Savanna and Mitch Perman’s wedding portrayed all elements of class and tradition with eucalyptus greenery, chic champagne dresses, and fresh, white roses. The simplistic style allowed the couple to have fun with the wedding planning process and cherish every moment on their wedding day.
The Permans were involved with the majority of the planning for their big day, which made their celebration with friends and family even more special. Choosing to keep traditional elements in the wedding, the couple lit a unity candle during the ceremony and included an anniversary dance during the reception for all the married couples.
Another element Savanna and Mitch added to their wedding was a memory board to honor their grandparents who had passed away. Adorned with pictures and a sentimental message, the memory board was a simple yet thoughtful way to celebrate a special day with all of their loved ones.
On their wedding day, the couple’s mindset of “don’t sweat the small stuff” took on a new meaning as Savanna and Mitch tied the knot in 104 degree heat. Thankfully, with large fans, the venue cooled off quickly.
Savanna and Mitch embraced the hot, sunny weather with romantic pictures at sunset. With all their planning, even something as unpredictable as extreme heat in early summer didn’t stop the couple from enjoying this relationship milestone.
The night closed off on the dance floor with the couple surrounded by friends and family as everyone sang along to “Friends in Low Places”—an unforgettable end to a day that Savanna and Mitch will always hold close to their heart. //
