Monte Durham will be bringing his sense of style and sense of humor to the event. A proud West Virginian, Monte’s interest in fashion bloomed as he watched his mother emulate Jackie Kennedy’s impeccable style. Monte's talent landed him in the pages of Elegant Bride, The Washingtonian, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Martha Stewart Living, Town & Country, InStyle and Brides Magazine. His career has sky-rocketed and he has taken the industry by storm since starting as a bridal consultant.
Presently Monte offers his expertise to a much wider audience. He shares the screen on Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta with his best friend, Lori Allen, owner of Bridals by Lori. On Friday nights, fans can watch Monte jacking up brides and silencing unruly shopping entourages with just a glance. But the fun doesn’t stop there – Monte shares pictures and stories on his blog at TLC.com.
Monte gives back to his community through his affiliation with hospice and terrier rescue.
The Winsor Gallery will kick off the event with a meet and greet with Monte Durham and Miss. Georgia Teen USA Courtney Smits the model who shares the cover of Gladys Magazine with Monte.
