Featured Ceremony Venue – Wormsloe Plantation – Savannah Wedding Coordinator

Bryan & Karyn Fox

We have been your go-to source for all things Savannah, and now also, your go-to source to book Wormsloe for intimate weddings! You will not be able to reserve this location on your own. One of the great perks of hiring us, is access to locations that do not work directly with the general public.

Wormsloe Plantation is a beautiful, quintessentially Savannah location. Beautiful live oak trees, dripping in Spanish Moss cover this destination. It is a photographers dream, with so many opportune spots for dreamy photos! This venue can be reserved through us Tuesdays through Fridays, for ceremonies anytime before the plantation closes at 5:30pm.

Wormsloe Plantation is formally known as Wormsloe Historic Site, and was established by one of Georgia’s original colonial founders in the 1700s. It is situated 11 miles southeast of downtown Savannah on Isle of Hope. The iconic arched entranceway is a beautiful location for wedding photos. The plantation is rich in history, and the property still boasts many of the original details, such as a tabby fort built in 1745, and many of the trees date back to before the settlers came. There is now replica buildings from that time period, as well as colonial life demonstrations, a museum, and walking trails through the dense maritime forests.

If this isn’t the ideal ceremony location for your personal taste, but you are planning a destination wedding and searching for things to do for you and your guests, this is still a beautiful location to check out. Guided tours and group rates are available.

Chippewa Square – Featured Ceremony Venue – Savannah Wedding Planner

IMG_8017Is Forrest Gump one of your favorite films? Do you love Live Oak trees dripping in Spanish Moss? Are you a history or theater buff? Chippewa Square could be your perfect ceremony location!
Chippewa Square is most well-known for the “Life is like a box of chocolates” bus-stop scene from Forrest Gump. It is easy to see why producers chose this location, for the beautiful trees, and quintessential Savannah southern charm.

This square is rich in history as well, from the center statue of General James Ogelthorpe, who founded the colony of Georgia in 1733, to the Battle of Chippewa during the War of 1812, where this square received it’s namesake.

This square was also the center of Savannah’s nightlife, and still is home to the Savannah Theatre, which is the oldest theatre in IMG_8142America still operating at it’s original location. You can catch a live show at the theatre during your trip and take a photo in front of the iconic marquee. You can even get your names in lights on the marquee. Ask us how!

A great reception venue is also located right off of the square, Bryson Hall. Maybe this is the perfect location for you!

This week’s featured venue is Bryson Hall, located in the heart of the historic district on Chippewa Square. The T.A. Bryson building was used as an automobile dealership in the early 1900s. The art deco style is accentuated by the original tin ceilings, grand staircase, and floor to ceiling windows with views of the square. Bryson Hall also has bridal dressing rooms, a huge dance floor and a large catering kitchen.

Bryson Hall is one of the more affordable venues to rent out for your wedding or event, without losing any of the beauty and charming architectural details.

If you have a particular caterer in mind, all licensed caterers are welcome at Bryson Hall. If you do not have a caterer, let us help you choose the best one from our list of preferred vendors that we know and trust.

Wanting an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception? Chippewa Square and Bryson Hall may be the perfect combination for you. Contact us in order to take a tour of both!
