Intimate Elopement in Monterey Square

August 2, 2022

Peyton and Noah had the cutest elopement with their immediate families! The two wanted a unique experience for their guests, so they chose to do a styled picnic in Monterey Square instead of a traditional dinner. The two love going on picnics together, so it was the perfect way to do what they loved for their wedding.

One of the best parts of Savannah is that you travel around easily. Everything is within walking distance of each other, so you can easily take advance of all the unique backdrops without having to get transportation. Of course, you can also hop on a Pedicab if you want to skip walking!

Classic Elopement Style

I loved Peyton’s wedding gown! It was a sheath gown by Morilee, covered with lace, including a lace court train, and it was perfect for walking around Downtown Savannah. She looked beautiful and finished her look with a pair of white cowboy boots! Her gorgeous bouquet by Hey Jude Florals featured white anemones and orange ranunculus. Noah looked snazzy, too, with his fitted blue suit and floral printed tie.

I love it when my elopement couples take my advice and infuse their day with the meaningful details and moments that a wedding day should include. This allows your day to feel LIKE YOU and showcase a whole story about your relationship. Peyton included the sweetest meaningful treasures during her getting ready, like her grandmother’s candlesticks. And the couple both wore cowboy boots as part of their ensemble.

Elopement in Monterey Square

As we walked to their ceremony in Forsyth Park, we made sure to get plenty of couples’ pictures. Some spots included Lafayette Square, with its iconic copper fountain.

Peyton and Noah’s elopement was simple but lovely. They got married in Forsyth Park, under a large oak tree coated in Spanish Moss. Peyton’s sister officiated the wedding, which was a surprise to their family.

After pictures around Forsyth Park and the garden, we walked to nearby Montery Square for a picnic. Monterey Square is a gorgeous little oasis in the middle of Downtown Savannah, very close to my beloved Forsyth Park, where I love to photograph elopements! This meant we were able to get some beautiful photos throughout the park and Downtown Savannah. There’s nothing better than being able to walk around in style while taking photos with Savannah’s unique city architecture.

I absolutely loved their styled picnic! They were able to pop some champagne and enjoy some quality time together with an elegant charcuterie board and desserts. It was such a cute idea for ending an elopement.

It was so wonderful to be able to work with Peyton and Noah, and I hope I get to work with them again in the future. If you’re planning your own elopement, I’d love to hear from you and be able to capture that amazing day for you! Say hello and tell me all about your plans!
