Like many others, Alex had her dream wedding planned in her head since she was a little girl, and on September 29, 2018, she made those dreams come true. She and Bobby got married at St. Mary’s of the Visitation Catholic Church in Iowa City – the very church Alex’s parents were married at over 30 years prior! Even though they had a guest list of 425 people, it was still an intimate and romantic affair. Alex has a large family, and Bobby’s family traveled from the East Coast to be there, and Alex says that having all those that they love the most at their wedding was what made the ceremony the most special. Alex also had her 85 year old grandmother as her flower girl, which meant the world to the couple to have her as part of the wedding party! 

The reception was exactly the party that the couple wanted. The dance floor was packed all night thanks to the band, Pie in the Sky, and Herky the Hawk made a special appearance – appropriate since the couple met during their time at the University of Iowa and the groom is now on the Hawkeye wrestling coaching staff. 

One special moment that stood out for Alex was when she received a gift from Bobby – a necklace that had a diamond from her late Grandmother’s wedding ring. Alex also wore a gold bracelet that her late Grandmother gave her other grandma to give to Alex on her wedding day. Her grandma had kept this bracelet a secret for 27 years, and it meant so much to have something so special and to feel her late grandmother’s presence on her wedding day! 

When Alex and Bobby got engaged, they knew they wanted a fall wedding. It was a cold and rainy fall day, but Alex still wouldn’t change a thing – she says the day was absolutely perfect. Plus, it made for some cute umbrella photos! Some advice Alex has for future brides: “I would tell them to enjoy the moment.  The whole planning process goes by so fast and your wedding day will go by in the blink of an eye! So many people told me that and I didn’t realize it until the day after ours! Make sure you also spend time with your new husband at the reception, it can get easy to go your separate ways talking to guests and seeing people you haven’t seen in awhile! Soak it all in! and HAVE FUN!”
