Anna and Dane’s Savannah Georgia wedding was an exquisitely orchestrated multiday event filled with southern charm, cordiality and history. Family and friends arranged events at several of Savannah’s historic and cultural landmarks to build up excitement and celebrate Anna and Dane before the big day.
On Thursday evening, set amongst Savannah’s moss-laden trees, out-of-town guests were welcomed to historic Savannah at a party held in Madison Square. Surrounded by homes built in the 1800s, friends and family cheerfully reconnected or met for the first time over dinner and drinks.
On Friday, several ladies met for a bridal brunch at The Oglethorpe Club while the gentleman played 18 holes at The Savannah Golf Club. Both golfing and the brunch were just a warm-up to the evening’s rehearsal dinner and dancing at the prestigious Chatham Club in The DeSoto Hilton overlooking the Savannah River and the historic district.
On Saturday, the bride and her party prepared at the appropriately named, Wedding Cake Mansion, an elaborate structure with white bay windows, stained glass and ornamental ironwork. Dane and Anna had a “first look” at the mansion before their heading to The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, one of Savannah’s oldest cathedrals with a history dating back to the 1700s, by trolley. After the ceremony, the festivities returned to The Savannah Golf Club for dinner, cocktails and a whole lot of dancing to celebrate Anna and Dane’s newlywed status.
