Patricia & John selected the historic Hamilton Turner Inn as the location for their wedding ceremony. We began with getting ready photos of the couple together in the Noble Jones Room. It was great to photograph this sweet couple as they interacted with Patricia straightening John’s tie and the couple shared a few moments of alone time before guest began to arrive to help them with their finishing touches. After the ceremony everyone enjoyed champagne then ventured out into Lafayette Square which was full of life with all types of flowers in bloom. Patricia and John took photos with friends and family and had together portraits at The Lafayette Fountain and  near The Andrew Lowe House. The group spent the afternoon mingling in the historic square before everyone headed off by via carriage to a wonderful celebration dinner at Vic’s on the River. It was a lovely day for this spectacular couple.

I really enjoyed my evening with Leonardo & Catherine! Their wedding ceremony took place at the Tybee Island Beach Inlet. Its a more secluded part of the island and was a very natural setting.  They had the most beautiful ceremony near the ocean and said their vows as the tide drifted inland for the evening. After the ceremony, we took group photos with their guests, then together portraits near the Inlet’s pier and in various places around the beach. We all agreed it was the most romantic sunset and so fitting for this couple who is so in love!  After portraits, the newlyweds joined guests for a lovely dinner and live entertainment at the Soho South Cafe on West Liberty. Leonardo is from New York and Catherine is from the UK and they now reside in the historic district of Savannah.  I welcome both of them to our beautiful city and wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Tybee Wedding Beach Sunset Ceremony

 

 

We met in November 2012 during a trip to Argentina and Chile. We spent two weeks together exploring Patagonia; hiking, kayaking and meeting penguins. Leonardo is from New York City and Catherine is from the United Kingdom. We now live together in Savannah where Leonardo is currently stationed.

We decided to have our wedding on Tybee Island because we walked there together when Catherine first came to visit the US and loved it ever since! It was the perfect location for a sunset wedding. We would recommend this location to anyone wanting a quiet, secluded area for photographs.

We chose to have a small wedding with only a few friends present as we plan to celebrate with our friends and family later this year in New York City. As the wedding in September will be our main celebration, we decided to keep our wedding on Tybee more informal. I chose a white dress with bold blue flowers on it. This was matched with a bouquet of blue wildflowers. The teapot attached to the bouquet was my “something borrowed” from one of my bridesmaids for our September celebration and symbolises my very British love of tea. It was also a great reminder of friends back “across the pond” on our special day. My fun “something blue” accent was my manicure from La Belle Nail Salon. After our ceremony and photos we enjoyed an intimate dinner with friends at one of our favourite restaurants in Savannah, Soho, where they had a live pianist playing.

I met Heather & Ryan at the Kehoe house for their ceremony with Reverend Schulte on the mansion’s winding side porch. Afterwards we decided to take photos moved to Columbia square which is located right in front of the home. We then took photos in the lovely adjacent garden area which was blooming with every imaginable shade of hydrangeas. Heather decided to take off her shoes since she was recovering from a recent foot surgery. She has such natural beauty and I think it suited her well!  We took additional photos by the Davenport house and garden then moved back to the porch area of The Kehoe house where the couple had their cake cutting and champagne. It was a beautiful, intimate wedding. Congratulations to this amazing couple!

Great photos! Love that dress!

Jeremy is one of the sweetest guys. When we first began talking, I immediately knew he was head over heels in love with Kylie! He planned  the most amazing wedding proposal in one of the most romantic locations in Savannah. I should first explain that Kylie and Jeremy live four hours away in Columbus, GA. Kylie had actually planned a surprise birthday weekend for Jeremy in Savannah, but unbeknownst to her, he found out about her plans! He had been planning to propose anyways and since she was distracted planning for his birthday,  he felt that it would be the perfect opportunity to catch her completely off guard. On the day of the proposal, Jeremy told Kylie that he just wanted to take a quick drive out to Wormsloe to drive to see the  famous live oak promenade. They arrived to Wormsloe and everything went just as planned; everyone is always taking photos there, so Kylie didn’t even suspect a thing when she saw me at the designated propose sight taking photos of the trees! He proposed, and she immediately exclaimed “Yes!”  It was fantastic to be a part of this! Congrats and best wishes!

How did you meet?

Kylie: We met through mutual friends while living in Germany about 3 years ago. Neither one of us was in a place to start a relationship, but we remained friends online and over the phone until we found ourselves back in the states. He was living in Tennessee and I was in Columbus, Georgia. He ended up finding his way to my city while looking for a job. He just came down and never left. Just when it seemed like we were headed in different directions fate brought us to the same spot in the world. We decided to give dating a try and here we are 2 years later!

