Emily and Michael’s downtown Savannah wedding was nothing short of absolutely gorgeous! From their first look on Bay Street to their Ceremony and Reception at the Georgia State Railroad Museum, they had such a timeless and classic Savannah wedding. Planned and Co-ordinated by Carlson’s Premier Events, the venue and decor was stunning! Emily and Michael made their day just how they wanted it and had a blast as they were surround by family and friends. Here are a handful of my favorites from their big day!
It’s easy to have something “blue” on your wedding day when both your shoes and ring box are blue. :-) I love it that Emily chose to bring along her own The Mrs. Box! I HIGHLY recommend purchasing one of these ring boxes for all brides (unless you already have some sort of keepsake box that is special to you). These ring boxes are not only beautiful to use for detail photos, but they are well made and will last a looooong time. You can store your ring in it for years to come and use it as a family heirloom if there comes a day to pass your ring down to a future generation. The best part is, they come in a wide variety of colors, so you can choose one to accent your wedding colors, or just choose your personal favorite!
I love it when bride’s get matching PJ’s or robes for their girls! Such a fun item for all of the ladies to enjoy after the wedding is over.
Emily looked absolutely STUNNING when she was finished getting ready. I just had to grab a few shots of her in the bridal suite before we left for the First Look! She did a great job choosing a getting ready location that had a lot of natural light coming in from the windows. Lighting and space to move around is key for comfortability during the getting ready process, as well as providing a great space for photos!
We had a great variety of Savannah backdrops for shooting the First Look and Bride + Groom portraits down on Bay Street. I love the mix of oak trees with the old historic buildings downtown! Plus, the bridal party had the opportunity to see the city while riding around on a trolley to head over to the venue.
Y’all, it’s hard work being a ring bear and a flower girl!!! These little cuties totally stole the show coming down the aisle!
The ceremony set up at the Georgia State Railroad Museum is just so pretty!
Check out how gorgeous the inside of this historic building is! Carlson’s Premier Events did an excellent job bringing the space to life!
Emily had a blast out on the dance floor with her guests!
Not gonna lie, this was one of my favorite exit shots to date!! I saw the set up in my head; just as the sun was going down the sky had turned a deep blue. With the twinkle lights overhead it made it such a beautiful spot to have this fun celebration!
(Pro tip: We don’t always do exits at the very end of the night; we sometimes opt to do them when the light in the sky is just right and before guests start to trickle out for the maximum amount of people in the photos). :-)
Emily and Michael, thank you again for allowing me to capture your beautiful day!!! You guys are the best!
