From Brita Photography
…I’m so excited to share Blair and Jonathan’s gorgeous wedding at Little River Farms with you. There was not a detail overlooked for this southern yet very classic and elegant wedding. From rustic, farm tables at the reception to sophisticated, pastel details in the flowers and attire…Blair and Jonathan’s wedding was the epitome of a timeless southern wedding.
When I arrived at Blair’s bridal suite, she had all of her gorgeous, wedding details ready for me to capture. There were so many meaningful pieces and there wasn’t a detail overlooked. From her grandmothers’ broaches to the embroidery on her wedding dress and the most lovely, sentimental jewelry…everything was just beautiful. I felt so honored to be the one capturing these heirlooms and special pieces that Blair and Jonathan will remember for the rest of their lives. Over 200 guests filled up their outdoor dining room at Little River Farms as Mr. and Mrs. Morgan made their grand entrance. Wooden tables, pastel floral arrangements, and rustic, elegant accents decorated every room of their venue. Their friends and family had a great time celebrating and dancing into the night, laughing, singing, and enjoying every moment of Blair and Jonathan’s special day.

Having been to Savannah more than once, I’m well aware of the magic it possesses. Its sparkle shined a bit brighter for this beautiful spring celebration, captured in all its glory by The Happy Bloom. From the glittering gowns worn by the Bride’s lucky ladies to the dapper doggies, it was an affair not to be missed!

From The Happy Bloom… Just a few weeks ago, we photographed Brittany and Michael’s wedding in Savannah’s incredible Forsyth Park. Of course, no wedding day is complete without a quick trip to Wormsloe for their first look and Bay Street for some classic cobblestone portraits! Brittany and her girls started the morning with mimosas, a little bit of Taylor Swift and a whole lot of laughter. Heather of Beyond Beautiful by Heather worked diligently on the bride’s hair while the bridesmaids made sure to keep the mood light and the jokes plenty. Brittany decided that metallics would rule her wedding, draping her girls in a champagne dress that looked like magic. Add a bit of soft green and wisp of ivory and she had a wedding day with class, style and sparkle. Yes, every Southern girl’s dream.
Brittany and Michael’s love story is so beautifully intertwined that both of their families celebrated this day with joyful tears and beaming smiles. We absolutely loved the moment when Brittany put on her dress and shoes, surrounded by the smiling faces of her adorable bridesmaids. It was such a beautiful moment and we’ve never felt so much love in one room. And the moment that her granddad kissed her cheek after he walked down the aisle?! Ugh, our hearts! With their sweet pups watching with eager eyes and pointed tails, these two people became one underneath the sweet Savannah Spanish moss. Brittany and Michael wanted to give their guests the true Southern experience. And no trip to Savannah is complete without whiskey and a large helping of old fashioned soul food. Before the reception, Michael dug up a bottle of whiskey (that had been in the ground for months!). For those of you who don’t know, this prevents rain on your wedding day. Oh, don’t believe us? There wasn’t a single drop! As their guests entered the reception, they were greeted with a glass of sweet tea (some with a touch of bourbon) and a plate of fried chicken with all of the fixins.

I love a Southern Wedding. And this one, my dears, is exactly why. From the sunlit ceremony in the Bride’s family-owned historic library to the twinkling al fresco reception in her grandmother’s backyard complete with a Southern feast, this family affair is full of the charm and traditions that make Southern weddings so special. See all the loveliness, captured by Simply Sarah Photography, here.

From the Bride…Brendan and I met for the first time at the Passion Conference in Atlanta; one year later we met again at a New Year’s Eve bonfire on a friend’s farm where we actually had a chance to speak. Our best friends on either side were our wingmen, and a month later we were dating! We dated long distance for ten months until he popped the question on Blue Mountain Beach with our family watching from a distance.
When it came to planning the wedding we had a few things set in stone that we both wanted. We knew that a big ceremony was not for us. An elegant and intimate wedding with those that loved us most as witnesses was most important and we also knew we wanted to be married relatively soon. I searched online for wedding venues in Florida and Georgia, BUT nothing stood out to me. After almost a week of back and forth we decided on my hometown of Bainbridge, GA – we would have the ceremony in The Old Library (a family owned building in historic downtown Bainbridge) and our perfect twinkling reception in my Grandmother’s back yard! We hired the most amazing planner Christy McCoy, with Christy McCoy Studios. Christy made my vision come to life, while fully encouraging my crazy ideas! She handled all of the planning, setting up, as well as being our florist.
The wedding was such a God moment. We had the most beautiful natural light coming through the windows; flower petals and candles lined the aisle, and all of our closest family and friends smiling back at us. We wanted our wedding to glorify God; we prayed that everyone present would experience the love of Christ. We asked our friend Bobby Forrester to sing Holy Spirit by Bryan and Katie Torwalt as I walked down the aisle. It was such a special moment for me!
The reception was so magical! I dreamed of a sit down dinner under string lights, and that is exactly what Christy created. We had a typical southern dinner, preserve roasted chicken, buttermilk mashed potatoes, and asparagus. Everything was perfect! One of our favorite and most special moments of the day was sharing our first dance to Take the World by Johnnyswim!
