there is something magical about watching two lovers and two families become one. that phenomenon has never been more beautiful than it was at mallory and marlon’s wedding. family was the focus of the day and was woven into every detail of the day from the intimate ceremony in telfair square- the only square in savannah named after a family- to the personalized place cards marked with phrases to spawn discussion and friendship. matt and i were both overwhelmed by the tenderness of this couple- the poem they read together as their vows sums up perfectly what i’m trying to say. i could tell story after story about this couple and their wonderful families, but i’ll do that as we go- let’s get started with some images!
after a quick trip to the salon mallory & marlon were up for a few portraits around downtown savannah. they are in love with the city -we are too now!- and they knew exactly a few locations they wanted images taken, awesome!
the staging area was a museum across from the square, the white interior and huge windows made for some of our favorite images of the day!
marlon’s grandparents were too sweet and full of love and advice for the couple as they waited to walk to the ceremony. this is our new favorite image ever:
mallory and marlon were practicing their vows until the last minute and they were perfect at the ceremony!
their reception was held in the beautiful upstairs room at garibaldi’s- walking distance from the ceremony. it was a beautiful day and everyone arrived at the reception ready for more fun:
mallory’s dad looks on as everyone tapped their glasses, encouraging the newlyweds to kiss:
there were some seriously tear-jerking toasts. when marlon talked about the personal gift mallory’s dad presented to him there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
the rest of the evening there was lots of dancing and laughing and enjoying one another. quite the perfect way to top off a wonderful day.
mallory & marlon, thank you for inviting us into your family for a day, we truly felt like we’d known you forever! you two are amazing people and together you’re perfect. i hope we see you again- you helped us fall in love with savannah, no doubt we’ll be visiting again! thank you again for everything and best wishes!
