Brooke and Cory celebrated their intimate wedding day at the lovely Montaluce Winery. This venue is a little slice of Europe nestled in the hills of Northern Georgia. As soon as you step onto the property, you will feel transported to a Tuscan-inspired villa overlooking rolling hills lined with grapevines.
The bride, Brooke, is an incredibly skilled graphic designer and she custom designed all of the couple’s wedding day stationery from the invitations to the menus and place cards. Every item was designed on handmade and hand-torn paper and featured a small nod to the lush Italian Ruscus and smilax in their floral designs as well as a celebration of their soon-to-be-shared last name initial, B!
We design their wedding ceremony to take place under the large oak tree located on the venue’s property and overlooking the vineyards. The couple absolutely loved the oak tree and the view it provided so when designing their ceremony florals, we opted for something that wouldn’t block the view and low and lush floor arrangements and a whimsical chiffon runner draped on the tree and lined with greenery did just that!
These two lovely souls shared the sweetest vows during their ceremony; filled with memories of their high school romance rekindled years later and their promises to always love one another for the rest of their lives.
When designing their reception, the couple was excited by the intimate nature of the dining area; so we curated the floral design and set it up to accent the natural Italian-inspired furniture design. Their guests were able to relax and feel like they were all joining in on a large dinner party overlooking the hills of Dahlonega, Georgia.
These two had a wonderful reception filled with heartwarming speeches, and choreographed dances, all topped off with a lively sparkler exit and a chic jean jacket for the exit outfit!
