Elegant Autumn Wedding | Davis Park | Anderson, Indiana

 Alexis + Scott

As soon as I walked into Alexis’s grandparents’ house I immediately felt at home. Halloween decor was carefully placed through out the various rooms, a full spread of snacks and sandwich supplies lined the kitchen countertops ready for anyone who might be hungry to enjoy. Picture frames proudly held photos from Halloween’s past of all of the grandkids and the playful barks of two happy dogs called from the back yard. Alexis’s family gathered in the living room talking and laughing while they waited on Alexis to arrive. The home was full of so much excitement and anticipation for the day ahead.

Before long Alexis arrived and it was time to put on her stunning dress. Her amazing mama, Michelle, helped her - carefully securing each delicate button while her sisters and grandmother looked on. Next her sisters, Mercedes and Sydney, who looked amazing in their sparkly jewel toned dresses,  stepped in to help with her jewelry. One thing I absolutely LOVED about this family, was seeing how much they love one another. Moments before Alexis had arrived, her sister and grandmother were in the kitchen making her lunch so that she’d have something to eat before the day got busy. As her sisters slipped on her bracelet and connected the clasp on her necklace, they laughed and joked together and everyone was totally in the moment. I could see how happy Sydney and Mercedes were for Alexis and it was so very sweet. Her grandmother helped her put on her veil as the final touch. It was a beautiful moment, and the love that these two women have for one another was so evident. It was incredible. 

Before leaving the house, the ladies planned a first look for Alexis’s dad, Matt. Father-daughter first looks have easily become one of my favorite wedding day activities, and this was no exception. It was beautiful to witness.

As Alexis and her family arrived at Davis Park prior to the ceremony, the first looks continued. Only on this go around, it would be her groom that would be seeing her for the first time. As Alexis walked towards Scott, the lace of her dress caught a few crisp leaves with it as she approached and the warm autumn sun illuminated her veil. Once she was in place, Alexis called Scott’s name and as he turned to see her a giant smile formed on Scott’s face. They took a few moments to soak it all in. Even from several feet away I could feel the happiness radiating from these two. After a decade together their moment had finally come.

Next it was time for the ceremony. Scott’s awesome mom, Becky, pinned his boutonnière on his lapel, the final touch before he’d wait for his bride at the alter. The intimate ceremony was beautiful. The triangular window of Davis Park provided a backdrop of peaceful trees and wildlife. Just before they sealed their vows with a kiss, “Do You Remember” by Jack Johnson played while Alexis and Scott held hands and enjoyed the moment together while guests looked on. Everyone in the room was absolutely thrilled for these two!

Following their ceremony, Alexis and Scott invited their guests to join them for cake and good conversation. Everyone enjoyed the cake, baked by Alexis’s grandma (who I just adored!) and decorated by her great aunt. How cool is that?

Before leaving the park, Alexis and Scott stopped for just a few more photos to remember their wedding day. I don’t think these two stopped smiling once! This wedding was a special one for me. I grew up with Scott, racing Soap Box Derby. We even traveled to the Soap Box Derby World Championships together, and at eleven years old I was a little nervous to be away from home for the first time. Scott picked up on that with out me ever having to say a word and went out of his way to make me feel at ease. He’s a really great person, and always has been. So to see him so happy and with the love of his life on his wedding day just filled my heart with joy! Alexis and Scott deserve all the happiness in the world and I am so glad that I got to be apart of their day.

Congratulations you two!

- Alison

P.S. A special thanks to my best friend Megan who joined me for Alexis and Scott’s wedding and helped me so much all day long. She is the best!
