Chrissy and Joshua's Rustic Savannah Wedding

Southern Rustic Wedding Ideas

It was all about the rustic Southern charm and Italian touches at Chrissy and Joshua's gorgeous, love-filled big day. The couple met while volunteering at a Christian teen center and were only dating two weeks before they picked out Chrissy's engagement ring! Photographer Gagan Dhiman captured the outdoor wedding, which took place at the 9,000-acre farm Dunham Farms near Savannah, GA. Keep reading for more beautiful photos and to hear what the newlyweds had to say about her inspiration and planning process.

How would you describe your wedding's theme and vision?

Our theme was a Southern-charmed wedding with an Italian flare. Chrissy is from the South, and Josh is 100 percent Italian, and we both have embraced the other persons' roots. For favors, we had homemade jams and sugared pecans as well as mini burlap bags filled with chocolate-covered espresso beans. We had a few country songs played, while the last dance song was "Amore." Shrimp and grits were served alongside fresh pasta. We kept mixing and matching random things like that across the wedding. We also honeymooned in Italy.
