Emma and Richard knew the industrial atmosphere of The Engine Room, a vintage wedding venue in Monroe, GA, an old cotton mill, would be perfect for their Southern vintage wedding in rural Monroe. Summertime sunshine flowed into the room through large windows as Emma, ethereal in a custom-made gown from The Sentimentalist, floated down the petal-adorned aisle accompanied by her father. As the couple’s pastor officiated the ceremony, the couple exchanged heartfelt vows under a whimsical floating floral installation designed by Everything & More Wedding Planning and Florals. The bridesmaids, outfitted in mismatched coordinating frocks carried bouquets featuring punchy yellow tulips and ranunculus blooms. After the newlyweds were whisked off to take portraits, guests were treated to an outdoor cocktail hour that featured homemade snow cones to fend off the summer heat. Vintage and whimsy ran rampant in the industrial reception room that featured a thousand hand-made paper cranes strung to the reception room ceiling. For dinner, Endive Fine Catering treated guests to a Southern inspired menu that included delicious fried green tomatoes and a fun shrimp-n-grits buffet. After the cake was cut and traditional first dances were danced, Sam Hill Entertainment invited guests to bust a move and dance the night away in celebration. When the night came to an end, the expert planners from Atlanta-based It Takes Two coordinated a sparkler grand exit, where the bride’s father’s antique Chevrolet Bel Air awaited the newlyweds. Janet Howard Studio, an expert wedding photographer in the Atlanta, GA area captured every colorful detail from the couple’s big day.
