Images courtesy of Amy Jordison Photography Dani met Alex met when he started at the same company she worked at. “It was his first day and I happened to be covering reception for the morning,” says the bride. “Alex’s manager left him waiting in reception for a while, so we ended up chatting – and got on from that very first meeting.” Alex popped the question four years later, under the stars at the Grand Canyon. “That’s what we tell people, at least!” laughs Dani. “I’d been excited about it being an amazing stargazing location, but after we’d driven out and found a place to park, we looked up to see nothing but clouds!
