The main purpose of our delightful trip to Georgia was to attend Will and Sarah’s wedding, and what a gorgeous affair it was! While the rest of the east coast was being pelted with hail and tornados, we were standing on a marsh in Savannah watching the sun set over the water as two best friends said I Do with nothing more than a stiff (ok, crazy unbelievably strong) breeze blowing our hair up and giving us all that kind of wild wonderful feeling that always comes on a strong wind. Wind can be so suggestive, and this one was particularly evocative, making me think that not only were these two coming together for a life-long commitment, but they were actually being forcefully blown together. That clever wind.
Sarah is such a stunning bride and she had a gigantic smile with tears in her eyes and look that was something like, “bring it”, which I loved.
And I equally love how relaxed and confident Will looks…
Afterward we all chased them around for hugs and kisses and pictures:
And after that we headed into the tent for dinner and dancing, but not before we got to watch the sun turn the world golden over the marsh:
The reception was so much fun, they hired a great blue grass band (my apologies for not remembering the band’s name) and the food was excellent. Will and Sarah were so relaxed and happy that it really just set the tone for the night, and before you knew it, shoes were getting kicked off and skirts were swirling, and we were dancing the night away. Like really dancing hard, sweaty hair and rolled up pant cuffs and all. So. Fun.
You know you’re at a fun wedding when the bride and groom are the first ones to kick off their shoes…I just love this picture:
The dance party:
And here we are with our dear friends and traveling companions, Jedd and Megan (pre-dance party, that is):
The wedding was such a beautiful event, and I think that more than the thoughtful details and decorations, more than the food or the dance floor, or even the amazing view over the marsh, the thing that made this wedding so memorable was how relaxed the bride and groom were and how much Will and Sarah seemed to be enjoying themselves. Everyone was smiling and laughing all night which is really a reflection of the two people that brought us all together, and I think that will always be the biggest detail that will stand out in my mind about this fabulous Savannah wedding.
Congratulations you crazy kids and thank you so much for such a wonderful time!!
