Every wedding is special, but since they have made this work while being apart makes this union even more special! So honored to be helping them. Read more about Lexie and Wesley…
How did you meet each other?
I was living in Atlanta and Wesley was living in Raleigh. My best friend was dating Wesley’s best friend. They kept telling each of us that we would be a perfect match and wanted to set us up. They planned a weekend for Wesley to come to Atlanta. When we met, it was basically love at first sight. He left town that Sunday and we were already planning the next trip to see each other!!
When did you get engaged, and how did he ask?
We were about to go on a week vacation in Mexico with his family. Since we lived 6 hours apart, we were so excited to have seven days together!! I was working the weekend before we left for Mexico. He picked the ring up from the jeweler at 6:00 on Friday afternoon and left early Saturday morning to drive to Atlanta. He surprised me when I got home from work.
What do you two do for a living?
I am in Residential Real Estate and Wesley is in sales.
What are some of the activities that you like to do together as a couple?
We both love the outdoors. We love everything associated with the water. Snow skiing out West is our favorite winter sport. Traveling and exploring new cities is something we both really enjoy. Hiking and brunch on Sundays is a great weekend past time.
Why did you choose The Farm at Old Edwards as your wedding location?
From the beginning, we knew we both wanted an outdoor ceremony and reception. We wanted a wedding different from that of our friends. Since I am from Atlanta and Wesley from Raleigh, we decided on a destination wedding. When we first pulled up to Highlands and looked at the Farm, we just knew it was the perfect place!! Highlands is magical—from the quaint little town, to the gorgeous landscapes at the Farm, to the rustic and natural old barn for the reception, we knew we found Camelot!
When you think about your wedding, what are you most excited about?
Of course I can’t wait to marry Wesley. But I think the most amazing thing about a wedding is that for the only time in your life, you will be surrounded by all your family and friends who care so much about you.
What do you love about each other?
Lexie: What I love about Wesley is… Wesley is so caring and kind. I know he loves me with all his heart and would do anything in the world for me. The most important thing I love about Wesley is that he makes me laugh. There is never a dull moment with him. We have so much fun together and this is what I think will get us through the hard times.
Wesley: What I love about Lexie is…Personally, I will never forget the first time I caught her eye. What a special person, she pulled up glowing for our first date. Initially I was nervous; however, after I was immersed in the web of her comfort and laughter I felt as though I had known her for years. She is the most caring and loving person I have ever been in contact with. Finally, I can’t imagine my life without such a wonderful person.
