If you asked Nicole or I where we would love to do a wedding... we would both say in a greenhouse. Being surrounded by endless rows of lush greenery and fragrant flowers sounds like the perfect place to get married. It evokes such romance, and you won't have to use a lot of decor, since you will be surrounded by a gorgeous view. While Savannah might not have a greenhouse venue (which we hope changes!) we do have some gorgeous garden venues. The Coastal Botanical gardens have multiple spots that would be perfect to get married, from white arbors to bamboo fields. If you are wanting something intimate and small, we love the Davenport House gardens. Set downtown, it still gives you the southern Savannah feel, while being quiet and tucked away. When we got the opportunity to lend a dress for a gorgeous shoot with Noi Tran photography and Whitewood Events, we were so excited! They wanted something airy, fashion forward, and sweetly southern. We chose Madison by Sarah Seven, which mixes a modern lace bodice, with layers of soft flowy tulle.
So let's talk about this buying the bourbon thing! I never heard of this until I moved down south, but it's such a fun tradition! "Southern folklore says that if you bury a bottle of bourbon at the site where the bride and groom are to be married it won’t rain on their wedding day. According to many believers, this must be done exactly one month before the wedding, the bottle must be completely full, and it must be buried upside down to ensure maximum weather persuasion."
