The Gingerbread House, built in 1899, is an excellent example of Steamboat Gothic architecture. It is known for the gingerbread arches that are featured predominantly on the exterior of the building. It is one of the most famous homes in the Historic District of Savannah, Georgia - and for good reason. People come from across the country to host events at this picturesque event venue.

My wedding was PERFECT!
I booked our wedding at the Gingerbread House before the Sarah/Michelle switch over. I was initially concerned because I read the past reviews about lack of response from Sarah….but sometime in the beginning of 2021, Michelle had taken over as coordinator and she was absolutely amazing! I am very type-A and need to be on top of everything and plan ahead, etc. Michelle was excellent at keeping me updated on everything she was doing, communicating with me, and answered my questions pretty much immediately. When it came down to it, I wasn’t stressed at all because I had no doubt in my mind that everything would be perfect….and IT WAS! From my cake, to my flowers, to the venue and the ceremony - I could not have asked for a better venue or coordinator. It was easy and beautiful! If you read past reviews, don’t let that get in the way of choosing this beautiful venue! I didn’t really work with the past coordinator, but I can tell you that Michelle is the best and will make your day AMAZING! ♥️Sent on 05/15/2021

Everything was Perfect!
Thank you so very much to The Gingerbread House for hosting our wedding this weekend. Our 80 guests were blown away! Sarah was great to work with- and on the day of Amanda took charge of every detail and executed everything perfectly. If I would have asked her for a pink glitter pony minutes before the ceremony, you would have seen one prancing down the aisle and I would never be the wiser of how hard it was to get! We basically ended up having the run of the house for the entire weekend, which made everything so much easier and less stressful! Our guests raved about the food, which was a special vegetarian menu they made to accommodate us. The DJ was great for both the ceremony and reception. Everything ran smoothly and on time, and everyone had a great time in this beautiful old house. Thank you!Sent on 04/03/2019
