From The Bride…David and I met while David was working in Australia. After a year of dating in Australia David’s company wanted him to move to Savannah, Georgia. We instantly fell in love with Savannah’s moss-draped oaks, beautiful squares and romantic riverfront.
As most of our guests were flying in from Australia and all corners of the United States we really wanted to share the same Southern hospitality that we had felt when we first moved to Savannah. It was important to us to make sure that all of our guests felt loved and included not only on our wedding day but throughout their entire stay. We looked for special ways to include our guests wherever we could so that by our wedding day everyone would feel like family. Throughout the weekend our guests were invited to join us for a low-country boil, a trolley tour of the Historic District and a riverboat cruise along the Savannah River.
When looking for a venue we could not go past the charming Whitefield Chapel. The quaint chapel surrounded by the beautiful grand oaks dripping in Spanish Moss perfectly captured the beauty of The South. Our catering company worked with us to come up with a menu consisting of local favorites including shrimp and grits and chicken and waffles and our baker sourced locally farmed, in-season produce to create the most beautiful cake. A month out from the wedding when details and timelines were bearing down we decided to take some time off from wedding plans for a Bourbon Bury. A Bourbon Bury is fun little Southern folklore that we had happened to stumble upon that says if you bury a bottle of bourbon, upside down, at the site of where you are to be married exactly a month from your wedding date then it won’t rain on your wedding day. On the day of your wedding you are meant to dig up the bourbon and share it with your bridal party in celebration.
Truly the highlight of the day was being surrounded by so many of our loved ones from near and far and being able to share such a special day with them. Digging up our bourbon after doing the bourbon bury the month previously and sharing it with our friends and family was just yet another fun way to include everyone in our day. Walking across the grounds to the place where we buried the bourbon with so many of dearest and their own significant others was one of the sweetest moments from the day.

From Rach Loves Troy…When we first chatted with Molly and Ben it was evident they were a cool couple with some serious style. They had met and fallen in love in Las Vegas where molly was a Cirque du soleil dancer and then when work took Ben to New York City and now Laguna Beach, California. I knew after all that Molly and been had to be an adventurous couple and so full of life.
Their day was exactly that! Nothing but smiles from these two all day and their wedding style at the Bride totally reflected their calm cool and collected personalities the day of the wedding. They had this perfect mix of sweet southern with modern fun! So many fun details down to the beautiful floral appliqués on Molly’s adorable Two piece Jenny Yoo dress.
I loved how the blue, gray, and creams of their wedding perfectly blended with the style of the Brice. Molly was so conscious of the amazing design features this gorgeous hotel had to offer all on its own. Throw in all her adorable Kate Spade touches with their Mr. and Mrs. balloons and it was seriously beautiful!

From The Happy Bloom… Love can be found in the strangest of places. And on this special day, love was found in a tiki bar. Piper heard that “that cute med school boy” would be there and suddenly she found herself sipping a fruity cocktail listening to a local band. And there playing on stage….was cute bed school boy. Med school boy introduced himself afterward and the rest is history.
They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. And we believe in that wholeheartedly. Piper + Trey’s wedding day was on a grey, misty Friday here in Savannah, Georgia. But even the grey skies couldn’t damper this incredible classic black & white wedding day.
Piper’s girls wore neutral dresses letting their lush bouquets shine. Piper gifted her girls all a ring, each coming in a golden shell case. These rings symbolized their friendship and gratitude Piper felt for her girls on her big day.
Trey and his guys wore classic tuxes and bowties making this wedding day a sophisticated affair.
Trey’s father passed away three years ago but his dad was there every single second of this incredible day. Trey wore his father’s ring ensuring that his presence would be there from the very beginning all the way until the excited sparkler sendoff.
Right before their first look, Trey opened a gift from Piper. It was a handkerchief with the sweetest words from Piper: “Trey, in all the world there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world there is no love for you like mine. I do love you. – Piper” What an incredible prelude to a romantic first look in Savannah’s Forsyth Park.
