  • It took place at the Portofino Bay Resort in Orlando Florida… which is a luxurious Italian-themed resort along the Orlando Bay (just outside of Walt Disney World).

 

  • Lex and Erik had been together almost 11 years before getting married!

 

  • Despite being 18 hours from Pittsburgh (where the couple grew up), 250 of their best friends all flew in for the wedding day.

 

  • Keeping the ‘Pittsburgh cookie table’ alive, Lex’s mom baked OVER TWO THOUSAND COOKIES and drove them from Pennsylvania to Florida just for her wedding day!!

 

  • Since the resort was just minutes from Walt Disney World, Lex and Erik gifted their bridal party with Disney passes and spent the whole day before the wedding making memories

 

  • Lex incorporated tons of Disney music into her wedding day. It was magical!

 

  • From the Photographer… This is one of the most genuine couples and groups of friends. All of the happy tears & laughter shots. I WAS UGLY CRYING DURING THE CEREMONY.
