Savannah is number one on my cities-I’m-dying-to-visit list, and this incredibly romantic wedding by Dixie Pixel Photography pretty much sums up all of the reasons why! An effortlessly beautiful bride donning Martina Liana, groomsmen in gingham and incredibly tasteful touches throughout speak to the southern elegance + charm that make Savannah so special. The icing on the cake (quite literally) is the sugary masterpiece by TIER Luxury Cakes. There’s so much more pretty in the full gallery!
From the Bride… I wanted our day to be completely romantic and totally about us. Our love is simple and sweet. At our chapel, I chose to make fabric wreaths because I don’t like small flower arrangements on the pews. At our reception, I chose candelabras that were covered in moss and added a few flowers throughout. I knew wanted a butterfly/bird theme, so I bought an array of small butterflies and bumble bees to be placed on all of the arrangements. It was totally unique and made the arrangements come to life. Julie and the team at Garden on the Square did a wonderful job. The butterfly/bird theme came from a cake I chose as a model for ours. I was inspired by bird cages during the planning and saw a picture of a wedding cake inside of one. I just didn’t like the idea of “caged birds.” Finally, I found a picture of a small cake online that was a pale pink bird cage with a blue bird and butterfly on top. That was it! After meeting with Ashlee at TIER Luxury Cakes, I knew she could make our dream cake. Ashlee sent us a sketch of our cake, and that is where all of my inspiration and planning began!
I knew I wanted my girls to wear pale pink with the boys in navy suits. I love blue seersucker, so we chose that for the boys’ ties. I had a large blue seersucker bow to go around my bouquet. We also bought packs of hankies in shades of blue for the groomsmen’s gifts and had them monogrammed in Kingston by the Striped Giraffe. Our invitations were printed on hankies. I bought my mother one for the big day on our first trip to plan the wedding in Savannah, and we surprised Jo’s mother and sister each with one the day before the wedding as well. We knew many tears were going to be shed, and we wanted to be prepared!
