We always love it when we get to travel to new places to photograph a wedding, and we were thrilled when Stephanie and Robert decided to do a destination wedding in Savannah, Georgia. Their wedding ceremony took place on a beautiful Fall day right in the middle of the historic Lafayette Square. This was such an amazing backdrop (with a lot of history)! Lafayette Square sits on Charlton Street and Abercorn Street right behind the Cathedral of St. John Baptist, the oldest Roman Catholic church in Georgia. Then, their reception was held at Bryson Hall on Perry Street right near Chippewa Square. The best part of the day was when we got to go around the historic downtown for portraits (on a horse drawn carriage too)! We also loved the idea of using grandmas for flower girls (you may recognize this photo from when we posted it to our Facebook page).
About the Couple: Stephanie grew up in Columbus, Ohio and graduated from The Ohio State University in 2010. She works in Human Resources. Robert is from Carmel, New York and moved to South Florida when he was 8. He graduated from Florida Atlantic University and is working as a chemist in Jupiter, FL. They currently live in West Palm Beach, Florida with their five-year-old labrador, Rondo. They love where they live and spend a lot of time traveling thoroughout the year to visit their family and friends in Ohio & Wisconsin.
How They Met: “We met over 15 years ago in 5th grade in South Florida. We reconnected in 2012 when Stephanie was living in Kansas City and Robert was living in West Palm Beach. In 2013, Stephanie moved to South Florida and we have been together ever since.”
The Proposal: “Robert and I got engaged in Juneau, Wisconsin on our annual Fourth of July trip. The proposal happened when while we were sailing on a boat. Robert had been planning the proposal for months and I was completely caught off guard.”
Thank you to all the vendors who helped make their day special!
