New Year’s Eve at The Alida Hotel in Savannah, GA Personal


Happy 2022, friends! I still don’t think I’ve quite processed that we are already in a brand new year…but this blog post makes it feel more real! We kicked off 2022 at the AMAZING Alida Hotel here in Savannah, GA with some of our favorite friends. We actually didn’t have tons of New Year’s plans…but then the Alida reached out to us and asked me to photograph the event. I was SO excited and so honored! Hayden and I told our friends, I asked Instagram to help me pick a last-minute outfit and we headed to the beautiful Alida rooftop bar called “The Lost Square”. They had these ADORABLE igloos set-up with champagne, bottle service, charcuterie, festive decor and a stunning view over-looking Savannah. We all felt like celebrities!! It was the BEST night and best way to ring in 2022.

I haven’t been doing a great job sharing personal posts recently…so I thought I’d share the images from the event with you! The Alida is a STUNNING place to stay if you are ever visiting Savannah…and I’ll be going for my own work retreat next week! I’ll be back to share more about that retreat and what I use it for. But, until then, enjoy scrolling through our NYE celebration!!

Are these not just the cutest thing ever!?

The sweetest friends!

Mixing in some iPhone photos because they are such sweet memories!

Love this guy so much.

Happy New Year!!!
