Real Weddings: Christine and Erik Part 1-Ceremony

Forsyth FountainYou know I love my military couples….and this couple is NO EXCEPTION!

When Christine came to me, one of the first questions out of her mouth was “What are your thoughts on hot pink and bright orange Morgan?” Now, this seems to be the year for bright colors, but up until Christine contacted me, I have never had such a bright color pallet for a wedding. And to be honest, I was a bit hesitant. But after talking with Christine and Erik, their vision was quite clear and I knew this was going to be a very bright, happy and colorful event to remember! (Exactly the atmosphere they wanted to convey) Not to mention, that this matched this couples personality to a tee! I feel quickly in love with them, their ideas and the thought of putting this very special event together for them. They married at St. Joseph's Cathedral Savannah, GA at 2pm in a full mass ceremony and being military, exited the church under a traditional saber arch ceremony. The clover green bridesmaid dresses were adorable and compliment their orange and hot pink bouquets perfectly.  We added touches of the green color to compliment the girls dresses and hot pink and bright orange colors in Christine’s bouquet. Her bouquet, to this date, is one of my favorites. The texture, unique flowers, and colors are a PERFECT match to Christine’s personality and style. Kudos to  Geoff L. Johnson for capturing all the most intimate and amazing moments in this amazing couple’s wedding. His pictures are a truly unique perspective on a couples first day as husband and wife!

Christine and Erik are both in the military and right after their wedding, they headed to California to train up for their near future deployment. They will share their first year as husband and wife, overseas fighting our country’s war and for that, I want to personally thank them for their service and for allowing us to share in this momentous occasion with them and their loved ones.
