Alexander & Hailey met while attending college. Alexander knew Hailey was the one when he texted her one evening a quip from Spongebob and without missing a beat she replied with another Spongebob quip. The duo became fast inseparable and after dating awhile became engaged.
They chose the beautiful grounds of Marylhurst University for their ceremony and were surrounded by lots of family and friends. A reception followed at The Source Church. Their bridal party was comprised of siblings and friends alike and the groom's mother played a pivotal role in coordinating things for them making sure their wedding day went without any hiccups.
Hailey and her girls got ready in the upstairs bathroom above the chapel while Alexander and his groomsmen got ready in a downstairs room. I loved the details and cut of Hailey's dress and it looked absolutely exquisite on her. Alexander chose to dress in an H&M suit with his black boots complimenting him and his style perfectly. I love seeing couple's incorporate their personalities into their dress attire.
Both decided to do a first look before their ceremony as it provided them a great chance to get their family formals done before the festivities of the ceremony and reception. I'm a sucker for first looks as well because it gives the opportunity for great photographs in a more intimate surrounding with the bride and groom. It's also a great way to relax and reset right before the ceremony begins.
Marylhurst University has several great areas for portraits. Add in a gorgeous couple and you have a really happy photographer.
Some quick formal shots before the ceremony begins...
The ceremony was gorgeous. A beautiful and sunny day in Marylhurst, Oregon.
And just like that they were married. Now friends and family would head to the reception area to celebrate Alexander & Hailey's big day.
Congratulations again to these two. I wish them all the best in their new lives together. May all of your days be filled with love and laughter. May you remember the day you got married and all of the feelings you felt.
