at Alexander Homestead

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 a 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 couple our experience by listening to your needs to deliver you the best possible experience.

Authenticity. Ease. Customization. Expertise. Fun. If you want to feel like a guest at your own event, you’ve found your team and venue.
