Beautiful photos and location – This location was a beautiful for my daughter's photos.
Beautiful place! – The Alexander didn't have my date available but I used their other location Cappella Court. They really helpped me plan my wedding from out of the country. I thought planning my wedding from Italy was going to be overwhelming and was happy to find a place that took care of so many of the details for me. They made my planning easy with tons of emails with photos and drawings and a long meeting with the coordinator and owner when I arrived back in the country just days before my wedding. Everything was amazing from the food and cakes to the coordinator and the little details. Their owner Sandra helped with a lot of the details and designing, their dj Tom made the reception fun, their coordinator Diane organized every minute. The prices were the best I had seen from the eight places I considered. I couldn
My wedding at Alexander Mansion – When I walked into this place, I called my mom and told her I was in love. It is beautiful and perfect for a wedding. I got so many compliments after my wedding!!! I had an overall good experience but unfortunately wasn't totally satisfied. There was A LOT of miscommunication with the coordinators and the owner with my mother and I and caused a lot of problems in the planning.. Not only that but the owner took down my cake order and the cake was not the way I wanted it for the wedding. I was SO excited to get to the venue and see my cake and when I saw it, I didn't have the "omg it's beautiful" feeling that I hoped for. The colors of the cake were all wrong. So that was disappointing but I didn't let it ruin my day! Not only that but during my wedding, we told the venue there would be 140 guests and they were not organized and ready for that many people. There were only 120 seats put out so as people showed up they were having to bring out more chairs. Also, my coordinator started my ceremony 20 minutes late which put us way behind schedule when it came down to it we didnt have much time for partying and dancing and she was very rude to my family bc some of them could not make it to rehearsal and she also kept arguing with my DJ during the reception about what order we were going to do things which really pissed me off bc instead of being able to enjoy my reception and talk to friends and family I kept getting pulled aside by my DJ and coordinator to tell them what i wanted even though it was written on paper.. We paid to be able to be there until 11 PM and my coordinator was trying to rush everyone out at 20 til.
My overall experience was good, but I think it could have been better, which sucks. Bc it's going to be a day I'll never forget. And the beer was flat and discusting.
MY WEDDING WAS WONDERFUL! I just got married at The Alexander Mansion a week ago and just back from my relaxing and exciting honeymoon. I just couldn’t believe how the staff at The Alexander made all my wedding dreams come true! Everything was exactly as I had imagined it! I booked my wedding with them because they have a beautiful place and the best prices for everything they include, their alcohol was 25% lower than anywhere else I looked, so I was expecting less than perfect, but my wedding and reception looked like I spent thousands more than I did! The decorations were beautiful, the food was amazing, the DJ kept my guest on the dance floor, the coordinator was on top of everything and OMG the cake!!!! Thanks to everyone at The Alexander, MY WEDDING WAS WONDERFUL and all within my budget! -Brittany g
Such a nice place, wonderful people, very smooth running – I just had my wedding there and I have nothing but wonderful things to say, I am troubled that this one bride on here just keeps using other screen names to cover and to slam a wonderful business. THE ALEXANDER HAS WONDERFUL COORDINATORS AND STAFF, and at their request every Bride that has a wedding there is being sent to this website to give true actual facts about the experience and the way they were treated, I was treated like a Princess from the time I book until the time I left their facility. HONESTLY these websites should be helpful but as you can see by reading them they can also be used in a revengeful way, ATTENTION ALL BRIDES TO BE< BE YOUR OWN JUDGE AND REMEMBER THERE ALL ALWAYS TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY!! The confused bride in all her false posting can not be taken to heart lets face it she's angry and out for revenge don't let her revenge keep you from a very wonderful wedding and at a very affordable price..you owe it to yourself to get a first hand view of the staff, I did and they are nothing as BRIDZILLA describes sometime certain people just can not be please not matter what lengths you go to.. summing this up I had a wonder experience and I would not have wanted anything else they were absolutley GREAT!! I have wonderful memories and photos of my wedding night..you will too!!
Beautiful place...bad business practices... – I have read the last review that someone wrote and to be honest...I got married there not to long ago and I WOULD NOT recommend this place...I WOULD NOT want someone to go through what I went though with this place of business.
They have bad coordinators, with attitudes that are horrible, I was stressed out to the max with them because I was putting one of my most treasured day into the hands of coordinators who in my opinion thinks that it's just another business deal, and lets get this bride married and out the door.
Once the contract is signed LOOK OUT!!!
I do not wish to have someone go through what I went through, and I am being as honest and forthright as I can be...there business practices are horrible...even when you talk to the owner, she is VERY uncoopertive and you DO NOT WANT TO GIVE OR HAND OVER ONE OF THE BEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE OVER TO THEM.
PLEASE>>>DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GO SOMEWHERE ELSE TO HAVE YOUR FABULOUS WEDDING!!!...you will not regret it...
Great Location, Beautiful, and nothing but the best people! – I have read the reviews posted and find it obsurd that one disgruntled bride would use this forum for her "OPINION" and her lack of respect for all other Brides to be able to read factual information not just one bride posting the same 'OPINION' over and over under differrent user names, obviously again did not read the terms of this website as it appears she did not read the contract the facililty provided either. As a bride that was married at the Alexander I am offended that you would continue your personal issue over a public forum for information about a facility especially the facility that I just got married in. The Alexander Mansion and staff was nothing more than the best. They attended every need, always willing to lend a hand answer questions and as a Bride, there are always questions, I think I called them every other day, never once did I recieve "crappy service" they went above and beyond to make my wedding the perfect one! I loved the place and it was absolutely stunning the night of my wedding, I had the best coordinator the facility had she did everything in a professional and very courteous manner. I am not sure who this one bride is under serval postings but as a intelligent person as you read the posting you see "revenge" all over them! Please disregard this bride and read the factual info, not all of them say it was the best , but they have only posted one time with thier experience. I have nothing but great thing to say about the Alexander Mansion, get your own opinion these forums can be very misleading. We all have heard of the show "BRIDZILLA", I believe there is one on this forum. Again, The Alexander Mansion was the best place I could have chosen and thier staff was wonderful!! Let me add when you sign a contact you should know what you are signing and you should do as you contracted, via payments, etc., and as I was told from the staff at the Alexander get everything in writing so you are not confused at what is to take place.
Pretty place....Crappy Business practices. – I DO NOT recommend this place, save your money and go somewhere else. The staff there are very sweet, UNTIL the contract is signed then they turn evil. They were not helpful and disipointed me grately. I felt that I could not relax because I didn't feel that they had my best interest at heart. They were very rude, I would save my money and go somewhere else....PLEASE, do yourself a favor. YOU WILL REGRET IT IF YOU SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE>>>>I promise!
NOT THE FAIRYTALE I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE – I am writing again, because I am tell you all DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE>>>they have bad business practices. Rude cordinators....they make your life miserable, and you can do nothing about it because the contract is signed and they like that. they like to hang that over your head to get you to do what you want.
SAVE YOUR MONEY GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!
Wonderful Place, Magical, would highly recommend!! – Outstanding Job! I cannot say ennough how wonderful the Alexander Mansion was, all the staff and people involved. We had a great time! Thanks to everyone who took part in our wonderful day, Jennifer was great! I would recommend them to everyone..great price, elligant, and beautiful place to be married!
All I can say is GREAT GREAT GREAT!
