Congress Hotel Wedding Congress Plaza Vanessa + Alex

June 4, 2019

Vanessa + Alex’s Congress Hotel wedding was a perfect day! With her sisters and mom playing Head’s Up while Vanessa was getting more beautiful, Alex was chilling with his brother.

“It was such a momentous occasion. When our parents were in town and wanted to take us out to dinner. Alex nonchalantly said I’m going to bring my friend Vanessa. It was at that point that I knew Vanessa was the girl that he was going to marry.”

Congress Hotel Wedding

The most romantic gift I’ve ever seen a bride receive was the thoughtful gift from Alex to Vanessa. He had started a journal the day that he proposed to her. He wrote in that journal every single day. Little notes about what they did that day and their wedding plans. Vanessa had no idea he had done that and was absolutely moved to tears when she opened up his gift. Alex knocked that gift out of the park!!

At St. Alphonsus, Alex had tears in his eyes as he watched Vanessa walk down the aisle with her Dad. They have such a chemistry together and were making sweet little glances towards each other throughout the ceremony. The kind of looks that only they share. 

Arriving just in time to get the party started, Vanessa + Alex made a spectacular entrance to their Congress Hotel wedding.

“Laugh. And cherish those moments when you can laugh together. And this is the time when I knew Vanessa + Alex were perfect for each other. Vanessa was making breakfast and she’s grabbing the eggs and cracking them. And there’s something wrong, these things are hard. Alex had hard boiled the eggs and put them back in the fridge.”
