Teona & Jovan had a sort of last minute venue change to Bakers Ranch.  I had never shot there before, so it was going to be a nice change of pace heading down south to Palmetto.

Tucked off the road a bit with their gorgeous barn style venue, it was perfect for the two of them.

The day started off a little chaotic to say the least but it ended perfectly!!

Sticking with the travel theme, they had everyone sign a map instead of a guestbook.

Their first dance was EPIC!!  They started off with a little lip sync to each other and then Jovan learned the Georgian dance to show respect for Teona’s culture.  I knew he was an amazing guy but this was classic!!

I shot Lindsay & Rob’s wedding last December so it was only fitting that they were included in our selfie!

Savannah Destination Wedding | Ashley & Michael

November 30th, 2015

I’m not going to lie, when another photographer asks you to shoot their wedding, two feelings rush through your body. 1.  Hell yeah!  Another photographer asked me to shoot their wedding. 2.

I’m not going to lie, when another photographer asks you to shoot their wedding, two feelings rush through your body.

1.  Hell yeah!  Another photographer asked me to shoot their wedding.
2. OMG another photographer asked me to shoot their wedding.

But Michael is so laid back, that I knew it was going to be a blast.  First they were supposed to get married in Bradenton and then I got a text from Michael wanting to know if I wanted to head to Savannah instead.

Ummm yes please!

So last weekend we packed up and headed north.  The weather was perfect, a little cool and overcast because the ceremony was in Washington Square.  It was nice because Ashley got ready in one cottage on one side of the square and Michael on the other.  Made it nice walking back and forth.  I think I met my steps that night lol

Huge thanks to Michael, Ashley and both their family and friends that welcomed me there!  It was a blast to work with everyone.

With the reception at a brewery, these were perfect gifts for everyone at the rehearsal dinner.

Since Michael is a pilot, there’s a twist of an airplane theme that goes on.
