From the Bride… Our wedding at Wolf Mountain Vineyards was literally a dream come true. Dustin and I could not have imagined a more beautiful and perfect day. The venue is set in the North Georgia Mountains, giving it a breathtaking view. Walking down the aisle and seeing my husband look at me with tears in his eyes was the most special moment in my life. The staff at Wolf Mountain literally made the day effortless and Amy and her husband did such a great job capturing all of our special moments! We will always cherish that day and the life-long memories that we made.

Montaluce Winery Wedding from Amy Arrington Photography

Montaluce Winery is quickly becoming one of my favorite places in the world to say “I do.”  Maybe that’s because every.single.wedding we see coming from this Georgia wonderland seems to exude the perfect combo of Southern elegance and old-world charm, with just a dash of rustic sweetness.  It’s perfection. Which is why it took this darling duo just one visit to know that Montaluce was THE place to celebrate their union, complete with pretty, pretty florals from Boukates, darling DIY touches and the ever-amazing Amy Arrington Photography on hand to capture every love-filled moment.  Join me in the gallery to take it all in.

From the bride… I have always heard people say that after you find your wedding venue, everything else just falls into place. Bo and I certainly found this to be true. We knew we wanted a place that felt elegant yet rustic, so Montaluce Winery was just what we were looking for. The quaint, Southern town of Dahlonega was the perfect place for a Fall wedding, and we loved that guests could enjoy a weekend browsing the shops and enjoying the beautiful weather.

The ceremony took place in the Wine Production room with big barn doors that were opened to let in the sunlight. The string quartet played special hymns and songs to set the mood for our very meaningful ceremony.

Besides the perfect venue, my favorite things about our wedding were all the small details that made it special. Bo and I are both very close to our families, and we wanted them to be represented that day. In the ceremony, we displayed a large wooden cross that was built by my cousin from old barn wood belonging to Bo’s grandfather. Antique Mason jars were also prominent in both our ceremony and our reception. Each of the jars we used were collected from our family- our moms, cousins, and grandmothers. Perhaps my favorite detail, though, were the earrings that I wore. They had belonged to my grandmother, and each granddaughter in my family has worn them on her wedding day.

We wanted classic flowers and neutral colors as the backdrop for our wedding so that all of the other details could be showcased. The white hydrangeas the bridesmaids carried complemented their navy dresses, and I loved the way the hypericum berry boutonnieres fastened together with twine accented each groomsmen’s gray tuxedo.

I must say that one of the things our guests still comment on most is the food. We had especially delicious beef short ribs, as well as a scrumptious cakes- two tiers of chocolate ganache, two tiers of carrot cake, and a groom’s cake with strawberry and lemon filling. To thank our guests for coming to celebrate with us, we gave each of them a jar of North Georgia honey.

We wish that we could relive this day over and over. We feel so blessed that we were able to celebrate with the family and friends who mean so very much to us. It was a magical day!

North Georgia Wedding at Montaluce Winery from Heather Cook Elliott

When I first locked eyes with this Montaluce Winery wedding from Heather Cook Elliott, I would have never, in a million years, guessed it belonged on the Georgia blog! The gorgeous rolling hills and lush vineyard locale took my mind directly to Tuscany, Italy, not Dahlonega, Georgia! It was at this little gem of a venue, in the North Georgia Mountains, where the sweetest couple became Mr. and Mrs. surrounded by family + friends. See it all right here! 

From Heather Cook Elliott… Andrea & Ray were married overlooking a vineyard in the North Georgia Mountains where most folks don’t know that a little slice of Tuscany exists. Their outdoor wedding was preceded by one of my favorite first looks ever – Ray was nervous then calm, nervous again and then finally, completely and for the rest of the day perfectly calm once Andrea tip toed up behind him between rows of grapes on vines. He seemed to exhale a breath he didn’t know he was holding and she giggled. She glowed. She looked amazing. And she would soon be Ray’s wife. Andrea’s minister brother officiated the nuptials and the wedding party was intimately small and included Ray’s dad as one of the groomsmen. The details were plentiful and festive and just basically joyful – sweet flowers from the fields set off by rustic wood tables, delicious cuisine from the award winning dining room at Montaluce, a rich his and hers set of cakes, and then the sparklers – so many sparklers to wish them well at the end of the night.

From the Bride… When Brett and I got engaged, we were really undecided on the location of our wedding. We searched through what felt like hundreds of venues and then finally found the perfect spot in Montaluce Winery & Estates. Brett is from Ohio, and my extended family was coming all the way from South Africa and England, so Montaluce was a perfect special getaway that felt a little bit like a destination wedding.

