What was most important to you when planning your wedding? We wanted a great venue that we felt reflected us
What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme/style? Rustic Chic
Detail any cultural elements you incorporated into your wedding. We took communion as our faith is an important aspect of our family
What is your favorite memory from your wedding? Locking eyes with each other as Tiffany walked down the aisle.
Why did you choose your wedding venue? The venue had an amazing outdoor and indoor views. We loved the exposed brick, mill chimney, and overall rustic feel of the place.
Describe the ceremony, what made it unique/special. It's hard to say just one thing, but we loved having so many family and friends involved as bridesmaids/groomsmen, officiant, and of course guests.
Describe the reception, what made it unique/special. We were very thoughtful about the music. Each dance and song were matched perfectly.
Tell us about the proposal:
From Alex: I completely surprised her! Which is a huge feat as she is quite attentive and almost impossible to surprise. Nevertheless, I decided to distract her with planning my 30th birthday party. The stress of the party was taking its toll on her and I told her since she was doing such a great job I wanted to treat her to a date night. We went to the Nasher museum on Duke's campus for dinner and to take in an exhibit. I found an exhibit that was pretty serene and decided it was the perfect time to pop the question. And thankfully she said yes (but you knew that).
From Tiffany: Alex had a 30th birthday coming up, and he wanted me to help plan it for his family and close friends to attend. I am also an accountant, so this was around month end time as well as Easter. It was very stressful for me (and he planned it to be that way), and i was so happy to finally have all the plans in place. On April 2nd, 2015, he made plans for us to visit Nasser Museum, on Duke University's campus for dinner and to walk around the art exhibit. He said he wanted me to dress up a little, and i was skeptical about his plans but then i thought okay maybe he wants to go dancing afterwards. So we eat, and are walking around at the exhibits, and unbeknownst to me, he was scoping out place to propose. We finally see a video exhibit with dancing flowers and he takes me in there and we just sit down on the couches and talk about the future for a bit. Next, we stand to leave and he gets down on one knee to propose. I was absolutely surprised about the whole thing! (Its almost impossible to surprise me!) I said yes!! :)
