Paige & Cynthia - Apex Wedding
After one Tinder date it was over - these two fell madly in love and the rest is history. Luckily for me I got to watch their love blossom from the comfort of Instagram and had been an advocate for their adorable relationship from day one.
Even though Paige and I grew up in the same town, in the same social circles, we had never officially met, but had been online friends for a few years. Once these two got engaged, she reached out to me to capture their day and I was so thrilled I literally jumped up and down and bragged about it for months.
These two were the coolest, badassed, amazing women I had ever met and I was so thankful they asked me.
Fast forward to their wedding day, where they got married at Paige’s family home in Apex (can you believe that) and her father made ALL the wooden decor, from tables to the arbor to even THE BAR! He also catered the event using his restaurant that he owns that I highly recommend, and you’ll definitely see a few photos of him requesting that everyone come take shots in the barn (oh yes, I did partake)
Some of my favorite elements of the day were from the stories everyone told about Paige and Cynthias love, including their ceremony where they talked about “Te Ceilo” which means “I Sky You”., or which they both have tattooed on their hands. which comes from the Frida Kahlo poem where she compares her love to the Sky to represent infinite vastness of love.
These ladies not only love deeply but party hard and I loved every minute of their super personalized reception, including a replica cowboy boot disco ball that they danced under on their first date, to the Til Death Jackets, and glowing neon sign, and SOOO SOOO MUCH MORE.
