Our mission at Alexander Homestead is to produce seamless all-inclusive experiences. This is accomplished through our high level of expertise, top-rated vendor connections, transparency in pricing, and authentic connection to our clients.

A simple search for “venues near me” and it’s easy to become overwhelmed with all the choices. How do you know if a venue is the right fit for YOU? For some, it’s all about the bottom line, but how do you even know what that will be when no two venues price things the same way. In our 30 years of experience, we’ve sat across the table with thousands of couples, and we know what YOU need. Authenticity. Ease. Customization. Expertise. Fun. If you want to feel like a guest at your own wedding, we are the place for you.

Our 5-acre property includes a beautiful garden, modern indoor event space, pond with waterfall and stream, and an historic house built in 1903. The temperature-controlled barn can host seated weddings and events for up to 215. Alexander Homestead’s city location makes it easily accessible to all. Couples are attracted to ease of planning, but also the endless photo ops at the enchanting gazebo and throughout the garden.

Couples can learn much more about the value of our true all-inclusive venue on our website.

    Best day ever

    Me and my husband Wesley got married at Alexander homestead 2 weeks ago and we have nothing but absolutely positive things to say about this gorgeous and amazing venue. Not only was the venue so incredibly beautiful, but all the folks at Alexander homestead were so very kind and helpful. Any questions/concerns we had were answered/resolved immediately and they were very helpful with the whole entire planning process. The food was incredible and the catering team was incredible as well. All of our guests were blown away and loved the venue and food as well. We are both so happy we chose Alexander homestead for the best day of our lives and cannot recommend them enough!

    Alexander Homestead's reply:

    Ashlee, thank you for this amazing review! We are thrilled to read that you, Wesley and your guests had a great experience with Alexander Homestead! We wish you two all the best!! -the AH Team

    Fabulous wedding

    AH was the easiest way to go to plan a wedding. I literally told them what I wanted and they delivered. TIRZAH is my hero, best friend and role model now. I aspire to be a boss ass bitch like her. She will get your wedding done FLAWLESSLY. WE LOVE HER ❤️ ❤️🥂❤️❤️❤️ The wedding was beautiful and more than I ever could have wanted!

    Alexander Homestead's reply:

    This review is amazing!! Tirzah is such an incredible talent and her wedding expertise is why we have the structure we do. It works so well and we're thrilled to hear you had such a stress-free experience. This is exactly what we wish for every bride and groom! Cheers and please do keep in touch, Jenn! - Nicole and the Alexander Homestead team

    Best Night of Our Lives

    Alexander Homestead's team throughout the entire process planning our wedding was the best. I cant imagine selecting a better venue. Nicole was great from our initial visit and Joy was the BEST wedding coordinator ever. She was so thoughtful, personable, and fun! I appreciate the flexibility with this venue- every vendor is up to you (but they give recommendations if you need them) except catering...but the food was so good!! We had such a blast and beautiful night and didnt worry about anything day of!

    Alexander Homestead's reply:

    You are so kind, Kaleigh, thank you!! Reading that you felt no stress and enjoyed every bit of your wedding makes us so happy. It was an absolute pleasure working with you. All the best in this exciting next chapter! -your AH team
