Alexa and Michael
Fairytale Come True
Venue: The Ashford Estate
Disney is what fairytales are made of, and Alexa and Michael were the real life Cinderella and Prince Charming. As huge fans of the happiest place on Earth, they wanted to incorporate their love of Disney throughout their wedding day.
This special couple met while attending Villanova University. If you know anything about that school, it’s how dedicated their students and alumni are. In fact, there is a constant waiting list to have a Villanova Church Wedding. While Alexa and Michael planned to have their luxury wedding reception at The Ashford Estate, they wanted to walk down the aisle at their alma mater.
The glamorous wedding dress was a custom made Reem Acra that even Cinderella would be jealous of! The groom and his groomsmen all wore classic black tuxedos, while the bridesmaids were in shades of purple. Forgoing the first look, Michael teared up as he saw his real life princess walking down the aisle.
After a beautiful ceremony, it was off to take pictures at one of the most gorgeous wedding estates in New Jersey. With endless places available on the grounds, it’s always easy to get the best wedding pictures ever at Ashford. From the swing, to the bridge, Alexa and Michael, along with their parents and wedding party took plenty of photos as guests showed up for the pre-cocktail hour with lawn games.
You can’t make a fairytale come true without a romantic wedding theme and glam wedding decor. The high ceilings in the ballroom allow for tall, upscale wedding centerpieces. Using three different styles, each centerpiece contained shades of purple, dusty gray, whites, and soft greenery.
The final piece of magic was given through the amazing lighting design that turned the ballroom a deep shade of purple. Then, at the end of the night, we escorted our couple outside to see their sign in lights, which read “Happily Ever After” in Walt-O-Graph.
