CHATEAU ELAN

John and I were privileged to be invited to the wedding of the daughter of one of my best friends. The wedding was at Chateau Elan in Georgia. We left out about 1:00PM from Birmingham. Oh my, did we get caught in Atlanta "rush hour" traffic! It was terrible. We got to the hotel about 7:00 that night. We had planned on being there around 5:30. But, we made it, got checked in, changed clothes quickly, and headed to a little meet and greet. I went with my "didn't do right that morning-rush hour traffic-no time to fix it" bad hair. Well, it didn't really matter because the beautiful "bride to be" out shined everyone!the next afternoon we took a tour of the winery that is on the property







the new fangled way to make wine








the "still around" old fangled way to make wine











the front of the beautiful grounds around the winery
