Bethany and Jesse’s destination wedding highlighted the charm and romance of Savannah, Georgia – a location with both family ties and vacation memories. The historic and natural beauty of this southern city set the most perfect backdrop for this couple to say their vows! Although the couple initially planned to have the wedding ceremony in Savannah's Forsyth Park, a quick pivot was made to a nearby private garden due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The private garden screamed romance with its natural awe and wonder. To make sure we accentuated rather than transform this incredible space, we chose soft colors + patterns with subtle pops of bold burgundy flowers.
A bold floral design wasn’t all this couple had in mind for a party. This couple celebrated tying the knot with a second line band, giving off a New Orleans vibe, that led a parade featuring the newlyweds through the streets of Savannah and back to Forsyth Park for a final round of celebration at their venue, The Mansion on Forsyth.
We wanted to carry the intimacy from the private garden inside and continue the formal, romantic vibe through to the reception space while continuing to keep the fun atmosphere (which included a bourbon and cigar bar)! To accomplish the romantic vibe at the reception, we canvassed the venue with subtle pink linens, plenty of lit candles, gold metals, and deep burgundy/pink tones in the table arrangements.
The romance and fun felt on the wedding day was enough to carry us to the moon! Despite the challenges faced planning a wedding during COVID, we made sure every touch remained intimate, personal and vibrantly celebratory. We were thrilled to partner with Gray Harper Florals them to make sure the whole show went down without a hitch and fulfill the couple's wildest destination wedding dreams!
