We had the pleasure of capturing the beautiful love that is shared between Alexxis and Shane at their wedding last weekend. Their love story didn't just begin though, this couple actually got married on their twelve year anniversary! How special is that? Being able to walk through their reception and see pictures of them from over a decade of being together was just such a special touch and reminder how all of those moments led them to this point, to this beautiful life and marriage before them. Alexxis and Shane were so excited all day just couldn't wait to see each other and to finally be married! Trust me when I say the smiles never left their faces and their genuine joy was infectious to all of their loved ones who got to witness the joining of their lives together as one. One of our favorite parts of the day was getting to see the Alexxis and her brother absolutely light up the dance floor. They weren't the only ones though, when Shane's nieces got out on the dance floor they captivated the whole reception.
