Olivia and Alex were my first wedding of 2021 and it was full of so much laughter and joy.

From the moment I met Olivia and Alex I absolutely adored them. They have such contagious personalities and wonderful spirits. There were so many highlights of their day so I’m just going to list some of my favorite moments.

  • Olivia and her girls got ready at Olivia and Alex’s home. They all did each other’s hair and makeup and they looked absolutely stunning. Also, Olivia’s dress reveal?! Not a dry eye.

  • Olivia had told Alex that it’s a tradition to write a note on the bottom of the bride’s shoe for them to read the day of. Alex, misunderstanding the concept, starting writing ON Olivia’s shoe with a permanent marker. Olivia laughed it off and told me it was “so Alex”. She wore the shoes anyway.

  • They did their first look at the Nelson Atkins Museum and read personalized letters to each other.

  • Their ceremony was SO emotional, oh my goodness. A good friend of theirs officiated the ceremony and she absolutely killed it.

  • Olivia and Alex LOVE to dance, and they were not afraid to get down and funky. Also, I want to shout out Olivia’s dance fitness business called Queen Vibes KC: “A wellness movement inspired by black girl magic.”

  • Scroll down for Olivia’s bouquet toss, which might be the best bouquet toss series I have ever taken. It’s literally a meme waiting to happen.

Overall, it was such a freaking great day, and I was so honored I got to be a part of their celebration. What a way to start of 2021.
