The Harper Fowlkes House in Savannah, Georgia was the site of Tali and Joe's beautiful garden wedding this past July. If you're just joining us, be sure and look back at part one of this feature from Allison Reisz Photography {here}!

from Tali ... The second I saw my Sue Wong feather dress I knew it was my wedding dress. It was designed for her “Alice in Wonderland” collection and it was certainly very me! I decided on a second wedding dress, a shorter Carmen Marc Valvo dress that would be terrific for our waltz to Josh Groban’s “So She Dances,” a dress that turned out to be perfect for our carefully choreographed dips and all. Joe found his garden suit at J.Crew.

We had the best time walking around downtown Savannah with Allison Reisz and her husband Rich, our amazing photographers.

At our reception, we wanted to keep everything light and simple and we loved the idea of peach roses, white hydrangeas and white baby orchids on white textured tablecloths. Morgan added clear votives of varying heights and parasols that were in true southern style. We decided on candied apples as favors (a Savannah favorite) and had the most delicious red velvet, lemon, strawberry, and vanilla cupcakes as our wedding cake. Our place settings and table names were designed by Jennifer Borkowski based on David Yurman collections.

For dinner we had stations placed in little nooks throughout the garden with carved prime rib, lemon tarragon salmon, wild mushroom risotto, green bean casserole, garlic steamed vegetables, and cranberry salad.

The rest of the evening was spent dancing to our amazing jazz band as the sun set on our wonderful Savannah garden wedding!