Where are your home cities?
Jeremy: I grew up in Ripley, TN. Its a small farm town that fames itself for growing the best tomatoes. I grew up in the fields and joined the military when I was 22. I’ve never looked back. I still love going back to see where I began my life and remember how much I’ve grown and achieved.

Kylie: My father was in the military, so I had the privilege of living all over the place, but Columbus, Georgia is where I been the majority of my life and where I consider home.

 

Jeremy,What made you select the Wormsloe as a location for you engagement session? Kylie loves live oak trees with Spanish Moss. For the last two years, every time she would see one she would say “Baby, look! Those are my favorite trees! Aren’t they SO beautiful?” So when I found out she was surprising me with a trip to Savannah, I remembered the road from the Forrest Gump scene was filmed there. I thought that it would be the perfect place to propose. It was beautiful and secluded. I wanted it to be a private moment that we could share. It had to be something that shed never forget!

Kylie, Where you shocked? I could not have been more blown away. I thought I was planning a surprise weekend getaway for us and for Jeremy’s 33rd birthday. What a thoughtful girlfriend, right? Well little did I know he and my two best friends had been scheming behind my back to make this the proposal city. Neither one of us had ever been to Savannah and I was looking forward to having a new place to consider “ours”. Both being married previously it made it difficult to find vacation spots neither of us had ever been to. I was planning dinner reservations, historic sightings, and even a ghost tour. Jeremy is a lover of history and battle locations given that he is prior military, so when he told me he wanted to check out a historic site I was not at all suspicious. He had gotten me dressed up under the rouse that we had brunch reservations at a pretty fancy place. I love getting dolled up and who doesn’t love brunch? so I did not fight him on that one bit. He said the historic site was en route to brunch and he wanted to go ahead and stop before all the tourists got there and out of convenience of having to come back that direction since we were spending most of our time in downtown Savannah. Again, not suspicious at all. We got to Wormsloe and it is just absolutely stunning. The row of live oaks can only be described as breathtaking. We parked and began walking down the road under the canopy of trees, me assuming we are just exploring the plantation, but he with grander plans. We approached the white picket fence and he began telling me all sorts of sweet things, which is not out of the ordinary, he’s just a sweet guy all the time. When he took my hand and proceeded down on one knee I felt so overwhelmed with emotion. I couldn’t even process what was happening so my natural instinct was to just cry! When I saw he hired a photographer per my specific instructions from our discussion of engagement a long long time ago it made me cry even harder. (I guess he does pay attention to me when I talk about girly stuff!) I hope Nikki was able to salvage anything from the ugly cry face I had to have been doing! I was so overjoyed and I still feel butterflies just telling the story. It was so romantic and spontaneous. It could not have been a more perfect day.

What do you like most about Savannah? How does it compare to other places that you have lived?

Kylie: I love everything about Savannah. I love the beautiful live oak trees, the architecture of the homes, the haunted history, and the not so haunted history. I love the river street scene and all the fun restaurants. I love the carriage rides around the squares and the hilarious tour guide we had on the Old Savannah Tours. I loved the hospitality of all the people and the Pink Lady cocktail at the Olde Pink House. I have live in Georgia most of my life and just 4 hours down the street. I cannot believe it has taken me this long to come down and experience all Savannah has to offer. What I love most about Savannah is this is now our tradition and a new place to make memories for many years to come.

Jeremy: I love the history and architecture of the city. It feels like I’m taking a step back a few hundred years. I am a world traveler. I have seen places that most people only dream about. I have to say that Savannah is the most beautiful city I’ve ever been to. It’s my new favorite place. I see us retiring there when we grow old.

Priceless!!!!!

Lindsay and Justin had a romantic and intimate wedding on Jones Street. We began with candid pre-wedding portraits in Lafayette Square. After portraits, we went over to the ceremony site, located in a secluded garden at 16 West Jones Street. The couple said their own vows in a wedding ceremony that was officiated by Helen P. Bradley. After the ceremony, Lindsay and Justin enjoyed time with their immediate family in the garden and celebrated with a champagne toast and appetizers. Later in the evening there was a dinner in honor of the couple over at over at Elizabeth’s on 37th. Everything was beautiful about their wedding and it was such a happy occasion for everyone involved!
