WOW Wedding: The Whites

Amanda Harper


It all started at a football game.

Lexi and Eric grew up one grade apart in Maysville, but went their separate ways for college. They reconnected at the Auburn vs. UK football game in 2015. “When we started dating and it came time for me to decide whether or not to quit my job and move here... it was the easiest decision I ever made,” Lexi explained. “Kentucky felt like home.”

The couple chose to be wed in First Christian Church in Maysville, where Eric’s parents, grandparents, aunt and uncles all got married. Lexi had gone to youth group and lock-ins at the church, so it was a sentimental location for them both.

Lexi’s favorite moments from their wedding were times they spent together. “It all went by so quickly, but I loved the small moments I got alone with Eric that day,” she said. “We did a first look, and immediately when I saw him, my nerves went away. After the ceremony, we took just a couple minutes to ourselves, which was wonderful.”

Lexi’s mother gave her a bracelet that incorporated both her “something old” and “something blue.” It belonged to Lexi’s great-grandmother. Lexi said, “My Pap gave it to her at her high school graduation. It also meant the world to me to have my college roommate pray over me before I walked down the aisle.”

The reception was held at the Maysville Conference Center. Lexi wanted to keep everything simple, with a beautiful soft blue color scheme. “I knew flowers would be the most important to me because both the church and reception area are beautiful all on their own,” she said. They included a picture area of their parents and grandparents on their wedding days. “It was wonderful because some of them have passed or weren’t able to make it because of COVID.”

“Being a COVID bride was extremely stressful, but at the end of the day, I finally got to marry my person,” Lexi said. Eric agreed, saying, “I just enjoyed getting together with all the people we love in the midst of COVID and quarantine. I can’t think of anything I would do differently.”

While Lexi advises other brides to focus on the things truly important to them and to hold tight to the memories, her best advice is that the most important thing is the two of you: “While the wedding was amazing, being married knocks it out of the park!”
