Allison and Blake are one of the kindest and sweetest couples their wedding planner and floral designer Ivory and Beau has ever had. They were so in love, so relaxed, and so happy to get married! They wanted to keep it southern, but still, have non-traditional touches in their flowers and decor. Her bouquet had large garden roses and ranunculus but with a fun touch using a King Protea in the center, which made it stand out against her beaded art deco gown. They added some succulents and berries for added texture and loved using the Protea in the bridesmaid’s bouquets as well.
Photographed by Jenna Davis Photo, Allison and Blake’s wedding took place in Warren Square, with a huge ceremony arch that draped down with endless greenery. They had a laid back ceremony surrounded by their closest family and friends, who all came into town for their destination wedding.
From Ivory and Beau:
Their reception took place at one of our favorite restaurants, Cha Bella. They are a farm to table restaurant, which specializes in local food that tastes great. They had stations that included a mac and cheese station, and shrimp and grits seared on the spot with whatever ingredients the guests wanted! It was some of the best food we have ever had! Cha Bella has a gorgeous patio, where guests mingled and danced all night in the gorgeous Savannah weather. The tables had a combination of greenery garlands, small centerpieces, and brass candlesticks. Our favorite part? Each guest had coloring page table placemats, with crayons and colored pencils at each table. Guests of all ages loved this, and it was so fun seeing what each person drew at the end of the night.
Another one of our favorite ideas they had were anniversary cards. Placed throughout the tables were cards for milestone anniversaries, like their 1st and 25th. Guests were able to write in the cards their best wishes, for them to open down the road and read. This is such a special way to keep guests involved throughout their lives and let the couple remember what a beautiful wedding they had.
Thanks for stopping by!
