These two met while they were playing softball in a sober tournament. They had coffee at 10 a.m. on a Sunday morning because Alex couldn’t schedule another time for him, but Lew still asked her for a second date in the middle of that coffee date—and she simply couldn’t turn down that kind of confidence.
Lew proposed last June on the Empire State Building. Even though Alex knew it was coming, she didn’t try to look any different as they headed out together, walking around and looking for a good place for a photo before they settled on the northwest corner. When she turned around to take the photo, he was down on one knee.
Now, while Alex works in e-commerce for fitness and other consumer products and Lew works as a drug rehab counselor, both of them are hoping to move into marketing. They love the people they work with, but want to move on to bigger and better things. The bride and groom have supported each other through their search for more meaningful careers. But while they are still working on changes in their careers, the change in their marital status went off wonderfully!
Six months after their engagement, these two decided to elope, and I was honored to be there for this new adventure for the two of them. I especially loved the moment when they walked out of City Hall into an explosion of confetti. The look on their faces was priceless.
We went out to the city for a few more photos after that and even stopped by Grand Central Station. The photograph of the two of them standing together, clearly wrapped up in nothing but each other while the hustle and bustle of New York carries on around them, is truly remarkable.
Lew & Alex, thank you for letting me be part of this new and exciting chapter in your lives. I wish you both the best of luck as you find new changes and new adventures together.
