I'm absolutely thrilled to feature this couple on my blog today! Nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, Monrovia was a perfect location for Alex and Amy to exchange their vows. When I first met Amy and Alex, I was immediately captivated by their love story (they fell in love over writing letters to each other!) and the people that they are. It was such a joy to get to know them during this entire process and to be the one to capture their special day! These two are a couple that demonstrate that love never fails and that their special bond is palpable by the way they laugh together, look at each other and enjoy each other.
This day was full of incredible friends and family to celebrate their marriage and the ceremony was full of tender and heartfelt vows that left everyone either beaming from ear to ear or choking back tears. With the Samoan culture from Alex's heritage, the reception was rich with traditional dances, excitement and unexpected surprises! Everyone had a wonderful time as they celebrated the Tauati's into the late night!
Congratulations, Amy and Alex! What a beautiful journey you're on together. I was honored to be part of this special day in your lives and won't forget it. I can't imagine two people more perfect for each other!
