Alexis Simone Dimes-Smith, 29, met her dream guy, Ty Antoin Upshaw, 38, in the last place she expected — a barbershop. The two fell in love almost instantly and four years later made it official on June 4, 2011 in Atlanta, GA.
When Alexis first slipped into this lovely gown by Demetrios she felt it was almost “too pretty” for her taste. Originally she’d wanted a dress with less embellishments, but when she got home this one was all she could think about. She, of course, went right on back to get it.
Alexis and Ty honeymooned in the Riviera Maya. “It was the most amazing time that we ever had. We laid on the beach, parlayed by the infinity pools, and fell in love with each other more and more each day.”
“There are so many things that let me know that Ty was the one,” says Alexis. “If I had to pick one it would be when I saw how he fell in love with our Goddaughter. The way he looks at her, loves her, and will do anything for her, lets me know he’s the man I want to be my husband.”
A stunning shot of father and daughter as they make their way down the aisle. The couple chose to host an indoor ceremony and reception — and what a perfect space for it. The high ceilings and many windows make it all the more romantic.
At the end of the magical night, sparklers were lit and hands waved as the couple’s friends and family bid them a big happy farewell. See more lovely photos from Alexis and Ty’s wedding over at our partner site The Bride’s Cafe now!
