XOXO by The Knot
Sydnee Goodman & Alex Rubens
Sydnee Goodman & Alex Rubens married on June 2, 2018 at The Ranch at Laguna Beach. These avid gamers hosted an incredible, vibrant celebration that truly reflected their personalities, love story and love for video games. Their story began at a Call of Duty Tournament, leading to a first date filled with ping pong, arcade games and savory bites. In the early days of their relationship Sydnee and Alex overcame distance, eventually settling down in Los Angeles, California, where they still continue to call home. Their shared passion for video games and their gaming community has fostered a relationship and newlywed life filled with fun, friendly competition and creativity. On planning their wedding Sydnee shares, "I was determined to make the wedding as much about us as possible, and we met through our passion for games." While their celebration was a perfect reflection of who they are and what they value, their wedding planning journey started off with another direction. On the episode today Sydnee and Alex recount how they had to pump the brakes, reevaluate and then fully create a celebration and a life that truly reflected who they were. This is their story.
