Alexandra has experience in all areas of events such as venue management, catering, rentals, and of course wedding planning! Alexandra's favorite current wedding trend is seating charts and assigned seating! She thinks its great during COVID times and helpful when keeping a healthy distance from other guests as well as allowing an enhancement of table settings. There are so many opportunities for personalization including custom name plates, escort walls, place settings, etc! We also asked Alexandra what her dream wedding color palette would be and she is loving pops of marigold, pomegranate, lilac, ivory, and leafy green. She loves incorporating cosmos and greenery into floral design!

She cherishes the moment couples see their vision come to life on the big day, signifying their happily ever after. Her favorite current wedding trend is custom champagne bottles! Custom meaning a painted champagne bottle that highlights a special detail about your wedding day. Her favorite are the bottles featuring the couple's wedding monogram.
