Looking for inspiration and ideas? We fell in love with these real Alexandria weddings…and are sure you will, too!
Michelle + Jeff, August 2020
Michelle and Jeff were supposed to marry in the Outer Banks and decided to postpone their bigger celebration to next year. Instead, the couple eloped with a heart-felt micro-wedding at the Carlyle House in Alexandria. With six people in attendance and their pub Lucy, their motto for their intimate wedding was "love always prevails."
Julia + Nick, August 2019
Julia and Nick say their wedding was the “perfect blend of simple and elegant.” The two married last year, (before micro-weddings were the new norm) and invited only ten guests to share the special day together. They kept things small and sweet for their wedding in Old Town Alexandria, complete with a photo stop at the waterfront and a local food truck.
