A Natural, Rustic Wedding at Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum in Savannah, Georgia

The historic charm of Savannah, Georgia, inspired the destination wedding of New Yorkers Faith Mulroy (24 and a student) and Brent Dibble (27 and a resident physician) at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, a 19th-century home with a pair of gardens and an open-air event space designed for celebrating. Their tented ceremony incorporated rustic, natural elements that echoed the lush grounds with live oaks and Spanish moss. Their florist, Amy of Harvey Designs, filled the day with overflowing greenery, wooden slabs and driftwood to enhance the feeling of being outdoors. White and neutral accents and string lights channeled the romantic ambience of Savannah’s mossy live oaks. Passionate about food, Faith and Brent prioritized sharing Chinese cuisine and Southern barbecue. While those may not seem to mesh, chef Nick Mueller of Mahgniffe, created the perfect fusion menu using all their favorite flavors and ingredients. “He was able to get every food we mentioned into our menu while still making the dinner cohesive,” Faith says. Wedding planners Meredith and Genina at From This Day Forward guided Faith and Brent every step of the way, and Jade + Matthew Take Pictures was on hand to capture the sweet Savannah details and intimate moments.
