Lovely Lexi married her best friend, Chris, on Saturday. Congratulations, newlyweds!
Chris and Lexi started dating at Mizzou during Mojo Ad, where I watched their relationship unfold before my eyes. Chris pursued Lex for weeks, even months, before she could see him as more than a friend—a fun, caring, quick-witted and whip-smart friend. After he’d been shot down more than once, I like to think I’m the one who gave Chris the confidence to ask her out for a final fortuitous time. (…He might’ve gotten some liquid courage from a flask in his pocket before he talked to her.)
Two years later, I was honored to stand by her side on her wedding day. Lexi is practically the definition of loyal, someone who’s always prepared with a fresh perspective, a word of advice or a sympathetic ear; without her friendship, I might not have survived graduate school or my adjustment to the working world. I couldn’t ask for someone sweeter to celebrate!
And the party itself was pretty killer, too.
