A year or so ago, Danielle and Megan were in Nashville, where I live and Danielle secured my services to photograph the proposal in Downtown Nashville (unbeknownst to Megan at the time). I was honored to document that memory for them, and even more honored that they thought of me to be their wedding photographer / storyteller of choice. Danielle announced their plans to have a beautiful Savannah LGBT wedding as pride month kicked off, at The Alida Hotel, Downtown Savannah, Ga. I love destination weddings, and this one in particular served two purposes. First and foremost, tell the story of Danielle and Megan’s day. Also, explore Savannah and take a couple days to stay on Tybee Island and enjoy the beach. It didn’t suck. Styling by Blush Hair And Makeup Artistry.
I come and go during prep, so it doesn’t become weird and posed. In my wanderings, I documented some of the features of the hotel, including rooftop views that show the stormy and moody weather that we had that afternoon. The ceremony was going to take place on the rooftop, which would have been awesome. Though with anything wedding, both the couples and photographers must go with the flow adapt quickly, as certain things like weather are out of our control. The hotel quickly provided a conference room overlooking the pool as a weather contingency plan.
The reception room neighbored the rooftop and had a great view of Downtown Savannah and the Savannah River. The bar and catering were in-house, and dinner was delicious! Cake by Wicked Cakes.
It was a great day with Megan and Danielle, and here’s to a great future! Thanks to the couple and The Alida for hosting us for the magical Savannah LGBT wedding at the kickoff of pride month!
