We know you will love this colorful summer wedding with beautiful weather in full swing! Olivia and Jonathan were supposed to get married in 2020 but like so many, had to reschedule. The couple lives in Switzerland, so they hired Tara Skinner Events to make their wedding vision come true! They worked with Crystal, who helped them create a beautifully designed event. They wanted the wedding to be all about family since their two sons would be part of it. And they wanted their guests to really enjoy everything Savannah has to offer!
They chose the most iconic spot in Savannah for their ceremony – Forsyth Park Fountain! Izzy + Co. did an incredible job capturing this beautiful ceremony. Forsyth Fountain is so timeless as a backdrop that you need minimal decor. Guests are always in awe of the view!
When picking a venue for the reception, they wanted a space with indoor and outdoor spaces for guests to mingle. The Charles H Morris Center was such a great choice! This is a popular venue in Savannah and for a good reason! You are located downtown, with views of River Street, but you still have plenty of privacy. The lawn has a large patio that lets you set up multiple seating areas for cocktail hour. And they also have a covered patio area that is perfect for receptions.
While this wedding was filled with pops of bright colors, they also used natural tones and leather furniture to add a touch of warmth. They mixed the Giovanna Chesterfield Sofa and Chairs with our marble pieces for the cocktail hour on the patio. The deep button tufting, scrolled arms, and nailhead trim brought an elegant touch to the event. The Charles H Morris Center has black iron patio furniture, and our pieces work well with them! You can easily curate a custom design that will go with their patio pieces. Or you can have them remove all the furniture and just use our pieces!
Part of their reception was held outdoors, and part was inside. The dining and toasts took place in the covered patio area, with cafe lighting strung for a soft glow. Harvey Designs created beautiful centerpieces in gold open vases that let the blooms create one-of-a-kind pieces. The couple chose bright citrus hues mixed with lavender and blue, perfect for the summer! Their sweetheart table featured our Sweetheart Chairs, which are always a popular choice.
For the reception inside of the Morris Center, they had an intimate lounge featuring the Jekyll + Hyde Leather chairs with the Elise Sofa. The Eve Ottoman added a soft green touch, and our True Marble End Tables gave a place for some floral arrangements.
