Blair & Jeff
From the photographer: “Jeff and Blair, reality TV stars of BRAVO’s Newlyweds: The First Year, married in Savannah, Georgia at the doors of the historic and prestigious Harper Fowlkes House. They arrived in a majestic horse drawn carriage with the ceremony performed by Reverend Steve Schulte with their closest friends and family. They were transported post-ceremony to their “Southern Soiree.” Guests were directed to their tables that were named after great Southern movies and treated to an elegant evening in a luxurious garden-like setting complete with chandeliers. The details including the cake were all black and white and natural greens. All enjoyed Southern style food and childhood favorites like Girl Scout Cookies and milk. Guests popped streamers and sent the happy couple on their way at the end of the night. It was a perfect send off on their adventure!” – Donna Von Bruening of Donna Von Bruening Photographers

Laura & Jason
From the photographer: “Laura and Jason wanted to marry somewhere central for their guests, though they would travel the furthest from Los Angeles, between Florida and North Carolina. They wanted a southern wedding and chose the Harper Fowlkes House, which is an outdoor courtyard in the Historic District of Savannah. Caroline Carter implemented a design and had them married under a fabric-swatched oak tree in the square, had their guests’ cocktail hour inside the Harper Fowlkes House then proceeded to the courtyard for a seated banquet dinner.” –Donna Van Breuning of Donna Van Breuning Photographers
Inspiration for your wedding decor can come from anywhere – and a favorite movie, especially a classic film like the1952 Gene Kelly/Debbie Reynolds favorite Singin’ in the Rain, is a great place to start. We love how the creative Savannah-based vendor team, lead by Morgan Gallo Events and Azelle Photography, took this idea to heart by creating a style shoot full of Old Hollywood glamour and a touch of whimsy. Of particular note are the bright color palette, old school-meets-modern lounge area, raindrop-inspired details at every turn (love that cake!), and the vintage umbrellas hanging above the dance floor. Who said that rain on your wedding day is a bad thing? Check out the stunning, inspiring photos below – plus a bonus video from this gorgeous shoot.
