Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A centuries-old estate, lush gardens, and fascinating exhibits make this museum venue uniquely memorable. Built in 1819 for an early shipping magnate, the Greek Revival mansion, restored in the 1970s, features an impressive portico and copper-roofed belvedere with killer views.
  • You'll love the profusion of seasonal blooms, magnolia, boxwood, and evergreen trees at the largest private gardens in Savannah's historic district. For a verdant, country-park aesthetic, host your ceremony on the red brick terrace, surrounded by manicured hedges.
  • The North Garden's Assembly Room pavilion, with its wood-beam roof, open sides, and state-of-the-art sound and lighting, can easily host a large reception. And don't miss the property's great photo ops, like the classic reflecting pool, double-sided staircase, and fabulous displays of ship models.
