montaluce ceremony locations
You have a few different options when it comes to choosing where to have your ceremony. One of the great things about Montaluce is that they have both indoor and outdoor ceremony options, which is really important for a venue to have incase of inclement weather.
Below, we'll show you each of the options and offer helpful insights to help you choose which is best for you.
In addition to the many ceremony locations, when you have a Montaluce Winery wedding you'll also have access to other areas around the property which are stunning for photos. There are so many gorgeous locations to choose from for your first look, family and wedding party photos, couple photos, night photos and more.
We've photographed countless weddings and engagement sessions at Montaluce Winery and can take you to all the best spots! Here are just a few of our favorite places for photos..
The reception space is made up of a few different rooms. The bar is where guests will have cocktail hour. Attached to that is the main dining room, which is where everyone will be seated and eat dinner, have toasts, cut the cake, etc. The veranda is attached to the main dining room and offers additional seating for larger weddings. Lastly, the terrace is where the dancing will take place!
One of the perks of getting married at Montaluce Winery is having access to their executive chef for incredible food and wine options. The Montaluce team will wow your guests with their professionalism and service, always keeping those wine glasses topped off!
WHERE TO STAY
Since Montaluce Winery is about a 2 hour drive from Atlanta, you and your guests may decide to stay near the venue after the wedding. The best places to stay are the villa rentals that are nearby to Montaluce, as they're beautiful authentic Italian villas that are a very short drive to the venue. However, if the villas aren't available on your date we recommend browsing sites like AirBnB and VRBO around Dahlonega.
Montaluce Winery does have suites within their building where you can get ready on your wedding day, however they're quite small and dark so most people opt to get ready elsewhere before going to the venue.
