Leigh & Elliot - Mansion on Forsyth Park Savannah Wedding
Unlike the majority of my clients, everything I know about Leigh and Elliot I learned at their wedding. For instance they met on Spring Break in Mexico. That they complete each other in ways they didn’t know existed, and that Elliot can’t help but smile every time he glances over at Leigh.
The only time I had ever been to Savannah was on my one year dating anniversary with my now husband (wow did you catch all that) and my second shooter for this wedding had gone to Savannah for her honeymoon. Needless to say this is the real city of love.
When I booked this wedding knowing it was in June I prepared for that typical, Gone with the Wind, style southern heat and humidity, but we were totally blessed with an 80 degree high and a 50% humidity day. (Thank you Climate Change)
Leigh and Elliot shared an emotional first look under the trees in Forsyth Park before meeting their wedding party for a few photos outside of SCAD and the Mansion.
From there they had a short but adorably sweet ceremony and shared a private prayer with their friend and officiant after the service.
From there they went straight to partying! Girl scout cookies were passed around like contraband and margaritas were the drink of choice before going through saber arch.
Leigh’s father, The Maid of Honor, and The Best Man gave touching speeches that left both Leigh and Elliot in tears before they shared a first dance.
Leigh’s friends at UNC Chapel Hill even coordinated a special dance for her (that look of shock is my favorite)
The night ended in a fire display (they accidentally bought the wrong kind of sparklers) as they ran off into the night to start their new life together.
I loved being able to capture this beautiful wedding and I hope there are many more Savannah weddings in my future.
