Rustic Summer Wedding at Reed’s Estate

SAVANNA + LANE | BROOKHAVEN, MS


2020-08-01_0001.jpg

I’ll never forget the first time I met Savanna and Lane! It was over coffee last year and I remember thinking how youthful they seemed. It was easy to tell how crazy they were about each other after talking with them. But then Lane did something a groom has never made me do during a consultation – he made me cry! I was already crying buckets while he told me the story of how he and Savanna met and about how he knew she was the one. I was completely captivated by how enraptured this young man was with his future wife. It was then that I immediately told him, Savanna, her sister and her mother that there was no earthly way I would be able to work with them because I wasn’t sure I’d ever stop crying! That was several months ago now, and I’ve become even more smitten with the now husband and wife team that they are. It is my sincerest hope that everyone finds somebody to love them the way these two love each other. Because if they do it will truly be a love that lasts for all time.

I’d never been to the Hideaway at Reed’s Estate before Savanna and Lane’s engagement session but I immediately fell in love with the property! With its spacious acreage, rustic vibe and bridges galore it was the perfect spot for the Rutland summer wedding. The team and I arrived to the girls getting ready in the airy loft area of the reception venue. Dressed in their silky pink robes, the ladies laughed and chatted over the day ahead. Surrounded by her sister, mother, DG sisters and friends, Savanna was regal as she slipped into her Maggie Sotero gown from Mimi’s Bridal. She gives off a very Audrey Hepburn/Scarlett O’Hara vibe which I’ve loved from the start. While the ceremony and reception venue were being prepared for the days festivities, we worked our way around the property capturing pretty portrait after pretty portrait. It’s no surprise that we all cried during Lane and Sav’s first look. It was as if Lane was seeing the sun for the first time when he saw his bride in her breathtaking gown. Soon after the couple wrapped up portrait time together, we also had Savanna’s first look with her father which was incredibly touching. The bride paid special attention to all of the days details from the white roses for her Delta Gamma sisters to the specially designed fans that were provided to keep guests cool during the ceremony to the wedding favors given at the reception. They were provided in honor of Lane and Savanna’s dog, Millie, a beautiful boxer who I had the pleasure of meeting at their engagement session. Flavored doggie biscuits in a bag featuring Millie’s picture sat alongside a record for guests to sign as they entered the reception hall. Every single aspect of the Rutland wedding day was spectacular. The first dances were especially emotional for the bride and groom as they were for the couples families. You couldn’t find a dry eye when the bride and groom danced their respective dances with their parents. Afterwards, cake was enjoyed by all and then it was soon time for the couple to make their grand exit. Pink roses were tossed over the couple as they made their way to the vintage powder blue Chevrolet getaway car. It was the perfect ending to an incredibly joyful day!

FOR THE COUPLE

Savanna and Lane – thank you so so much for entrusting the team and I with capturing your special day! It is an honor that you would want us to be part of these precious memories! You guys handled rearranging your wedding day due to COVID like total ROCKSTARS! Your day truly came together in the most fantastic way and it was one I won’t ever forget! I hope you love looking back on your wedding as much as we loved being part of it! Lots of love and extra big hugs, Shea
