There’s just something about Savannah… what a romantic place for a wedding! No wonder Megan and David chose it for their destination wedding.

Says the bride: “There is something truly special about destination weddings with your closest friends and family. When considering the type of wedding we wanted to have we were reminded that some of the best weddings we had been to were destination and we could not think of a better way to  celebrate than to get out of town with those we love the most. We chose Savannah for its Southern charm and proximity – it was truly the most beautiful backdrop for our special day.”

What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  I wanted something intimate and uncomplicated that incorporated our family traditions and heritage.

Did you include any traditions in your wedding? I incorporated my family’s country traditions of quilting and canning into the ceremony and reception decorations. I used Mason jars (which I borrowed from my grandmother) and antique bottles for flowers and candles, and quilting squares for napkins. My mother and I also spent the summer before my wedding canning peach salsa for the favors.

What was the best advice you received as a bride? A dear friend reminded me to be present during the ceremony and to think about the vows I was making as I was saying them. This was great advice because it is so easy to zone out and let the important moments pass you by on your wedding day.

What advice do you have for other brides?  Don’t sweat the small stuff. Or the big stuff. In the end it will all work out!

Do you have any budget tips for other brides?  Consider what is most important to you as a couple and budget accordingly. For some brides, it’s the dress and the flowers and others the menu. For us, it was photography and now we have beautiful photos we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

Is there anything else that helps tell the story of the day?  We actually had a situation arise that made us pack up and change venues in the middle of our reception! A week before our wedding, there was a dispute between the venue operators and a neighbor over the noise ordinance. The next door neighbor actually called the cops during our first dance, and we were forced to shut the music down for the remainder of our reception. While this seems like a total nightmare, it actually worked out amazingly and for the better. Within 45 minutes, my wedding planner had arranged another venue, our bar and DJ packed up, and a trolley transported guests to a nearby mansion where we were free to dance the night away. Luckily we had an amazing team (and a whole lotta luck) and it all worked out in the end.

    Thank you Snippet and Ink for featuring Megan and David’s incredible day and Nina for the inspiring pictures. Megan and David (and family/friends) are pretty amazing people. They did not once let the terrible incident causing them to move their entire wedding at the last minute dampen their big day or cause them to lose sight of the bigger picture and meaning of their marriage. We couldn’t mean it more when we say that we were honored in such a profound way, to be a part of their wedding day. XO
