The Wedding Day
A gorgeous vineyard resting upon the Georgia mountains in January was the perfect location for Marianna & Nick to become husband and wife. For two souls who love wine, the mountains and cozy elegance Wolf Mountain offered everything they were looking for.
Brilliant colors of radiant gold, dreamy midnight black, tenacious greens, and dazzling silvers set the mood. Le petite flouer designed a color motif set apart from anything else for Marianna. Succulents, which was the first gift Nick ever gave to Marianna lined the aisle. Anemone, Blue Thistle, and White Snapdragons set among lush greens adorn the bouquets. Frosted pumpkin treated their gorgeous cake with a mini Patch (their pup) tucked away on the side of the cake. A fun little surprise for guests.
With the assistance of her mother, Marianna stepped into her lovely wedding gown with a cascading organic-shaped leaves and dainty bloom detailing for a natural masterpiece. The gown was elegant, bold and modern which she later paired with a bridal cape veil before walking down the aisle, the perfect touch of romance.
Meanwhile, Nick and his gentlemen prepared for the day in the Vineyard Cottage. Beforehand Nick gave all his groomsmen embossed leather flask, leather drink koozies and hand crafted leather bottle openers. With a hand from his brother Nick slid into his Joseph a Banks tailors black tux. Personalized bee cufflinks add in a hint of their love story.
Marianna and Nick’s story began as many others do in this modern era of dating…they met on a dating app. However, while others would bond over mutual interests or shared hobbies Marianna and Nick first bonded over their mutual annoyances of everyday life. People not using turn signals, having more than 10 items in the “10 items or less” checkout line, getting on the elevator before others can get off…no trivial offense or mundane inconvenience was left unsaid as they vented for hours on the things that irritated them. They soon came to the unanimous decision that they could afford to share a meal without annoying the other, and on July 25th of 2019 it was this decision that led them on this new journey of love together.
At their first date, the shared grievances quickly fell away to jokes and fun stories as it became abundantly clear that there was more to come with this relationship. As the weeks and months moved on the fun stories gave way to long conversations on what the future would entail, and as they spent more and more time together these two cantankerous souls realized they were in love.

The Wedding Ceremony
Their vows were exchanged under a chuppah embellished with Jewish symbols, tradition and white tulle. They shared a chalice of wine and the traditional breaking of the glass before the final kiss kicked off the night. The perfect start to their journey as husband and wife.
Guest we filled with joy as Marianna and Nick were introduced as husband and wife. A choreographed first dance opened the evening and wine flowed abundantly.
