We met Robbi and Sean and began with getting ready photos at the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel. After a quick first look we took family portraits inside the chapel followed by candid wedding party photos outdoors. Robbi and Sean were one of the first weddings to host their reception in the chapel’s new main ball room which is beautiful and versatile. Robbi and Sean were so fun to work with as individuals and were radiant when we photographed them together! We enjoyed every aspect of their event and just loved being involved in their wedding day. Congratulations to this perfect couple!
About us: We were introduced by a mutual friend Ann Marie (she was one of our bridesmaids) at a sporting event. Sean and I became friends very quickly. Robbi is originally from Savannah, GA, but raised in Virginia for many years. Sean was raised in Budd Lake, NJ, and came to Savannah to attend Savannah College of Art and Design. We currently live on Wilmington Island. Sean works as a project director for Gonzalez Architects and he’s also works at Creative Catering. Robbi works for Qualified Plans,which is a Third Party Administrator (TPA) firm in Thunderbolt. Our favorite activities together are watching Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears games, watching movies, playing golf, darts, cooking and playing with our dog, Aedan.
How did you select Tybee Wedding Chapel as your Ceremony and Reception location? You were one of the first couples to have a wedding at their newly renovated reception location. We began by narrowing our choices down to 2 options. Our final deciding factors were based on convenience for guests, rental of extra equipment and the size of the venue. The Tybee Wedding Chapel was the best fit for us as a couple all of the details worked perfectly with our wedding plans.
What are some of your favorite local places that you recommend to others? Ele’ Restaurant, The Crab Shack, Huey’s, Henry’s Downtown, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Vinnie Van Gogo’s, Screamin’ Mimi’s
Where did you get the inspiration/ideas for the details? Our idea to use red accents came from Bride’s Magazine. For our wedding cake, we came across a photo of a wedding in North Carolina that had red accents. Our local bakery was able to re-create it for our wedding day. We immediately knew we really wanted to use Creative Catering for our Wedding Reception. Sean has worked for the company for several years , since age 19, when he first moved to Savannah to attend college at SCAD.
Do you have any advice to other couples who are in the process of planning their wedding? Do not stress about the little things! The day will happen whether or not everything is perfect according to the original plans. My matron of honor and sister,Rebecca was enormously helpful and supportive.
