Monte Durham of TLC's 'Say Yes to the Dress - Atlanta' recently hosted a grand opening of his new, chic boutique salon. The evening began with champagne at an intimate gathering for family and close friends followed by tours, a reception next door at Hotel Indigo's Hummingbird Cafe outdoor patio and a ribbon cutting with Mayor Justin Wilson.
The celebrity bridal guru and renowned hair stylist posed for pictures with guests in front of his replica portrait of Jackie Kennedy—which was gifted to Monte for his charity work with Ronald McDonald House— and his 'wall of fame' featuring magazine covers he modeled for, spanning the course of his wonderful career (including VIP Alexandria Magazine!)
