You couldn’t ask for a lovelier summer day for this South Coast Botanic Gardens Wedding!
Samantha and Alec’s big day began right where their love story started, Loyola Marymount! These two met as neighbors at school and their friendship quickly blossomed into love. After years of dating, Samantha and Alec’s shared love of travel brought them to France. While strolling Trocadéro Gardens at twilight, Alec proposed to Samantha just as the Eiffel Tower began to sparkle in front of them! The icing on the cake? Samantha’s little sister and best friend were there to capture the moment. Certainly a true fairytale engagement!
We love that Samantha and Alec’s engagement story is set in a beautiful garden and their wedding in another! A South Coast Botanic Gardens Wedding is a Figlewicz Photo favorite, and Stacee captured every perfect detail! This wedding was fun and intimate, so the day was filled with laughter and love!
Samantha loves how loyal Alec is “I love that Alec is driven, a good listener. He is always there for me through little things and through very big things. I always feel loved and supported in all aspects of my life, from my career to my various passion projects.” In addition to her passion projects, Alec adores Samantha’s personality. “She is a driven, sophisticated women who has various interests and passions that she is relentless in achieving!” Samantha and Alec’s shared values, interests, and life goals are a beautiful foundation for their marriage. We are so excited to see how their future together flourishes!
We wish these two a lifetime of adventures and collecting passport stamps. More tender moments in gardens around the world, too! Samantha and Alec, thank you for sharing your love story with Figlewicz Photo!
