Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Ascension American Legion Savannah Wedding Photographer

I couldn’t have imagined a better way to start my wedding season than with Amelia & Danny’s beautiful wedding.  The March sun shone warm as the girls prepped in this lovely downtown home.

Savannah Wedding PhotographerI was in love with Amelia’s blush Badgley Mischkas and sash…..and the beautiful pleating on her gown.Savannah Wedding PhotographerHer invitations were designed using vintage flower prints – designed and printed by Creative Approach.Savannah Wedding PhotographerThanks to Sylvia Griggs for hair and Lynn Quann for gorgeous makeup.Savannah Wedding PhotographySavannah Wedding PhotographySavannah Wedding PhotographySavannah Wedding PhotographerThe bridesmaids looked fabulous in their lavender and navy gowns – such lovely ladies!Savannah Wedding PhotographerHarvey Designs created the gorgeous florals – I will never tire of blush pink – its just such a sweet, classic color!Savannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerMartin captured some great moments with Danny and the guys.Savannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerThe ceremony was held at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Ascension.Savannah Wedding PhotographerI just love this little moment of Amelia peeking out from the elevator!Savannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerFavorite.Savannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerGuests enjoyed an Oglethorpe Trolley ride to the American Legion for the reception.Savannah Wedding PhotographerI must say that the American Legion has become one of my favorite inside venues.  Its spacious, beautiful and bright white (i.e. great for photography!).  Now, it was a huge labor of love to bring Amelia’s vision for her reception to life.  She wanted to bring the look of a garden inside and she also wanted to have mismatched china place settings.  Her sweet mother began to scour thrift stores, buy on ebay and attend antique auctions to find the amount of china needed to make this happen.  She now has over 250 place settings as well as cake plates, dessert platters, teapots – the whole shebang – and has started her own antique china rental company – Lillian’s China.  Her collection is amazing and available for any event, big or small – check her out!!Savannah Wedding PhotographerThe table numbers used the same vintage flower prints as the invites and were also printed by Creative Approach.Savannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerHarvey Designs did an amazing job at styling the event with amazing florals, making the inside garden a reality.  I loved the escort card station!  And Victoria at First City Events made everything come together seamlessly – what a sweetie and joy to work with!Savannah Wedding PhotographerAmelia’s step dad even built the stands for the lanterns.Savannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerDanny isn’t really the cake type of guy – so instead of a groom’s cake, he opted to serve crab cakes as the hors d’oeuvres – this was the groom’s “cake.”  I thought this was genius!  Afterwards, guests enjoyed a yummy Southern family style dinner catered by the ever amazing Nick Mueller.Savannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerMollie Stone created the beautiful (and delicious) wedding cake – served on lovely little antique plates!Savannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerThe Sapphire Bullets band kept the party going with great classics.Savannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerSavannah Wedding PhotographerAmelia & Danny – words cannot describe enough the pleasure it has been to get to know you two and your family.  I just love you, your mom and your sister – you know I am always up for donning my gloves and hats for tea with y’all!!  I will jump at any chance to come play with the dishes :)  All the best of luck to you!!
