Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This National Historic Landmark building is the South's oldest public art museum. Its stunning 1883 architecture and world-class art collections create an elegant ambiance for your Savannah wedding with period-style rooms, high ceilings, and rows of classic white columns.
  • The romantic three-story Rotunda is truly special, with a glass grid ceiling, dark wood floors, and a display of old-master paintings hung on the walls. For a more intimate event, explore the Octagon Room or Drawing Room, each with its own charms.
  • Their Sculpture Gallery evokes a 19th-century European salon. This exclusive setting lets your guests dine and dance amidst classic beauty, surrounded by replicas of Greek and Roman statues as well as dramatic murals.
