Savannah Wedding at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa

The Historic River Street in Savannah, Georgia reins as the perfect backdrop for Savannah weddings at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa.  The elegant hotel provides spectacular grounds for any destination wedding.  It’s spacious outdoors accommodates any size guest list and is a dreamy location overlooking the first city of Georgia.  I’m sure these reasons are why Lindsey and Chad chose their wedding to take place at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa.

Lindsey and Chad first met on New Years Day 2015 and three weeks later they had their first date.  They both love to travel every chance they get but it was home where Chad chose to pop the question.

I was honored to be chosen Chad & Lindsey’s wedding photographer (Jerina Mac Photography) and find myself rubbing shoulders  among some of the top Savannah Wedding Vendors.  All About You Entertainment, Kato Floral Designs, and Savannah Rum Runners Bakery to name a few.

Enjoy the moments I captured of Chad and Lindsey’s Wedding.

How They Met

Tim and Ashley met the year of 2007 at high school in Cherry Hill, New Jersey during rehearsals for “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  Ashley was in the cast and Tim was part of the stage crew.  They met when their mutual friend, and now best man Don, suggested they all go out for pizza together.  After nine years, separate colleges, Ashley’s internship at Disney World, Tim’s moving to Savannah, and graduating from police academy…whew…they finally tied the knot. 

The Proposal

Christmas 2015 was their first Christmas together in Savannah.  On Christmas Eve they were opening presents and Tim insisted that Ashley open her card from him last.  As presents were being opened, Ashley kept asking about the card but Tim insisted, “not yet”.  Finally came time for the card to be opened.  Ashley opened it and read it. It kept mentioning “three words” and different ways to say, “I love you”.  Tim had written “how about four more words.”  When Ashley looked up Tim was on one knee and had the ring box out.

The Wedding

They finally tied the knot on April 7, 2017 in Savannah, Georgia.  The beautiful ceremony took place at The Marshal House with friends and family from several states. There is one special thing I want to share with you about the big hat you’ll see Tim wearing and holding throughout the photos.  Tim lost his dad at a very young age but his mother has done a remarkable job at keeping the memories of his dad very much alive.  The hat belonged to Tim’s dad so a way to have his dad present at the wedding, he carried his dad’s hat down the isle and sat it next to his mom.  I bet that hat has a lot of great stories to pass on through Tim and the generations to come.

It was my privilege to be a part of this loving, energetic, kindhearted family whom I had never met until April 7.  And what a privilege to photograph one of Savannah’s finest own police officer’s and his beautiful bride.  Thank you Tim and Ashley.  You will forever be a part of my life.

Family Lifestyle Photo Session

This fall has been booked solid with family sessions.  I want to share a few of them with you.  I had so much fun with this family, I just wanted to go home with them!  Their energy and enthusiasm was so contagious and the love for their four legged family members was so sweet.  My most favorite part of the shoot though was their precious daughter.  She was a cross between Shirley Temple and “Buffy” off of Family Affair (both TV shows from the 1960’s so you millennials stop scratching your heads saying who??)

Enjoy this lifestyle photo session.

Blog: Luke & Mandy |Jerina Mac Photography

This godly couple from Colorado celebrated their destination wedding in the beautiful city of Savannah, Georgia on Nov. 27, 2016.  The quaint ceremony and reception was held at Brockington Hall Event Venue across from Forsyth Park. Before the ceremony,  Mandy strolled through the squares on the Old Towne Trolly as she prepared for the first look in Warren Square with her future husband, Luke.  What a special treat to witness a young couple seeing one another for the first time, dressed in their tux and wedding gown on their wedding day.  After a few private minutes, the bride and groom (and me), ride to Chatham Square where we shot gorgeous family and wedding party photos.

Please enjoy their wedding day with me as you view a few of their photos on such a blessed day.

Blog: Trey and Diana Weeks Savannah, Georgia Wedding

Trey and Diana met at Forsyth Park where they were both jogging after work.  From that point on, they started jogging together a few nights a week, usually followed by a few drinks and dinner.  Through their “jogging and conversations”, they grew to understand that they had numerous mutual friends, both attended Georgia Southern at the same time and both had lived in Savannah for the past 11 years.  There is no doubt in their minds that God waited for the right timing to put these two together on that special day in  February.

A couple of days after Thanksgiving, they decided to decorate a Christmas tree together.  After taking a break to grab some dinner, Trey got down on one knee and popped the question.  Well, these photos tell the rest of the story.  Enjoy!
