From Start to Finish a Georgia Wedding

 Looking for that perfect destination for your fairy tale wedding, but wanting something different than everyone else? What about setting the date in the beautiful location of Savannah, Georgia? Here is Alli & Jeff and their dream wedding in Savannah, Georgia. Photography by Christine Hall.  

How did the two of you meet?  Tell us your story.  My best friend, Laura, and I were meeting with a friend at the mall. As luck would have it, our friend was good friends with Jeff, and we were meeting him at Radio Shack where he worked. Once we got there our friend was gone and we got to meet Jeff. His eyes were so blue and I instantly developed a crush. We waited for him to get off of work so we could hang out with him longer. Well, during his break we decided to ride the carousel. We chose to ride in the teacup because that was Laura and Is favorite ride. You can spin so fast and because Jeff was so tall we had to cram into the tiny teacup. As we’re riding Laura begins to say, “Your hurting me, you hurting me!” while pushing my legs until, BAM! I go flying out of the teacup, slamming my ankle on a tiger. They stopped the entire ride and I was humiliated, but apparently I made quite the impression! 
Describe the proposal. On December 3, 2007 we were taking our dogs out for a walk and he insisted we stand by the fountain because it just looks so beautiful at night. It was freezing out so we were standing there holding one another and I notice (through my earmuffs!) that his heart is racing. Next thing I know he is on his knee asking me to marry him! And of course the answer was YES!
Three adjectives that describe the day are:  Beautiful, Magical, Extraordinary
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: It was everything! The location, our families, favors, flowers, everything and every vendor made my day/details spectacular!
                                                                 Tell us about finding your wedding dress: It took me one trip to Priscilla of Boston to find my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses. The moment I put on my Melissa Sweet gown I knew.
Describe your wedding flowers: For my wedding flowers I wanted something simple. I was on a budget and flowers were the least of my worries because Savannah is so beautiful I didn’t need many. To keep from going over budget I chose the hydrangea. Since they’re such a full flower I didn’t need to buy more than one stem, saving me money to spend in other areas! 
Describe your wedding cake: We wanted our cake to taste delicious. And to save money we chose to go to Publix for our cake. Not only was it beautiful and delicious but it was affordable!
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Honestly, I did all the planning myself including making the wedding favors and I enjoyed it so much that now I am working to be a wedding planner!
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? I have two moments that made my day spectacular! My photographer had my dad sit outside waiting for me while I got dressed. She had him face away from me as I approached him. The moment he turned around we both cried and I will never forget the way he looked at me. I’m a Daddy’s girl, can you tell? And of course the moment my husband and I said our vows.
What’s next for you as a couple?  What are you looking forward to in the future?  We’re moving to Virginia! We are looking forward to buying a house and starting a family!
