At Alexander Homestead, we’ve spent a lot of time in 2019 really thinking about the heart behind our business. What is our personality, our vision, our vibe as a business and wedding venue? What do we seek to do for all our couples in the Charlotte area and beyond? It all came down to three words. All-inclusive. Personalized. Stress free.
So I want to spend the next few weeks diving into what these values mean to us, and more importantly what they mean for you.
What do we mean when we say all-inclusive? Well, if you’re planning a trip to the Caribbean, all-inclusive honestly sounds great to me! Everything I need is right here in the resort – beach, food, play, sleep, and maybe a cocktail…or three. And I’m happy to say, that the stress-free picture in your mind of your long-awaited summer vacation is kind of the same idea we want for YOU for your wedding. Ok, we don’t offer beach weddings but hear me out.
The benefit of choosing Alexander Homestead starts with the fact that your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception are all in one location. We transition your day through different spots on our beautiful property, keeping each moment unique and your guests free from the hassle of worrying about logistics of getting from place to place. But what is even more amazing, is that once you hold your date w/AH, we introduce you to an AMAZING creative team of wedding professionals to take care of everything, and I mean EVERYTHING you need for the big day. Except the dress. Because you totally need to have the fun of going out with your crew to try on ALL the things!
We have an awesome vendor team – caterer, baker, florist, officiant, string trio/quartet, photographer, videographer, and can even point you in the direction of hotels we partner with to give you great deals. We can recommend shuttles and transportation, and even hair and makeup. Everything it takes to run the show is at your fingertips.
Hold up. “I don’t need an officiant because I would like my pastor to do the service.” “My cousin is my photographer.” “I believe you when you say that Nona’s has the most amazing cupcakes but I kind of want to experience the fun of having tastings at different shops.” NO PROBLEM. We understand that the concept of all-inclusive might make people nervous or say “next!” because they don’t want to be locked in and forced into a relationship when you’ve had your eye on that dream florist you’ve been following on Instagram (before you even met Mr. or Mrs. Right). So have no fear. Aside from the catering and food, you can totally get off the resort and explore. Bring in your people!
“Alexander Homestead was an amazing venue for our wedding. It’s a beautiful location and it really doesn’t hit you how spectacular it is until the big day. Watching our ideal wedding come to life was a surreal experience, and AH played a major role in that. Their partnerships with different vendors made the planning process so easy. Each recommended vendor knew the venue well, which really put us at ease when meeting with each of them. … Overall, our wedding day was amazing…”—Jason S.
We KNOW couples these days are busy and that planning a wedding can be overwhelming. At AH, you have the benefit of handing over as many of the pieces to us as you’d like in order to make this time before the wedding stress-free and relaxed… kinda just like sitting at the pool with a mojito forgetting all the cares in the world. Because you know everything is getting taken care of for you. It’s all within reach…
Next week we’ll talk more STRESS-FREE, and continue sharing how this all-inclusive idea just keeps getting better and better…
“My wedding was a dream come true thanks to Alexander Homestead. Joy (the wedding coordinator) was AMAZING along with the staff, food, flowers, DJ (All the Right Grooves), and venue. My guests are still raving about it. You won’t find anything better than this and the fact that it’s all-inclusive makes it even better. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I HIGHLY recommend having your wedding here. You won’t be disappointed.” –Trish K.
