Fall Savannah Wedding

Savannah is a magical city. My best friend, Courtney, was born and raised in the city and brought us all to devour every last inch of her home when we were in college. It’s pure magic and when you layer on a wedding rich in beauty and style, well, the city just comes to life that much more. With photography from Amy Arrington, spend some time in these gorgeous galleries.

From the bride…Fall is our favorite time of the year so October was the perfect month for our wedding. We love the colors and cooler temperatures during this time. Both of us grew up in Richmond Hill, a small community right outside of Savannah. We decided on downtown Savannah for our wedding because of its beauty and history. We knew we wanted an outdoor ceremony and a reception in the same location so the Charles Morris Center at Trustees Garden was the perfect venue. The wedding was a little vintage with a bit of an Asian touch and we wanted it to be fun and a little more laid back.

The ceremony took place outside just before sunset and afterwards our guest enjoyed a delicious southern buffet and dancing indoors. We are so blessed to have wonderful family and friends who helped make our day extra special. They gathered crepe myrtle branches and berries to construct our ceremony arch, cut and polished the cedar slice which served as our cake stand, created beautiful floral arrangements, and made leaves to attach to the apples which served as place cards and parting gifts for our guests. It was a perfect day!

From the Bride… I wanted the feel to be a bit bohemian rustic with a hint of formality. I brought that in by adding hints of black; in the invitations, table names, programs and in the black and white stripe linens. His family is from California so we welcomed them to Texas by serving comfort food; fried chicken and Tex-Mex to name a few.

I grew up in Houston, he in California. We met while living in NYC and now live in San Francisco, so all of the tables were named after meaningful places to us. Above the decor though, we just wanted everyone to have the best night ever. Our friends and family are still talking about what an epic party it was! I wish we could do it all again!

From the Photographers… Natalie and Andrew’s wedding day was lush, elegant, and absolutely romantic! Their ceremony & reception took place at Laguna Gloria, an art museum nestled in the trees along the banks of Town Lake. The ceremony overlooked the sparkling water, while the tented reception took place on the front lawn of the museum. Every last detail of Natalie & Andrew’s day was intentional and meaningful. Natalie even designed the gorgeous floor length gowns that her maids wore!
