Tricia Huddas & Co. Real Savannah Wedding - Brittany and Matt, Part II

Brittany loves bold colors, and built her wedding color scheme around reds, oranges, pinks and greens. Red was the stand-out color with the bridesmaids and junior bridesmaid wearing red dresses, and the groomsmen clad in red vests. I would definitely characterize the wedding flowers from A to Zinnias as bold and beautiful!

At the the ceremony’s conclusion Brittany's mother had a surprise planned – and I wish I had a picture of Brittany's and Matt’s faces! She called me about two months before the wedding hoping to do something special for the couple in the form of a butterfly release for the conclusion of the ceremony. She found a supplier on the Internet and had the butterflies shipped to me the day before the wedding. The surprise was a great success as each guest released his butterfly on perfect cue from the minister. At first confused, Brittany and Matt were elated once they saw all of the beautiful butterflies. One even walked out with them on Brittany's bouquet!

Even better than the butterflies, was Brittany and Matt’s choice in a recessional song – Celebration by Cool and the Gang. They are a young couple and they wanted people to know that this was a celebration and they were about to have some fun!

I will let you in on a little secret of mine - I was extremely nervous about the butterfly release and told her mother so! I had organized a butterfly release before, and about 3 butterflies actually “flew.” The rest were alive, but just sort of fell to the ground upon their release. They eventually got up and flew off…but too late for big impact that the couple was looking for, and most of the guests just started laughing that their flightless butterfly rather then paying attention to the newly married couple!
