The historic city of Savannah is one of the most popular destinations for weddings. Savannah GA seems to have everything that a bride dreams of for her perfect wedding day – historic buildings, beautiful locations for wedding photos, a near-perfect year-round climate and unrivalled venues for the ceremony and reception.
Horsedrawn carriages can be used to transport the bride and groom through the cobbled streets of Savannah’s Historic District to their chosen reception venue. This well-located city also has some premier luxury accommodations for the wedding guests and for the honeymoon afterwards.
Monterey Square and the Wedding Cake Mansion
Savannah’s Monterey Square is a popular location for a wedding ceremony. It has certainly witnessed plenty of history over the last 160 years. The graceful tree-lined square centers on a central monument in the green park to honor Casimir Pulaski, who sacrificed his life at the Siege of Savannah in 1779.
The leafy green square is overlooked by some of the most beautiful historic homes in Savannah, including the elegant white mansion appropriately known as the Wedding Cake Mansion. This elegant historic home with its white bay window and stained glass is decorated with elaborate molding and plasterwork which makes the house resemble a beautiful iced wedding cake.
Recently restored, it is now an upscale vacation rental which is ideal for wedding parties to host their reception. In fact, owner Tammy Jo Long, revealed she will be celebrating her own wedding on Monterey Square later this year in an interview with Travel and Tour World.
The entire Wedding Mansion property, including the separate Carriage House and Garden Suite, sleeps up to 20 guests in luxurious style.
Tybee Island Wedding Chapel
For a wedding right on the ocean, the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel is a great choice. The simple wooden pews and raftered ceiling provide a blank canvas for any bride to decorate with flowers in her chosen color scheme. After the service, the beach makes the perfect informal backdrop for photographs before the couple is whisked away to their chosen reception venue.
