Destination Wedding Savannah, Georgia-Great Gatsby Wedding

FINALLY! I have been absolutely dying for the past few months to share my first destination wedding in Savannah, Georgia and now I can!! I first met Erin, Simon, and their adorable daughter at a family mini session. We got to talking and I found out they were engaged and getting married in February. Of course, me being me I just had to ask if they had a photographer! (They didn't and I mentally did a happy dance like a 5 year old!) We later met for coffee and began to plan all the details of traveling down with them to document their continuing love story in the Low Country!

Their wedding day was nothing short of beautiful emotions, sophisticated style, and southern charm! We visited the iconic Forsyth Park in downtown Savannah after the ceremony for the most stunning fountain backdrop and trees utterly dripping with glorious moss! 

Now it was time for the reception at Garibaldi's...which meant time for some added accessories for the bridal party and the guests because it was a GREAT GATSBY THEME!! Erin's jeweled head-piece and earrings she added were the perfect fit for a Gatsby party! 

For my first ever destination wedding, I couldn't have asked for a better couple, their families, and their friends to share in this experience! The thoughtfulness that was put into every detail of the festivities made everyone who traveled feel at home in Savannah, GA! Erin + Simon,  thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me the honor of photographing your dream destination wedding in the Low Country!

Oh, sweet Morgan!

You simply light up when you smile just from the kindness that you exude from within! I cannot wait to see how you continue to impact the world with your kindness, compassion, determination, smarts, and strength!  

So I was told about the Coca Cola truck that her Grandpa was going to be bringing to the second half of her session, but I had no idea what to expect! Let me tell you...the truck that I had conjured up in my mind did not even come close to the insanely vintage and bright yellow truck that awaited us downtown! I was blown away and it fit Morgan so perfectly! Her Grandpa was precious as can be and so proud of his truck, but more so his Granddaughter. 

Morgan's Mom also brought along a prop of her own that she had been saving! Remember when those Coca-Cola bottles/cans with everyones names on it were all the rage?! Well, her Mom looked and looked for one that said her name...but never found one! But guess what?! She found something that was even more fitting for this time in her life...GRAD! That bottle was such a thoughtful idea and was the exact little extra touch we needed to make this incredible session even more special!
