Wedding Blessings....August...Southern Gardens!

Your August garden on a southern plantation in Savannah....soft cool breezes with giant oak trees dripping with spanish moss and glowing lanterns....

August birthstone is periodot symbolizing protection, money and healing.

August flower is gladioli and yellow poppy symbolizing sincerity, wealth and success.

I have selected Savannah, Georgia for your wedding venue. There is probably no place that can equal the southern beauty and charm of Savannah. The entire wedding party and guests can enjoy your wedding along with a weekend touring this historic city.

 A small southern chapel will be the wedding site hosting the exchange of your vows.

Invision exchanging your wedding vows in the beautiful setting of Savannah’s historic Beaulieu Plantation district. Their southern gardens surrounding the wedding gazebo provide the perfect scenery for your wedding ceremony and photos. Newlyweds and up to 20 wedding guests may celebrate a romantically memorable wedding day in this intimate historic Savannah, Georgia private Victorian Gazebo setting.

Gazebo Weddings of Savannah is a lovingly created, elegant atmosphere for your wedding ceremony or for renewing your wedding vows. Our venue includes a private garden with fountain, decorated archway, grape arbor, and beautifully landscaped grounds with pond. Located in the Beaulieu Plantation Historic District, it reflects the old southern charm of Savannah.

The Whitefield Chapel......
Built in 1740 by Rev. George Whitefield, founder of Bethesda Boys Home, the Whitefield Chapel is a beautiful brick chapel with tall, arched windows, stained glass altar, center aisle, original wooden pews and brick flooring. The chapel sets on picturesque acreage with majestic live oak trees draped in Spanish moss.
Historic Savannah Squares. Savannah has America's largest historic district which includes 23 squares filled with beautiful azaleas and magnificent live oak trees creating a canopy of shade. The city seduces in subtle shadows of green, gray, and blooms of pink azaleas. In the center of many of the squares is a lovely fountain or a historic monument. It has been said that the history of the squares is the history of Savannah. The squares are very popular for weddings. They are surrounded by historic buildings and Victorian homes. Savannah was created around her squares.

The Davenport House Garden. The garden was created in 1976 as a project of the Trustees Garden Club. It is built in the traditional formal English garden style surrounded by a brick privacy wall and has a private entrance. The Davenport House is a working museum and offers tours and a gift shop. The garden is available for weddings seven days a week after 5:00 p.m., February through September.

Forsyth Park and Fountain Savannah, GA.City of romance, called the Hostess City of the south. Georgia's "First City" defines Southern elegance, charm, and style. Savannah celebrates its beauty, diversity, mystery, cuisine, intimate gardens, and scenic squares with live oak trees. Winters are usually mild, and in spring, the azaleas and dogwood blooms create a lovely, romantic paradise. The historic city has been the inspiration for art, song, and film for generations.

Tybee Island BeachTybee means "salt" to Native Americans, but the name of this low-key seaside resort now could be romantic getaway. This small barrier island boasts a wide, 3-mile long beach that is backed by sea oat-covered sand dunes and is perfect for your seaside wedding ceremony. The island's south-end has a pier and pavilion. The North Beach has the spectacular Tybee Island Lighthouse, one of the few operational lighthouses in the country.

A low country boil is the perfect wedding reception menu for a Savannah wedding!
