Remember Amethyst and Matt, who had their engagement session in Disney World this past April? They celebrated their happily ever after on a warm and sunny December day in Savannah, Georgia!
My day started with a Forrest Gump impersonator chatting with me at breakfast and telling me to congratulate the couple for him, which I think is pretty cool. The day ended with a sparkler exit along the street with trolley passengers cheering and passing cars honking. Before the ceremony, I took pictures with Amethyst, her family, and her bridesmaids with ivy and palmetto trees. My second shooter, Shain, took Matt, his family, and the groomsmen to the nearby square with lots of giant oak trees and Spanish moss. The ceremony took place in the courtyard of the Kimpton Brice Hotel, which faces the Savannah River.
Although this was not a Disney-themed wedding, there had to be Disney references throughout the day, since that’s where Amethyst and Matt met and began their adventures as a couple. Not only were there some Disney songs carefully placed throughout the day (I especially loved the songs from The Goofy Movie as the wedding party entered the reception), each entrance into the reception space had a Disney quote about love on it. Like any Disney princess, Amethyst wore a tiara. Since Beauty and the Beast is one of Amethyst’s favorite Disney movies, Matt had notes and roses given to her throughout the day. As we took their photos in the square after the ceremony, Matt gave her one more note and a rose. I only know that part of that note said “I’ll love you until the last petal falls” because Matt pointed out that this rose was artificial, so no petals would fall.
When you’ve spent years working at “the happiest place on earth,” where do you go for your first adventure as a married couple? Well, “the happiest place on earth” actually refers to several places in different parts of the world, so I’ll just leave it at that.
Here are a few of my favorites from this beautiful wedding day!
