With its pastel color palette and incredible vineyard views, Emily and Stephen’s Montaluce Winery wedding in Georgia was irresistibly romantic. The bride said “I do” in an fun, elegant Hayley Paige gown which stole the show until groom Stephen surprised everyone with a serenade during the reception. Vue Photography brilliantly captured the day, from impeccable detail shots to dreamy golden hour portraits among the vineyards.
Emily and Stephen
Montaluce Winery, Dahlonega, Georgia
I love fashion and trends, so I wanted a young, trendy designer for my wedding dress. That’s why I chose Hayley Paige. Her dresses are beautiful and romantic but most of all FUN! I could not choose just one color for the bridesmaid dresses, so I choose 5 different colors, all soft pastels and neutrals. Each one of my friends are so beautiful and unique that I wanted them to feel different and special so they all chose their own style dress from the Amsale line.
I wanted our wedding to feel romantic, modern and fun, but most of all I wanted to add personal touches that I knew would make people smile. A July wedding in Georgia was a must. I wanted a hot, summer evening with special touches like juicy watermelon in the salads and cold, Bourbon Peach Smash signature cocktails — things that are most appreciated in the South!
Not a lot of people knew this at the time, but Stephen can really sing! At one point he got up on stage with all of his groomsmen, grabbed the mic from our band, bourbon drink in hand and sang “You’ve Lost that Lovin Feelin.” I have never been serenaded but what a better time and place than that moment! Very Top Gun and very Stephen.
The Couple Recommends:
I worked with Edge Designs on the floral and they did a fantastic job. We had a cross at our ceremony that was hand-crafted by a family friend and later will be transformed into a bench for our first home. Edge did a great job of encompassing the cross with flowers for the ceremony. One of my favorite design touches were the arches of flowers and candles that hung from the ceiling above our band. They blew me away! Since I knew our crew would be on the patio with the band for the majority of the night, I wanted something that really stood out outside and Edge did a fantastic job! We also set up a cigar and bourbon and scotch bar upstairs in case guests wanted to get away from the dance floor for a bit.
