Dear Fellow Savannah Event Professionals...

Some of you have heard, but for those who have not, we want to pass along some news about one of our own. Ricky Moore, one of the Savannah Special Events delivery leads was in a terrible car accident over the weekend of June 18. So many of you have met him but may not actually know him. He is currently in the ICU and the doctors recently put him under a chemically induced coma to allow his brain time to heal along with his other injuries.

Ricky and his wife, seen below with their oldest son, had another baby just days before the accident, and this is an extremely hard time on their family. He is a gentle soul and in need of your thoughts and prayers to pull through this because it is going to be a long, long recovery.

Ricky and the delivery guys at Savannah Special Events do more than just deliver and setup their rentals - they help us unload our cars, show up early, and help us out when they really don't have to. Let's show our support and help Ricky and his family through this tough time.

An account has been setup at Wells Fargo Bank to collect donations - Charles Moore Donation Fund: Account # 7964140623. The Moore family needs our help now more than ever. Anything will help.

Tricia Huddas & Co. Real Savannah Wedding: Tara and Eric

Tara and Eric were married during an intimate ceremony on May 21st at Bethesda Home For Boys, with a small dinner reception following at the Olde Pink House. The Bethesda chapel served as the ceremony venue and was decorated with candles by the altar and flowers lining the aisle. A memory candle was placed at the front of the chapel in memory of Eric's late mother, which provided an extra special and unique touch to the ceremony. Tara looked very elegant in her ivory lace gown, and she was filled with excitement to be marrying the love of her life!

After a guided tour of historic Savannah, guests were taken to The Olde Pink House for the reception for an intimate dinner with close friends and family. The decorations were simple but beautiful, with candles lining the center of the table and the fireplace mantle. Thank you to Garden on the Square for providing the amazing flowers for the ceremony and reception! Kerry O'Connor Cake Design provided the marvelous and gorgeous cake for the reception.

Tricia Huddas & Co. Real Savannah Wedding: Jennifer and Michael

Jennifer and Michael's beautiful April 30 wedding took place at the Plantation Club at the Landings on Skidaway Island. You could tell that Jennifer and Michael were so happy and in love from the smiles they wore all day! The ceremony was held outside the club along the banks of a small pond. Savannah Special Events by Ranco provided the seating for the ceremony and linens for the reception.

Amy and her team of wonderful designers at Harvey Designs outdid themselves with this one making the location even more beautiful with their amazing floral creations. There had to be over 100,000 flowers in the entire reception area! No two centerpieces were the same, which made the reception that much more unique. Kerry O'Connor Cake Design provided the yummy and beautiful wedding cake, which looked elegant next to all the floral arrangements. Guests were entertained on the dance floor all night long by the rockin' sounds provided by Andrew Thielen Big Band. Hunter McRae from Memories n More Photography provided all these gorgeous photos from the day!

Jennifer looks so happy to be walking down the aisle to marry the love of her life!

Officially Mr. and Mrs. Lacovara!

Congratulations, Jennifer and Michael! We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
