From The Bride:
Alex and I have known each other since high school. After high school I lived in a house with two other roommates and during that time we became best friends. We were friends for years before things turned romantic. I think our story is very ‘when harry met sally.’ We were best friends and then when we became more than friends, “when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” We dated for a year, got engaged,and decided to elope in Oregon. We brought our immediate family and closest friends and tied the knot in the most romantic and intimate place I could imagine. It was absolutely beautiful and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I only wish that every girl in the world could be loved the way that Alex makes me feel loved and beautiful.
