Quirky Brewery Wedding in Atlanta

Brewery wedding in Atlanta

Amanda And Matt one day both swiped 'right' while on Tinder in their new city Atlanta, Georgia, and as they say, the rest is history! After dating for sometime, Matt proposed while they were in Belgium together and after that they set out to plan their dream wedding day.

They have a special love for spending quality time together and good craft beer, so they decided to get married in their favorite place to go after work and on the weekends in their new hometown! Monday Night Brewing has recently opened Monday Night Garage, an event venue prepared to host parties and weddings in Atlanta, Georgia.

What was the inspiration behind your day? 

We chose our favorite craft brewery in Atlanta for our venue and themed our wedding around it. Monday Night Brewing was one of our first dates and we just keep going back, it has a special place in our heart. What better way to get married then at a place you love with amazing beer!  We asked all of our male guests to wear funky ties, a key theme of Monday Night. The brewery theme was strung through out our wedding invites, the barrel guest book, bottle centerpieces and hop boutonnieres! Our color palette was burgundy, blush, dusty blue, and navy. Our wedding style would probably fall under brewery, whimsical, quirky, industrial and DIY.

Let's talk decor. How did you style the ceremony and reception? Which parts were DIY?

We wanted the wedding to stay on a low budget and Monday Night really didn't need much decoration, but the little bits that were there, I made. All of the centerpieces were used wine and liqueur bottles we took from friends and parties which I then painted and placed greenery in. The ceremony had a balloon arch with some faux flowers placed in it, which we made through our side business, Amplified Balloons LLC. Other than that we really just let the venue shine, because it didn't need anything.  The ceremony was in their outdoor area with a brick backdrop. The reception was held in their chandelier room that had chandeliers covering the ceiling, a burlap wall, a picture frame wall, a moss wall, and barrels everywhere. What more could you ask for?!

How did you personalize the day? What were some of your favorite details? 

The wedding cake was definitely a unique and fun part of our wedding. Instead of spending a lot of money on a cake, I made our own wedding cake shaped piñata complete with flowers and greenery. The cake was filled with gold coins, a throw to it being St. Patrick's day. We smashed the cake together to the song "Hit me with your best shot" and it was one of the funniest parts of that day. The piñata turned out to be way stronger than I intended, guess I am a better engineer than I thought!

What advice can you pass onto other couples planning their wedding? 

If you are doing a DIY wedding, plan plenty of time for all your projects and enlist your friends to help out. You don't have to do it all on your own! It's great to have a budget but splurge on what matters. Photographers are so important, spend your money to get someone you love who does quality work! They capture all the moments you want to relive. Save your money on decor and money, not on photographers. It's totally possible to have a <$20,000 and end up having the time of your life with gorgeous photos, I did!
