A Georgia inspired wedding | The Westin | Savannah, GA

When Southern Bride put out a call for state inspired wedding shoots, French Knot Studios and I stepped to the plate.  Not wanting to do the overdone “peach”, we armed ourselves with other Georgia icons such as honey, peanuts and cotton and let our color palette of peaches, corals and pinks give nod to the state’s famous fruit.  Miss Wyolene looked to the honey bee for inspiration for these wonderful invitations.  The hexagonal shape of the honey comb gives them a modern edge that we love!

French Knot Studios proposes to include a blank card in your invitations on which guests can write a sweet sentiment or well wish.  The card would then be returned with the RSVP so that you could line your ceremony aisle, doubling for beautiful decor! The Westin Wedding Savannah

Dom & Sam – Isle of Hope Engagement Session – Savannah, GA

These two Florida babes met while attending UF and for the past 8 years they have been inseparable – sharing their love for history while making their own.

They met me in Savannah for their engagement session and we took advantage of the beautiful scenery that Bethesda and Isle of Hope has to offer.  Samantha has an amazing sense of style and is an incredible beauty and one could get lost in Dom’s ocean eyes.  And so, needless to say, I could have photographed these two loves forever.

Mallory & Bradley – The Watson House Wedding – Emerald Isle, NC

Mallory & Bradley‘s was the very first wedding ever that I had to deal with every wedding photographer’s dread – RAIN!  But Mallory and Bradley did not let the afternoon pour stop them from being radiant, sweet and nothing short of perfect.  The Watson House provided the most gorgeous backdrop for the day and offered guests cover while we waited for a break in the rain – I love that Mallory HAD to have her ceremony outside – good girl!

The hour wait for the rain to pass so that we could hold the ceremony outside was worth it! The grounds at The Watson House overlooking the water are beautiful and Mallory could not have been happier to finally see her groom.
