“Michael got a little choked up while he was proposing, and that, of course, brought tears to my eyes,” reveals the bride. “It was one of the happiest moments of my life.”
“The Biltmore Ballrooms is a dream venue for any pride that wants to achieve elegance and glamour in her wedding,” says Alexandra. “It offers the perfect backdrop. It was the first venue we visited and I decided I did not want to look anywhere else.”
“I knew exactly what type of dress I wanted,’ gushes Alexandra. “I took advice from some friends and went to New Natalie’s Bridal shop in Atlanta, and the dress I ended up selecting was the second dress I tried on. I knew immediately it was The One.”
“We used various soft shades of roses, ivory, dusty rose, light pink along with orchids, hydrangeas, calla lilies, lisianthus and foliage stock for the flowers,” says the bride. “I wanted a soft romantic look and my florist nailed it.” Alexandra and Michael hired Darryl Wiseman Flowers to design for their big day.
“Bill Levkoff designed the bridesmaid dresses,” Alexandra shares. “I wanted something classic that they could get some use out of, but also something they could wear again. They were a soft champagne color that fit perfectly with the theme.”
“Being a bride (on the day of) is absolutely magical, especially if you enjoy planning,” Alexandra shares. “The months leading up to the wedding can be stressful, but all of the parties and gatherings along the way make the stress worth it.”
“My mother walked me down the aisle,” Alexandra says. “My parents divorced when I was very young and she was my sole provider my entire life. There was no person more fitting to give me away than my hero and best friend.”
“It was an indescribable feeling looking into his eyes at the altar,” says Alexandra. “It’s not something that is easily captured in words but I knew that I had made the right decision and that we were going to have a beautiful life together.”
“He is a safe person, I always feel safe when he is around,” says Alexandra. “He is a competitive hard worker and will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. He is an intellectual and is always in search of new knowledge to bring to the table.”
“I said yes because I honestly believe that my husband is one of a dying breed. He compliments me in so many ways,” says Alexandra. “He is patient, he is honest and he believes in being a strong leader in our home, which is important to me. He has been doing that since the beginning.”
“I love how hard he works to maintain peace in his life and for those he loves,” says Alexandra. “He is truly a provider and a caregiver. I love that he is patient, and kind heart. He truly is a good person.”
