Alexa and Jeantel wanted romance and whimsy for their wedding, and they found it at Twin Oaks Garden Estate in San Marcos.
The pair through a mutual friend and have been together ever since. When Jeantel joined Alexa’s family for a vacation in Maui, he brought along a very special item in his luggage. “He and I decided to wake up early one morning and go for a hike, and he proposed on the hike,” Alexa says. “Our very first date was a hike, so it was an awesome way to get proposed to.” They decided on Twin Oaks because it evoked a secret garden path, complete with meandering paths and lush greenery. For her ensemble, Alexa knew she wanted her look to echo the setting. “I am not a huge fan of structure, I wanted loose curls in my hair and my bouquet to look like I grabbed a big handful of flowers and headed down the aisle,” she says.
