I am so excited to welcome Alexa and RJ to the Social Graces family! I cannot wait for their wedding in April. Get to know a little bit more about these two below!!
How did the two of you meet?
RJ and I met in Salisbury, MD while attending college at Salisbury University. I had transferred to Salisbury my sophomore year and was introduced to him through our roommates. At the time, he was dating someone. Therefore, he was just that, “really cute guy” every girl talked about. Months later, I heard he was single. He decided to spend the night out with us and that was when he really hit it off. We danced and laughed and before dropping me off that night, cuddled in the back of a friend’s pickup truck. I remember getting that butterfly feeling in my stomach and thinking, “I could really get used to this.”
Alexa, what do you love about RJ?
I think the number one thing I love about RJ is that he makes me smile. I find myself just randomly smiling at him and feeling so incredibly happy. I love that he makes me laugh and is one of my biggest supporters. He motivates me to chase my dreams and encourages me when I need it. I love that he is sweet and is always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. He is such a selfless human being; always thinking about what’s best for our future together. I love that he loves me for who I am and that I can completely be myself when I’m with him. RJ is an amazing, loving man and I’m so incredibly blessed to have him in my life.
RJ, what do you love about Alexa?
Alexa is the most kind, caring, and beautiful girl I’ve ever met. From the first time I saw her, I was infatuated; and as soon as I got to know her, I knew that she was the one. We have mutual interests and aspirations and when we’re together, there’s never a dull moment. She makes me laugh, drives me to be better, and more importantly than anything else, and makes life fun.
What is something special about the two of you?
RJ and I genuinely enjoy each other’s company. The two of us are completely satisfied with just being together….not having to go out to have a good time. We love to sit together and watch a movie and could crack each other up for hours.
What do you like to do as a couple in your free time?
In our free time, we like to hang out with our 4 year old English Bulldog Cali, watch Netflix movies, take walks around the neighborhood, explore cute towns and take extended weekend trips!

What does your dream wedding look like?
My dream wedding has a vintage, romantic feel. It leaves everyone feeling the love and in turn feeling loved. It’s one where everyone is mingling and laughing, the food is amazing and people dance all night long. My dream wedding is one where everyone is smiling and creating a memory that will last forever.
Why did you chose to work with Social Graces?
I had been looking for event planners for about a month until I stumbled upon Social Graces Instagram. I immediately fell in love with her aesthetic of her page, and felt connected to her right away. I had doubts with some of the other event planners I came across, but with Katie it felt like a natural match. As soon as I contacted her, I could tell she was sweet and knew she genuinely wanted to be a part of our special day. Turns out, I was right, I met Katie and she is the absolute sweetest and compassionate about her amazing work. I cannot wait to work with Social Graces!
