    On today’s episode, Rachel talks to a dynamic duo—husband and wife team, Alex and Jon of Madison Grey Media. This videography team is known not only for their beautiful wedding films (check them out on lovestoriestv.com) but, more recently, for their viral status on TikTok. Alex and Jon have gained a loyal following of over a half a million TikTok followers! Because of their success on TikTok, they decided to start a podcast, Give It To Me Straight, which gives their followers even more of this straightforward, funny couple. In this episode, Rachel chatted the two about how they met (Tinder—it does work!), how they got started on TikTok, why it’s important to hire wedding professionals not just for their work and their advice for other couples and wedding pros.
