Sarah + Alex’s wedding planning was quite the saga. We all remember what happened in 2020. They had to make some adjustments to their day, but their Detroit Marthoman + Romania wedding really was perfect and I can’t imagine they would change anything about it. It was such a beautiful and loving day with an amazing energy. Thank you two so much for having me and I hope to get you in front of my lens again :)

Here’s more about this incredible couple:

Sarah, Technical Sales Engineer

Alex, Engineer

Their wedding in 3 words: Fun, Laughs, Joy

Sarah’s favorite memory of the day:that moment when everything came together! seeing all our family members when we walked into the reception and everything looked flawless

Alex’s favorite memory of the day:The day went by so quickly! One minute I was saying hellos and another minute I was saying goodbyes! Just seeing all our friends and family at the church celebrating us!

Wedding planning advice for newly engaged couples:I feel your pain planning a wedding during COVID! This is going to be the greatest advantage and disadvantage. Keep it small and don’t go into debit over a wedding party!! I joined 2 fb groups and got so many ideas on small/backyard weddings!! Hopefully they can help you too! Group Number 1: One Love, One Virus, Lets Get Together and Have Two Weddings Group Number 2: Weddings Affected by Corona
