alicia
Alicia and Joey met at the grand opening of Center Ice Brewery. Joey was helping his friend open the brewery and Alicia was bartending. They’re both great conversationalists, so the two became quick friends. One of their mutual friends was getting married in Vegas three months later and Joey bought Alicia’s ticket and took her as his girlfriend.
Easter morning, Joey made Alicia an Easter basket with candy and eggs. One egg was metal and gold (like a Game of Thrones dragon egg) and when Alicia opened it, his grandma’s wedding ring was inside. They both got so nervous Joey just said, “Ok will you?” Alicia said, “Yes!” They both laughed and then Alicia made Joey get on one knee and ask again.
Both Alicia and Joey have loved Halloween since they were kids. For their wedding, they booked the closest date open in 2021 to Halloween and had a Halloween wedding. ‘Til Death” was their theme and everything was black- guests wore black, the tables were black, and Joey wore a black suit. Their decor included candles and candelabras along with fog machines and skulls. Everything came together perfectly for their special day!
