The Tybee Wedding Chapel           Photographer Jerina Mac Photography

This love-story began in 2014 when one of Katie’s close friends introduced her and Kirk while attending a birthday party in Vernon, Connecticut.  With Katie living in New Jersey and Kirk living in Connecticut, they would meet half way for dating.  In that same year, Katie moved to Georgia for work related reasons.  Yes, Kirk couldn’t stand being away from Katie so a few months later he followed.  They were both hit by the love bug.  They were engaged in 2016 and married just a couple of weeks ago at The Tybee Wedding Chapel on Tybee Island, Georgia.

Stacey & Tasha Wed @ The Mackey House

Stacey & Tasha Wed @ The Mackey House

This premier wedding venue overflowed with southern charm for this Illinois couple.  Of course, Stacey and Tasha brought their own charm to The Mackey House along with friends and family from all over the United States.  Not only was the venue a premier venue, the vendors chosen by the bride were also premier vendors.  The list includes Jerina Mac Photography (Savannah), Southern Graces (caterer, florist and detail decor from Beaufort, SC), Rev. Joe Wadas (Savannah), DJ Joe Kollege (Chicago, Ill.), and planners Jackie Weems & Genise Walker.

The Couple.  Stacey & Tasha met in September of 2001.  Tasha had been out with her friends, celebrating her birthday.  At the end of the night, hugs and goodbyes were said to her friends and there stood “Mr. Right”.  Yes, I’m talking about Stacey; who at that time was a stranger asking, “Where’s my hug?”.  Now who in their right mind would turn down a request from such a handsome.  Well, of course, Tasha being the friendly person that she is, gave Stacey a hug that would make him think he had been a friend forever.

Although their courtship was brief, they maintained their friendship over the years.  In August 2010, they rekindled their relationship and on September 6, 2015 they became engaged.

Joey + Taylor Wedding at The Mackey House

Joey + Taylor  Wedding at The Mackey House

As soon as Taylor and Joey arrive at The Mackey House, you can see and feel the excitement through those two and their wedding party.  The guys have this awesome “mancave” and the girls have a “princess-like” suite to relax in and begin to transform themselves into the picture perfect wedding party Taylor has always dreamed of having on her wedding day.  As the caterers, florist, DJ, and wedding planners are doing their part, I, as the wedding day photographer, am on the move capturing every special moment taking place.

Taylor and Joey brought their “A” game on hiring the following vendors for their spectacular wedding day celebration:

This athletic couple met through mutual friends and started to realize sports was just one of many things they had in common.  Joey was playing baseball at Armstrong University and Taylor had just transferred to Armstrong to play soccer.  What better place for Joey to propose to Taylor than the first place they met…the baseball field.

Savannah Wedding at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa

Savannah Wedding at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa

The Historic River Street in Savannah, Georgia reins as the perfect backdrop for Savannah weddings at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa.  The elegant hotel provides spectacular grounds for any destination wedding.  It’s spacious outdoors accommodates any size guest list and is a dreamy location overlooking the first city of Georgia.  I’m sure these reasons are why Lindsey and Chad chose their wedding to take place at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa.

Lindsey and Chad first met on New Years Day 2015 and three weeks later they had their first date.  They both love to travel every chance they get but it was home where Chad chose to pop the question.

I was honored to be chosen Chad & Lindsey’s wedding photographer (Jerina Mac Photography) and find myself rubbing shoulders  among some of the top Savannah Wedding Vendors.  All About You Entertainment, Kato Floral Designs, and Savannah Rum Runners Bakery to name a few.

Enjoy the moments I captured of Chad and Lindsey’s Wedding.

Brett & Andrea| Tybee Chapel Wedding

How They Met

Brett and Andrea both worked at CVS Pharmacy for two years.  They developed a friendship and later turned into a romance.  It was like a light switch turning on and both knew they belonged together.

The Proposal

It was December 13, 2015.  Andrea’s mother had come to visit before Christmas.  Andrea LOVES Christmas and of course, she already had her tree up and decorated.  Andrea and her mother had been Christmas shopping all day and when they got back home, they walked in, Andrea said,” Brett,  look at the Christmas decoration mom   bought for the apartment.  It’s so cute!”  He hesitated to answer but then said, “I bought a Christmas decoration today too.”  Andrea was in shock!  Brett never bought Christmas decorations…ever.  He proceeded to tell her that it was on the tree.  So they went over to the tree (he did so great…he even put the ornament low so he could get down on one knee.)  It was a crystal angel ornament with its hands in the praying position and on the hands was an engagement ring.

Collin & Casey’s Wedding Blog

How They Met

Collin and Casey started dating in 2010 at the age of 16 when they met in high school at North Cobb Christian.  They dated throughout high school and continued dating while attending  college together at Kennesaw State University.

The Proposal

On February 20, 2016, Casey woke up for a mother/daughter tea at the St. Regis.  The waiter brought her iPad with a video which Collin had made for her.  After watching the video, Casey was given a “clue” to go to the next location to watch the next video.  After several clues and videos, the last video led Casey out to the pool area where Collin was waiting with these huge “MARRY ME” letters floating in the pool.  All of their closest friends and family were on the balcony watching over this madly in love couple as Collin popped the question.

The Ceremony

The White Oaks Barn which is located in Dahlonega, Georgia was such a beautiful backdrop for Collin and Casey’s wedding.  The weather was perfect, the rolling mountains were picturesque and the wedding party was so cute, I just wanted to bring all of them home with me.  You should look at The White Oaks Barn website and take a look for yourself.  Enjoy the photos and feel free to lose yourselves in the fairytale love story of Casey and Collin.

Tim & Ashley | Jerina Mac Photography

How They Met

Tim and Ashley met the year of 2007 at high school in Cherry Hill, New Jersey during rehearsals for “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  Ashley was in the cast and Tim was part of the stage crew.  They met when their mutual friend, and now best man Don, suggested they all go out for pizza together.  After nine years, separate colleges, Ashley’s internship at Disney World, Tim’s moving to Savannah, and graduating from police academy…whew…they finally tied the knot. 

The Proposal

Christmas 2015 was their first Christmas together in Savannah.  On Christmas Eve they were opening presents and Tim insisted that Ashley open her card from him last.  As presents were being opened, Ashley kept asking about the card but Tim insisted, “not yet”.  Finally came time for the card to be opened.  Ashley opened it and read it. It kept mentioning “three words” and different ways to say, “I love you”.  Tim had written “how about four more words.”  When Ashley looked up Tim was on one knee and had the ring box out.

The Wedding

They finally tied the knot on April 7, 2017 in Savannah, Georgia.  The beautiful ceremony took place at The Marshal House with friends and family from several states. There is one special thing I want to share with you about the big hat you’ll see Tim wearing and holding throughout the photos.  Tim lost his dad at a very young age but his mother has done a remarkable job at keeping the memories of his dad very much alive.  The hat belonged to Tim’s dad so a way to have his dad present at the wedding, he carried his dad’s hat down the isle and sat it next to his mom.  I bet that hat has a lot of great stories to pass on through Tim and the generations to come.

It was my privilege to be a part of this loving, energetic, kindhearted family whom I had never met until April 7.  And what a privilege to photograph one of Savannah’s finest own police officer’s and his beautiful bride.  Thank you Tim and Ashley.  You will forever be a part of my life.
