A Note from the Photographer: "Virginia and Mark's Savannah elopement was the stuff of dreams- peaceful and pretty and full of meaning. There were no bridesmaids or catering mishaps or any of the stress that so many weddings can entail; instead, it was just the two of them + their officiant and myself, in a serene garden, nestled on one of the loveliest streets in Savannah. They eloped at the Gastonian, a Savannah bed-and-breakfast built in 1868. It's actually two houses adjoined by a courtyard and catwalk and the whole place took my breath away from the moment I walked in the front door. Virginia and Mark are from Alabama but decided to elope in the most meaningful way, choosing Savannah because eloping to Savannah might just be the most romantic thing I've ever heard. Virginia sipped champagne and got dressed, and Mark gifted her with a series of sweet handmade wooden boxes, filled with hand-sewn hearts and sayings that were special to them and their relationship. We took photos throughout the Gastonian, they shared a short but sweet ceremony in the garden, and then they were whisked away to a private dinner in a horse-drawn carriage, just the two of them. It was the most beautiful day."
