While Savannah has some beautiful venues for large weddings, it is also the perfect spot to elope or have an intimate wedding! Alexa and Brad wanted a small wedding in Downtown Savannah for their closest family and friends. They worked with Ivory & Beau (who we love working with!) to plan and design their affair. No matter the size of your wedding, hiring a wedding planner will make everything so much easier.
The couple wanted a garden space where guests could dine on the lawn and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. They chose Davenport House, one of Savannah’s best spots for intimate weddings! The garden features local blooms like azaleas and jasmine and is quiet and peaceful.
The ceremony took place on the lawn with our Chestnut X-Back Chairs. These wooden chairs are perfect for outdoor events since the natural brown goes well with the greenery of Downtown. Dozens of hurricane vases were placed around the aisle for a soft glow, and scattered blooms added a touch of color.
As guests entered the reception space, they were greeted with a wooden table covered in daily photos, celebrating the two families coming together as one. Our wooden tables, which come in both Sweetheart Size and Large, can be mixed and matched for various layouts. The couple wanted guests to dine under the stars in the garden, so our Farm Tables were placed throughout the lawn, creating intimate spaces for everyone to enjoy. It was truly a garden party!
They used the Laverne + Shirley Chairs for the Head Table as their seating since they make for perfect Sweetheart table chairs. The soft cream and gold paired well with the gold accents used throughout the decor. They chose our matte black plates for dining with our modern gold flatware, and each seat had patterned napkins. It created a contemporary but still organic setting.
But of course, a garden-inspired wedding needs to have plenty of flowers! Ivory & Beau created a beautiful palette of neutrals mixed with bright red, peach, orange, and pops of blue. The reception tables had dozens of hurricane candles and large garlands filled with fresh blooms for a touch of color. We love how it all came together and how Halle Morgan Photography captured it all.
