Nestled in the Vineyards at an all-encompassing wedding weekend at the iconic and oldest Vineyard in Dahlonega, Wolf Mountain Vineyards, Alyse + Michael became husband & wife. With family and guests enjoying one place with multiple gorgeous settings, it was a natural choice for or these two loverly souls.
Alyse knew exactly what she wanted to make all her guest feel loved from the choice wines and signature cocktail drinks to the afterparty. With planning expertise no detail was left out.
Inspired by a the gorgeous white weddings of old Alyse chose to have all her bridesmaids in white. Believe it or not it used to be a tradition. The reason behind the tradition was to confuse any evil sprits, safely disguising the bride among the group. The classic elegance continued in the green-and-white garden theme of the ceremony, created by La Petite Fleur, with crescendoing towering florals up the harbor, hand crafted welcome sign, white rose enthrones hand carved wine box with a perfect vintage Wolf Mountain wine, gold bell topped streamers and personalized inscribes floral cones for the ceremony grand exit. And while the decor was awe-inspiring, some of the more unexpected elements were the surprise little touches of Hamilton (the cat) on the side of the wedding cake, The Hamilton Cocktail and The Hamilton inspired wedding favors.
With the help of her Mother and Sister, Alyse slipped into her Stella York wedding gown. Her Olive and Piper jewelry and Vince Camuto bridal shoes were the perfect finishing touches. Ashton Huffman (Makeup by Ashton) created the perfect color palette for Alyse’s look. Megan Bolz (Platinum Scissors) styled her golden beautiful locks.
Michael looked dapper in his royal blue suit which brought out his phenomenal blue eyes. With the help of his groomsmen he was ready to wed his stunning bride.
Before the ceremony these two hearts chose to do a first look to calm the nerves. The superb fix for the jitters. Following their first look time was saved by documenting all the prestige romanic photos and bridal photos ahead of time while everyone was looking their best.
The reception followed with guest enjoying amazing food, fine wine, dinner and dancing.
Dear Alyse + Michael,
May the memories you made on your wedding day forever be in your hearts and on your minds. The truth is this, finding a person who loves you just as you are is the best thing in life. They see you through your bad, good, high, low, and everything in between without bailing out. The person still sees the sun rise and set in your eyes. Cheers to finding each other.
It was an honor and a joy to document your magnificent wedding day.
