While most people in college are busy partying and pretending to go to class in between social events, some people are actually busy meeting the love of their lives. Such is the case with Alexis and Braden who met whilst in greek life at Robert Morris University and never looked back. After six years of bliss Braden popped the question at Hoover Damn while the couple was on a Vegas trip. Alexis guesses this is because he knew she would never think he’d ask her there and he loves a good surprise!
The couple chose Red Rock Canyon for their big day which is one of our most popular locations due to its vast skyline and stunning red rocks that always make for beautiful pictures. Their favorite part of the day was actually taking pictures in this gorgeous setting.
“It was very laidback and we laughed and had a great time,” says Alexis.
Alexis found her dream dress in under 20 minutes which might be a record in bridal history! She picked a classic design but gave it an “edgy” flair with accessories like Doc Martins over colorful socks and netted stockings, a leather jacket, and an oh-so-chic vampy lip color. She was blown away by the makeup and hair design by Glammed Up, especially since they didn’t get to do a trial beforehand and nailed it on the first go. To finish this motif we provided a decadently dark bouquet that matched her lip and nail color as well as the gorgeous custom hairpiece by Boho Halo Company. Braden looked classic in his suit but brought his own flair with some Fireball for his bride-to-be and himself to celebrate with! This couple is definitely glad they eloped. Though there’s lots of pressure to have friends and family around and have a big ceremony you have to listen to your gut. “It was the best decision for us and we loved just having each other to enjoy the special day. I wouldn’t have changed it for the world,” says the couple. Here’s to living your best life!
