The minute Alex’s bridesmaids came in with a portable speaker and played her Taylor Swift playlist, I knew it was going to be a GOOD day. A mash-up of Lover, Lavender Haze, and Love Story was on repeat in my mind as Calvin & Alex made micro- and macro-memories in front of my lens. Their River Farm wedding day, though very hot for a September wedding, was picturesque in every way.
These two lovers have been together over a decade, so you can be assured this was a true celebration. As I’ve gotten to know Calvin & Alex over the past year since their engagement session, I’ve especially come to love the little things about them. Watching them through my lens I could easily pick up that Calvin is quick as a whip. And Alex is true to her nurse nature in her compassion and love for her people. But cutest of all is how they make each other laugh — like from the deep part of their gut kind of laugh.
It’s no wonder what makes these two the perfect match. I think even from scrolling through their images below, you’ll see it too. Some couples just have this zest for life and glow in their eyes for each other. That’s Calvin & Alex for sure.
Some of my favorite moments from their wedding day can be seen in the images below. See if you can find them:
It was an absolute privilege to be the one to capture these moments for them. And I know their adventure has only begun, as they light up this world as husband and wife.
A very special thanks and admiration for Calvin & Alex’s dream team of vendors for making their day so beautiful!
