About The Whitman Savannah

The Whitman Savannah, located in Savannah, Georgia’s historic district, is a mansion venue available for wedding-related events. Overlooking Forsyth Park, the 5,000-square-foot mansion provides welcoming wedding party accommodations in addition to an elegant, city venue for a ceremony and reception.

The property is covered by liability insurance, and can be rented for wedding ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers, engagement parties, and vow renewals, among other event options.

    Booking The Whitman for our wedding was one of the best decisions I made. The house was so beautiful and charming and created the perfect environment for us and our guests for our wedding weekend. Bob Vardzel went above and beyond our entire stay. We got married in the courtyard, had a cocktail hour on the first floor of the house and then the reception in the courtyard. Thanks to him and his staff everything went smoothly on our wedding day and I cannot thank him enough for that. Our guests also raved about our food at the reception!

    We can not say enough about our wedding at the Whitman. Bob made preparing and planning very easy, he was quick to respond to any of our questions which made making decisions very easy. He was flexible and extremely accommodating. Every detail of the house is incredible. Plenty of space for everyone (we had 14 people sleeping there) and the kitchen was to die for! Bob came in the day of the wedding, started cooking and prepping....he had everything ready, his team was like a perfectly oiled machine. The food was amazing (the salmon is the very best we have ever had)!! His team cleaned up at the end of the night and by the time we went to bed, the house was back to it's pre-wedding state. They were truly amazing. We enjoyed our time at the Whitman so much! You will not be disappointed!
