This impeccably-restored Queen Anne-style Victorian mansion in Savannah’s Landmark Historic District recently underwent a $2 million renovation and is quickly earning a reputation as one of the South’s most romantic places to say “I do.” With nearly 5,000 square feet of sumptuous interiors and 600 square feet of porches, The Whitman embodies the best of Savannah, with stunning décor, a spacious courtyard and first-class service to make any wedding day perfect.

From flowers and music to photography and catering, the team at The Whitman ensures that no detail is left undone so the bride and groom can enjoy every moment of their special day.

 “The Whitman is the perfect setting for a Savannah wedding or elopement, with all the charm, style and elegance that make Georgia’s First City such a great wedding destination,” said Buckner. “Our goal was to restore this incredible property to its former splendor and to create a first-class place to tie the knot in Savannah.”

Elopements are a specialty at The Whitman. Couples can say “I do” in comfort and style, surrounded by opulent architectural details. Customized elopement packages are available and can include all the lavish details to make an intimate ceremony perfect.
