Dreamy Garden Wedding at The Mackey House
When Xiao and Hang's dreamy garden wedding landed in our inbox, we immediately knew we had to share it with you! The adorable duo met while in China, and have been long distance their entire relationship! Xiao is a student at SCAD, which made Savannah the perfect backdrop for their garden wedding. With endless gardens and a large deck for their reception, The Mackey House made such a gorgeous setting for Beloved Vendors Adrienna and Nicole from Ivory + Beau to work their magic, rain or shine!
"It was a rainy day, but they didn't let it get in their way! They were just so happy to be together, that rain didn't bother them one bit. Their ceremony took place under a pavilion, and we were able to transform the space into a romantic and intimate setting. We placed a floral garland across the fireplace, and filled the space with candles. They wanted to incorporate some of their Chinese traditions during the ceremony, including a drinking ceremony, as well as bowing and showing thanks for their parents, the universe, and each other. They spoke their vows in both English and Chinese, and you don't have to know Chinese to see how special those words were. Xiao was so emotional, and when Hang embraced her, there wasn't a dry eye in the whole room.
Their ceremony was on the deck of the Mackey House, which overlooks the gardens. Their colors were soft blush, creme, and lush greenery. Each table had large centerpieces in mercury vases, and tea light candles all over. Their wedding was such a reflection of them as a couple. They picked their favorite things, like their favorite band for the reception music, and their favorite restaurant for catering. We love when a couple wants to pick things they love, not what everyone expects you to pick for a wedding!" - Adrienna and Nicole, Planners and Florist
