Alexandra & Sonny, Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club



Alexandra and Sonny… easy going (with ULTIMATE style), grateful and wholeheartedly the most genuine couple. Not to mention, their laughs. They were ALWAYS laughing together. It was contagious, when you’re with these two you can’t be anything but happy! We feel so blessed to have had the chance to plan alongside them for an extended amount of time. Yes, the pandemic had a hand on this wedding and I remember where I was when Alexandra and I made the decision to postpone; I was heartbroken. However, Alexandra remained positive and always said, “God has a plan” and did he ever! I remember watching Alexandra and Sonny perform communion and I got teary eyed thinking of the road of this planning process and how they trusted the process and kept Christ in their foresight through every step. I also got teary eyed when I saw the design board Pure Lavish Alexa created transpire on that wedding day – haha! Alexandra and her Mom, Shanna wanted an elegant design with touches of Parisian/Tuscan flare. And with the help of Bloom Box Designs it was exactly that. Guests enjoyed this al fresco evening full of laughter, dancing and the most delish specialty cocktails! I personally loved the added personalization with the “S” on Sonny’s Old Fashioned ice cube! I am so grateful to have met these two and cannot wait for their next chapter. Alexandra and Sonny, you will always hold a special place in our hearts. We love you and hope you enjoy reliving your wedding day with these photos as much as we do! Scroll to see all the gorgeous photos from this amazing day! Stunning portraits by the talented The Wild Romance Photography and design photos by our friend and amazing photographer, Kayla Denae. Thank you ladies for helping us capture such a special and breathtaking day.
