Alaina and Bill have an enviable ease as a couple. It’s obvious they respect each other as individuals, yet work together as a team. They each have lots of close friends (see photos). So many, in fact, that they couldn’t possibly choose a bridal party. Instead, they invited all of these friends to stand up at the ceremony to give group support for their marriage. I’d never seen it done before, but I do hope to see it again some day. They’re the kind of group that can party, but also bring class and friendship to a serious occasion.
Now, I must mention Alaina’s dress. It was to-die-for. A classic ivory slip dress with a separate layer of intricate beading. Bill didn’t look so bad, either. In one of my fave images below, he and his buddy looked like they stepped off the set of Mad Men.
Congrats to the Fulds on a beautiful day, and best wishes for a beautiful life!
