Alexandrea and Steven had a fun-filled wedding at Delightful Inspirations in Raleigh, North Carolina just a few weeks ago. With a charming outside-ceremony, smiling guests, and a lovely sunny sky, their day seemed all but perfect. We were able to spend some time with the happy couple and their closest family and friends after their ceremony to capture some beautiful images.

The two met on an online dating site and slowly but surely got to know one another through emails and phone calls. Despite the distance between them (almost two and a half hours!) they realized there connection was far too deep to be just a friendship. The couple soon met up and realized that they were meant to be together. Not long after they were an officially couple, they began to hear the sounds of wedding bells off in the distance. Steven proposed to Alexandrea on a hot but gorgeous day at Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, NC and was happy to hear her overjoyed “yes.”

During their wedding celebration, they shared a “cord of three strands” ceremony, a touching first-look, a tasty cake, funny toasts, and a happy bubble exit. The lovebirds now plan to move to Wilmington, NC with their dog Copper in the coming months. They also loved every minute of their 6-day long honeymoon at the Mountain Lake-Lodge in Virginia; the same place Dirty-Dancing was filmed! We wish them all the best and many more smiles and laughs to the newlyweds!
