Courtney & Ryan's Tybee Island Wedding

All photos Taken Photography

Courtney and Ryan had the perfect day for their wedding ceremony at the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel. Every aspect of this special day had the perfect touch of femininity with lace, pearls, and touches of light pink. Upon arriving at the chapel, guests were asked to “sign” the guestbook, which was a canvas with a tree trunk and branches painted on it. Each guest pressed their thumb into green ink and placed it on the canvas to create the look of leaves. Then, guests signed their name next to their thumbprint for the happy couple to look back on to remember their special day. Inside the chapel, the ceremony had touches of baby’s breath and a burlap and lace runner by Urban Poppy. Pink fabric streamers and hanging lights in the trees set the romantic mood for the lovely cocktail hour on the patio..  After dinner and toast, Courtney and Ryan cut their cake and kept the party going on the dance floor. Guests blew bubbles as the couple made their exit on their special day. Congratulations, Courtney and Ryan!

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!
