On what was, for Savannah, just a normal Tuesday, she and Wes were heading out for a casual early Valentine’s dinner, as she had to work on the actual day. On their way, Wes got a call from his dad (and boss), saying that he needed to stop by a family friend’s warehouse to check on the heating system. When they pulled up, Wes’s dad met them with a flashlight, saying the power had been turned off because the building was for sale. As they made their way up the service elevator, Savannah saw the glow of candles and a table covered with roses. Wes walked to the table, picked up a box, and got down on one knee, asking Savannah to make him the happiest man in the world. As she nodded, he turned her around to reveal a sign saying “She said YES” and their family and friends appeared. They’d all come together to set up her perfect “random Tuesday” proposal!
The couple, who spent their first date on a horseback ride, were married on July 13th, 2013, at Chapel Valley Farms in Vinemont, Alabama. The barn and orchard gave their wedding the rustic, vintage feel they’d dreamed of, infusing their wedding with a sense of romance and nostalgia.
Savannah’s Justin Alexander gown “complimented the vintage style of the wedding perfectly,” she says. An alencon lace overlay flowed down to a dropped waist, while the skirt was all drama. To top it all off, a pair of cowboy boots with bright teal cut-outs peeked out from beneath her skirt. Inside her dress, she wore pins belonging to her great grandmother and great-great grandmother. “I loved having them close to me on my big day,” she says.
