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

Jennifer and Kris were married on a beautiful May day at the Isle of Hope United Methodist Church surrounded by family and friends. Jennifer did an exceptional job with all of her plans, and I was excited to take the reigns the day of and ensure she and Kris had the wedding of their dreams. This was helped along by a great group of friends in their wedding party - "We're professionals" one of the groomsmen assured me! 

The couple exchanged traditional vows and did not take their eyes off each other the whole time. Following the ceremony, the wedding party took a trolley to the bluff around the church for photos before joining guests at the Telfair Academy for a night of dancing and general merriment. Friends of the groom, the ladies at A to Zinnias outdid themselves and found the most beautifully saturated blue hydrangeas to enhance the decor. 

Creative Catering provided the yummy southern fare, including pigs in a blanket and fried chicken! Almost as soon as the cake was cut, it was all gone, thanks to the delicious designs from Carrie Briscoe at Two Cakes. Filled up with delicious food and cake, everyone hit the dance floor for the rest of the night, only taking breaks to refill a beverage or to catch their breath between songs. As the guests lined the sidewalk outside ready to send them off under a canopy of sparklers, Jennifer and Kris shared a final dance by themselves in the rotunda before hopping on a carriage to take them off into the next chapter of their lives!

Tremendous thanks to Christine Hall for these lovely images.


Congratulations Jennifer and Kris! We wish you a long and happy life together.

Tricia Huddas & Co. Real Savannah Wedding: Heather and Cory

Heather and Cory had a beautiful June 4 ceremony and reception at the Davenport House Museum Garden. This St. Louis couple fell in love with the city of Savannah on a previous trip and given that the groom's last name is also Davenport, why not get married in the house with his out namesake! Like many out of town couples, we got plans started via email and phone and put the finishing touches on everything during a weekend trip into the city. This is my favorite part of planning because I get to spend some quality face time with the couple and really see their personalities, which helps me to ensure the couple's personalities shine throughout the wedding day!

The couple had a small ceremony with close family and friends, with a delicious dinner reception to follow catered by Paul Kennedy Catering. Heather looked absolutely stunning in her white lace gown and Cory's light gray suit was a perfect touch for the garden wedding. The flowers were a mix of ivory, lavender, accented with  greenery giving the feel of a quentissentially Savannah garden wedding. Heidi and Natalie at A to Zinnias took the couple's idea and ran with it to enhance the already beautiful gardens. Kerry O'Connor Cake Design created the delicious wedding cake featuring a lace design to match Heather's dress and light blue accents. Guests were entertained on the dance floor all night long with the musical styling of the Silver Lining Trio. The couple even had a special personal touch to their reception with monogrammed cookies baked especially for the couple by a friend from St. Louis...yummy!

Heather and Ryan from Heather Roth Photography shot the following beautiful photos. They traveled all the way from St. Louis to shoot the wedding and we had such a great time!

So happy to finally be married...these two are the epitome of sweet love!

Congratulations, Heather and Cory! We wish you a happy and healthy life together!
