I've known Paula since middle school (maybe even elementary school!) cause she grew up good friends with my good friend! It was so fun to connect again at their engagement session and wedding. Her joy is 100% contagious!
Alex and Paula met at the University of WI - Milwaukee in front of their friend, and also their wedding officiant. After a bit of convincing on Paula's part, Alex agreed to being friends with her. ;) She compared it to being a lot like making friends in kindergarten haha.
They tied both of their Jewish traditions, and Alex's Russian traditions into their wedding day at the Black Swan Milwaukee in the Third Ward District. I will never, ever forget their reception. People were flooding the dance floor even before they'd had their salads. :) It was an absolute blast to say the least.
