From the Bride… Ryan and I were married September 1st, 2012 in Savannah, Georgia! Ryan hails from Idaho – and I am from Philadelphia – but we were both living in Georgia when we met (Savannah for me, Fort Benning for him). If you’ve ever been to Savannah, you will understand why we wanted to host our family and friends there for the best day of our lives!
Ryan and I knew from the instant that we became engaged that we wanted our wedding to be in Savannah, Georgia. We fell in love with each other AND with the city simultaneously. Savannah itself is so beautiful… and so historic. The venue where we held our ceremony and reception is a modern art gallery (The Jepson Center for the Arts) that stands out (yet somehow manages to fit in perfectly) against the rest of the historical buildings and landscaping of Savannah. We chose our AMAZING photographers, Jade + Matthew Take Pictures because all of their photographs scream “HAPPINESS!!!!” and that’s exactly how we wanted to remember our day. Ryan is a Captain in the US Army and was deployed for much of the year between our engagement and our wedding date, but luckily, he and I saw eye to eye on most of the planning details. We both love a modern, minimal, chic, yet laid back aesthetic. We kept the colors in the same color family… mostly everything was white and cream, with bits of black and silver mixed in. Our wedding planner, Genina Ramirez of From This Day Forward Weddings, was so incredibly helpful in bringing the vision in my head to life… I couldn’t have done this without her! We capped the night of amazing love, amazing food, and amazing music off with a sparkler sendoff into a surprise getaway into a 1949 Bentley! So amazing. Best day of our lives.
