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!
