We’re getting super excited to celebrate Stefani and Alex this weekend – we’ve been planning their wedding since way back in 2019. Covid-19 caused a couple of date changes, but we have finally landed on their wedding week! We cannot wait for their celebration at The Joule Hotel this weekend, and you are going to want to keep your eyes on our Instagram stories to see their super fun evening unfold. For now, here’s a bit about how these two met with their California engagement photos taken by Shannon Skloss Photography (with a little cameo by Porter, their adorable pup)!
Alex and I met at a festival called Mad Decent Block Party in Dallas in 2015 through mutual friends. We immediately clicked through our love of electronic music. We actually didn’t talk for a bit after that, then I saw my face in his Facebook profile photo with a few of our other friends, so I used that excuse to hop into his DM’s. We casually hung out for about 6 months because Alex told me he didn’t want a girlfriend (LOL), then he finally decided he wanted a girlfriend at the beginning of 2016.
We spent a lot of our dating time together traveling to California to see his family, to music festivals, to my family’s houseboat, and enjoying funky local Dallas bars such as Strangeways. We moved in together in 2018 and got engaged on my mom’s birthday after a fun night at Javier’s in February of 2019. I think he had something more elaborate planned out, but after a few Javier’s margaritas, he was too excited holding onto that ring – ha! After dinner, we went home and he had my favorite Odesza record playing and flowers in our living room, with Porter, of course. It was very intimate, private, and sweet. Who knew we’d have the world’s longest engagement!
