Monte Durham surprises Tina to “Say Yes to The Dress” – Omni Homestead Weddings

OK…it’s not every day that Monte Durham, Fashion director on TLC‘s “Say Yes to the Dress,” knocks on the door while the bride is getting ready to say yes to her dress.  This was a complete surprise to Tina.  Check out the moments below:


The Omni Homestead, our nations oldest resort, provided the setting for this wonderful afternoon.  It was so fun to hear Tina talk about how she watched “Say Yes to the Dress” and how it would be amazing if Monte Durham would stop by her wedding (she heard he was in town and actually stopped him to get a selfie earlier in the week).  Well, little did she know, he arrived at HER ROOM (!!!) and surprised everyone!  (On a side note, I really like that blazer!).  Tina’s reactions are priceless!  Many more to come!  ūüôā
