The Love Story
Alexis and Brandon first met in highschool and dated briefly, but their love story really took off during Alexis' senior year when Brandon was already in college. After 4.5 wonderful years of dating, they got engaged and decided to start a new chapter together by moving from Iowa to Florida.

The Planning Experience
Since Alexis' senior year of high school, she knew she wanted to have a destination wedding after attending her cousin's special day and hearing her thoughts about not having a traditional hometown wedding. With all the great reviews and guidance from their Certified Destination Wedding Specialist, Sharon, they chose their dream venue at Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya in Mexico!

The Celebration
Their special day was simple and elegant, yet they included personal touches that made it truly theirs. Alexis' aunt and mom worked their magic and crafted stunning bouquets for the bridesmaids. For their reception, they transformed the venue by adding fairy lights, creating a dreamy atmosphere. During the ceremony, you could physically feel the love in the air as they exchanged vows, making it a memory they will never forget! One of their favorite moments from their celebration was taking an excursion to Xel-Ha with all of their loved ones. It was the perfect way to relax, have fun, and spend time with their guests.

The Memories
To sum up their destination wedding in paradise, they describe it as "absolutely positively perfect." From the twinkling fairy lights, excursions, and heartfelt vows, their wedding was truly magical. They loved their big day so much that they plan on coming back for their one year anniversary! 

Advice For Future Couples
Alexis and Brandon's biggest piece of advice is to stay calm and remember the experts do this everyday, so it will all come together. Have faith and be patient during the planning
