    From the first time we visited Alexander Homestead all the way through the wedding day we had a fantastic experience! Christi and the team at Alexander Homestead were able to take care of all of our needs and greatly reduced our wedding planning stress. They were always responsive to e-mails and calls and would frequently set up personal visits for us to ask additional questions or revisit the venue. They accommodated changes to our plans and were very flexible in meeting all our needs. We were able to add a photo booth to our reception without any trouble at all. Having Alexander Homestead work with all our vendors was so helpful. We didn't have to look for trusted vendors and could instead rely on their experience with vendors they knew. This also meant that the vendors were familiar with the venue and staff and everything worked smoothly and effortlessly. Christi even handled changes with our vendor agreements for us, allowing us to focus on our wedding. Alexander Homestead even offered wonderful group marriage counseling sessions complete with homemade desserts!

    The food and food service was very tasty and professionally done. The outdoor wedding venue and reception barn were beautiful and a perfect backdrop for our wedding. The DJ, photo booth, baker and florist that Alexander Homestead contracted with were great and very easy to work with.

    All during our wedding day and in the weeks after we kept hearing from our guests about how much fun they had at our wedding and about how the wedding venue was absolutely beautiful!

    Thank you for an incredible experience and for all the amazing memories none of us or our guests will soon forget.

    Exactly what we wanted.

    Having our wedding here at Alexander was the best choice that we could have made. We wanted a personal, non-traditional type low key event and the staff 100% made it happen for us. The process from beginning to the wedding day was seamless. The venue itself, both inside and outside is spectacular, the food outstanding, the music on point, and the staff could not be any friendlier. Our guests couldn’t say enough positive things about their experience there. It truly is a wonderful place to get married. If we had to do it all again, Alexander Homestead would be our choice again as well

    "Exactly what we wanted" - to us, this means the most! We had a blast collaborating with you and your beautiful bride Stacy, making sure it was just what you hoped for. We wish you all the best :) Love, your AH fam
