Alexandra Toulch & Jeremy Weis-Heitner

June 25, 2016 in Lenox, Massachusetts

“The first time I saw her was at one of my basketball games,” Jeremy Weis-Heitner says about his first encounter with Alexandra Toulch. “The moment I met her, I knew this was the girl – the woman I should, would, and will spend the rest of my life with.”

Alex and Jeremy’s courtship eventually led to an elaborate proposal involving Alex’s production company, a fake client, and a trip to Canada. Jeremy orchestrated the whole façade, with his uncle’s brother pretending to be a client in need of a last minute real estate project at his property in the Laurentians, Quebec. After a manic rush on Alex’s part, she piled into a helicopter with her film crew to capture some aerial shots of the property, then landed to take shots of the interior.

“Little did she know that I would be waiting in one of the rooms to ask her the biggest question of my life,” says Jeremy. “We have the entire thing on camera! We showcased the footage after editing it all together at our engagement party, which we held at the same beautiful property. Pure magic.”

With family being such an important aspect in their lives, the couple’s wedding planning process was centered around having both sides of the family come together in celebration. Alex’s parents helped source the perfect wedding venue – Wheatleigh, in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts – which offered a magnificent setting without having to travel too far.

Alex and Jeremy’s wedding weekend in the Berkshires kicked off with a welcome dinner and an outdoor showing of the movie, Father of the Bride. There were celebratory breakfasts, village explorations, and tennis matches as well.

When the big day arrived, the groom spent the earlier part of the day watching a soccer match with his closest friends, followed by a poolside lunch. While he was getting dressed in a custom suit, the bride was slipping into a wedding dress that Jeremy says “he will never be able to erase from his mind.” Guests then began to arrive in a stream of party buses, greeted by perfect weather for an outdoor ceremony, surrounded by trees and vines.

“It was like Cinderella walked down the aisle that day for me,” describes the groom. “Believe me, she did.”

With the Wheatleigh being such a fairytale-like venue, it only made sense for the wedding décor to reflect the same tone. The décor was soft, white, summery and graceful. Cocktails and appetizers were served outside, followed by a tented reception.

“The tent itself was decked out – even from a guy’s perspective, it was beautiful,” Jeremy says. “We had cigar rolling, some killer bands, and I’m pretty sure we pulled off the best ‘Twist and Shout’ routine of all time!”

After hours of eating and dancing, the newlyweds and their guests jumped into the pool for a late-night swim and pool party. Though exhausted, everyone was still energized from the day and relaxed with s’mores, brews and conversation.

“Our wedding day wasn’t just for us, but for all those who are a part of our life,” Jeremy says. “We are so grateful we got to share – and more important, experience – our wedding weekend with our friends and family in what was truly something out of a fairytale.”
