Alexis and Amar’e did not know what the other was wearing, so it was up to stylist Rachel Johnson to pull the looks together in a cohesive way. Alexis chose a gown from J. Anton (her veil was actually tulle from the original dress) and had it customized with more gold accents. Amar’e’s jacket had a story of its own. “Alexis and I were texting back and forth during the Grammy’s and she loved what Wiz Khalifa was wearing that night. And it was a white jacket with a black shawl collar. And so that was also part of what I pitched, and that’s what Amare gravitated towards,” says Johnson. “But because Alexis wanted everything to be embroidered and feel regal, and somewhat over the top, we went with an embroidered back detail. It probably took about two months for it to be created, and it arrived maybe two weeks before the wedding. The bridal atelier Ever After applied all of that bead work and the result was literally icing on the cake.”