Our family friend offered to do all of our flower arrangements for the wedding, so our DIY wedding was truly that. We worked together to decide on a color scheme and chose georgia peach as our accent color, since we moved to Atlanta, Georgia from South Africa after I was born and still call it home! Our family and friends all pitched in to make this wedding the beautiful affair that it was. Brett’s brother Ryan designed the gorgeous wedding invitations which also influenced our programs and other paper products. On the wedding day we had a team of people lighting candles, laying out the handmade burlap aisle runner, cleaning lanterns, setting out flower arrangements, decorating the table tops and laying out the bags of almonds on each place setting(a special tradition from South Africa). I collected antique postcards from South Africa through Ebay and Etsy to make our table numbers, which was a surprise for my parents and a little slice of home. Our wedding absolutely would not have happened without the love and care each and every “worker bee” put into it.

The weather was absolutely perfect (75 degrees in Georgia in June?!) on our wedding day, creating a wonderful backdrop to our candlelit ceremony in the production room of Montaluce. We then ate family-style dinner with the winery sunset as a backdrop and danced under the stars. Altogether, our day was one I will never forget and really was a tribute to all of the hard work that everyone involved put into making it happen. Finally, our photographers have put together an amazing collection of photos that we will have forever to remind us of the day. Chad and Tina of The Long Farewell are genuinely wonderful people who made everyone feel at ease and comfortable all day. We could not have asked for two better people to spend the day capturing our wedding. A million times thank you!

From Amy Arrington PhotographyBrannon and Emily’s wedding in the mountains was so sweet! Most of the decoration details used at their wedding were of sentimental value. The hair flower that Emily wore was made with lace from her mother’s wedding gown. A few bible verses were also sewn into the inside of her wedding gown. Emily gifted all of her bridesmaids an oh so cute Plum Pretty Sugar robe to wear while they got ready.

The couple opted to do a “first look,” which we love! During their first look, Emily gave Brannon a special journal that she began when she first started dating him, which she kept it until the day that they got married. I love that! Their ceremony was held in a pasture in the mountains at White Oaks Barn in Dahlonega. White Oaks is such a beautiful place. The mountain landscape and vast grassy land is just breathtaking. To the right of the ceremony, we could see a distant rainstorm hovering over the mountain, which was pretty cool. My favorite part of the ceremony was when Emily’s dad walked her down the aisle. Emily’s father has Lou Gehrig’s disease, and it was an honor to get to see him walk her down the aisle.

Inside White Oaks Barn, their reception was decorated with tables dressed in burlap and lace. The centerpieces consisted of hydrangea and baby’s breath arranged in mason jars. Outside, guests enjoyed playing corn hole. There were two sets of corn hole — one for Georgia fans and one for Auburn fans. There were also two cakes. The bride’s cake held a wedding topper that was used at her parent’s wedding. And the groom’s cake consisted of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Brannon chose doughnuts for his cake because he and Emily had their first date at Krispy Kreme. My favorite detail at their reception was the photos that were strung on a line with clothespins on a set of two antique window panes.

From the Bride… I married my best friend, Chris Fenner, a month ago in Dahlonega, Georgia, at White Oaks Barn. Our photographers were Ben and Colleen of Pure Gold Photography. I got each of the bridesmaids a kimono as their gift to wear while we were getting ready day-of! My dress was a champagne ballgown, and my birdcage veil was homemade. Each bridesmaid got to pick out their own dress in a color palette ranging from mint to teal. During our first look, Chris gave me a very special necklace made from the diamonds from my mother’s engagement ring The sweet little junior bridesmaid is Chris’s youngest sister. My dad married us, and my mom was my matron of honor! Chris’s dad was his best man as well. I painted a re-creation of the mountain and house from the movie UP! (one of our faves!), and the guests put their thumbprints on it like balloons. The reception was in the barn and the ceremony was outside on the hills. I made each centerpiece by hand by vintage postcards with cute sayings (example: “We’re having and H— of a time!” There really were dashes after the “H!”) and hand-dipping each bottle. I got the milk glass vases at thrift stores, along with the succulent pots. Friends volunteered to make cupcakes instead of us having a cake. My grandmother, Julia, my namesake, made our little cake to cut: red velvet from scratch. I made the cake plates from vintage plates from Goodwill and candlesticks! I made hearts on the cupcakes and the big “F” too! In the reception shots, you’ll see the ribbon chair backs I made for Chris’s and my chairs. I painted small mirrors black and wrote “bride” and “groom” on them with chalk! I got “FOREVER” engraved into his ring because that’s what he texted me the night we got engaged. :)
