A picturesque view from the comforts of Wolf Mountain Vineyards, enough wine to feed an army, a gorgeous Bride and Groom – we’re thinking this Georgia wedding is about as lovely as it gets. Melissa Prosser Photography sent us this beauty and it’s a perfect reminder of how awesome her photographs are. All the pretty details combined with those special moments at a wedding so often missed by a photographer. You know the ones: the Groom grabbing grapes right from the vine, the ring bearer busting out his best breakdancing moves. It’s all there and makes for one very heart-warming tale.

From the Bride…We were married at Wolf Mountain Vineyards in Dahlonega, GA on 9/10/11. Todd’s family is from Ohio and mine is from Alabama so we wanted a venue that allowed our families to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We both love wine and getting married at a vineyard was a perfect fit for us! Our guests were able to overlook the Appalachian Mountains during sunset at the reception and enjoy the local wine.
Todd and I wanted to incorporate playful twists to make our event unique. We had guests throw paper airplanes when we left the reception instead of the traditional bubbles or sparklers. My husband and I are both avid travelers for work and leisure and we wanted to incorporate our love for travel into the wedding. One of our favorite things to do together is stay home and cook. We created a website where our guests could enter their favorite recipes. It was a yearlong effort but we walked away with a treasured and unique wedding favor. We included family pictures into the cookbook and all of our guests seemed to enjoy them. We also included Georgia themed items into the OOT bags for our guests including: peanuts from Plains, GA where Jimmy Carter is from, Peach preserves, Goody’s Powders because you can’t find them in the North, and personalized water bottles.
The day was perfect and it reflected who Todd and I are as a couple. The special touches that we incorporated were special to us and we will always look back on our day with fond memories.
