My husband and I chose 10 Downing as our ceremony and reception venue for our November 17th wedding. We wanted a smaller and more intimate wedding, and the moment we met Mark and saw 10 Downing in person, we knew this was the place for us. Mark and Meg Royston have wedding planning down to a science. Mark was able to help my husband and me plan the wedding to the smallest detail via email, as my husband and I live in Florida and not Savannah. Not only was he extremely quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had, he was also extremely thorough with wedding planning questions and thought of every little detail to make sure he was prepared to make our wedding day perfect. I was a bit nervous planning my wedding while living in another state, but with Mark's help I had no concerns whatsoever when the wedding day arrived. Mark and Meg were there every step of the way, from rehearsal and food preparation to making sure that the decorations were exactly how we wanted them for the dinner. I cannot imagine trying to plan my wedding without their help, and I can honestly say that my wedding was even better than I had ever imagined. It was absolute perfection, and I cannot thank Mark, Meg, and 10 Downing enough for our wonderful day. I would absolutely recommend 10 Downing to anyone who asked!!

My wife and I got married here last week and we could not be happier. Mark and his team are by far the best thing that could’ve happened to this wedding. Mark was so professional and helpful, we could not have done it without him. My wife and I joke how most weddings are plagued with issues and we experienced none of that. Mark is so thorough that he approached us with questions that we didn’t even realize we needed to ask. The venue is gorgeous and very affordable but I’d pay three times as much just for Mark’s help. If you’re on the fence I hope that reviews like this can help you make the decision to enjoy this venue as much as we did and to have the pleasure of working with Mark for your special day.

The perfect place
The venue is gorgeous and was perfect for our ceremony and reception. The owners are so easy to work with and made the whole process as simple as possible, which helped reduce the stress of the big day. We wanted to keep costs as low as possible while still having our perfect day. Holding the ceremony and reception here made that a possibility. We chose to do a seated dinner (app/salad/entree/dessert) and the food we chose was delicious! We're still getting compliments from our guests about it and I am positive that no guest left hungry. They were also more than happy to box our meals and allow us to pick them up the next day when we picked up the remaining decor.
Our DJ's have played there many times, the Venue is great and Mark is good to work with, always makes sure everything is perfect
10 Downing are wonderful to always work with! A great venue to have your reception!
