Rustic Vintage Georgia Wedding at The Engine Room

April 3, 2018 | juliette

Rustic charm and vintage elegance came together beautifully in Katie and Josh’s Georgia wedding at The Engine Room. The warehouse venue once housed the engines that ran the historic Monroe Cotton Mills and, although it has been fully restored and parts of the building have been updated with modern conveniences, it has retained its weathered characteristics and beauty. Because they tied the knot in autumn, the couple based their color palette around burgundy and navy blue, which made for striking wedding party attire complimented by gorgeous bouquets, cascading centerpieces, and overhead floral installations created by Daffodils Floral Design Studio. The bride wore a timeless high-neck, low-back lace dress from The Sentimentalist, which she paired with five ivory roses in a loose, low bun, and her bridesmaids’ mismatched solid and floral burgundy dresses are one of our all-time favorite looks! Every detail was perfectly curated for a rustic and vintage feel, and the heartfelt moments captured by Wild Heart Visuals made this Georgia wedding truly unforgettable.

The Wedding:

The Engine Room, Monroe, Georgia

We wanted our guests to feel welcome and included in our day, because it was a group effort of our family and friends that made Josh and I’s relationship what it is. Overall, we wanted our wedding day to be a celebration of our story and everyone who was involved in it.

The most memorable part of our day was having all of our favorite people in one room. Many of our friends and family traveled from across the country to be there with us, so having everyone together is very rare for both of our families. We’ve never felt so loved and encouraged than we did on our wedding day.

My family and I have always traveled to Monroe, GA for the antique shopping, but we had never toured the Engine Room. When Josh and I got engaged, that was one of the first places we went and we were SOLD. It’s very large, it’s affordable, and it’s beautiful!

My sister and maid of honor surprised me with a small cross as my “Something Borrowed” that my grandmother gave her when she was little. My dad’s mother died before I was born, so it was very sweet to have a small piece of her with us on my wedding day.

I have a tiny calligraphy business, so I did all of the calligraphy for our wedding. For example, the table markers, signage, and seating chart. For the seating chart, I bought a very large gold frame from a local thrift shop and replaced the glass with chicken wire. I then used tiny clothespins to hang a card that I designed for each table.
