Nicole and Zachary had an amazing wedding in Columbia square. We began with getting ready photos at The Marshall House, then headed over to Reynold’s Square and the Olde Pink House for wedding party photos and Nicole’s bridal portraits. After the ceremony we then did group photos in Columbia Square and at the Davenport House. The couple then returned to the Marshall House by horse and carriage to join guests for cocktail hour and appetizers. They celebrated with dinner followed by toasts, a sundae bar and dancing. At the end of the night, Nicole and Zach had a grand sparkler send off onto Broughton Street. We had the best time getting to know this couple! Congratulations!

Planning: Nicole said “I had so much fun planning all of the details of the wedding. I am a really creative person so it was fun to do something that I liked and use my creativity for the details. I liked it so much that I want to get into wedding planning and am already planning a friends wedding in February! For my bridesmaids, I encouraged them to choose their own dresses because everyone’s body is different and I wanted them to feel comfortable. I gave them three rules: The dress had to be within the color scheme, it had to be something that they loved, and something that they would wear again! For the guys, we didn’t care for the selections offered at rental shops. It actually worked out to be less money to buy them than to rent them! It was an added bonus that the guys may even wear parts of their outfits again. Zach and the groomsmen opted not to wear jackets because its just too hot in Savannah for all of that fabric! Zach really wanted to give his groomsmen watches. We selected watches with a leather bands and dark gray faces to compliment their attire.”
