Taylor & Chase

Alexias Bridal Boutique Real Wedding 10

Taylor and Chase originally met at a mutual friend's birthday party in Washington, D.C.  They hit it off from the beginning, and shortly afterwards started to date.  The couple's wedding was earlier this Fall and we're so excited to share some images and details from their big day!

The wedding took place at a gorgeous Manor on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.  Taylor and Chase's entire families stayed at the Manor's main house the days surrounding the wedding, making for a truly memorable weekend.  The ceremony took place outdoors with gorgeous views of the shore in the background.  The couple's puppy acted as the "puppy of honor" for the ceremony and was escorted by Chase down the aisle!  Immediately after the ceremony, Taylor & Chase went into the library of the house to enjoy a celebratory cocktail away from the photographer, guests, and family so that they could truly take in the moment.  The guests enjoyed an evening of unforgettable food and dancing that flew by way too fast.  The reception even included unique details such as a "chambong" bar that opened towards the end of the evening and was enjoyed by everyone from Moms to Grandparents!

Taylor's gown was a silk column dress featuring a sculptured origami bow accent and detachable train by New York bridal and celebrity designer, Austin Scarlett.

The weekend would not have been possible without the team of vendors who assisted with the wedding.  The couple felt especially comfortable around their photographer, Erin Taylor, who has worked with them in the past on family vacations and even for their spontaneous engagement photos.

Taylor and Chase utilized Eastern Shore Tents and Events, as well as Sherwood Florist, to help transform the blank palette of the Manor into the perfect setting for their wedding weekend!

Congratulations Taylor & Chase, your wedding looked absolutely stunning!

Margaret & Greer

Alexia's Bridal Boutique Real Wedding

How many people can say they met “the one” in fourth grade!  That’s exactly what happened for Margaret and her husband Greer.  The two met each other while in elementary school, started dating in high school, and the rest is history!

The two had an unbelievable team of wedding vendors to help make their special day a reality.  Below are some of our favorite highlights from their wedding.

When shopping for her gown, Margaret first started in larger cities, but didn’t have the best experiences.  She visited Alexia’s, and fell in love with a beautiful gown by New York designer, Austin Scarlett.  The gown was a custom cap sleeve trumpet gown with buttons extending the length of the train.  Margaret’s wedding day look was completed by Teighla Norris and Ashley Calderwood who styled her hair and makeup.

The moment that Margaret will never forget from her wedding is seeing Greer’s face as she walked down the aisle towards the alter.

Margaret and Greer held their wedding reception at the gorgeous Carolina Country Club in Raleigh.  Brenda Whitley, their wedding coordinator, has been with the club for years and is such an expert with the whole process, which resulted in the couple having a stress-free day.

Alexia's Bridal Boutique Blog 1

Kasey and her fiancé, Jefferson first met one another years ago while living in Pinehurst, NC.  They since had relocated to Raleigh and Greensboro respectively.  They reconnected by chance and quickly became close friends.  While at one of our favorite Raleigh restaurants, Second Empire, Jefferson popped the big question and they became engaged!

Kasey and Jefferson celebrated their wedding in an intimate ceremony at the Proximity Hotel in Greensboro.  Kasey’s gown was a beautiful embroidered sheath style by Theia Couture.

Below are some stunning images from the couple’s wedding day!

Rustic Elegance: Jessica and Josh's Fearrington Inn Wedding

Alexia's Bridal Boutique Real Bride 1

We are so excited to share some gorgeous images from Jessica's wedding this past Fall.  Jessica and her fiancé, Josh, went to the same high school when they were growing up, but they actually did not know each other at the time.  They met years later through mutual friends.  Josh popped the question on a cruise to the Bahamas as soon as they stepped on to the ship!...a romantic beginning to what would be a beautifully romantic wedding day!

Jessica's wedding took place at the fabulous Fearrington Inn in Pittsboro , NC.  The couple did not let Hurricane Joaquin slow down their wedding day ceremony and reception!  Jessica was absolutely stunning in the "Chantilly" gown by Claire Pettibone.  The necessary cover of umbrellas made for amazing wedding photos, and the rain did not dampen the bride's mood at all...she looked radiant!!  

The reception buzzed in the rustically elegant Barn at Fearrington.  The couple enjoyed dancing and celebrating with their close friends and family.  What a perfect ending to a beautiful day!

We wish our former Lana Addison manager much happiness in her marriage!  May Jessica and Josh's life together be as blessed as their picture perfect wedding day!

Steph Diggs: Edgy Champagne brunch

Alexia's Bridal Boutique Real Bride 1

Stephanie first met her husband, Daniel, seven years ago. The two both work in the music and creative industry in Nashville focusing on photography, video, and film production. Stephanie has been playing the violin since she was six and loves the symphony, so it was only fitting that Daniel proposed to her under the downtown Nashville skyline prior to a Dvořák performance by the Nashville Symphony.

Since Stephanie lived in Nashville, she always thought that she would find her gown at one of the local boutiques, because her photography work had provided her the opportunity to shoot many weddings in the area. She first learned of Alexia's when she came across their Instagram page and had been following the boutique for some time. Stephanie decided to visit her Mom, who lives in the Triangle area, to inform her of the exciting engagement news. At the last minute, Stephanie decided to setup an appointment at Alexia's so that she could include her Mom in her gown shopping experience.

The bohemian, flowy style of wedding gowns is very popular in Nashville, so Stephanie originally started by trying on gown after gown in this theme. Her Mom, however, was not in complete agreement and thought the dresses just didn't suit Stephanie and her wedding. Stephanie's consultant worked hard to find a balance and realized that she was a “romantic, edgy” bride who needed something that balanced her personality, but was not too formal.

The “Tompkins Square” gown by Lela Rose was then selected for Stephanie, and she instantly realized it was “the one”. The dress is a fitted trumpet gown with an open illussion lace neckline and back. The look was complimented by a simple veil by Vera Wang that did not distract from the unqiue detail of the gown.

Stephanie and Daniel had an amazing champagne brunch wedding in the Spring with all of their loved friends and family; and at the end of their wedding, they drove off on Daniel's motorcycle!
