Jennifer & Brendan live in New York but Jennifer couldn’t get the thought of a Southern wedding day out of her head. Out of all of the cities in the South, why Savannah? Jennifer attended Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) and was immediately smitten by Savannah’s oak tress, Spanish moss and Southern hospitality. We are so excited that this beautiful Southern wedding day is currently featured in the 1st printed edition of Dear Gray Magazine!
With a degree in interior design, Jennifer wanted a day that was posh, classic and feminine. Her bridesmaids donned blush BHDLN dresses with bouquets filled with soft ivory, pale pink and hints of citrus. The bride wore Leanne Marshall with a chunky bouquet full of mini succulents and zealous pink peonies.
Brendan wore a classic black suit and a modern skinny tie. His groomsmen flanked him with the ultimate classic Southern linen suits paired with tweed J. Crew bowties.
We were truly so blessed this wedding day. As photographers, light is so vital to dreamy wedding day portraits. We truly couldn’t have asked for better light on this wedding day. Photographing the bride and her bridesmaids in Forsyth Park was a dream. Light literally danced among them and we were able to capture the dreamiest sun-drenched photos.
Being a film photographer, we so eagerly seek out amazing light. Regardless of what format you use (film or digital) light is so important. The angle of light is important. The reflection of light is important. As an amateur photographer, you put your subject outdoors. You photograph them. You smile. You move on. But as we have truly honed in on our craft, we’ve begun taking our time and seeking out the perfect light. The white columns and concrete ground provide an all natural light box for illimuntaed portraits.
The two wed in historic Chatham Square with the bride arriving by a horse drawn carriage. While the guests waited for the bride’s arrival, they were treated to pre-ceremony cocktails in the form of mini bottles of Lamarca prosecco and striped paper straws. Standing in front of vintage doors, they said their “I dos” surrounded by their closest friends and family.
