Going to the Chapel: Lorri and Alex

Our fabulous cross-country couple, Lorri and Alex, are celebrating their marriage here in Grand Rapids! We are so excited for what she has in store for her guests :) Lorri has incredible taste and style!!

<span class=

Lorri was a merchandise manager at Macy's but has since switched careers to become on to a full time "wedding planner."
Alex is the manager of Communications/Media for USA Hockey in Colorado Springs.

Tell us about the first time you two met!

"We officially met online through EHarmony! Sounds cheesy… but we truly were a perfect match. Our first face to face encounter was at Bar Louie for drinks and fabulous conversation on April Fool’s Day 2008."

What is your idea of the "perfect" date?

"One of our favorite things to do is experiment with new foods and recipes in the kitchen. Afterwards we usually end up enjoying a beautifully cooked meal together. Don’t they always say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach?"

What is the one thing about your wedding you're the most excited for?

"We are so excited to bring our closest family and friends together in one spot to celebrate this special and memorable event. It will be a party we remember for a lifetime."

Tell us about your proposal story!

"Alex completely surprised me with a December 26th proposal. We came home on Christmas day and there were 3 surprise gifts on our fireplace mantle from "Santa". I was instructed not to open these gifts until midnight. The 26th was our dating anniversary so I thought it was a cute little anniversary present. However, after opening a bottle of champagne, champagne flutes and a card, Alex said a few sweet things to his wide eyed girlfriend, pulled the engagement ring off a one of the branches of our Christmas tree and got down on bended knee. I of course said yes and this will truly be an everlasting love. Thanks EHarmony!"
