Alicia and Reilly got married at the church where Alicia grew up and where her father is a minister AND he officiated their wedding ceremony. And to add another level to the beautiful family symbolism, Alicia wore her mother’s wedding dress, which was customized and re-imagined by her mother-in-law. Crying yet? Oh, also she got ready at home, with her dog, and crossed the street to get married. The day couldn't have been more perfect, and with such incredible families, this marriage is destined for greatness.
After the ceremony in the church, the guests drove over the hill to Malibu where the reception was held on campus at Pepperdine University, where Alicia is an alum. With so many church and Pepperdine people in attendance, the whole day felt like a big family reunion (which is exactly how weddings should feel)!
