SIMPLY PUBLISHED: {Savannah Weddings Magazine} 2 Weddings, 2 Styled Shoots + an Ad!

Eek! I am so excited today to finally share on here the recent wedding features Simply Savannah Events had in the Savannah Weddings Magazine Fall 2013 Issue that came out a few weeks ago!! I still sometimes have to pinch myself to make sure this is real life. I can honestly say I never imagined this would be my life at age 24. It is seriously a dream come true seeing my name in a magazine. I feel so blessed and lucky for the opportunities in life that have been given to me and am so grateful for everyone who has helped me get to this point and for all the vendors who have been mentors to me and mostly to Layla who took me on as a little assistant and taught me more than I could have ever imagined. ALSO... so excited because October 23rd, 2013 is Simply Savannah Event's one-year birthday of when I officially took over everything! I cannot even believe it has only been a year. It feels like so much has changed and so much has happened that there is just no way all this stuff has happened in just a year. It's not real life I've decided but that's okay because I like it just the way it is.

So anyway, in this Savannah Weddings issue we had two styled shoots + 2 weddings featured plus my first print ad! 

The first small feature was a picture of the faux wedding couple but real couple in real life kissing in front of the ceremony backdrop from the Valentine's Day styled shoot at the Jepson Center we did with French Knot Studios, photographed by Izzy Hudgins that was also published on Ruffled. This shoot was so fun and filled with tons of bright bold colors + funky styles. Definitely one of my favorites!! 

The second small feature was from a styled shoot at Brockington Hall designed by me! This shoot was one of my favorites because I got to do something really dramatic and bold. Thrive made that all black wedding cake and I styled the flowers, and those gorgeous calligraphy invitations are by Laura Lavender. For more from this shoot go here!

The first wedding feature was Arlette + Juan's, 'True Colors." Their wedding took place at Old Fort Jackson and was photographed by Izzy Hudgins. This couple was one of the first couples I worked with after purchasing the business... I can still remember meeting with Layla and them at Sam Sneads for the first time and being so nervous and excited! They are truly some of the sweetest people I have ever met. I think what I loved most about working with them was how it was not all business. Our meetings always took place over dinner, either Sam Snead's or Mellow Mushroom, and they loved talking about topics other than wedding plans... especially if it had to do with their beloved dog, Papo, who is just about the cutest ever. Their wedding was so special because you could just tell how focused on love, family, and friends they are. I also loved how the little flower girls got along and played together so perfectly even though they spoke different languages. *Full wedding feature coming this week with more details so check back soon!!! 

The second wedding feature was Courtney & Harry's, "Hollywood Ending." This wedding took place prior to me taking over Simply Savannah Events. Layla worked with the Hollywood couple to plan all the little details--> [check out Layla's new wedding blog here!] I loved all the amazing details in slate blue and shades of gray. Urban Poppy did the spectacular flowers and Rachel Browne photographed every last detail. This wedding began the start of my love affair with the Roundhouse Railroad Museum, which is by far one of the coolest most unique wedding venues in Savannah. I mean how many people can say they got married in a historic blacksmith shop at a railroad museum?!

And last but not least... I am so so so excited at how my advertisement came out! Thanks to the amazing Izzy Hudgins for the photo from Katy and Drew's wedding! Anyway, hope you enjoy the pictures! And if you are interested in getting a copy of Savannah Weddings let me know... I think I have about 5 or so copies left! Happy Tuesday!

  1. Wedding websites such as this one are useful because they have details of a wide range of wedding venues at your fingertips. If you’d like some assistance searching for a venue, a wedding venue finding service can help; tell them your requirements and they will search for a venue to suit you from their extensive list of wedding venues
