Intimate And Colorful Soho South Cafe Wedding

May 11, 2021 | olivia

With mismatched colorful chairs, bohemian rugs, and an autumn color palette, Amanda and Kyle’s Soho South Cafe wedding was colorful, trendy, and a Pinner’s dream. This venue was the only one they looked at, and it was love at first sight. Not only is the venue both stunning and unique with its high ceilings, large windows, and strung lights, but Ivory & Beau didn’t shy away from adding beautiful colors and textures to the space. 

This colorful day also included bridesmaids in perfectly mismatched dresses, a beautiful embroidered bridal denim jacket, and terracotta pot seating charts. We’re definitely suckers for a good bohemian wedding, and this one is one for the books. Get ready to add some inspiration to your mood board with photos captured by Mackensey Alexander

Amanda and Kyle

The Wedding:

Soho South Cafe, Savannah, Georgia

Beautiful and Safe Celebration

I’m just so proud that it all came together as perfectly as it did despite everything going on in 2020. We were so stressed about having the wedding and we ended up having to decrease the guest list significantly. It was beautiful, safe, and perfect, and I wouldn’t change a thing!

A Soho South Cafe Wedding

Honestly, it was the only venue we looked at. I saw some photos on Instagram and knew I wanted to check it out. We went and it was perfect. It really fit the vibe we were going for.

Personalizing Their Ceremony

Our officiant was my best friend. We recently moved to Savannah and didn’t know anyone locally yet that we felt comfortable asking to officiate our ceremony. Asking my best friend ended up being the best decision because it was personalized and so special.

DIY Party Favors

We had DIY party favors for all the guests. I ordered a bunch of 2-inch succulents and cacti then planted them in small terracotta pots. My mom and I painted to match the wedding. It was so cute and I know a lot of my friends and family still have theirs at home.

Unique And Powerful Proper Hotel Wedding

May 11, 2021 | olivia

Creating a unique wedding that feels like it’s all your own makes your special day feel absolutely perfect. Brittny and Lawrence’s Proper Hotel Wedding was unique to their relationships with each other and their community. Not only was this the first wedding ever done at this hotel, but this couple didn’t leave a unique detail out of it. 

From a semi-circle seating arrangement to a Chuppah drenched in baby’s breath, Isabel Kate Events helped create a very 70s-inspired celebration. Plus, Van Morrison’s daughter sang at the wedding—truly amazing. And let’s talk about the couple’s wedding day looks. Brittny was absolutely glowing at 7 months pregnant in her sleek white bridal gown and Lawrence kept it classic in a grey suit. But we won’t spoil the whole thing! Keep scrolling to see more of this unique wedding captured by Junebug member Teri B Photography.

A Memorable Proper Hotel Wedding

Walking into the ceremony together was incredibly emotional and memorable. We set up the room in a semi-circle to represent the community. It was a powerful configuration to have everyone facing and surrounding us as we walked to the Chuppah together.

Unique and Personalized Ceremony

Our ceremony was very personal. We incorporated my husband’s Jewish background and my spiritual yoga practice. Our co-officiants were my yoga teacher friend, Wah, and Lawrence’s long-time friend, Andrew, who introduced us. They guided us through a ceremony where we included traditional rituals, blessings, and readings from our family, friends, and community. The ceremony allowed for everyone in attendance to participate, as well as acknowledgment of those who couldn’t be with us. The ceremony took place under a Chuppah made of baby’s breath, notes, and small items guests attached to the Chuppah.

A Surprise Serenade

The biggest surprise, and the most memorable moment, was when Lawrence—as a complete surprise to me—got up on stage with the band to sing Crimson and Clover. He had secretly prepared with a voice coach. It was amazing and everyone had so much fun with it! I was so beyond surprised and touched that he had the courage to do that.
