Real Savannah Wedding: Sara and Josh

Pin It

Sara & Josh’s wedding is just chock full of details.  They were married on a perfect May day at the Harper Fowlkes House.  To add to the specialness of the ceremony, the bride’s father lead the ceremony as their officiant.  During the ceremony, guests sat on rustic wood benches and cooled themselves with fans that doubled as programs.  To further share their love in the future, the couple included a unity ceremony where they wrote each other love letters and sealed it up in a wooden box that contained a bottle of wine.  When the ceremony ended guests entered the historic home for cocktail hour.  Once cocktails were complete, the guests entered into the back garden where the dining table awaited under a draped and lit frame tent.  To add to the rustic charm, guests found their seats by doilies with calligraphied names on them placed under clear charges.  Menus were written out on mini chalkboards and placed about the table.  A variety of little bottles filled with garden blooms lined the center of the long family style table.  After the cake was cut, guests were treated to Savannah Bee Company honey as their take home favors.  Their wedding day was an absolute success and you must check out the photos of the trash the dress session!  It was absolutely incredible and took place right in the heart of downtown Savannah in one of the fountains!!
