Alex and James

A glamorous black-and-white affair

It was an elegant black-and-white affair for Alex Trimper and James Hooper when they married and celebrated this past September in Sun Valley. Trail Creek Cabin was the site of a lovely outdoor reception, to which the entire wedding party arrived in a horse-drawn wagon.

Alex and James met working for a hedge fund in Chicago but subsequently moved to Dallas to begin their life together. With a long family history of vacationing in the Valley, the couple decided to marry in a place long associated with family fun. To that end, the wedding weekend included round-robin tennis, golfing, hiking and trap shooting. After all of the reception toasts and cake cutting, the guests took to the dance floor, dancing away the night to a 13-piece band. It was a night to remember!
