Greg and I looove the city of Savannah, with it’s cobblestone roads lined with Spanish moss, antebellum architecture and horse-drawn carriages. When Kristin and Alex reached out to us and told us about their plans for a wedding at the Ships Of The Sea Maritime Museum we were absolutely stoked! The more we talked to them the more we knew we’d be the perfect fit for each other. Kristin and Alex are some of the most laid back, trusting and kind people and Greg and I are so thankful to have been able to photograph their wedding day for them.
Kristin and Alex met in college in a drawing 101 class where they were randomly paired together to draw portraits of each other. After they had completed their portraits, Alex quickly says “I don’t think you look like this” before showing Kristin the sketch! They instantly became friends and grew to be extremely close, but kept their relationship platonic for years. Within this time they had graduated and moved to separate states. Four years later, they confessed their feelings to each other and finally began dating! Now that they’re in the same city (and married!) they are SO happy and, in their words, “cherishing every single minute of it.”
The day started in an old apartment in downtown Savannah where Kristin and her bridal party prepped for her day as I photographed their gorgeous invitation suite, engraved rings and dress. Kristin had told us she loved the minimalist look, so Greg and I found a concrete wall that was perfect for their first look at the SCAD museum. After seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day they celebrated with their bridal party before we walked through the streets of Savannah to the Ships Of The Sea Maritime Museum.
As soon as we got to the venue it started POURING rain. Their ceremony was meant to be outside in 30 minutes, so things were a bit in the air about what was going to happen. Luckily, they decided to wait it out and the storm cloud passed just in time! Kristin’s Dad, Steve, officiated the ceremony and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the audience. The night eventually came to a close after a couple hours of eating, drinking and awesome dance moves.
Kristin & Alex, thank you both so much for allowing us to be apart of the most amazing day xx
