Martha Stewart — the reigning doyenne of all things lifestyle — can design a floral arrangement that could bring us to tears. Now, the media mogul's bridal site, Martha Stewart Weddings, is here to serve up some seriously mood-lifting wedding inspiration, whether you're about to walk down the aisle or not.
Alexandria Dean was instantly “all shook up” when she first laid eyes on Brandon Fields at a college Halloween party. After all, he was dressed as her favorite childhood singer, Elvis Presley. Though sparks ignited, Alex and Brandon both dated other people throughout college and parted ways after graduation. But, a year later, their paths crossed again at a mutual friend’s party, when Alex tripped down the stairs and literally fell into Brandon’s arms. The initial spark became a flame as the couple rekindled their feelings for one another and began a six-year romance of “burning love” before tying the knot on October 5, 2013.
The dreamy fairy-tale wedding was “an enchanting manifestation of our love,” said the pair, who also described the San Francisco soiree as a whimsical garden party filled with music, laughter, and a touch of 1920s glamour.
