Romantic Savannah Wedding

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!

Antique Elegance meets Southern Charm in Savannah

I’m going to try my best to not sound stalkerish when I say I love this Bride in a major, total Project Runway superfan sort of way. Two time contestant, Kate Pankoke, is best known for her super chicbridal ensembles and her wedding is no exception. It’s a full on elegant Southern affair stuffed to the gills with the perfect vintage touches captured by Shannon Christopher. And the dress from Kate’s bridal line, Elaya Vaughn? Pretty sure Tim Gunn would give a standing ovation. See even more right here.

Kate and Zach are high school sweethearts, so this wedding was a long time in the making. They are old souls who love to go antiquing; which is what led them to choose Savannah, GA as the location for their wedding. They wanted it to be very intimate yet still glamorous; with it’s spacious ballroom and dining area complete with stunning crystal chandeliers, Brockington Hall was the perfect venue for this wedding.

The theme of the wedding was Antique Elegance with a Rustic flare. They had mix and match vintage chairs for the ceremony and reception. Kate wanted the flowers to be voluminous but understated, like freshly picked wildflowers from the woods in front of her childhood home in South Florida. Kate and her bridesmaids ordered the flowers from Sam’s Club online and assembled the bouquets and centerpieces the night before the wedding with help from the amazing ladies at Ivory and Beau. The bouquets and centerpieces consisted of white baby’s breath and hydrangea with green fern accents.

The tables were marked with books that were named after the many different volumes of Kate and Zach’s life together. The happy couple was seated with their parents at “Volume VII. Happily Ever After”. The tables were draped in champagne satin tablecloths and accented with antique lace runners borrowed from Kate’s friends and family. The floral centerpieces were placed in large hurricane vases with a base of green moss and tan Manzanita branches. Each table was topped with several interesting antiques that the couple had found during one of their many adventures together.

Kate is a designer and has her own line, Elaya Vaughn Bridal, so she executed the ultimate bridal DIY and made her own gown. Fun Fact, she made it 7 days before the wedding! Kate’s gown is a stunning A-line tulle gown. It has a strapless, structured bodice with a champagne beaded lace overlay. Kate also made her veil that was just slightly longer than her train. Myra Callan from Twigs and Honey gave Kate the gorgeous baby’s breath crystal and pearl headpiece that topped off the look.

Though the guest list was limited, the bridal party was not! Kate and Zach each had 9 attendants on their side making the bridal party account for over 20% of the wedding! Kate’s side was a little unique, she didn’t understand why she should only be able to choose women to be her bridesmaids, so she had a combination of bridesmaids and brides-men. The bridesmaids wore beautiful lace LBDs from Anthropologie and the brides-men wore the same attire as the groomsmen, Black by Vera Wang tuxes. Kate and Zach surprised the ladies in their party with black crystal drop earrings and the men with black and white polka dot bow ties with their initials embroidered on them.

Zach is Jewish and Kate is Catholic, so they wanted to have a non-denominational ceremony. As a surprise to all of their guests, Zach’s brother, Josh, got ordained and performed the ceremony.
After the ceremony, the guests had a cocktail hour in the library and then greeted the couple for their first dance. The bride and groom danced to “Do You Remember” by Jack Johnson.
Guests feasted on some good old Southern cooking like collard greens, shrimp and grits, and Chicken Pulaski. The cake was a beautiful 3 tiered rustic buttercream creation by the talented team at Tier Luxury Cakes.

Kate and Zach chose to do a Tea Bar for their favors. They had vintage jars that their guests could scoop local Savannah tea into to take a part of the south with them.
After dancing the night away, guests retreated to the porch for a cool night breeze and a final glass of champagne as they bid their farewells and good wishes to the new Mr. and Mrs. Aberman….and they lived happily ever after.

Lisa + Brad decided to elope on a trip back home from visiting Florida with their family. They live in Canada. It was going to be a surprise to most of their family and friends. They wanted a low key event in a beautiful location to celebrate the two of them.

Fall Savannah Wedding

Savannah is a magical city. My best friend, Courtney, was born and raised in the city and brought us all to devour every last inch of her home when we were in college. It’s pure magic and when you layer on a wedding rich in beauty and style, well, the city just comes to life that much more. With photography from Amy Arrington, spend some time in these gorgeous galleries.

From the bride…Fall is our favorite time of the year so October was the perfect month for our wedding. We love the colors and cooler temperatures during this time. Both of us grew up in Richmond Hill, a small community right outside of Savannah. We decided on downtown Savannah for our wedding because of its beauty and history. We knew we wanted an outdoor ceremony and a reception in the same location so the Charles Morris Center at Trustees Garden was the perfect venue. The wedding was a little vintage with a bit of an Asian touch and we wanted it to be fun and a little more laid back.

The ceremony took place outside just before sunset and afterwards our guest enjoyed a delicious southern buffet and dancing indoors. We are so blessed to have wonderful family and friends who helped make our day extra special. They gathered crepe myrtle branches and berries to construct our ceremony arch, cut and polished the cedar slice which served as our cake stand, created beautiful floral arrangements, and made leaves to attach to the apples which served as place cards and parting gifts for our guests. It was a perfect day!
