Alexander Homestead Wedding

There are so many great wedding venues in and around Charlotte, seriously so many! But if you’re looking for a place that lets you have a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and beautiful outdoor portraits, Alexander Homestead is one of the best Charlotte wedding venues in town.

From the gorgeous gardens to the historic home and amazing reception hall, it is the perfect venue for an intimate wedding feel, no matter the size of your guest list. It is such a hidden gem that if you’re from the Charlotte area, you’ve probably driven past it without even knowing it was there — hello, secret garden vibes!

When we first met Emily & Xavier, we hit it off immediately. We had a coffee date, ordered the same drinks, and I remember leaving the meeting just SO excited to be working with them. The only thing that made it that much cooler was when they told us they’d be having their wedding at Alexander Homestead. I was born and raised ONE mile from the venue, driving past it every day on the way to elementary school, and when they decided to hire us, we just so happened to be living in that same house. We joked a couple of times that we never thought we could walk to a wedding, but in all honesty, it felt like our photography career finally came full circle. 

As soon as we arrived at each of their getting ready locations, their laid-back personalities radiated throughout the space, creating the best atmosphere. And even though they were both so calm, you could see the excitement every time they spoke. Xavier got ready at an Airbnb with all of his groomsmen while Emily was surrounded by all of her ladies at her parents’ gorgeous home on Lake Norman. Then, once they were all set for final touches, they headed to the venue. 

Alexander Homestead has such a gorgeous bridal suite with all of the most delicious natural light you could ever want. It’s spacious enough for all of your most important people to be with you without sacrificing the breathing room, haha. Not to mention, it is perfectly situated for first looks, first touches, and to hide out before walking down the aisle. 

These two truly made their day theirs, and Alexander Homestead was the perfect place for it. Days like this make us feel so lucky to be wedding photographers in Charlotte, Asheville, and all the beautiful areas around us.

Alexander Homestead is hands down one of the top 10 wedding venues in Charlotte, in our opinion, at least, haha. And we have a feeling that even if you were to ask us for a recommendation for a Charlotte wedding venue years from now, it would still be on our list.

Anyways, enough from us. Have fun checking out Emily & Xavier’s beautiful wedding day at Alexander Homestead. Oh, and just because you’re laid back, it doesn’t mean you can’t throw down on the dance floor — just ask Emily!

Emily chose to do a first look with her dad and it had everyone in tears.

These two opted for a first touch instead of a first look and it was so so special. They talked to each other, held hands and were able to share in the excitement before walking down the aisle.
If a first look isn’t for you, this can be such a beautiful alternative!

To memorialize her Grandfather, Emily had her Grandmother tie his wedding ring to her bouquet.
