A Love Story That Began in College
The journey of Alexandra and Dylan is a beautiful tale of friendship blossoming into love. They first crossed paths in college, brought together by their mutual friends. What started as a close friendship, with shared laughs and memories, gradually turned into something more profound. It was at a college date party during their senior year when their friendship took a romantic turn. Their friends had always sensed a special connection between them, playfully predicting that they would end up together - and they were right!
A Proposal Under the Houstonian Lights
Dylan chose the perfect setting for the proposal - the Houstonian's iconic oak tree, a favorite spot of Alexandra adorned with year-long Christmas lights. The surprise unfolded on a Thursday evening, a day they traditionally spent with family, making it all the more special. Following the proposal, a surprise engagement dinner awaited them, where both families and friends celebrated their new beginning. Symbolically, their rehearsal dinner also took place at the Houstonian, bringing their love story full circle.
Chic, Treehouse/Garden Vibes: Elegance Meets Nature
Alexandra and Dylan's wedding was a picturesque fusion of chic elegance and enchanting garden aesthetics. They envisioned a celebration that would capture the essence of a sophisticated treehouse nestled amidst lush greenery. Every detail, from the floral arrangements to the venue decor, was meticulously chosen to create an ambiance that was both stylish and naturally serene. This unique blend offered guests an immersive experience, where the charm of a garden party met the refinement of a chic, upscale event, perfectly encapsulating Alexandra and Dylan's love for the outdoors and refined taste..
Dancing the Night Away
"The most important thing to me was making sure everyone was on the dance floor all night! Dylan and I are always the first ones on the dance floor at weddings, so it was important to us to have a great band that would keep everyone dancing!" shared Alexandra. Their wedding truly reflected this sentiment. The dance floor was the heart of their celebration, bustling with energy and joy as friends and family danced the night away. Their love for dancing and fun created an infectious atmosphere, ensuring a memorable experience for every guest.
The First Look and Intimate Moments
The first look was a highlight for Alexandra, transforming her pre-ceremony nerves into excitement. In this intimate moment, she revealed her long-kept secret – the wedding dress – to Dylan, marking the start of their special day together. This experience, shared in the tranquility of their closest circle, set a joyous and intimate tone for the day. Their first look wasn't just about the dress; it was about connecting deeply before stepping into their celebration, a decision they cherished deeply.
Bridesmaids’ Fashion: A Palette of Personal Style
One of the standout features of Alexandra and Dylan’s wedding was the bridesmaids’ attire. Breaking away from traditional uniformity, Alexandra empowered her bridesmaids to express their individual styles. She provided a color palette and let each woman choose a dress that made her feel fabulous.
The result was a stunning and eclectic mix of gowns from diverse fashion houses like Tootsies, Revolve, Show Me Your Mumu, and Neiman Marcus. This approach not only added a vibrant and unique aesthetic to the wedding but also ensured that each bridesmaid was comfortable and confident, wearing something they truly loved.
Alexandra’s thoughtful consideration towards her bridesmaids’ comfort and style reflects the inclusive and warm spirit of their wedding. It’s a beautiful example of how modern brides are redefining wedding traditions to prioritize personal expression and joy.
Why AVP: A Bride's Trust in Excellence

I knew they would handle any situation seamlessly, allowing me to focus on enjoying my day," she explains.
