Are you looking for the perfect venue to have an intimate wedding in Savannah, Georgia? From romantic green spaces and historic homes, this charming Southern city has something to offer to everyone. This blog post will guide you through a handful of historic venues perfect for intimate weddings.

Hidden Gem Venues for Intimate Savannah Weddings

Forsyth Park

Unquestionably, one of my favorite spots in Savannah is Forsyth Park. Besides the gorgeous fountain, it boasts 30 acres of lush foliage and beautiful scenery, picturesque for smaller ceremonies or first-look photos.

Looking for something more private so passersby don't spy on your moment. The historic district of Savannah offers many unique private venues for intimate weddings.

Armstrong Kessler Mansion

One of my favorites is The Armstrong Kessler Mansion. It's a registered National Landmark. This stunning venue is located next to the iconic Forsyth Park and fountain. Built around 1918, the gated mansion is an impressive example of Italian Renaissance Revival architecture and décor. You could even hold your ceremony in the nearby park and your reception al fresco in the lavish gardens of the Kessler Mansion.

This jaw-dropping venue is so glam! Thus making it a superb choice for the couple who wants to show their guests what luxury entails!

The Armstrong Kessler mansion welcomes only a limited number of private events each year, making it uber-exclusive. Because this is a private residence, all receptions are held outside in the manicured gardens. However, tents may be set up for an extra level of privacy.

Harper Fowlkes House

An alternate option is the historic Harper Fowlkes House. Built in 1842 in the Greek Revival style, this beautiful home is furnished with period antiques from the original owner. When she passed, Alida Harper Fowlkes, stipulated that the house be preserved so that future generations could view what life was like in the mid-1800s.

The Harper Fowlkes House has a large private courtyard garden with a fountain for ceremonies and receptions. Meanwhile, smaller events are allowed inside the historic house.

Regardless of your vision for your wedding, this stunning city has something to offer everyone looking for a unique spot to exchange vows!
