{Real Jewish Weddings} Savannah, GA

Yliana and Nick met through mutual friends, and it’s easy to say that this couple knew what they wanted when they realized they had it: he proposed in a letter after three months of dating and were married nine months later. Nick was raised Jewish and Yliana was not, but they had gone to a Jewish wedding together and both loved the warmth, beauty, and attention to personal details in the Jewish ceremony and knew they’d want to be married the same way with the same traditions. Originally, the plan was to have a big wedding, but they realized the best option for them would be a very private and personal wedding between them and a rabbi. Because they love the architecture of Savannah, they chose Forsyth Park as the ceremony site and learned that their’s was the first Jewish wedding to ever occur there.

Because the wedding was truly all about them, Yliana and Nick hired a stellar wedding vendor team to design and coordinate a dream wedding. After the ceremony under Forsyth’s Park first chuppah, they sat at a table to drink champagne and enjoy wedding cake! You’ll notice their table is set for six; Yliana and Nick included their stellar wedding team in their celebration.

The details in this wedding are so intricate and beautifully designed. Read more about the vintage details of this special and unique evening at the Mill Crest Vintage wedding blog!

Mazel tov, Yliana and Nick!

    Mazel tov! Thank you for sharing their absolutely gorgeous wedding, Yi’s vision was so ornate and beautifully orchestrated I was amazed by how it all looked once we set it all up. We even had tourist gawking and watching as everything unfolded. By the way, us vendors devoured the wedding cake, it was almost to pretty to eat, but it was soooooo good!!

    Lovely wedding! Just wanted to let you know for the record though that Savannah has a large Jewish population and there are loads of Jewish weddings in Forsyth. Here’s one we shot there in April of 2012 – http://savannahweddingphoto.com/michelle-and-ben – And I’m certain it was not the first either. In fact, the third oldest Jewish congregation in American, Congregation Mickve Israel, is just one block from Forsyth. We love our local Jewish history!!!

    That’s funny because Shaun told me the same thing when I told him what I call him here. Why do you say fucking Buffalo?, he asks me. Is it only a reference to our distance, or do you have disdain for my city?The distance, I say. I’m sure Buffalo is fine. You’re there.I love my city, and I’m very defensive about it, so I had to be su2&I.e#8r17;m looking forward to meeting Buffalo, I say.
