Engagements + Weddings//Savannah, GA

This past weekend Jared and I dropped off the kiddos at Gran & Pop's house in Hilton Head and drove to Savannah for a good friend's wedding.  Jared was a groomsman in Richie's wedding, and we both had such a good time just enjoying the wedding from a different angle... Usually Jared is officiating the wedding and I'm photographing it, but this weekend was just us being husband and wife at the wedding and it was a great change! We had such a good time catching up with old friends and eating good ol' southern cooking (the rehearsal dinner was catered by Lady & Sons, i.e. PAULA DEEN's restaurant!)  In addition to the wedding festivities, I got to catch up with my dear friend Mary who lives in Savannah and take engagement pictures of her and,her soon to be husband, Steve!  Lisa, Mary, and I went out to eat and got some great time catching up, and then we drove to the wedding chapel and took some pictures before the actual wedding started.  Lisa is one of the most special people to me... she was the maid of honor in my wedding and has walked alongside of me in all the ups and downs of life, so it was so great to be able to catch up with her and Justin.  Lisa helped scout out some fun spots for pictures of Steve and Mary (great work Lucie!) and has committed to becoming my assistant for future shoots.  Mary asked Lisa and I to be bridesmaids in her wedding, and we were so excited and honored... now we just have to pick out some dresses that fit the color scheme (and fit my post pregnancy self!).  Here are a few shots from the engagement shoot, from the wedding, and of my really cute husband.  It was his first time wearing a bow tie, and he rocked it.  I think he might be the most handsome man alive (or dead? gross).  I'm really honored to be his wife and need to write a whole other blog post about how great he is.  for real.  But for now some pictures will have to do.  I love you buddy!  And Mary & Lisa! husband (above).  me and husband (below).  and some pics from Richie's wedding...

And now for some engagement pics of Mary + Steve (below)... love this one of Mary- she is one of the funniest people I know and has such a great sense of humor... her laugh is contagious, too!

and cute Lisa... work it, work itMe, Mary, + Lisa! I should post a picture of us from 10 years ago in college to see the differences... Both of these friends recently turned 30 and here I am as the young one (29).  Who knew 30 would feel so young? so happy for you and Steve!!
