As soon as my husband and I got engaged, we were immediately faced with this question, “Have you picked a date?!” It was exciting, but stressful to pick a wedding venue and choose a wedding date. 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 – a big thank you to Carolann for curbing my worries and holding my hand every step of the way! 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! Getting married on a Monday increased our vendor availability and made it more cost-effective. 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 ceremony. Sunday evening, we had our rehearsal dinner (at Rooster’s South Park) and a private rooftop soiree (at Le Meridien) Sunday night! By the time it came to our wedding day – I had already visited with most of my guests and could truly just focus on marrying my best friend and enjoying our wedding day the AH team worked so hard to put together for us both! We chose 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. Randall and Jayne Sprinkle (Musically Yours) worked with Scott and me to pick music that was meaningful to us – hearing them play during our wedding was just SO special to me! 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. I am so glad we did this – it also gave me time to take off my heels and put my flats on! No matter where you get married – wear comfortable shoes and make sure you carve out some time for you and your spouse! 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 (“All The Right Grooves”) and we are SO glad we did!! Jill was fantastic to work with and brought big energy to our reception!! The AH venue had everything important to us, and the AH team was able to bring our wedding day vision to life! Carolann was the best wedding day coordinator I could have asked for – she was always within eye gaze and made sure every transition and part of the wedding went smoothly. Our wedding day could not have been more perfect, and I will be FOREVER GRATEFUL to every hand and heart that went into making our wedding day perfect for the two of us.

I can’t say enough of what a wonderful venue AH is!!!! Our son and daughter-in-law were married at Alexander Homestead in October. They made most of the plans and though we were involved in the ceremony and reception, we were not so much involved in planning. However, we were amazed at how well everything ran. AH, staff was completely “on it”… every detail was completely tended to with an exceptional coordinator!! Thousand stars for this place !!! (Also we were guests just 3 weeks later and same… it was amazing … from food to DJ to set up etc. we had a blast.
