Georgia State Railroad Museum Wedding – Amanda + Josh
Do you remember Amanda and Josh’s dreamy Savannah engagement session at Wormsloe Historic Site? Well today, I get to share their beautiful wedding day. :)
Late last month Amanda and Josh were married at the Georgia State Railroad Museum in Savannah, Georgia. And y’all. It was just the best day. Here are just a few of my favorite moments of the day.
+ Amanda’s Hayley Paige dress. Need I say more? It was incredible.
+ Amanda gifted her mom a set of three connected frames (see image below) – one of her mom on her own wedding day, one for a bridal portrait of herself and one with a quote from their favorite musical, Wicked. “So much of me is what I learned from you. You’ll be with me like a handprint on my heart.” Perfect.
+ We had been planning to do their first look under the spanish moss in Forsyth Park. Wouldn’t you know it when we pulled up to the park to location scout the evening before…we saw the signs for the Savannah College of Art and Design Sidewalk Arts Festival. Geoff went to SCAD, so we knew what this meant…the park would be inundated the next day with people and shooting there might prove impossible. While we made a back up plan, we didn’t need to use it thanks to one low hanging tree that allowed us to block out most of the festival goers!
+ This was a family affair! Amanda’s maid of honor was her sweet sister, Josh’s best men were his hilarious and entertaining brothers and Josh’s brother-in-law and sister-in-law officiated the ceremony. Super special.
+ Josh’s son, Cameron, stole our hearts. What an adorable, kind, sweet and fun kid. I loved how they incorporated him into the ceremony. Amanda gave Cameron a ring of his own and then he gave one to Amanda. And when they asked him if he wanted to say anything, he looked at her and sweetly said, “I love you, Amanda.” And I was a puddle behind my camera.
+ Amanda had her grandmother’s brooch pinned in her bouquet. It was so special when Amanda showed it to her before they took a picture together.
+ When Amanda and Josh had their first kiss as the ceremony concluded, the train whistle blew. So fun.
Amanda and Josh…thank you. Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day. You and your friends and family welcomed us in so warmly…we are so grateful. Congratulations, you two!
