Ashley and Ryan really embraced the idea of having a vineyard wedding and created such interesting, rustic details to create a great experience for their guests. I’ve been so excited to show you all these details, expertly coordinated by Stella Harper Events.

The dining room at Montaluce is an elegant, rustic setting.  The chandelier, the heavy wood tabletops … so inviting.

Escort cards were set into corks, each in front of the table where the guests would be seated. Love! And P.S. how gorgeous is the calligraphy by Calligraphy Expressions?

Centerpieces were warmly rustic moss and candle collections. And remember, y’all, this was D.I.Y. Family members created and cared for these greens, which makes it so beautifully personal.


As guests entered the dining room, they were greeted with this spectacular croquembouche. I’ve seen a lot of these, but the sugar detail and total design on this one by Douceur de France just blows me away.

And this wall of bottles? Such an adorable backdrop for their first bite (and the decadent dessert bar). Then you add the “Sweet Treats” sign… Just … Stop it. I cannot take the awesomeness.

This dining room was set up just perfectly. Tables surrounded a small dance floor, just big enough for Ashley & Ryan’s first dance. I love the intimacy of this first dance surrounded by their loved ones.

Then Ashley & Ryan sat at this sweetheart table. The decor is just perfect. Between the patchwork art on the wall, the warm fireplace, the purple chairs…

And, take a closer look at this… Wine bottles with the candles inside. 


Then you add the sweetness of Ashley and Ryan into the mix, and my heart almost skips a beat.


I’ll be back tomorrow with more details and tons of FUN from the reception!
