Wedding at Alexander Homestead | Megan and Mickey’s Celebration

One Year. That’s how long Megan and Mickey waited since their Micro Wedding at the same venue, Alexander Homestead, to have their party. We’ve been with these guys for so long – it feels like we’ve known them forever. From their engagement shoot, to spending time as friends during Covid, to their first wedding at Alexander Homestead, and now to their redemption celebration. We could not have been happier for these two to FINALLY have the celebration that they both deserved.

Getting Ready for Your Wedding at Your House

Sometimes, the easiest and most meaningful place to get ready is your own home, surrounded by your closest friends and family who’ve traveled to celebrate with you. The whole morning was spent just having fun, listening to music, and recording TikToks for her wedding day (this has been a first, but we hope it’s not the last time we see it. Honestly, they’re a ton of fun haha!).

When we all drove to Alexander Homestead, I think it finally hit Megan that her wedding celebration that she’d been waiting for SO LONG was finally here. Alexander Homestead has a really beautiful getting ready house that the girls took, while Mickey arrived shortly after with his guys.

First Look at Alexander Homestead Before the Wedding Ceremony

Megan and Mickey opted to do a first look, and we were in full support of this, especially since they were already married! They chose the perfect time and location to do this as well, because the sun was in an incredible location to light up all of the amazing foliage around the gardens.

Insanely Fun Wedding Reception at Alexander Homestead

ALL that Megan and Mickey wanted was a celebration with friends, and they had waited so long for this. There was such a sense of relief, togetherness, and pure fun! The looks on their faces truly say it all.

One of our favorite things to do with couples is to have a last dance. This gives them a private moment after everybody has left to soak in everything that just happened. Megan and Mickey’s last dance ended up being one of the most emotional that we’ve ever shot.
