I owe Nate Henderson a very big thank you. He's responsible for the stunning images of this oh-so-lovely Savannah wedding, which has literally made my day with its effortlessly chic, Southern style. Potted plants lining the tables, a courtyard reception at the historic Harper Fowlkes House and one thousand paper cranes (handmade by the groom) hanging from the trees at the reception... You're smiling already, right? And I haven't even mentioned the burlap table runners and the twinkle lights! This is definitely a wedding of the day-making kind and I think it's the perfect way to end the week here on Style Me Pretty Georgia. See all of the pretty here!
From Nate Henderson Photography... John and Catie met in New York where he was the lead carpenter on a project that Catie was the architect. Catie grew up in Statesboro, GA and the couple decided upon downtown Savannah as the host for their union as husband and wife.
The ceremony took place at Trinity United Methodist Church, and the reception was just a short walk for their guests at the historic Harper-Fowlkes House courtyard. 1,000 paper cranes (made by John) hung from the trees at the reception; it was an awesome and beautiful sight. Simple potted plants adorned the tables, which were marked with old family photos, and each guest received a petite gift journal. The southern food by Chef Nick Mueller included fried green tomatoes, crab cakes, mac & cheese, and brisket among the amazing selection.
As the night ended, John and Catie released a candle-lit lantern into the air; many guests signed it as part of a German custom.
