My favorite part of a wedding? The vows. Those brief moments during the ceremony when you get a heartwarming sneak peek at the undying love + devotion that two people so sweetly share. And thanks to the brilliant work of The Film Poets, we’re spending our day basking in the gorgeous words of Jeremy and Helen; a duo who is sooo in love, it will make your heart happy. Press play NOW.
From The Film Poets… We first met Helen while we were shooting a wedding in Atlanta, GA for her friends Bona and Andrew. She was the star of the dance floor that night, so when she called us I remembered exactly who she was and was thrilled. Jeremy and Helen’s personal vows were so beautiful and sweet that we had to include them in their film. Jeremy even learned how to play a song on the piano so that he could kick off his first dance with Helen. Watching him nervously practice throughout the day really made me hope that he would nail it, and he did!

For this former ballerina turned bride, honoring her love of dance was a must and her shoe selection did just the trick. And from the florals by Colony Bay Florist to the ombre blue bridesmaids in Alfred Angelo, the entire day followed suit with total elegance and style. Take a peek into this Southern beauty photographed by The Happy Bloom in THE VAULT.

From The Happy Bloom… Rebecca and Jimmy are the epitome of class and charm. So often we as people feel like we’re too this or not enough of that. But these guys? Somehow they fall so perfectly in the middle and you just want to sit down with them and ask, “How are you so perfect?!” They’re calm, relaxed, genuine and sweet all at the same time.
It only made sense that their wedding reflected who they are. A chic white and dusty blue wedding at Savannah’s Independent Presbyterian Church was where their day started.
Our favorite moment from the entire day was probably when Rebecca saw her dad…and when her dad saw Rebecca. She was so filled with joy that it brought physical tears to her eyes. We were so so so lucky to have witnessed it.
After the ceremony, the two and all of their guests and loved ones traveled over to Fort Jackson for an incredible sunset! They were also treated to a traditional cannon firing as a symbol of good luck and fortune upon their marriage. To celebrate the final days of summer, the couple opted into a brighter and more Southern color palette for the reception decor, incorporating antique china and the last of the summer florals. They spent the rest of the night dancing underneath the Savannah stars.

From Still55 Photography…Naiz and Brett are two extremely warm hearted people. She wanted her engagement to reflect the warm whimsical feelings she gets when around Brett. “I want it to be a romantic blend of timeless locations coupled with fun and authentic expressions from us.” Brett’s Uncle kindly welcomed us aboard his sailboat to add to our coastal inspired aesthetic. Immediately it added the candid element of surprise as we were bracing for waves and jockeying for position. Needless to say these images capture all of our brides desires and more! The warm sunlit start on shore followed by the timeless and romantic adventure of setting sail along remote stretches of historical places such as cumberland island made for a very amazing day!
