There are so many special details in this Savannah wedding, captured by Shannon Christopher, I don’t really know where to start. We’re completely swooning over the bride’s decision to wear her mother’s wedding gown for her ceremony – for sentiment – and her change into a gown of her own choosing – for glamour – on her big day. Such a great way of celebrating her history. And speaking of paying homage, the sweet, Americana undertones woven throughout the entire day honored the groom beautifully, as he was deployed during the planning of this lovely affair. With the help of Morgan Gallo Events, the bride and groom were able to plan a day as beautiful as the tears the groom shed. The best part is that the whole affair continues in the gallery!
From Morgan Gallo Events … Beverly and Kenyon are so very special in many different ways. Beverly planned their wedding while Kenyon was overseas serving our country and that played an intricate part of the planning process. One of our favorite memories from this wedding was that Beverly actually wore her mother’s wedding dress – unaltered – for their wedding ceremony and then slipped into a more modern dress to dance the night away.
Guests enjoyed lawn games and beverages prior to the ceremony. A US Flag draped the table holding patriotic themed ceremony programs and mini flags, that were handed out to wave as the couple exited back down the aisle as the new Mr. and Mrs.
The theme was southern with infusing some old with new. Long tables were decorated with handmade runners, jars filled with peony’s and covered in lace doilies were surrounded by Georgia peaches and our famous Spanish moss and they sat on a few books. The plates were actually the bride’s grandmother’s china. At the end of the night, the couple released “Wish Lanterns” in honor of those that have passed before them.
