Savannah has a type of old-world, Southern charm that is hard to equal. With historic old buildings, beautiful parks, and a cobble-stone waterfront, it’s not hard to understand why Alli and Jim chose this beautiful backdrop for their destination wedding.

Alli stayed at the very posh Bohemian Hotel Savannah Riverfront. Combining vintage elegance with a modern flair, Alli wore a full-length gown with ruffles, a head-band veil, and fabulous zebra-print heels. Hair and makeup were provided by The Red Headed Bride. The finishing touch was an amazing bouquet by A To Zinnia’s.

At the same time, Jim was putting on his white tuxedo at the AVIA Savannah Hotel before meeting for guy photos. These included a very touching photo of Jim, his father, Jim, Jr., and his grandfather, Jim, Sr.

With the help of amazing Savannah wedding coordinator Jeannie Sims of BRiDE – Brilliantly Designed Events, Alli and Jim chose to have their wedding at Reynolds Square. Reynolds Square is centered around a statue of John Wesley with beautiful Spanish moss hanging from the trees. Accompanied by classical music, Jim watched as his beautiful bride was escorted into the square by her father. The ceremony was officiated by Judge Andrews, who added to the feel of this Southern wedding with a classic top hat. After a very sweet ceremony, a trolley from Old Savannah Tours transported everyone to shoot wedding photos at Forsyth Park.

Next it was on to the wedding reception at Vic’s on the River. The reception was decorated with colorful floral arrangements and a lot of details with birds (such as the table numbers and votive holder favors). The guests signed a “family tree” by using their thumbprints as the leaves (possibly the cutest guestbook we have ever seen!). The adorable wedding cake, created by Delectable Designs, had a pair of birds to symbolize their union, with a pair of little bird tracks, symbolizing the journey that brought them to that day. However, the “sweetest” moment of the evening happened when Jim gave a toast to thank all their guests and family. As he looked down at his new bride, Jim began to choke up. With Alli gazing back at him, Jim had eyes only for his bride, revealing the absolute love he has for her and she has for him.

Alli and Jim continued to celebrate with their guests, with music provided by the Jeff Beasley Band. The night ended with a festive exit from Vic’s and an after party at Churchill’s Pub!

Although we had a short time with Alli and Jim, they left an impression on us with their sweetness and obvious affection for each other. We want to thank them for letting us be a part of their beautiful wedding and wish them many blessings as they begin their marriage!
