Alexandra Segalas and James Scilacci were set up on a blind date by James’s sister, Jenna, and her boyfriend, Thomas, who is a close family friend of Alexandra’s. After dating for a little under two years, he proposed on a hike during a long weekend trip to his family’s home in Montana.

As she grew up going to the Windsor Club in Florida, and half of their guests were coming from James’s native Los Angeles, it seemed like the perfect meeting point for everyone. To help plan their black tie affair, they hired Hamptons-based Claire Bean of Claire Bean Events.

Alexandra found her gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown and made it her own through unique styling. “I knotted two long pieces of tulle on either shoulder that draped down to the floor and behind—they were unexpected, and I loved the way they turned out,” she says.

Over The Moon styled some of the bride’s pre- and post-ceremony looks. For the alfresco, Italian-style rehearsal dinner and tropical welcome party, she wore a Leal Daccarat dress. Half-way through the reception, Alexandra made a quick change into a Rosie Assoulin jumpsuit, and then for the after-party, a fun Paco Rabanne mini dress made its debut. OTM also sourced a fabulous array of bridesmaids gowns from a pre-selected color palette. The maid of honor wore pink Emilia Wickstead, and a mix of LoveShackFancy, Emilia Wickstead, and Brock Collection rounded out the rest of the girls.

On the big day in autumn, the two were married in Windsor’s chapel. The bride walked down the aisle with her father to Pachelbel’s “Canon in D,” and after saying, “I do,” they drove off in a vintage, blue Mercedes, which doubled as Alexandra’s “something blue.”

Everyone then reconvened under a clear tent for the party. The couple wanted the reception to feel like a big, elegant dinner party, so they sat everyone around four long tables, covered with a custom block-printed tablecloths in a mix of paisleys and blue and white. On top, a mix of orchids and peonies looked as if they had arranged themselves amongst tortoiseshell, rattan, and wicker touches.

After the delicious meal, the newlyweds had their first dance to Beyoncé’s “Love on Top,” and then Rhythm Collective kept everyone moving on the floor. The tropical, disco after-party kicked off soon after, and the bride and groom kicked off their shoes for a more comfortable pair. “I wanted to dance the night away in comfort, so I had custom Vans sneakers made for me and James! They had our date and ‘Just Married’ on the front and ‘The Scilacci’s’ on the back—funnily enough, we have both worn them since the wedding (although not at the same time!!),” Alexandra says.
