Real Wedding: Alexandra & Nicolas

Real Wedding: Alexandra & Nicolas

Alexandra and Nicolas’ wedding was all about creating an event straight out of a fairytale. From the perfect princess wedding dress to the classic getaway car, this wedding day was quite simply dreamlike. The beautiful outdoor ceremony started the day off on a picturesque note filled with love and loved ones. (A hummingbird flew by as they exchanged vows – I kid you not!) Following an intimate and personal farm-to-table dinner that began with an amuse bouche featuring morel mushrooms foraged by the bride’s parents, guests danced the night away in an open-air tent lit with the warm glow of candles.

 

Alexandra always dreamed of being a princess on her wedding day. When she first saw this Lazaro gown, she knew it was perfect for her.
