Serving the Triad and Beyond


April 30, 2018

Emily and Monte exchanged their “I Do’s” on March 24th at Winmock at Kinderton in Advance, NC. Although the weather outside was less than perfect (it was snowing by the end of the evening), nothing could dampen the happiness inside and their day could not have been more perfect!

I never saw Emily not smiling. She radiated so much joy and happiness as she walked down towards Monte – I should say, she didn’t walk down the aisle, she floated. When she finally made her way down, her joy could not be contained and shouted with a big “whoo-whoo”.    

Their ceremony was simple and beautiful and centered on their Christian faith and family. Following the ceremony, guests made their way downstairs to the Davis and Forsyth rooms for cocktails.  


Following the cocktail hour, guests were invited upstairs to the Loft for the reception. The room was elegant and aglow with soft candles and greenery and all the special touches that Emily brought to her wedding day.

One of the highlights of the evening was when, much to the surprise of Monte, Emily serenaded her new husband on the dance floor.  

As the snow fell outside, everyone danced the night away with music provided by John Haskins of Friendly Neighborhood DJ. John really kept the party going and everyone especially loved the one of a kind bridal party introductions which had everyone laughing and also shared Emily and Monte's love story. It was a fun night!

As Emily and Monte made their grand getaway down the stairs, they were greeted with well wishes and bubbles.

Congratulations Emily & Monte!!
