A Classic Southern Style wedding for April and Matt who married at the gorgeous Chateau Elan Winery & Resort.  This was absolutely a jaw dropper with burgundy, blush pinks and vintage style decor setting this outdoor ceremony.  Notice the rustic altar grapevines designed with an array of antique green hydrangeas, spray roses, berries, and burgundy amaryllis.

April was radiant with such a beautiful smile.  The charm and elegance of this memorable day gathered with family and friends got even better at the Chateau Elan’s Debussy Ballroom Reception. Romantic lanterns, floating candles, glowing votives, with gorgeous fall pumpkin decor are just the perfect Details that Design House loves to showcase.

Thanks to Once Like a Spark Photography for these photos.

Congratulations April and Matt!

You have to stay somewhere when you travel, but why settle for a bland chain hotel when you could find a unique property instead? One of the most fun aspects of a trip is documenting your adventures for friends and family back home, and a stunning hotel can be a great place to take some beautiful photos. Here are some of the most Instagrammable hotels in the U.S., so you can find the perfect place to stay (and pose for the camera) on your next trip.

Wine tasting isn’t reserved for Napa Valley, and there’s nothing quite like sipping different vintages in the South. The Château Élan Winery & Resort in Braselton, Georgia is the perfect place to experience beautiful scenery with a glass of wine in hand. And really, what more could you want for the ‘gram? Stay in the inn overnight and enjoy a game of golf, relax in the spa, and of course, book a tasting session at the winery.

Visited the Golf Club lately? You may have noticed our staff sporting the brand new Golf colors and logo. Like the look? There’s a bit of a story behind it…

Throughout the last thirty years Château Élan Winery & Resort has created a legacy across the Southeast. Known for amazing wine, iconic vineyard views and the highest level of customer service; the Château Élan guest experience is one that people know and love. The Château Élan Golf Club is proud to be part of that legacy.

Following the stunning top-to-bottom renovation of the Golf Club, Pavilion and Golf Grille in 2018, combined with the new leadership of Troon Golf, the Château Élan Golf Club has continued to grow in both reputation and demand. It was time for the Club to take on an identity all its own that we believe will only further the legacy and reputation of Château Élan.

We hope you will join us in wearing and sharing our new look with pride!


After an extensive review of its production practices and ingredients, Château Élan Winery & Resort is now a staple in the vegan community having gained global vegan certification by BevVeg International — a law firm that specializes in vegan certification, regulation and advocacy — for its muscadine wines including Duncan Creek, Duncan Creek Red, Duncan Creek Rose, Summer Wine, Spring Blossom and Autumn Blush.

The majority of people are unaware that wine, although made from grapes, may have been made using animal-derived products. During the wine making process, the liquid is filtered through substances called “fining agents.” This process is used to remove protein, yeast, cloudiness, flavor, coloring and other organic particles. Around the world, conscious companies are starting to embrace higher standards of production and Château Élan proudly joins the prestigious ranks of wineries using a plant-based, cruelty-free approach verified by BevVeg International.

Featured as the GOLD STANDARD for vegan certification, BevVeg is nationally recognized for its efforts in Forbes, PETA, CBS, NBC and was also endorsed by celebrity supermodel, Christie Brinkley.
