Katie & Marc’s wedding & reception at The Alexander was a great way to kick off a busy Labor Day weekend. From their preparations through their first look and photos around this amazing property, it was a joy as always to work alongside Tiffany & Nate of Nathaniel Edmunds Photography (who referred Katie & Marc to us). When the weather was refusing to cooperate, Maxie Haber and her Alexander staff did a phenomenal job of improvising the timing and order of the ceremony & cocktail hour to make it eventually work inside the ballroom, where Posh Petals‘ decor looked simply fabulous. I loved so many things about the reception, including Tiffany & Maxie joining the hora, the family gift presentation that had me ready to duck, and the superb club DJ/live band mash-up that Marc affectionately calls “Sleepy Floyd and the Indy Local Musician Alliance.”

Andrea & Patrick brought plenty of international flavor (in every sense of the word) to their wedding and reception at The Alexander. From their emotional first meeting captured by Vrai Photography amid the hotel’s stunning artwork through the fun, breezy ceremony, their affection for each other translated clearly to their guests from all over the world. Though for those who needed a little guidance, Pomp & Polish‘s brilliantly designed multilingual program spelled the action out in all languages.
It was at their reception in Market Table that they truly got to show their international colors, through their multi-lingual speeches, two very different Classic Cakes, energetic & eclectic music by Cathy Morris & DJ Krista Lee, and especially the mouth-watering variety of tapas style creations by the ingenious Alexander staff, topped off by favors and a champagne bar featuring Sage’s Simple Syrups. Making all this awesomeness happen within just a couple of months was planner Monica Richard of Mon Amie Events, who thankfully brought me on board this out-of-this-world ride.
