The Gastonian Savannah | Brice Hotel Reception
Irenea and Ben traveled from Massachusetts to be married at the beautiful Gastonian in Historic Savannah! The wedding was perfect and intimate with just family and a few close friends.
Irena decided to go with a ‘first look’ so that we would have time to get photos around Savannah before the ceremony.
I always love when a first look is planned because it is such a sweet private moment between the bride and groom. Ironically, a first look is one of the very few moments where a bride and groom get to enjoy each other’s company by themselves because the rest of the day is filled with family and friends that can’t help but share their love and excitement with the newlyweds!
The Gastonian has these amazing ivy steps that were the perfect backdrop for the first look. Ben and Irena were adorable. Afterwards, we had plenty of time to explore nearby Forsyth Park and the surrounding squares to get some stunning photos of Irena and Ben!
Back to the Gastonian for the ceremony in the garden which was short and sweet. Then toasts, cake and dancing under the Pergola.
Next was trolley ride to dinner at Pacci, the exquisite restaurant at The Kimpton Brice Hotel. Irena had her vision for the flowers and table setting for months before her big day. The pictures below of her face as she is seeing everything for the first time is priceless.
It was absolutely the most stunning table I had ever seen! The flowers, china, linen, candles…. could not have been more gorgeous!
After dinner we hopped over to the sqaure for a few more photo opps with family and friends.
I had such fun with these two and their families. Definitely a day filled with love and laughter, two of my favorite things!
