There are TV commercials for every online dating service out there. All you need to do is spend 15 minutes with Jeanne and Alex and you’ll know all you need to know about how successful they can be. Jeanne and Alex have so much in common it’s extraordinary. You’d never think they were linked by an algorithm online, but it must have been a staggeringly good one!
We were honored to spend their wedding day with them, especially after having seen how fun and photogenic they could be at their engagement shoot last fall in Central Park. Jeanne and Alex have an envious relationship and incredibly welcoming families. Their wedding day was a great time, from the bride and groom prep sessions through the reception at the Coral House in Baldwin, NY. Without further ado, let’s get to the pictures!
