Although Lisa and Donovan attended the same middle school, their love story didn’t begin until years later with a simple Facebook message when the two were living in separate states. All of the messaging eventually led the couple to FaceTime calls, to falling in love, and to The Mackey House for their magical winter wedding.
Lisa and Donovan’s wedding had a classic, winter holiday feel to it, with deep red flowers in the bouquets, gold accents on the bride and bridesmaids’ dresses, and garland with red bows lining the Mackey House’s grand staircase. Lisa and Donovan shared their “first look” on the porch where they were blessed to see a bit of snowfall in Savannah. The couple held their ceremony in the open-air pavilion, complete with twinkle lights woven through the pavilion’s framework and a fire burning in the double-sided fireplace giving the space a dim, romantic glow.
After the ceremony, heart-warming speeches by loved ones were made on the Mackey House deck before everyone joined the newlywed couple on the light-up dance floor for a fun and entertaining night. As the night came to an end, Lisa and Donovan made their way down the grand staircase with a sparkler exit and shared one last kiss before heading off in a limo to officially begin their lives together as one.
