THIS IS THE PERFECT VENUE! Sara and her team worked with us to make our day perfect. It's a beautiful building in the center of downtown Savannah. Reasonably priced but the best part by far was the staff. They are flexible, easy to work with, and beyond accommodating. I would suggest Sara and her team at Bryson to anyone!!!

I photographed a wedding at Bryson Hall last year. The day went so smooth, even in the midst of a storm outside. The spacious hall provided plenty of room for the ceremony, dinner and reception. The staff was most accommodating and pleasant to work with.
Bryson Hall is beautiful and Sara and hee staff are amazing. She is incredible at what she does and is great to work with.
Bryson Hall is a great venue that allows you to have you Ceremony and Reception in one location but you feel like it is actually in 2 locations! The staff at Bryson Hall is easy to work with and enjoy every chance we get to work with them!
