A Real Wedding in Ash Spring
Love for Guns Built the Bond
Love stories are often expected to be spectacularly romantic and be the swept-me-off-my-feet type. But finding love in ways otherwise does not make it less profound. Alexis and Anthony may have started out with just having a simple conversation and may have less romantic type of hobbies, but the feelings and the interests they share truly bond them as a couple.
The twosome met at a Walmart parking lot and spent their first date having coffee in Anthony’s truck while engaging in a simple chat. Their love for guns is what hooked them to each other. They later discovered how much more they have in common— they share the same sense of humor, a penchant for getting tattoos, and a deep love for their families. This perhaps explains why they were inseparable ever since and why their relationship eventually led to tying the knot.
The breathtaking views of the Red Rock Canyon served as the backdrop to their I dos. They were both stunning in black. Anthony looked dashing in his sleek black suit and Alexis looked elegantly sexy in her high leg slit dress. The teal and maroon accents of the bride’s bouquet added pizzazz to the scene.
The couple allowed themselves to slow down and the serene views of the location helped them enjoy the moment. They held hands as they exchanged vows and thought of nothing else but each other that day.
Grand gestures add spice to relationships, but what matters more is the couple’s commitment to keeping a meaningful, loving relationship. For Alexis and Anthony, it is ‘til death do they part.
