High School Sweethearts
Brittany and Brennen first met when they were just 16 years old. There’s nothing like being high school sweethearts! Holding hands, kissing in the hallway during class transitions, passing notes back and forth. Wait, do they pass notes back and forth anymore? Regardless… They had a small part time job together working at a yogurt shop. At 16 you have no idea what you want to do with your life, what you want to be when you grow up, or even where you see yourself in the next 10 years. However, Brittany knew she was going to marry Brennen one day.
Olde Pink Proposal
Brennen took Brittany to Savannah Georgia for the proposal. He decided to take her to The Olde Pink House because it is a popular place for sweethearts to get engaged. Luckily Brittany didn’t know this! “Located in the heart of historic Savannah, Georgia, The Olde Pink House, Savannah’s only 18th century mansion, is famous for memorable dining experiences featuring seafood caught daily in local waters, prime aged beef and traditional southern fare.” – TripAdvisor. Sounds like the perfect place to pop the question.
The Wedding Day
Flash forward and it’s August 12, 2017. All the girls and all the guys are getting dressed. Laughter can be heard from each room and unforgettable memories are made. Zippers are pulled, bow ties straightened, hugs shared between friends and family, and deep breaths are inhaled and exhaled. Their hands are slightly shaky. His stuffed in pockets, hers wrapped around the most gorgeous bouquet as she walks down the isle. He will finally see his bride.
There’s something truly magical that happens as the bride makes her way down the aisle. A man sees his future, the love of his life, saying yes to a life with him. No matter how they show their emotion – whether it’s through tears, clenched jaw or a simple smirk, the joining of the two sweethearts is always a moving thing to experience.
They say their “I Do’s” at the gazebo under beautifully draped fabric and a chandelier. Her bridesmaids wear flattering red wine colored dresses and the groomsmen in dapper navy tuxes. All the greenery in the flowers pop next to their dark dresses for an eye catching contrast.
Hooray! They did it!
Cheers erupt from the crowd as their vows are sealed with a kiss and everyone claps for the sweethearts as they head up to the reception. Inside the ballroom, drapes are hung from the exposed rafters directly above the dance floor. Her navy linens, adorned with gold chargers and beautiful centerpieces make for quite the spectacle. She alternated 3 different centerpieces throughout the venue. Some were large flower arrangements, some had flowers and lanterns, others had tall vases in the center with much larger flowers. Adding height pulls your guests eyes up to see the exposed wooden beams that run all across the ceiling and make the room feel even taller.
Instead of having a large wedding cake Brittany had a cupcake tower topped with cake pops. Other desserts were scattered around such as brownies and tarts.
Brittany had an absolutely gorgeous day to tie the knot with her new hubby Brennen. We couldn’t be happier for them!
