Alex & Jonathan: so this is love

When I tell you that Alex and Jonathan’s wedding was DIY, let me take a moment to explain. There’s DIY, and then there’s Alex and Jonathan’s level of DIY. There are people who are artsy-crafty, and then there are people who look at a beautiful cathedral-length veil in a bridal shop – with lace and a blusher –  and say  “I can do that better.” And that’s what Alex and her mom, Maggie, said. I mean, we’re talking real skills here! Her mom also sewed all of the groomsmen’s vests and pocket squares, not to mention creating unbelievable silk floral bouquets for the girls that looked so real that we had to touch them to see if we were imagining things! And Maggie’s not the only talented lady to contribute to Alex and Jon’s day. Alex’s bridesmaid Julie, a fashion designer, created Alex’s bridal shoes just for her Cinderella theme, and also to be her “something blue.” Check out their photos below!
