I first met Reilly when she was interning for Savannah Magazine before she moved into an assistant editor position with them. As a wedding photographer, I worked a lot with the Savannah Weddings Magazine back in the day, and our friendship blossomed over dressing up, cocktails, and concerts. Then, Reilly moved away to Atlanta and met the man of her dreams, Alex. Their wedding planning fell prey to Covid, and after multiple date changes AND venue changes, they finally married last November at the Railroad Museum, a personal favorite of mine!
Knowing how chic Reilly’s style is, it’s no surprise that she and Alex looked amazing on their wedding day! Reilly wore an Alyssa Kristin wedding gown that was simple but fashionable. Her sheath gown featured a square neckline and deep open back, and she completed the look with a gorgeous cathedral veil from Etsy. Her veil was covered in dozens of pearls, which paired so well with her freshwater pearl earrings. Alex matched her with a custom navy suit from Sid Mashburn. Together, they were one good-looking couple!
Meanwhile, their wedding party showed off great style too. The bridesmaids wore green dresses from Jenny Yoo and fur capes, and the groomsmen wore gray suits with ties that matched Alex’s suit. I loved the final look of everyone together! I love seeing different wedding party looks, and when couples have fun with accessories.
After getting married outside with a gorgeous white rose and greenery background, Reilly and Alex moved to their chic wedding reception, which continued the theme of white roses and greenery. They added dust napkins and table numbers to complete the Fall look.
I love the Railroad Museum because it creates such gorgeous backgrounds. You get multiple spaces to choose from since when you book this space, you get access to everything. The Blacksmith Shop has industrial vibes, with ironwork and original brick floors. The vast outdoor areas feature the original brick structures and the 125-foot tall smokestack that the venue is famous for. Reilly and Alex chose to hold their reception in the Blacksmith Shop, and the amazing exposed brick really added to their décor.
I knew Reilly’s wedding would be perfection, and it was! This wedding had those perfect Fall vibes, a Savannah vendor dream team, and an epic smoke bomb end-of-the-night send-off!
Reilly and Alex relocated to London a few short weeks after their wedding for Alex’s job so now they are living their best life in Europe! I’m so happy for them, and I’m so glad I got to work with them on their wedding at the Georgia State Railroad Museum.
If you’re planning your own Georgia wedding, I’d love to hear all about it! Let us know what you’re thinking and how we can make your wedding day photography stress-free!
