melinda and sean – savannah wedding – {wedding photography}

I had the opportunity to be part of Weddings for Warriors in Savannah. Through the efforts of Jim and Becky Byous, many volunteers, and vendors from in and out of town, Weddings for Warriors is able to give free ceremonies and vow renewals to active US Military personnel. What a great way to honor our servicemen!

The wedding day started with the ladies getting ready at the American Legion Post 135. With large picture frame windows and hardwoods, the place is a dream for natural light photography.

Typically, on the wedding day, I already know the couple. However, I first met Melinda when she was getting her hair done.
Below are a few details on Melinda’s dress.
I took advantage of the windows for Melinda’s bridal portraits.
The following images show how behind every soldier is a beautiful strong wife, holding down the fort.
Melinda and Sean had their vow renewal at First Baptist Church.

A few couple portraits near the church.

We gathered at the Mulberry Inn for cocktail hours. I grabbed a few more images of Melinda and Sean before the reception started.
The couples were led in a march to the Morris Center by Rick Buckley, a bagpiper. I confess I got a little teary eye watching this march.

Each couple was introduced under arched swords. How amazing.

Then danced to At Last by Etta James.

Each couple was gifted a wedding cake by Sandra Fitzsimmons.

After dinner, the dancing started!

And yes… more kissing!

Melinda and Sean – We wish you many years of happiness. Thank you letting us be a part of your day.
