Oh, you Low Country, you. Every time I visit the historic southern coastal cities I fall a little more in love.
Thanks to a sweet elopement, work brought me back to Savannah. This time, I brought Ben along with me - which always adds more romance. I don't know about you, but my fave kind of date includes strolling downtown with a well crafted coffee in hand. Savannah offers plenty of eye candy with local shops and cafe's lined with moss laden oaks.
Apparently, we were feeling a little Parisian inspired because the two big stops for the day were The Paris Market and Café M.
Even the outside of this Parisian shop has me ohhing and ahhing. Cafe tables with marble tops, gilded edging around the windows, it's right out of a European dream. Inside, you find a delicious coffeeshop along with two stories of artisan books, furniture, APOTHECARY, candles, and even a children's corner (where I literally wanted to buy it out and redecorate our playroom).
They even have citrus flavored ice water to appease that the scorching southern heat. It's more than a shop, it''s about entering a different world, one where you never want to leave.
Ben and I love a good local cafe that offers hand crafted cuisine. Café M did not disappoint! Parisian mouth-watering CROISSANTS ordered with a server boasting a French accent, all of the restaurant details were oh so white and pretty. Even a fireplace! We opted to sit outside to take in the bustling city.
The Elopement was in the Victorian District, which was a new part of the city for me to explore. The architecture and charm were the perfect backdrop to intimate nuptials. After the ceremony, we simply walked the southern streets, down by Forsyth Park, for all of our portraits. More on that Later!
xoxo and "au revoir" Lovelies
