Congratulations to Lexi and Brendan on their beautiful wedding! These two tied the knot in a romantic, modern ceremony at Olde Wicks Factory. We are ecstatic to share their love story and perfect proposal with you!
“THE BEST. I could not recommend Mia Grace more. The first time I went, I had tried on a couple dresses prior so I had a feeling of what I wanted. I never felt pressured to buy anything, they let me try on whatever I wanted and the stylist even had me try on some things that were out of my comfort zone. They were the best to work with.” - Lexi
Lexi and Brendan went to the same high school. Lexi was a freshman and Brendan was a senior. She was a cheerleader and he played basketball. Lexi had the biggest crush on him, but she was sure he didn’t know she existed. Flash forward about eight years later and they met at a mutual friends Memorial Day party. They’ve been together ever since!
The couple found out their families are very close. They all grew up in a small town in Illinois and most of them went to high school together. Merging families was the easiest thing!
Lexi and Brendan had their very first date at The Boathouse in Forest Park a couple of years ago. One very cold, rainy January day Brendan suggested they go get lunch there. Lexi was not having it and did not want to get ready. She wasn’t in the mood to leave her warm house. However, Brendan ended up convincing her to go.
Brendan had been talking to the staff about his plan so everyone knew it was going to happen. Their waiter came by and got the couple some drinks, Then Brendan grabbed Lexi’s hand, said some cute things, and got down on one knee. He even had one of his friends there to get the moment on camera! He said he was so nervous he couldn’t wait any longer. It was perfect.
Lexi and Brendan’s wedding was modern and romantic. Lexi’s bridesmaids were in light champagne satin dresses and the groomsmen wore black suits. The dads, grandpas, and moms were also in all black. Lexi wanted pops of white flowers and greenery throughout the ceremony and reception. Everything came together perfectly and looked amazing!
