Alex and Tyler met when they were both just 13 at a cookout held for his father when his family relocated to Waxhaw, North Carolina. Tyler was the high school quarterback while Alex was a cheerleader, and the rest is history. Tyler got a baseball scholarship to Coastal Carolina University and Alex received one for cheerleading, so the pair was able to stay together throughout college. After eight years of dating, Tyler proposed at Wahoo’s on the Murrells Inlet MarshWalk in front of close friends and family. The proposal was during CCU’s homecoming weekend, so they were able to have dinner and drinks with their friends.
The December wedding was held at First Presbyterian Church of Myrtle Beach, followed by a reception at Marina Inn at Grande Dunes. The theme for the day was traditional and elegant with colors of navy and gold. The bride’s favorite design elements were the gold trees and cocktail tables from RSG Event Designs, as well as the welcome sign and seating chart they created. Alex wore an ivory mermaid style gown featuring simple but elegant beading on the top and a tulle bottom. The bridesmaids wore navy and the groom and groomsmen donned black tuxedos with navy bowties. Guests got to end the evening with late night bites of hamburger sliders, meatballs and French fries, which was a huge hit.
Alex raves about her venue and vendors, saying the Marina Inn staff was on point for every detail and RSG created the ballroom she had always imagined. “Having all my friends, family and marrying the love of my life made it a perfect day,” she said.
