Real Wedding ~ Scottee and Jim

Scottee and Jim chose Savannah, GA for their intimate Southern soiree filled with beautiful vintage details and designed in rich color palette by event designer Elizabeth Demos. Photographer Donna Von Bruening of DVB Photographers was on hand to capture the day. Scottee looked gorgeous in her chic Carolina Herrera gown with fitted bodice and bubbled tier skirt tied with black and ivory striped ribbon. She wore her hair up with braids pulling her dark locks away from her face and adding a pretty pair of crystal beaded earrings, while Jim kept it simple in a classic fitted black suit and tie with vintage inspired boutonniere made of pheasant, black and Bordeaux colored feathers. Situated in the English-inspired parterre garden of the historic Owen-Thomas House close family and friends gathered for the intimate ceremony. Arrangements of white and yellow blooms decorated the space and set on the table where a quaint little seating area with iron benches was nestled in the gardens. Scottee and Jim exchanged vows flanked by two trees and in front of the small reflecting fountain situated in the center of the gardens.

After a few celebratory drinks of Kentucky bourbon served out of vintage silver rimmed glassware the celebration continued at The Olde Pink House for the dinner reception. Savannah's only 18th century mansion provided the perfect venue for the couple's decadent reception of elegant Southern cuisine. The rich event palette and vintage details of the reception worked seamlessly with the already preexisting decor of The Old Pink House. Guest tables were situated around the room and set by the fireplace where tall gold fluted vases held heart shaped wreaths made from small white blooms and vines. A variety of rich purple linens dressed the tables accented with gold chivari chairs. Scottee and Jim's table featured a beautiful lilac embroidered and eyelet base linen set with a deep aubergine velvet overlay trimmed in gold embroidery and tassels. Florist Harvey Designs created stunning centerpieces of mixed white and purple blooms ranging from a light wisteria hue to dark indigo all set in vintage gold vessels on antique mirror trays. Aged mercury votives adorned the tabletops adding a warm glow to the intimate dinner reception. Don't miss a single detail of Scottee and Jim's historic Savannah wedding, including the couple's unique display of old family photos.
