Holly & Alex’s Wedding at the Iowa Memorial Union in Iowa City, Iowa

Surreal Connection

From the first swipe, Holly and Alex knew that this Tinder match could lead somewhere. Within the first two months of matching and going on dates they were comfortable just being themselves with each other; a comfort that neither of them had ever felt before. Knowing this connection was something special is what created the foundation for their future as Mr. and Mrs. Jensen.

Mountaintop Magic

As the couple celebrated the 2020 New Year in Colorado, Alex popped the big question to Holly in a special mountaintop engagement! Within the month, they had decided on a day and went straight to hiring Soirée to help plan their big day. Knowing they wanted their dream wedding to run smoothly and be enjoyable, a wedding planner was a must. Working with them was such a delight and it was obvious that there was something special between the two.

Cause to Celebrate (and Change)

Originally a 2020 wedding, Alex and Holly weren’t expecting the drastic social changes that came during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. Since many of these restrictions interfered with the vision they had for their dream wedding, the couple opted to push back their date to May 2021. They also chose to only invite a small group of friends and family. Though a smaller wedding, they found it helpful and important to have the pros involved to consider all of the finest details and changes, from picking the vendors, to colors, to our full guidance and support on the day of their wedding. It was so nice to work with such a beautiful couple and to really make sure that one of their most important days went without any problems. We are so grateful to have been there for such a spectacular and gorgeous moment!
