In summer 2014, Lexie was scheduled to go to a concert with her sister and sister’s friend – I believe it was a Backstreet Boys concert. And at that concert, the seed was planted – she heard about Thomas, a fellow incoming student at Pitt. And that fall, in Nordenberg Hall at Pitt, their shared dorm building, Lexie and Thomas met. After they met, Thomas texted a friend to express interest in Lexie/get her number (this story was recounted during the best man’s toast at the reception, complete with quoting the actual text from 2014) and the rest was history! Their first date was to see a movie at Soldiers and Sailors, which is across the street from the dorm. They’ve been with each other through college and young adulthood and PA school and finally, on a warm summer day, it was time to make it official.

Lexie and Thomas have such sweet personalities. Some highlights of the day were Thomas’s emotional first look and vows, as well as when he dozed off in the limo after photos and before the ceremony. Another little touch was that their signature drinks were named after their cats – Dewey and Freddy. Lexie and Thomas are so easygoing and their families helped out a lot with the planning of the wedding – these two wanted to make sure to incorporate a lot of flowers and had small table cards with the meaning behind each flower on them for guests. I just love what they did with Fox Chapel Golf Club too – with some vertical floral installations as well as vines climbing up the arches – it was incredible. A summery/garden flower vibe while being traditional and classic is how I would describe the day! This venue is always pretty, but their touches and personalizing made it one of my favorite venues in the area!

A favorite moment I witnessed was when people on the dance floor were grabbing and shaking Lexie’s dress as she danced to the music and then when she and Thomas ran to the doorway and danced and dipped as the cold sparks lit up all around them and the guests were cheering out loud, surrounding them with love and support. Some weddings make you fall in love with weddings and love all over again, and this is one of those. It was an honor to be there on their first day of marriage!

Note to the couple: ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Lexie and Thomas, it was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!
