Savannah and Darian are more than just clients to me, they’ve been close friends for a few years and I was so excited to capture and be a part of what would’ve been their big day.
I know every bride imagines and dreams about their wedding day and what it will be like. I know this couple had hoped to be surrounded by 150 of their closest friends and family on 4/25/2020 as they shared thier vows. I cannot wait until we can all gather together, in the near future, to celebrate this beautiful couple and their love on their second “save the date”.
Anyone who knows Savannah can tell you how determined she can be, and from talking with her mother we realized Savannah was determined to keep the original wedding date even if it meant just her and Darian unofficially saying “I Do” under the canopy of the magnolia tree in the backyard. As the equally over-the-top friend that I am, I asked the mother of the bride if we could team up to make their backyard nuptials as magical as possible. Savannah loves twinkle lights, ferns, and macrame so, with the help of the amazing mother of the bride, we adorned that magnolia tree with all of the obove to help create a magic moment. But the mother of the bride didn’t stop there, she cordinated a drive by wedding parade to arrive while they were in the front yard planting their wedding tree. As they filled in the dirt in around the tree they heard horns honking, then one by one their loved ones drove by to congratulate them tossing flowers and wedding gifts out their car windows onto the front lawn. The couple was so surprised and overwhelmed with love they picked up their gifts and flowers and headed to the backyard to say “I do!”
