From the minute I skyped Alexa I knew this would be the perfect wedding. She spoke about a classic California wedding with none of the pomp and circumstance: a first look, a guacamole bar, an outdoor reception, churros instead of cake & spending the most time with friends and family. This couple is also 1000% style goals! From Alexa’s Grace Loves Lace dress to Nate’s flower tie, I was in love with this aesthetic! Top top it all off, they are the nicest people you will ever meet and their friends are SO MUCH FUN. 

Although Alexa is a Virginia gal, these two met at Cal Poly Slo and have been in love ever since. La Quinta was their first solo vacation spot so it only makes sense that they would have their wedding at their getaway spot! Their Friday wedding was filled with friends and family from all over the United States! These two tied the knot at La Quinta Resort and Club and danced the night away just feet from where they shared their first kiss. The only thing that could top this was their honeymoon to Jamaica! Here are my favorite shots from the day!
