Savannah, and specifically the Lutheran Church of the Ascension, makes for a beautiful backdrop for a wedding.
The church is located in the heart of downtown Savannah right along one of the dozens of squares that pop up around town. It's an old, gorgeous, well known church in the city and it was the perfect spot for Laura & Stephen to get married this past weekend.
I'm not going to lie - Patrick and I shared a little freak out moment together once we sat down together in the church. That was the moment we realized that HOLY COW our wedding was in exactly three weeks and the next time we're in a church on a Saturday afternoon it will be for our wedding. Yup. Minor freak out. But it passed.
... until the music started and the doors opened for Laura to walk down the aisle with her dad. She walked down the aisle to the same song that I have selected for our wedding and cue the emotional waterworks.
The square across the street made for the perfect location for an impromptu photo shoot with our families.
I've said it once and I'll say it again: if you're getting married and you want a live band at your wedding, you need to get in touch with The Extraordinaires. They are amazing. They play the best music and keep you dancing all night long. We were all a hot mess by the end of the night after several hours of dancing.
Between the dancing and spending time with our friends and the sunglasses and sparklers, we had an absolute ball.
Some of us had too much fun being a ring bearer and dancing around the reception in cute suspenders:
