When you are traveling, you never know what gems may cross your path. This photograph, “Wedding in The Park” is one of those. We were in Savanna, GA the week of November 11, 2012. We parked our car and started to walk towards the historic riverfront and passed through several squares.
Savanna is the the city of “squares.”It is known as America’s first planned city. Savannah had 24 original squares; 22 squares are still in existence today. Some squares have monuments and others have fountains. They are great meeting places.The city was laid out in 1733 around four squares, each surrounded by four residential blocks and four civic blocks.
As we were walking towards the river we came upon a wedding about to begin in Oglethorpe Square.. The bride arrived in a horse drawn carriage laden with flowers. The ceremony in the square was mostly shaded. A color photograph of the wedding was dull while the black and white version was alive with tones from the foliage and trees. The white chairs for the visitors highlighted the couple exchanging rings.
The second photograph is of the bride arriving at the wedding.
