Melinda Marries David

On the evening of August 8, 2013, I had a first. This was the first time I experienced a wedding at the historic Fort James Jackson. This was the venue for the memorable wedding of Melinda Bartlett and David Gould.

I loved this venue and its fascinating history. This is the oldest standing brick fort in Georgia. It was originally constructed as part of President Thomas Jefferson’s defensive network in 1808.

The fort is guarded by soldiers who are in period uniforms. They are wearing wool on a hot Savannah day!

This fort features daily cannon firings.

On this particular occasion, the wedding of Melinda and David was particularly memorable. Their family and guests were friendly and hospitable.

David and Melinda are a delightful couple. They were such a pleasure to work with. I loved the personal touches they had.

First of all, I loved David’s vintage look, with the suit and hat. The groom’s classic look was matched by the bride’s elegant style.

At the end of the ceremony, as I introduced “Mr and Mrs David and Melinda Gould” the guests cheered and the cannons fired. This was an amazingly memorable way to start the marriage with a bang!

Other personal touches included a “Tree” that the guests could sign.


There was the Corn Hole Set which highlighted the University of Georgia.

My favorite personal touch, though, would have to be the Groom’s cake that had the Zombie hand on it!

Melinda and David, you are an awesome couple, and I’m thrilled that I was a part of your wedding.

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs David and Melinda Gould!
