Wedding Traditions

My family loves Halloween! Of course, what 5 year old doesn’t enjoy putting on a superhero costume and collecting handfuls of candy? My wife loves prepping for Halloween- she stocks up on candy and gets great joy handing it all out to trick-or-treaters. Me? I love horror movies. It’s pretty much a must for me to watch the classic Halloween movie on Halloween. It’s the one day when it’s ok to pretend to be someone else as you stuff yourself with candy.

Isn’t it funny how we come to celebrate or hold on to certain traditions. Halloween for instance is largely based on the Celtic Pagan celebration of Samhain, where they would dress in costume and give out treats to ward off and appease spirits. 

This got me thinking about weddings and some of the many traditions that we still cling to today.

Mighty Eighth Museum Wedding

Couples select a venue for lots of different reasons, such as location, beauty, or cost. Candi and Mike chose the National Museum of the Mighty Eight Air Force for a much deeper reason. Not only was Mike a pilot in the military, but Candi’s dad flew a P-51 Mustang in the Mighty Eighth Air Force during WWII. So what better place for Candi and Mike’s love story to move into a new chapter than at the museum honoring those that served in the Mighty Eighth. 

Candi and Mike dated and even attended prom together before life took them on separate journeys. Now having reunited, their love story picked up where it left off. Candi and Mike chose to have a “first look”, which worked out perfectly, and allowed us to capture some beautiful photos in the garden before afternoon showers popped up. We were also able to capture a photo with a P-51 in the background to honor Candi’s dad.

Until Death or Zombies Do We Part

“Until death or zombies do we part.” Any couple that sneaks zombies into their vows is my kinda couple. Kim and Quinn chose The Barn at Red Gate Farms for their Savannah destination wedding. Kim and Quinn were all smiles from the second their eyes met as she emerged from the barn. The couple’s friend, Gary, did a great job officiating and I don’t think they stopped smiling for the remainder of the day.

After photos on the grounds surrounding the barn, DJ Brad Tatom fired up the music and kept the party going into the night.

Congratulations Kim and Quinn! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your beautiful day.

Sweet Tybee Island Wedding Chapel Wedding

The Tybee Island Wedding Chapel has long been one of my favorite venues. Add in a super adorable couple and you get one pretty spectacular wedding day. Sarah and John’s friends and family all agree on one thing. Sarah and John are the perfect match for one another. Spend more than 5 minutes with them and you can easily see why. 

From the sweet ceremony to all of the personal touches the day was magical from start to finish. Plus, you hardly ever go wrong with a live band and Leopold’s Ice Cream. John,  being a musician himself, totally stole the show when he joined the band for a song.

What I Learned From Watching Gold Rush

Last week I decided to work at home a couple of days, which was probably my first mistake. I turned the TV on the Discovery Channel and a marathon of the series Gold Rush was on. As it turns out, the 10th season was premiering on Friday, so it was all Gold Rush all week. 

I’m sure you know what’s coming next...yup I was sucked in to watching part of a TV show marathon. I’m not sure what it is about the show. I guess it’s true that we’ll watch just about anything, as long as there’s a little drama. If you haven’t seen it- the show follows 3 gold mining crews as they use modern day techniques to mine their claims in the Yukon. It’s a lot of heavy equipment moving a lot of dirt, which is not good for the environment.

As I was watching, I began to realize that it was more than just mindless entertainment. I could see the mining bosses were giving a lesson in running a business, whether they knew it or not.
