Hannah and Matt were married at the gorgeous Tybee Island Wedding Chapel. We took the pre-ceremony formals in Forsyth Park then headed out to the beach for the wedding and reception. Everything was absolutely beautiful!

“The day: My inspiration for the wedding came from the location. This was a destination wedding for us, and I wanted to appeal to that very old world southern charm that is quintessential of the Savannah area. My first idea came after we visited the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel and I was transported back in time by the exposed beams in the vaulted ceiling and the deep mahogany pews. I knew this was the place I wanted to be wed, but I had to come up with an overall theme. I thought of Georgia and its history of agriculture and plantations. With this in mind, my idea for the table cards came to me, and I decided to create vintage inspired botanical illustrations. I painted each table card in watercolor myself using antique prototypes. I chose peaches, pale pinks, robin’s egg blue, cream lace and burlap as the pallet of colors and textures to create my wedding. My dress was an ivory lace frock with a keyhole back that reminded me of early 20th century fashion. My jewelry was the real centerpiece though, it was from BHLDN, and earned me more compliments than anything else I had on that day. I printed our wedding programs and dinner menus on recycled paper and gave them botanical illustrated borders. Our DIY escort cards were inspired by vintage price tags. The wedding guests took home mini jars of local honey, which I covered in floral fabric and tied with jute string. My handmade wedding cake topper was inspired by antique paper dolls and sat atop a delicious hummingbird cake. For our table centerpieces, I collected blue mason jars from flea markets and used these as our vases. I told the florist I wanted our centerpieces to look like they had “just been picked from the garden”. Our food was from Thrive Cafe and was an organic and locally grown picnic of mac n’ cheese, black bean burgers, pulled pork, and corn salad. I was delighted the day of the wedding when I finally got to see a year’s worth of designing, creating and planning come to fruition. I again felt transported in time to a turn of the century southern fête, and I could not have been happier.”
