Industrial venues are some of my favorite places in the world to get married. There’s just something about exposed brick walls juxtaposed with wedding day pretty that sends my heart into overdrive… every single time. So, when this lovely Roundhouse Railroad Museum affair came my way, it was like Christmas morning. One filled with DIY details, Baby’s Breath bouquets and an entire gallery of gorgeous images from LeeAnn Ritch Photography. Oh, and they served fried chicken. Which is beyond awesome. See so much more of the day right here.
From the Bride… We really wanted to give our guests a great Southern experience, Brian is from California and I am from Michigan – most of our guests came from across the United States and Canada. We picked the Roundhouse Railroad Museum because it was ideally located downtown Savannah and it was such a great historic space which is what Savannah is all about. The historic brick walls and quaint garden gave the perfect backdrop to our wedding.
We kept things simple and did most of the decorating ourselves. Our families came into town early to help get everything ready. My sisters, mother, and father helped us sort through ten bunches of Baby’s Breath to create the centerpieces and bouquets – I picked Baby’s Breath because it has such a whimsical feel to it and it is far from traditional which we also liked. I found out from my sister later that Baby’s Breath means “eternal love,” I can’t think of a better flower to have at a wedding.
Continuing with the Southern theme, we used fresh Georgia peaches as escort card holders and served fried chicken and shrimp and grits for dinner. Guests raved about how sweet and delicious the peaches were! By doing a lot of the decorating and planning ourselves we were really able to make the day something that was very much our own which we could then share with our friends and family.
