Playing "dress up" at Bleu Belle Bridal

This week the ladies of First City Events traded in our black planner attire for white: giving us an opportunity to see all the latest trends in bridal gowns through the eyes of the bride. Heather Burge, owner of Bleu Belle Bridal graciously opened her doors and allowed us to try on our favorite styles while updating us all on the latest trends and tips in bridal fashion. 
 Our time was educational but it was also FUN! We had a blast seeing what different styles looked like on each other and playing in the Bleu Belle Bridal photo booth. (check out some of our selfies at the bottom).

A snippet of what Heather shared with us:
  • 9 months prior to your wedding is optimal for ordering your wedding dress
  • "There is a dress for every bride and a bride for every dress"
  • Today's bride is less interested in who the specific designer is and more interested in individual style

K+R's Davenport House & Vic's On The River Wedding

Sharing a few sweet moments with dad before walking down the aisle



Kendal and Ryan had a beautiful Spring day for their wedding ceremony in the garden of the Davenport House. After a morning of getting ready in a downtown townhouse, Kendal and her bridesmaids enjoyed taking pictures while waiting for their trolley to pick them up. Careful planning was necessary to make sure Kendal and Ryan did not see each other taking photos before the ceremony. Upon arriving at the Davenport House, Kendal shared a few sweet moments with her father before being walked down the aisle. The gorgeous pink and white flowers hanging in vases along the aisle were the perfect feminine touch to this historical garden. After the ceremony, guests were off to Vic’s on the River to enjoy a cocktail hour with stunning views of the Savannah River. Friends and family spent the rest of the night dancing and celebrating the happy couple. Kendal and Ryan left their special day under rows of dazzling sparklers!

Thank you to the many vendors that helped make this another successful First City Event:

Brittany and Steven's Mansion on Forsyth Park Wedding

Brittany and Steven was one of the sweetest and most laid back couple I have met. Savannah was a buzz with weddings and the Side Walk Arts Festival in Forsyth Park The excitement carried over to the Mansion on Forsyth Park where the couple exchanged vows under the luxuriously lined tent with glowing chandelier. Kiwi Fleur added a delicate touch with the florals. After the ceremony, the excitement continued with a great reception at 700 Drayton. Guests enjoyed delicious food, a fun photo booth, and tons of dancing before sending the couple off under a cloud of sparklers to ride away in the awaiting carriage. Thankfully, Bonnie
