I am excited to introduce you to Maddie and Alex! We can’t wait for their wedding on Saturday at Strong Mansion. It has been a wild COVID journey to make this wedding day come to life and we are thrilled!! Learn more about this wonderful couple below!
How did the two of you meet?
Oh boy! That is always a long story with us. The short version is boy met girl (through mutual friends at a party in DC), boy fell in love with girl that same night and told her friend he was going to marry her. Girl put boy in friend zone and the boy chased the girl around for months hoping to break through and eventually the girl gave in :)
Maddie, what do you love about Alex?
There are so many things about Alex I love so it's hard to choose but I will try! He is the biggest goofball who always keeps me laughing but at the same time he is incredibly smart and sensible. He keeps me grounded when I get all stressed out (which tends to happen often during this wedding process) and he is always able to bring me back to reality and see the big picture. He also is the most caring and humble person I know - always ready to do anything for a friend or family member no matter the burden on him. He is also pretty easy on the eyes.
Alex, what do you love about Maddie?
Maddie is one of the smartest and kindest people I know. She pushes me to be a better person every day and she laughs at my jokes even when they aren't funny. We are working on her football knowledge but anyone who is willing to watch an Ohio State football game with me can be my partner for life.
What is something special about the two of you?
The most special thing about our relationship is that we feed off each other's energy. We are also both very goofy people who are always looking to have fun. We always find a way to turn a bad situation into a memorable experience and having the other around always makes life better.
What do you like to do as a couple in your free time?
We like to work out together; we both come from athletic families so staying fit is something we have always had in common and enjoy doing together. We also love to unwind with movies particularly anything superhero related and hang out with our friends while having a couple of white claws.
What are a few of your favorite things?
Chick-fil-a - great service, great food, how could you not love this place. Also being out in California we love our mexican food (California burritos only for Alex) and acai bowls. We also love all sports particularly football for Alex (Go Bucks!) and basketball (Go Duke!) for Maddie. Our favorite drinks include any hard seltzer! We are always looking for new brands and types to try in the search of the perfect drink.
What does your dream wedding look like?
A big party with all our friends and families celebrating love! We imagined an outdoor wedding surrounded by a lot of beautiful nature and a giant dancefloor for everyone with the drinks flowing but other than that we didn't have many ideas! We never really had a dream wedding mapped out so thank goodness for Katie who was able to pull out what we wanted and add some design aesthetics to it to make it come alive. I know the wedding she put together is going to be everything we could have wanted and more :)
Why did you choose to work with Social Graces?
Honestly the minute I talked to Katie I knew she was the one as cheesy as that sounds! She is so sweet, incredibly creative, obviously very organized and fun - she makes planning a breeze and she is always there to answer any of my crazy questions or random thoughts. She has been an angel especially during this time with all the uncertainty surrounding venue rules, state guidelines and best practices during a pandemic. I always look forward to our calls because she genuinely feels like a friend at this point and I couldn't be happier with our choice! She always goes above and beyond and I am so excited to have her at my wedding and see it all come alive soon :) and give her a big hug!
