Tricia Huddas & Co. Real Wedding: Meredith and Mark

Meredith and Mark were married just a few weeks ago on a beautiful April day here in Savannah. I have to say that I am truly going to miss meeting with Meredith and her family! They have the most infectious laughs and when I was around them, I could not help but laugh right along with them. I can tell you that I had no need to ask the front desk where Meredith’s room was that day – I could hear her and her mother laughing and just followed the joyful sounds!

Meredith, her mother, the groom's mother and her maid of honor were getting their hair and make-up done in their hotel room by Savannah Day Spa. They were just enjoying the happy occasion and really taking in the day. Meredith was to wear a new wedding dress, but the veil had a meaningful history. It was the veil that her mother wore on her wedding day, and to add a special touch to the veil then, her mother – Sassy aka Grandma Farrar - had sewn on small pearls to match Meredith’s mother's dress. Following tradition, Meredith’s mother sewed clear sequins onto the veil match the sequin detail on Meredith’s dress.

The couple opted to see each other before the ceremony, and their amazing photographer, Jade McCully, shared these photos with us. They met in Emmet Park and walked around the park and Factors Walk area of historic Savannah.

The ceremony took place in Washington Square and the weather could not have been better - sunny, but not hot. They were wed by the bride's long-time family friend and pastor. Each had just one attendant, and walked down the aisle while the bride’s friend, Anna, played the violin. Her flowers were created by the talented team at Garden on the Square. The men wore classic blue seersucker suits - my favorite male attire for a casual, summer, Southern wedding!

A cocktail style reception took place at the Mulberry Inn. Mollie Stone created a stunning cake for the couple and the guests left messages in a Savannah coffee table book in lieu of a guest book. Everyone ate, drank and truly enjoyed the company of the happy couple and the beautiful April weather.

Congratulations Meredith and Mark, may laughter always be in your life!
