After 7 years together, Alexus and Cody are finally married! I first met them in college and have only ever known them as “Alexus and Cody.” I was so excited when they reached out about photographing their wedding and just knew it was going to be an amazing day. Let me say, it did not disappoint.
Michigan gave us a cool, but beautiful September day. Before their ceremony, Alexus shared a moment with her mom during bridal portraits. Her Maid of Honor decorated a special chair with a framed photo in her memory.
After their ceremony, we made a quick stop at the bar for celebratory shots before arriving at the brewery for their loft style reception. During the speeches, her sisters busted out a self-written remix to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Hands down the best thing ever. They had everyone laughing after busting out the line, “Just sit right there and we’ll tell you how you ended up at the wedding of the year!” And with that, we jumped into dinner and dancing!
One request Alexus had was getting a photo downtown, just a few blocks over from their reception, so the three of us hopped into the party bus and headed there. I wasn’t familiar with the area but once I saw what she wanted, I totally understood why. The twinkling festoon lights strung over the road, SO GORGEOUS.
