I just adored Morgan and John’s sweet and down to earth wedding. It took place on an unseasonably warm spring day here in Savannah. The atmosphere was laid back, casual, and easy going…. not exactly the most typical for a Catholic wedding. Morgan is sweet and soft spoken, and John even quieter yet. When John smiled at Morgan his cheeks would turn red and she could make him laugh at the drop of a hat. In Catholic ceremonies, the couple often spends quite a bit of time seated to the side, as opposed to standing at the alter. The couple was so darling… whispering, giggling, and just so excited to be getting married.
After the ceremony we took a few shots by the balcony stained-glass windows (some of my favorite portraits of the year) before heading to Tiedeman Park in Ardsley to utilize it’s amazing rows of palms. Please take note of Morgan’s stunning veil, which she took months to crochet herself. It was truly a work of art, and is something for her to cherish for the rest of her life. Their granddaughters will surely love when it is pulled out and shown off many years from now.
The afternoon reception at the Villa Marie Center was short, sweet, and simple. It felt like an elevated family picnic. Delicious food, lovely flowers by Joann’s Florist, and one of the best smelling cakes of my wedding season.
I’d like to wish Morgan and John the absolute best. I have no doubts they have each found their soulmate, and I’m thankful to them for inviting me to document their love on this special day.
