Crystal Palace Wedding Venue, New Orleans | Savannah and Ryan

September 2, 2022

The big day was kicked off with sweets and sweet moments. Savannah and her favorite women shared beautiful memories together around a mimosa bar and a pastry station. The sweetest moment of the morning was when River, Savannah and Ryan’s son, came to surprise his mom. The excitement grew as each one of the women got their hair and makeup was done by Caitlin Murphy Gallet and  Dazzle Doll Salon. Once everyone was all dolled up Savannah and her mother slipped away so she could get into her beautifully fitted Linen Jolie Bridal wedding dress. The two then found Savannah’s father to show him her dress for the first time. In another touching moment, Savannah’s father was absolutely beaming at how happy and beautiful his daughter was as she pinned his boutonniere. Then the bridesmaids, in their blue Town and Country Bridal dresses, joined the family. They went absolutely crazy when they saw how radiant Savannah was. There was so much raving that Savannah had barely enough time to get into her Rolls Royce from Alert Transportation and get to the Immaculate Conception church.

Ryan is such a solid guy. Savannah describes him as being her rock. We really got to see just how accurate that statement is when he was getting ready surrounded by the people that mean the most to him. He’s so supportive and loving, especially with their son, River. Ryan and his buddies had a great time getting ready and they all cheered when they saw how handsome he looked in his sleek tuxedo from John’s Tuxedos.

At the Immaculate Conception church, Ryan stood at the altar waiting to see his bride start her walk down the aisle to him. As soon as he got the first peek of white, he started getting emotional. Savannah glowed as she floated down to him. Their eyes locked onto each other once they both stood together at the altar in front of all their friends and family, all of whom partied the night away afterward in celebration of Savannah and Ryan. The party was absolutely crazy. Savannah’s father was doing the alligator on the dance floor and her high school bestie was dropping it on the dance floor.
