If you're looking for a little something different in your Downtown Savannah wedding venue, then we suggest you consider the Georgia State Railroad Museum - it's killer! Brides + Groom's love the rustic backdrop, exposed brick, historic railcars, rolling stock and unique ceremony locations. From the Tender Frame Shop to the Machine Shop and our favorite, the Blacksmith Shop, we're certain there is something for everyone at The Georgia State Railroad Museum!
8. AMERICAN LEGION POST 135
We were first introduced to The American Legion Post 135 Ballroom thanks to Grace + John's Savannah wedding by Alexis Sweet Photography and we're immediately smitten with the spacious ballroom. Just steps from Forsyth Park, Post 135 boasts a spacious ballroom to accommodate up to 300 guests, a full service bar and awesome the stage - perfect for your favorite band! We love how the high ceilings and hardwood floors allow couples a blank canvas as they design their Georgia wedding day.
9. WORMSLOE PLANTATION HISTORIC SITE
We first fell in love with Wormsloe Plantation in Volume 1 of A Lowcountry Wedding Magazine where Ashley Seawell Photography teamed up for a romantic afternoon under the oaks in Wormsloe Wanderlust. We were immediately swept off of our feet by the natural setting and knew it would be a dreamy spot for an outdoor ceremony. The Plantation, the oldest in Savannah, was established by one of Georgia's earliest settlers and boasts an sublime entrance lined with magical oak trees, so it's no surprise it's one of the most photographed sites in all of Savannah and a memorable way to experience the Lowcountry on your wedding day.
10. SHIPS OF THE SEA MUSEUM
Our first introduction the The Ships of the Sea Museum was thanks to the ladies of Posh Petals & Pearls. They planned and designed Amy + Zach's October affair and it highlighted everything we've come to love about The Ships of the Sea Museum. From March to June and September to December, The Downtown Savannah location offers an open-air covered reception venue for more than 300 guests and the romantic Scarbrough Garden for an outdoor ceremony.
11. SAVANNAH STATION
High ceilings, exposed beams, romantic chandeliers and a Victorian-inspired parlour area... what's not to love about Savannah Station? Located on Cohen Street, the historic setting offers a 6,000 square foot ballroom (which allows for plenty of dancing and upwards of 400 guests) with a neutral color palette to allow you to leave your own mark on your reception. Our favorite part - the ornate bar! We love how Dawn + John utilized the space at their Savannah Station wedding.
12. SAVANNAH YACHT CLUB
Tucked away on Savannah's Wilmington River on Whitemarsh Island, Savannah Yacht Club boasts enviable waterfront views ideal for an outdoor ceremony, just like at Lindsey + Justin's Savannah Yacht club wedding!
