Laura and Joey met while she was in grad school and he was finishing up to graduate in August. After a year of long distance, Laura moved to Savannah, and the rest is history!
Laura and Joey didn’t want their wedding to feel stuffy, so the Georgia State Railroad Museum was the perfect option. The Georgia State Railroad Museum is one of the most popular and unique wedding venues in Savannah. With multiple spaces available, it is rustic and industrial, and a National Historic Landmark. While at first glance this doesn’t look like a space that can be anything other than rustic, Design Studio South transformed the space into an intimate and romantic reception. As a wedding photographer, I love seeing spaces transform!
Their emotional first look was done outside of The Mansion on Forsyth. The whole area around this gorgeous hotel offers the perfect backdrop. We moved to Forsyth Park for couple portraits and bridal party portraits. The azaleas in bloom were an extra special treat!
Their ceremony took place outside of the blacksmith shop at the Georgia State Railroad Museum, with touches of greenery in the floral arch and plants at the entrance of the aisle. They wanted it to have personal touches and included handwritten signs, and a mix of vintage and modern furniture.
Laura wore a lace Pronovias gown from Bleubelle Bridal, that had cap sleeves, and a long train. Her bridesmaids wore mix and match dusty blue gowns, a classic and timeless shade.
