On its own, Savannah, Georgia is pretty much the epitome of perfect marrying. But add to the mix the styling prowess of Morgan Gallo Events, lush florals from Harvey Designs and an entire world of vibrant hues (think pink, yellow and orange) and it becomes the land of, well… everything. It’s one part rustic, one part whimsical and all parts pretty. See it captured beautifully by Nate Henderson right here.
From Nate Henderson Photography… Kara and Brian chose historic Savannah, Georgia for their destination wedding. The ceremony took place in the traditional courtyard of the Ships of the Sea Museum, while their reception was held at the museum’s newly constructed pavilion.
The bride was involved on many details of the wedding, including custom designing and printing the textiles used at the wedding. The florals by Harvey Designs were overflowing with a bright spring look. Southern food served family style was prepared by Chef Nick Mueller. It was all quite awesome!
From The Bride… We wanted to have a beautiful, simple day that really highlights how much we appreciate our friends and family. As much as this day is about celebrating our relationship, we also want it to be a celebration and thanks to our friends and family. My brother married us and one of Brian’s friends played guitar for the ceremony. We really wanted to have the ceremony be an inclusive celebration.

When Morgan Gallo Events set out to showcase the lovely Ships Of The Sea venue, a modern take on Snow White was the first concept to mind. And with the help of awesome vendors like Kato Floral Designs, Munn Brothers and Rach Lea, she did just that. The results are a red and white love fest filled to the gills with unabashed whimsy and you can click right here for the full photo loot.

From Morgan Gallo Events… Ships of the Sea contacted us to stage a photoshoot to help show off the various areas of their venue and how they can be utilized. We wanted to show off the orchard (which we feel is the feature piece of their property) and ensure that the leaves and trees were the staple of the shoot. We started envisioning that the main color for the flowers and decor items be white as to not compete with the various colors of the leaves. The idea of the bright red apple started to show up and the next thing you know, the theme transformed into the “Enchanted Forest/ a Modern Day Snow White” was born!
We accented the table with the red plates/glasses but kept the flowers neutral. Snow White wouldn’t be complete without a mirror…so i thought it would be neat to hang various mirrors over the reception table. For the ceremony, we mixed benches and some amazing clear back chairs for the seating and lined the aisle with groupings of lanterns filled with apples and candles and mocked the same decor but in a great bulk at the front where the couple stood. My favorite piece is the strung apples creating a canopy over the aisle! My second favorite detail, the base of the cake stand–which was ALL apples that sat on top of a mirror!

There are few things I love more than the laid-back goodness of a backyard (or in this case, living room) wedding — especially when it’s this beautiful. You’re also basically guaranteeing success when you have the floral prowess of Fern Studio Floral on your side. Just take a look at Jade and Matthew Take Pictures’ stunning photos of the event, and you’ll see what I mean!

From Jade and Matthew Take Pictures…Leigh and Kathryn wanted a backyard picnic feeling in their wedding. No fuss just good times! A little rain changed some of their plans but they went with the flow. They had fun pops of color throughout their wedding. Then everyone danced the night away with some good ole’ music!! The ceremony was at the Kathryn’s Parent’s House on beautiful Bluff Drive.

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!

From Jade and Matthew Photography…Ida + Ian are just two of the cutest cuties around!! They decided to elope so they could do everything they wanted and not worry about the stress of a big wedding. They just hung out all day long, laughed a whole lot, had about a million kisses, and even helped each other get dressed!! We went to Back in the Day Bakery for some out of this world delicious banana pudding!! That no one wanted to share!! Visited one of Savannah’s amazing antique stores, then had a tent party in Forsyth Park!! Then ended the day with some delicious yumminess at The Olde Pink House.

Kate met Brad during a layover. They had immediate chemistry, but she told him that if he wanted to continue growing what they had, he would have to do it…via handwritten letter. So he did. She got the first letter on Valentine’s Day, and over the course of a move (him to her city) and forty letters, what developed was a proposal, hidden in written code… ‘Since the day we first met I have been captivated by your beauty, personality, and your faith. I’ve been blessed to get to know you in such a fun and unique way. I’ve truly felt like the luckiest man because of your effort and desire to get to know me as well. I am honored that you would want to pursue each other while still holding true to yourself and your promise. There’s been something that I have thought about for a long time, Katherine Anne…” Then, he proposed!!
It gives me chills every time I read it! Words cannot even begin to describe how special Kate & Brad’s wedding day was to us. It was an incredible experience. Nick and I were the only guests and we wandered all around downtown Savannah and Tybee Island. It was a perfect day!
