If you’re planning a Savannah elopement, you might want to take a page out of April and David’s book and have an epic Wormsloe elopement (rain or shine!). These two have such an epic elopement story that needs to be shared, and I couldn’t have felt more grateful to have been their elopement photographer to capture all of the special moments.
It all started with a broken hand. The bride reached out to me, letting me know that she will need to wear a brace for her Savannah elopement. I told her not to worry, and that there are plenty of things we can do to mask her brace… but to be honest, some of my FAVORITE images of the day are photos where you see it. It was a part of their elopement day, and I think it only adds more personality. But, I digress!
We were looking at the forecast and knew that we would be braving one hell of a storm – heavy winds and a 100% chance of rain – which Savannah can be known for during our rainy season. I told the couple we can do our best to avoid the elements, or we can say “screw it,” and embrace it. That meant getting wet, getting muddy, but overall, it means having a blast because you simply don’t care about the weather and are too busy focused on celebrating your love to be bothered by the elements. Guess which path April and David chose?
Yep, you guessed it! April and David were ready to go dancing in the rain and jumping through the puddles together during their Savannah elopement!
We braved the wind and sideways rain for their first look (you can see just how windy it was by April’s umbrella that almost blew away!) and had an emotional moment before setting out for their Wormsloe ceremony. It rained throughout their entire ceremony, but that’s not the reason why there wasn’t a dry eye in the house! As soon as the two were officially pronounced husband and wife, the groom had a nosebleed and the two couldn’t stop laughing at all of the things their wedding day threw at them. It was so refreshing to see them truly having not a care in the world, even with the hiccups they encountered.
