Sean & Alex


Ronnie Sean Benoit (Sean) and Alexander Ian Hay (Alex) met in Paris in 2001 but have lived in separate countries—the UK and US—over the years. Sean is a trauma and general surgeon and Alex is a media advertising account manager.  

 They got engaged on August 9, 2016 while vacationing in Spain. Sean proposed to Alex in front of friends and family inside a castle in Celra, Spain, which is about 90 minutes north of Barcelona. They got married on July 2, 2017 at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. They later held their reception at the Carnegie Institute for Science in downtown D.C. Both the ceremony and the reception honored the couple’s respective native countries (the UK and US) and featured LOTS of great music. 

 Sean and Alex both love all types of music and TV shows—especially Game of Thrones. Their guilty pleasure when it comes to TV shows is Family Guy. They enjoy going out to eat Chinese, French and Italian food. Their perfect day would consist of going to the beach and then cuddling together in front of the TV.
