When our good friend Mary (editor of Oviedo-Winter Springs Life magazine) introduced us to her niece Christen and her fiance Brad, it was love at first sight for us. Christen works for the Sarasota Humane Society and he is a mortgage broker and live in Sarasota. They were so wonderful and funny and made us feel like we had all been friends for years. (See their sweet and romantic engagement session here.)
We sat and talked about their wedding for a long time – we were so excited since we love destination weddings and we love Savannah! It was beautiful with amazing details in midnight blue and grays at a beautiful little chapel and a reception a the historic Olde Pink House.
In Christen’s words, “As soon as Brad and I met, I knew he was the one. After six years of dating, Brad and I went to Siesta Key one evening to watch the sunset and he surprised me by proposing! After dinner, Brad had another surprise up his sleeve and brought me to our local hangout where ALL our friends were waiting to celebrate with us!
I knew I wanted us to get married in Savannah. Every summer growing up, we would stop in Savannah on our way up to my stepdad’s family lake house and I simply fell in love with the city. The charm, the people, the food…the city is captivating!
Planning a destination wedding is quite a lot of work, so thank goodness we had a year to plan! And thank goodness for my Aunt Mary, who introduced me to Bianca at the Pink House. As soon as I took a tour of the Pink House and met Bianca, I knew we had found our reception site! Bianca was wonderful and helped me find all our wonderful vendors. If I could give any advice to future brides, get a coordinator! Cindy Brown was our day-of coordinator and she was amazing! Between her and Bianca, they kept me on task and the wedding was everything we could have hoped for! Every vendor was so friendly and accommodating and so easy to work with!
We were surrounded by our closest friends and family and it was simply the best day of our lives.”
