She may have a New York zip code, but Grace Bonney followed her heart south of the Mason-Dixon line to throw the wedding her dreams. "I wanted a celebration to be very 'Brooklyn meets Deep South,'" says Virginia native, who met her now husband, Aaron Coles, shortly after she moved to New York City. After four and a half years of dating, the couple decided to have their wedding in Savannah, Georgia. "The city is a really saturated and dialed-up version of the South, and it was one of our top picks for a wedding destination," says Grace. "We absolutely love it there."
Here, newlyweds Aaron and Grace share a sweet kiss under an old oak tree in Savannah's Orleans Square.
