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.

Brilliant! Amazing! Beautiful! Such a team of pros. They came exactly on time. With just a photo for a guide of inspiration and a quick explanation, Natacha and her lovely make up artist got to work. The hair and make up was way better than I ever imagined and they met the brief perfectly.
“Like me. But better!”
The makeup was flawless and the hair was stunning. It suited me perfectly and I felt my best self on the biggest day of my life … my wedding.
I loved their energy too and it was such a gorgeous morning, getting ready with them.
Thank you and can so highly recommend!
