Andy and Sylvia completely blew us away with how they transformed Montage to make it their own. Even on a blustery rainy April day, they brought the gardens in doors to have the wedding they dreamed of. As their photographer said, this wedding was timeless. In all the right ways Andy and Sylvia stuck with tradition and paved their own path. All elements of their wedding were stunning.
Thank you Chloe Luka Photography for all these incredible photos we get to share!
Andy and Sylvia were married in the Chardonnay Room, a unique glass room that allows you to see outside and feel like you’re outside, even if the weather isn’t in your favor. The space was decorated by One of a Kind Events to include hanging floral, floral décor on chairs along their aisle, and a lovely alter featuring a unique unity ceremony.
In place of a traditional candle, Andy and Sylvia opted for something they can cherish for years to come. It’s a twist on the familiar sand ceremony, instead done with glass. Following the ceremony, Andy and Sylvia can send their unity glass to a glass artist from www.unityglass.com to be turned into an art piece they can display in their home.
Thankfully the rain let up later in the day and the couple was able to pop outside with their photographer for a few photos in the gardens and along the lake at Montage.
Following their ceremony, guests entered the Riesling Room for cocktail hour while Andy, Sylvia and their families took time for photos. The bride and groom joined their guests for the last half hour to meet and greet everyone attending.

Riesling Room had quite the WOW factor. Drenched in blue light from uplighting, pin spots illuminating each centerpiece, the mood was set from the moment guests entered the room. There was no mistaking that this was the space for a celebration and party. Centered on the dancefloor, their blue and yellow three-tiered wedding cake was displayed for guests to see before it was cut. Tables were set with white linen, chairs covered in white chair covers and sashed with yellow satin bows.

Even though Andy and Sylvia spent some time with their guests before the reception began, they still made their grand entrance with a formal introduction announcing them as newly weds. Guests dined on duo entrees of bison and stuffed chicken breast. Sipped champagne during the toasts given by their loved ones, played a game with their DJ, and danced the night away!
As they say… the best is yet to come. Who doesn’t love ending on a sweet note? That’s exactly what Sylvia and Andy did with their candy bar! Peach rings, unique chocolates, gummy bears,
