Alexius and Kurt met on Kurt's first visit to Shuga's, the bistro Alexius had recently opened. "I asked him to sign my petition for a liquor license," she recalls. So hosting their wedding at the restaurant made perfect sense. The bride wore an Anna Sui dress from Anthropologie ("I couldn't see myself in a traditional gown," she says). The couple's nephews escorted their two-and-a-half-year-old son, Harlan, down the aisle. The ceremony was held in the grassy median across the road from the restaurant. "We wanted to be able to look out the window in years to come and see the spot where we got married," says Alexius. Just for fun, Lindsay and another pal spontaneously hand-painted "Just Married" on the side of what will eventually become the bistro's catering truck. Inside Shuga's, paper cranes (made by Kurt with help from his bride) were suspended from the ceiling.
