The 16 November 2020 was unforgettable for Alexis and Mike
They decide to unite their love, and do a destination wedding in the Riviera Maya paradise, they choose the El Dorado Royal for the venue,
We did a little interview with Alexis the Bride, she shares with us their love story…
*Why do you choose this destination to celebrate your wedding:
I love traveling and I have never been to Mexico. It seemed like it would be a completely different experience than the weddings we were in. It feels like it will be a special time with our loved ones in an intimate environment.
*Where do you visit us from?
New Jersey USA
*How did you meet?
Alexis and Mike met in the wonderful world of higher education at Seton Hall University. They lived in the same building and were both involved in Greek life where they had the opportunity to run into each other from time to time. Lex’s gorgeous eyes and fun-loving disposition were more than enough to lock Mike in. He was smitten. They began dating on November 23rd, 2014 and haven’t stopped smiling since. Four short years later they got engaged and are so eager to start the rest of their lives together. Now six years later they will say I DO!
*What´s your engagement story:
the journey to us….
-Mike, with the help of his wonderful mother, picked out a ring a few months in advance. Then Mike called in the reinforcements, James Meil and Carlie Singler, to help plan the engagement. Four years to the day after Alexis and Mike began officially dating, it was time for a pivotal moment in their journey. After days of unease and a sleepless night for Mike, Lex awoke to a smiling boyfriend wishing her a happy four-year anniversary and inquiring into her shift from the prior night. Despite her plans to “go black Friday shopping” with Carlie, Mike’s encouraging pleas for Lex to take a shower and prepare for the day fell on deaf ears. Something to the effect of, “I’m not doing anything special today” was cited as the rationale. From fear of ruining the surprise, Mike gave up on his hopes for a bathed fiancé and bid Alexis well on her day with Carlie. Not long after the girls departed, James and Mike snapped into action and drove to the inlet where Lex and Mike would hang out under the stars at times throughout their relationship. Carlie expertly navigated Lex through the charade and even managed to at least get her nails done before delivering her to the checkpoint (inlet) where James and Mike were waiting, ring and cameras ready. Afterward, all the families went to Mike’s parent’s house for pictures and celebrating.

Ashley Weese & Kristofor Griffin
03 Octuber Blue Venado
Our beautiful couple is originally from Houston, Texas. Her story, like many today, transcends romanticism to a first approach through social networks. Outside of the ambiguous conventions of the past century where men look for women, now both men and women can connect with a virtual click.
Just as this beautiful couple met on the internet and after a long relationship of 4 and a half years, they took the next step. Ashley was returning from a long work trip and Kris decided to invite her out on a date night, they had a wonderful romantic evening at a restaurant and upon returning home, Ashley got a big surprise, the backyard was completely transformed into a romantic set with lights, roses and a beautiful decoration, there were his friends and family too. “When I turned to see her, she was on her knee and ring in hand, and she said so. I didn’t even see the ring, I could only say YES! ”
A love that began with online chats, soul mates perhaps that the internet made it possible for them to connect. With a beautiful romantic story that now begins a new adventure. And as hopeless romantics, they chose the best location, which is a beach wedding. The best view for the beginning of a life together.
It has been a pleasure to beautify Ashley for her big day, happy that you share your stories with us, we hope to meet and beautify more Brides on your day. We wish Ashley Weese & Kristofor Griffin all the best.
Nuestra bella pareja es originaria de Houston, Texas. Su historia como muchas en la actualidad, trasciende el romanticismo a un primer acercamiento a través de las redes sociales. Fuera de los convencionalismos ambiguos del siglo pasados donde el hombre busca a la mujer, ahora tanto hombres como mujeres podemos conectar con un click virtual.
Así como esta hermosa pareja se conoció por internet y después de una larga relación de 4 años y medio, llegaron a dar el siguiente paso. Ashley regresaba de un largo viaje de trabajo y Kris decidió invitarla a una noche de cita, tuvieron una maravillosa velada romántica en un restaurante y al regresar a casa, Ashley se llevó una gran sorpresa, el patio trasero estaba completamente transformado en un set romántico con luces, rosas y una hermosa decoración, allí se encontraban sus amigos y familiares también. “Cuando gire a verlo, él estaba sobre su rodilla y con anillo en mano, y lo dijo. ¡Ni siquiera vi el anillo solo pude decir SI!”
Un amor que comenzó con chats en línea, almas gemelas tal vez que el internet hizo posible que conectaran. Con una linda historia romántica que ahora comienza una nueva aventura. Y como románticos empedernidos por supuestos escogieron la mejor locación que es una boda en la playa. La mejor vista para el comienzo de una vida juntos.
Ha sido un placer embellecer a Ashley para su gran día, felices de que nos compartan sus historias, esperamos poder conocer y embellecer en su día a más Novias. Les deseamos lo mejor a Ashley Weese & Kristofor Griffin.
