Is ultra-glamping a thing? Because we’ve taken glamping to a whole new level with this shoot. Frolicking in the woods with these high-fashion hotties was nothing short of magical. From the bountiful bouquet to the soft, simple gold decor, we’re still swooning about every detail of this romantic tropical adventure.

The true star of the show has got to be the Sonje gown by Daughters of Simone. We love how easily you can dress this gown up or down. Our model looked like she’d come straight off the catwalk with her ultra-mod updo and statement earrings.

While we we’re madly in love with the bold drop earrings from Two Friends Jewelry, you can tame the look with the Miramar Sequin Drop earrings by Olive + Piper! Our model also rocked a set of boho-chic set of stacking rings that were absolutely to die for. Get the look with these Olive + Piper Dawn-to-Dusk Semi-Precious stacking rings!

Looking for a touch of soft romance? Create your own glamping magic with these pearl pendant earrings (pictured above) by Jane Stone and these fabulous velvet heels by Modcloth

If you find yourself inspired by our decor, go for the gold with these lamps! This unity lantern can be personalized, but if you'd rather keep things simple, this gold lantern or this geometric copper tealight holder would make for the perfect centerpieces for your own glamping date!

Deanna & Larry

Deanna & Larry

Deanna and Larry were one of the coolest couples we have worked with. They are both fun, outgoing, and wanted their wedding to reflect their years together and their hobbies. Their ceremony took place in front of Forsyth Fountain, and the groom has a pretty bad-ass entrance (scroll down to see!). They love riding on his bike, so Larry surprised Deanna with custom leather vests after the ceremony, which she rocked all night!

One think we have to really mention.. the vegan desserts from Rum Runners! They are hands down the best cakes we have ever tasted.. and they were vegan! They were so moist, so flavorful, and I mean, just look at how fun his groom cake is! So if you are vegan and worried about dessert... don't be! Rum Runners Bakery has you covered! 

Deanna and Larry got married in front of Forsyth Fountain, on a sunny day this past May. And we have to admit, Larry's entrance was the coolest we have seen! He is an avid motorcycle rider, and instead of walking down the aisle... he rode! It made for the perfect start to their wedding. 

Instead of the usual pictures around Savannah, Meghan Melia followed the couple across the Talmadge bridge and got some of the coolest pictures of them riding. (No really, they are epic!) After pictures across the river, they headed back to the Charles H Morris Center for their reception. For cocktail hour, they had shaved ice from Larry's cousin at Savannah Famous Shaved Ice. Guests gathered around on the patio and it was a hit!

{Hide and Beau Seek} Savannah Stonehenge

Savannah might be known for it's oak lined streets, dripping Spanish Moss, and cobble stone alleys, but there is so much more to see! Savannah is rich in art, including graffiti. While you might see some graffiti downtown, the best display is at Savannah's own Stonehenge. Tucked away across the river in South Carolina, this barren empty field has the old remnants of a building, with concrete pillars jutting out of the ground.  Over the years, the art has grown, from random sculptures being left behind, to layers of graffiti and brick. There is even an old mattress in case you want to spend the night (just kidding!)

For this spot, we knew the perfect photographer: Lauren Imus. Her work is a little moody, and she is a pro at capturing the little details, from getting ready, to reception details. When it came to picking a gown, we wanted one that had graphic details to match the architecture, but still be feminine. Honeycomb by Blush by Hayley Paige was our instant choice. The beaded honeycomb bodice has floral appliques, and the softest chiffon skirt that moved in the breeze. It's a mix of badass with classic bride. And our intern Katie was the perfect model! See more below!

Rainy Forsyth Mini Shoot: Tips for a rainy wedding day

Rainy Forsyth Mini Shoot: Tips for a rainy wedding day

We love being by the coast, nothing can beat sandy beaches and gorgeous sunsets. But being by the coast also means we tend to get a lot of rain, especially in the spring and summer. (And as we well know, hurricanes!) But today we wan't to focus on the positive: How to make a rainy day the best day for your wedding! Our friend Wendy at Apt B Photography had a rainy day for her mini shoot with Jessica & Matt, and she made the best of it! The couple walked around Forsyth park, with a clear umbrella and smiles on their faces (and a boutique by Ivory & Beau!)

1. Umbrellas: We love clear umbrellas, since they keep you dry and get awesome pictures! Wendy used a clear umbrella for Jessica & Matt's shoot, and it wasn't distracting at all. It allowed you to see each of them, and made for a cute prop. You can rent umbrella's for all of your guests (Try Amazing Event Rentals!) or just get a handful for those taking pictures outside. 

2. Rain Backup: The most important part of keeping a rainy day wedding successful: A good rain back up plan! No matter when your wedding is, we always reccomend a rain back up. Whether you get married in the reception venue, or rent a tent, having a solid plan is important. This way you can stress less the night before if you have to use the rain back up plan, and know that it is all taken care of. 

3. Rain boots & Jacket: Your wedding dress is a valuable piece of the day! Make sure to protect it with a rain jacket (a hood is a plus!). We also reccomend rain boots! Rain boots and a wedding dress can be an oh-so-cute combo, and your feet will thank us later! 

4. A Good Attitude: The most important part? A good attitude! Rain might not be ideal, but this is still a special day, filled with love and the people you care about most. Focus on the happy part, that you are getting married! Regardless of the weather, you will have an amazing day, that we can promise.
