I was never the little girl that had my dream wedding all planned out…that is until I saw the garden where our wedding would take place at the Harper Fowlkes House in historic Savannah, Georgia, 3 months before our July 3rd wedding date!

The second my fabulous wedding planner Morgan {Morgan Gallo Events} brought me to the house I felt as if I had stepped into the pages of one of my favorite childhood books, “The Secret Garden.” The house (an old daughters of the revolution home), the tall walls, and the sparkling crape myrtle trees with filigree lights draped across the garden, were simply enchanting and I knew this was it, my dream place to get married!

I grew up in Savannah, Georgia, and wanted our 60 guests to have the utmost southern experience! The seventy degree weather on our July wedding day was unheard of and was the perfect start to our festive occasion. We wanted the wedding to be intimate, relaxing, fun, filled with laughter and love. We knew we wanted a non-traditional wedding and above all else, a celebration of our 6 year journey.

I think the most special and unique part of our wedding was our non-traditional ceremony. Being interracial and interfaith we knew we wanted to just stay true to our love and who we are as a couple. We started the evening off with a cocktail hour where we mingled with all of our guests over tomato sandwiches, cream cheese puffs with cucumber, summer spring rolls, watermelon gazpacho soup shooters, and dijon chicken puffs. When it was time for our ceremony, our wedding officiant and our long time friend (who wore a Beatles tie to marry us in!) asked everyone to gather around us in a circle as we listened to the words he had written for us and said “I do” in unison. In the emotion of it all, I even managed to put Joe’s ring on the wrong hand, laughing incessantly through out the entire ceremony.

Are you hooked? We have much, much more to share with you from Tali and Joe's Savannah garden wedding in just a bit. You'll LOVE her second wedding dress! In the meantime, you can see more for yourself over on their fantastic photographer's website! Allison Reisz Photography: Tali and Joe
