On May 31st at 4pm, Kristel walked down the aisle at Old Cutler Presbyterian Church in the Davis Chapel in Miami, Florida. This wedding features polka dots (again!) but also features some touches which are very much Alex and Kristel!
The couple first met in high school, although their paths rarely crossed. He was a guitarist and loved to act, she loved to work in TV. When Kristel was twenty she walked into a guitar store Guitar Centre and spotted Alex who worked there. Their friendship began and after a little of what Kristel calls ‘Myspace flirting” they fell in love and are now husband and wife!

Kristel wore thebeautiful polka dot Rasharna Maggie Sottero gown in white and looks absolutely stunning in it!
While the groomsmen wore their suits and black converse sneakers, Alex wore a red daisy.
She arrived at the ceremony in a Mini Cooper.
During the ceremony, Alex played Kristel a song he wrote especially for her. The wedding took on a very musical feel with the couple choosing a string quartet to play their ceremony music. Kristel walked down the aisle with her father to “Something” by The Beatles.
The couple chose to wed in the church as it had a clean simplicity about it. It features a large cross illuminated from behind. Kristel had watched her best friend marry there in 2004 and Kristel knew immediately that the church was where she would marry.
The couple chose “All You Need Is love” by The Beatles to take their first walk as husband and wife back down the aisle.
Gorgeous shots- love the flare! (Check out Kristel’s shoes! More on those in the next post!)
The reception followed at Coco Plum’s Woman’s Club, a building built in the late 1800’s. Chosen for its high ceilings and stage the venue matched the couple’s personalities with it’s old world funky feel. The high ceilings also echoed those of the church.
The couple danced to “Love Song for You” by Mike Coia from the band in which Alex plays.
Their first dance song (I listened to this while I was looking at Kristel and Alex’s wedding photos and it captured the moment perfectly!) Check back later today for the detail shots!
