A Romantic, Rustic Wedding at Montaluce Winery & Estates in Dahlonega, Georgia
Leslie Beach (35 and an account executive) and Lucas Catton (37 and a business consultant) fell in love with the beautiful outdoor views at the Montaluce Winery & Estates in Dahlonega, Georgia, and created a romantic, rustic wedding space filled with candles and wooden accents. "The main venue just seemed like it was the perfect mix of rustic elegance for us," Lucas says. Noi Tran Photography captured the scenic wedding from the outdoor ceremony overlooking the rolling hills of the vineyard to the reception filled with candlelight. Opting for a vintage style, Leslie wore a Maggie Sottero lace, fitted wedding dress with a birdcage veil, while Lucas wore a classic Vera Wang gray tuxedo. Montaluce Winery & Estates created the pretty arrangements of pale yellow and pale pink flowers, including ranunculus, that filled various glass vases acting as centerpieces on the wooden dining tables. Keeping with the winery setting, table numbers were presented on wine bottles and surrounded by numerous candles. The natural setting of the reception featured wood and stone elements that reflected the romantic winery setting. Leslie and Lucas admit that their wedding day flew by, and advise future brides and grooms to enjoy every moment of their weddings. "Keep the focus on each other and make sure to spend time together throughout the ceremony and reception," Lucas says. "Don't get swept away trying to please everyone else. Be present each moment because it goes by quickly."
