A Future Savannah Wedding: Meet Paul and Lindsey

DSC00241

Paul Swift and Lindsey Harless

Date Engaged:

March 22, 2011

Where did you meet?

We met through two of our good friends Christie Walden (Maid of Honor) and Joe Sanders at college (Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA)

How did he propose?

I picked up the ring on Monday  and could not wait to give it to Lindsey. I lied to Lindsey so I could go get it. After getting the ring I couldn't wait to give it to her. The next day I came up with a scheme for a picnic. I went and scooped out Flat Rock Park for the perfect place during my lunch break. After being a train wreck all day at work I ran through Public's getting supplies for the picnic. While shopping Lindsey called saying she was already leaving work, an hour early. At this point I decided that I would just try and hid the picnic supplies in my truck and go pick her up. After getting to the park we walked down the the "spot" and I asked Lindsey to pick me out a fishing lure, where I had the ring hiding amongst my flies. Of course Lindsey found her "lure" automatically.

When is your wedding date?

Nov 5, 2011 (Bride's father's Birthday)

Why did you pick the area you are getting married in?

We LOVE Savannah and Tybee Island. When we saw the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel we knew that was the perfect place to get married.

Where do you reside now?

Columbus, GA

Anything interesting or out of the ordinary you are including in your wedding day?

Nothing out of the ordinary. Plan on having a remembrance candle for our Grandparents that have passed on.

What do you think?

Ford Plantation Wedding: Savannah and Joe Part 1-Ceremony

Savannah and Joe were married on the historic Ford Plantation in November of last year. The weather was perfect, the location was breath-taking and the couple…so in love! Savannah and Joe wanted their wedding to reflect their unique style and tastes. These two are such free spirited and family oriented people and we made sure we never lost sight of that while planning. Savannah was married in her traditional gown (pictured in the first photo on the left) and would later change for the reception in her more flirty dress with a purple sash. LOVE LOVE LOVE. The ceremony took place at the front of the Ford Plantation home under majestic oaks and endless green……a perfect backdrop to exchange their wedding vows.
Thanks to Chia and Hon Photography for the images. Stay tuned tomorrow for Part 2-The Portraits

In honor of our past Military Spouses!

Wedding Tim and Mo 267

As a military spouse myself, I know first hand the difficult sacrifice that our spouses give their soldiers and country. Just like myself, many of our clients plan weddings while their soldiers are across the seas and I cannot express how difficult that is emotionally and logistically. With that said, there is no amount of gratitude or words that would justify the thank you we have for your service…it is immeasurable and often forgotten. XOXOXOXO
