The Bride Andrea Gray, 25, merchandise presentation lead at Banana Republic and owner of AGH Event Maker The Groom Jonathan Harper, 27, occupational therapist at Live Oak Children’s Therapy The Date October 9 Andrea and Jon chose to combine two of their favorite colors, yellow and purple, along with gray (which is also the bride’s maiden name) for a fresh and modern garden wedding palette. Andrea used her background in design to style the décor and incorporated lots of nautical elements as a nod to their port city roots.

The couple attached custom photo buttons to the escort cards and displayed them on a bulletin board.
The bridesmaids chose their own dresses, but kept the look cohesive by sticking with dark purple and cocktail length hemlines.
Andrea and Jon took their first spin across the dance floor as the DJ played “Showtime,” by Nelly Furtado.
The bride and groom cut into a small cake and served the guests a variety of goodies like chocolate-orange cupcakes, pumpkin whoopie pies and red velvet cake pops.
The bride added bursts of purple and yellow to the wedding aisle with large tissue paper pompoms.
Keeping with Savannah tradition, the couple made their guests popcorn-filled “To Go Cups” designed by the bride.
White nautical rope was tied around the bouquet, which included succulents from the couple’s garden, lots of purple blooms and yellow craspedia.
Andrea found vintage shoe clips that matched her palette and mimicked the clusters of yellow craspedia used in all the flowers.
Curly branches, purple orchids and pops of yellow craspedia sprouted from beds of moss and succulents. Little birds perched atop each arrangement, tying together the theme of the day.
The bride and groom took a pedi-cab ride to the reception and rented another for their photographers, so they could snap a few romantic shots on the way.
Jon wanted to keep his groomsmen casual, so they wore gray pants with white shirts and handmade bowties.
