Alex & Grant
August 26, 2017 • Truro, MassachusettsBy Noelle Barbosa | Wedding photography by DuHon Photography
A classic celebration—that’s the tone Alex Griffith and Grant Zallis set for their August nuptials on Cape Cod. The Chicago couple met in 2012 and were engaged three years later on Turks and Caicos. While vacationing in Provincetown one summer, they stopped at Truro Vineyards for a wine tasting.
“We fell in love with the space and asked if it was available for weddings,” says Zallis. “It was available a year from the day we toured the property.”
This “well-heeled” couple (Alex wore Christian Louboutin loafers and Grant donned Salvatore Ferragamo slip-on shoes) chose Brooks Brothers tuxedos for a stylish wedding-day look. Cufflinks, family heirlooms for Alex and a Montblanc pair for Grant, added a finishing touch.
The two exchanged vows under a tree at the base of the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown, and later hosted 100 guests at their reception at Truro Vineyards.
“The vines at the vineyard were so full in late August and provided a beautiful backdrop to the reception,” explains Alex, who wanted the natural beauty of Provincetown and Truro to take center stage.
For the reception, Cape Cod Celebrations designed sophisticated, yet simple, table décor. White floral arrangements and glass hurricane candle holders were placed among lush green garlands that spanned the length of wooden farm tables, and cascaded to the floor on both ends.
“We wanted the effect to be subtle and timeless, with the focus on great conversation and exquisite food,” says Alex.
