Alexis Decosimo and Collin Clark's eclectic, "community –themed" wedding, that's what. This couple met in Washington, D.C., while Alexis was participating in a cyclocross race (in a tutu, no less). That tutu proved its worth as Collin (cute man with a beer, according to Alexis) asked for the sassy cycler's digits just beyond the finish line. After dating on and off for the next few years, Collin locked it down with a bottle of bubbly, a mountain view, and his great grandmother's ring. From there, planning a Buncombe County wedding was a no-brainer for these locals who reside in Asheville. They opted for a nontraditional wedding party—a maid of honor, a best man, plus nine more "honored people"—and décor, as they put it, with meaning. Alexis lived in Africa for a stint, so bright, colorful, and patterned swatches of fabric she collected there popped up throughout the setting and wooden spoons she bought there were given as favors. Bravo to these two, who really and truly know how to host a one-of-a- kind Big Day.
