Infuse the lovely backdrop of Savannah with a sweet pink, light green and beige combo, and we’ve got ourselves a soiree full of pure romance. A soiree that the Bride & Groom lovingly planned from across the country with the help of Blue Mason Jar Studio. And the result is love, sweet love in the form of this beautiful gallery from Concept-A Photography!
From Blue Mason Jar Studio… Cassie Barnard & Paul Archer wedding will forever be close to my heart! Cassie contacted me from Portland, OR and was in need of a lot of help since they were so far away. Why Savannah?? In the early summer of 2011, Paul and Cassie took a trip to Savannah, GA where Cassie grew up, and Paul proposed (on one knee!) down on the riverfront. Cassie of course said yes and the wedding planning began! Cassie and I were in constant contact throughout the planning process even with the time difference. Their wedding turned out absolutely gorgeous and I remember Cassie saying something to the effect, I never imagined having a dream wedding, but this truly turned out to be a dream wedding!
Some interesting facts about their wedding… Total guest count: approx 66, the groom’s cake is the logo of Newcastle United Football team from Newcastle, England – Paul’s family is from the UK and this is one of his favorite teams, Paul’s mother sang at the ceremony in a beautiful operatic voice (during the rehearsal I was shocked by how beautiful her voice was since I didn’t expect this!), guests traveled to their wedding from near and far, Cassie and her friend worked together to design/print the escort cards and menus, Paul and Cassie designed their wedding programs and printed them their selves, and for their send off after the reception the guest waved American and British flags as Cassie and Paul were whisked away by a pedicab. I did not help with setting up the rehearsal dinner, but was a guest, and LOVED what their family did for the picnic style theme – sunflowers, mason jars, milk glass vases, southern cookin’, burlap, live music – so cute!
