Creative Team

There’s not enough words to describe all of our favorite things about working with Alexander Homestead. After 17 years as full time DJs and over 1,500 weddings (and thousands of other events), we feel qualified to say that this is one of Charlotte’s best venues – hands down. The staff is absolutely INCREDIBLE – from the ceremony to the reception – they are so easy to work with, attentive, and genuinely invested in making sure every wedding is perfect! Everything is organized, service is lightning fast, and the venue is impeccable. Our weddings at Alexander Homestead NEVER disappoint, and some of our best events have happened inside the walls of that beautiful barn!

We are a family of friends at Pink Petunia. Our little shop has laughter and love everyday because we enjoy what we do and the people we do it with. Jody Beck, Owner and Designer, has 20 years experience building props on commercials and movies. She has spent the last 7 years working with the lovely ladies at Pink Petunia, only to take over the business when Penny Damron decided to retire in 2019. Penny Damron, who is regularly at the shop to offer advice, has 60 plus years floral experience working along side her father since the 1950’s then running it herself. Leigh Webb, Lead Designer, has over 25 years of experience in the floral industry. Leigh owned her own floral shop until the fall of the economy in 2008 at which time she came to work with Pink Petunia. Jane Ellington, Designer, has over 30 years experience in the wedding and event industry. Jane worked with a local event rental company and moonlighted as a Day of Coordinator for 20 years. The last 10 years she has been a part of the Pink Petunia team. With over 75 years of history in the floral and event industry, we utilize our abilities to select the freshest and finest flowers to create your custom design. Working with Alexander Homestead is an extension of our family of friends. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and timeless but more importantly to us, the owner and staff have integrity and genuinely care about their clients as well as their vendors. That is why we love working with Alexander Homestead.

Hi I’m Aryn, owner of Delish Cakery.  Delish Cakery was established in 2009 and we have been baking our hearts out ever since! Each cake that leaves our kitchen is baked fresh from scratch using recipes I have developed over the years to create the perfect slice of cake. Our signature sugar flowers often complete our cake designs to create truly bespoke centerpieces for weddings and special occasions.

I love being on the creative team at Alexander Homestead because I love working with a team that is as passionate about their job as I am.  Creating cakes that bring a couples dream to life is what draws me to baking and I am delighted when I get to work with a team that also is so dedicated to making each event sparkle.  

Randall and Jayne Sprinkle started Musically Yours in 2010. Jayne is a harpist/pianist and Randall plays a unique instrument called a harp guitar. We typically work as a trio with a cellist or as a quartet with cello and violin. We enjoy playing the traditional wedding fare as well as writing our own arrangements of contemporary music.

We enjoy working at Alexander Homestead because they have a team that is experienced and pays attention to the details. This promotes an atmosphere where the couple and their guests can enjoy the day and not worry about the work that goes on behind the scenes
