Friday I drove the curviest roads over Blood Mountain to Dahlonega, Georgia. I was in Dahlonega for a Montaluce Winery Wedding inspiration shoot. I pulled on the property at Montaluce and my jaw dropped. It is incredible how it feels like transporting to a Tuscan village. All in the midst of the North Georgia Mountains. There are pockets of homes like little villages on your way up to the Vineyard and Winery on the hill.
Again Victoria Miller with Luxe Atlanta Events styled a gorgeous wedding shoot. Her inspiration for the shoot came from marrying into an Italian family. Her husband’s family is Sicilian and her in-laws recently traveled to Italy. Upon seeing the photos of the beautiful textured buildings she immediately thought of Montaluce. In Short, her creative juices started flowing and ended up with a very Tuscan inspired look.
Montaluce is a 400-acre winery development with over 300 retirement and weekend homes, built around vineyards, a winery and a restaurant in the Tuscan style. Giving Atlantians a place where they can reconnect with family and nature. The housing that surrounds the Winery and Vineyard is clustered in small villages to replicate a Tuscan feel. A community based on the Italian model of “La Vita Bella,” or the beautiful life focusing on community, food, and wine.
I am not exaggerating when I say that Montaluce is a showstopper. It’s a magical venue for you and your guests. If you are looking for a relaxing destination getaway then this is your place. They cover your epic wedding weekend from the rehearsal dinner to the send-off brunch. Enjoy some of our favorite images from the day.
Irina and Larry met in Moscow while Irina was visiting her uncle in 2012. During her trip, she and Larry spent hours with each other, taking long walks in the snowy city. Irina went back to visit Larry in Kiev the next year and they spent the summer together. They traveled around Europe, camping, and enjoying time together. When it was time for Irina to go back to the states, Larry proposed at the airport as she was leaving and she said “yes” and literally floated home on a cloud.
Irina is a stay at home mom to their 2-year-old baby girl. They love to model and spend time together. Irina graduated college with a law degree, before modeling and parenthood, she worked at the courthouse. Larry is in remodeling and construction. They love traveling or just staying at home. Music and singing are a big passion for both. Larry plays the guitar and Irina the piano and violin. They are so effortlessly in love they were a dream to photograph.
