Real Wedding: J+W
Savannah is an amazing place. The old colonial town located in the southern state of Georgia, USA is overflowing with charm. Live music at every turn, good food (if you follow me on FB you’ll know already about the waffles and doughnuts) and enchanting historic houses. The streets are shadowed by alleys of enormous Live Oaks that are draped with haunting Spanish moss. I could see why Wendy and Jeff chose the town as a host for their wedding!
I first met this lovely couple in Paris where Jeff ask Wendy if she would be his wife. I had the honor to secretly photograph her reaction from a nearby bush as she said, “YES”! You can see the photos here: Surprise Proposal in Paris
I was very happy when Wendy and Jeff asked me if I wanted to continue the relationship by photographing their wedding in Savannah. Not only because it would be a wonderful occasion to travel to the States, but also I love it when my past clients come back to me for more photography. It’s such a complement! On top of that, when I heard the wedding was to take place in the old railway station I thought to myself, cool!
The day started in a stunning house on West Liberty Street. I had been there the night before for the welcome party and was looking forward to the change of scene from photographing weddings in a French chateau. The girls were busy getting ready on the first floor while the boys were in the basement apartment.
Once ready, the girls and I hopped on a local trolly (a sort of tram on wheels) and headed to Forsyth Park where Jeff was already waiting for ‘the first look’ of Wendy in her wedding dress.
Onward to the Savannah Railroad Museum for the ceremony in the Blacksmith Shop…
As the sun was making its last appearance we were on track to the Roundhouse Overnight Shed. Among the restored wagons they danced to live music…
