I had the pleasure of meeting Savannah and Russell several months before their wedding and Savannah’s sweet personality stood out. She is a natural beauty both inside and out. She was in her last year of college at UNC and needless to say, didn’t have the necessary time to coordinate all the details of planning her wedding. Russell traveled extensively for his job. Their ceremony took place at Clemmons Moravian Church, Russell’s family church. The night of the rehearsal I got to meet their lovely parents and family and found them warm and welcoming. 

Their reception followed in the Maya Angelou’s Magnolia Room at the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel located in Winston Salem’s historic downtown R.J. Reynolds Building. The hotel is the architectural muse for the Empire State Building, with its art deco architecture throughout. Coincidentally, Savannah and Russell chose wedding invitations with an art deco theme, even before they chose the hotel for their reception.

 Savannah and Russell where such a joy to work with and expressed their appreciation at every meeting we had, which as their coordinator made me want to work harder for this wonderful couple.  

Best wishes for a life full of joy and happiness!

Savannah's advice to new brides-to-be - Try to take mental pictures of the day as it goes because it does go by really quick and you want to be able to remember all the good moments during the wedding.
