Reviewed on 12/16/2023 by Rachel S.

AS SOON AS we toured the Alexander Homestead (with Nicole) we could instantly see ourselves getting married there. We were impressed with EVERY vendor! It was chilling – the thought of getting married on a historic property in a garden with a string quartet was a dream come true! From the start, their communication with me was personal and professional! To secure this venue in our timeframe, we got married on a Monday evening in October 2022 and that turned out to be the best decision ever! This also gave all our guests (98) time to come in the weekend prior. We held a welcome party on Saturday (at Optimist Hall) followed by a brewery night (at 4001 Yancey) that evening. On Sunday, we had our rehearsal in the afternoon at the AH and brought all our décor. Carolann walked us through the rehearsal so we would all know what to expect and where to go during the wedding party. Sunday evening, we had our rehearsal dinner (at Rooster’s South Park) and a private rooftop soiree (at Le Meridien) Sunday night! We choose to have a live quartet (Musically Yours – recommended by the HA team) during our ceremony and garden party which created the ultimate romantic garden vibe I wanted. After our wedding ceremony, Scott and I joined our photographer in the reception barn so we could have our first moments as husband and wife together, take a breath, have a snack, and see our wedding cake and table decorations before our guests filled the room. There is NO bad place to take a photo at this venue and our photographer (Haylie Noelle Photography) and videographer (Shamus Coneys) captured all the beautiful details of the Alexander Homestead in our wedding photos/videos. We used Rose Transportation to drop off/pick up all our guests. It was so convenient to have everything for our wedding at one location (this can be a BIG time saver too). We were recommended to use their DJ services (“All The Right Grooves”) and we are SO glad we did!! The AH team was able to bring our wedding day vision to life!
