Alexlee House – Elegant Weddings and Events

Surround yourself with natural beauty by celebrating special events beneath an elegantly draped ballroom tent with hanging chandeliers & custom lighting. A large stone courtyard is also available for cocktails and optional seating. Leave the details to us, our friendly and talented staff will take care of all the arrangements. Choose from our exceptional list of caterers. Allow them to craft an exquisite meal for you and your guests whether you’re planning a large celebration or an intimate gathering. Simply contact Alexlee’s to learn more about the experience we offer.

Alexlee House is a refreshing addition to the western Massachusetts event scene.  It is conveniently located off of I-91 and Route 2, yet secluded enough to set the tone of privacy.   It provides an intimate outdoor setting that is romantic and memorable. Built in 1993 our retreat served as a private residence for approximately 6 years, but as more visitors discovered the beauty and spectacular views, this home evolved into the West Winds Inn bed and breakfast in 1999. Travelers from all over the world have enjoyed our lodging. In 2013 West Winds was “renamed” Alexlee House by owners Michael and Sandi Waskewicz hosting Alexlee Houseweddings and events.

Four Wings Photography

Ryan Williams, BFA, is the maestro of Four Wings Photography. Having been steeped in the Arts for the duration of his academic and professional career, his work is stand alone in its authenticity, innovative structure, and responsive style. Ryan possesses a unique ability to find the diverse composition of his subjects and amplifies that creativity into a visual crescendo that leaves his clients feeling that they have truly been seen. Ryan has prioritized the quality of his work, honing in on a client-centered approach that is warm, welcoming, and enthusiastic. Sharing the experience of love is a deeply personal endeavor and Ryan handles the responsibility with depth and aplomb, seeing photography as the opportunity that it is. Ryan has had the distinct pleasure of watching his portfolio diversify, his art expand, and his clients enthusiastically champion Four Wings Photography.

Four Wings Photography is for people who are still exploring their bond with creativity. Let’s face it — we all strive to have a talent for the arts and a way to share our unique contributions with the world. For some, inspiration seems to just walk along side our every thought while others need a gentle reminder that within them is an aesthetic director. I focus on the intimate details that reflect the chemistry of relationships — and I’m not talking about the ones we all can see right away. The most impressive and celebratory sides of ourselves are hidden away once “that guy/gal with the big camera” turns our way. What you will want to see and show to generations following this great event is not going to be just the details of your day but your most authentic selves in those moments. Michelangelo, a Renaissance painter, sculptor, architect, poet, and engineer, had amazing vision. He saw art where others only saw rock. He is quoted as saying, “In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.”

Now I’m no renaissance man, but I do pride myself in bringing out that part in people that’s been itching for an opportunity like this. If fear is the hurdle than call me coach. In the end you have memories that aren’t tarnished by restraint nor are they a posed cookie cutter approach for the frame on the fire place mantle. We live each day in it’s moments and make our mark for a shared love of life’s memories. Four Wings Photography is for anyone who is willing to show their true selves, looks past the easy way and insists their love is something we’d all like to celebrate, and champions the investment in sharing true love with those around them.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
–Lao Tzu

Nuptunes

The “first dance” song is a very important facet of every wedding. It’s the first time you fully step out and announce yourselves as husband and wife. It’s that special, intimate moment you get to share in the spotlight surrounded by the ones you love, and you want that song to represent your relationship in every aspect so that your guests can catch a glimpse into your love for one another. You want that song to tell as much of your love story as it can… that’s where Nuptunes comes in.

Having a custom wedding song will not only make your wedding day extra special, but it will last you for the rest of your lives together. You can listen to it on every Anniversary, every Valentine’s Day, every time you want to remind yourselves of your love for one another, and how wonderful your wedding day was… “Your Song” will be there for you.
