Hailey was attending undergrad at the University of Texas at Austin when she first met Alex. As a pre-law student, Hailey competed in a mock trial competition against other pre-law students across the state. One of the students on the opposing team was a guy named Alex from Baylor. Even though they competed against each other in the tournament, they hit it off, and stayed in contact as they finished their undergrad degrees.

Not long after, both Alex & Hailey found out they were accepted into Baylor Law School. Hailey told us that since she didn’t know anyone else in her new school, she started hanging out with Alex. And luckily for them, it was a friendship that grew into something more throughout their time at Baylor Law.

While in law school Alex & Hailey both worked in the 10th Court of Appeals at the McLennan County Courthouse. So when these two Sweethearts decided to get married, the 10th Court was the obvious place to start this next journey.

Alex & Hailey’s wedding was beautiful and simple. The location spoke to their shared history and served as an important marker in their relationship journey while at Baylor. The judge who presided over their ceremony was a favorite former professor from BU Law. Their closest family and friends joined them for an intimate Friday afternoon ceremony, and then the party moved to a local favorite restaurant to celebrate.

It was a wedding day perfect for them, and perfectly them. And we were so honored to be a part of it.

Dear Alex & Hailey,

We pray that when you look at these photos from your wedding day, you will be taken back to those special moments and remember the love, joy, and happiness you felt that day. May you have many more years journeying together!

Love, J&M
