    Beautiful destination Wedding Venue

    Best decision to have our wedding in Savannah...And the Whitman was the very first venue I found, it was an instant connection and of course Bob sealed the deal.. his kindness and attention to detail is incredible. Through the whole wedding planning process, Bob was so helpful and made everything run smoothly the whole wedding weekend. His staff were friendly and really made the wedding weekend magical . The food was delicious , being from Texas we know are barbecue and we had a southern bbq buffet at our welcome dinner and the brisket was to die for! The convenience of staying at the Whitman house and having our welcome dinner, ceremony & reception was the best decision. The historic home was a beautiful backdrop for our intimate wedding with family & friends. I will never forget how perfect everything turned out and it is really thanks to Bob and his team! forever grateful

    Best experience ever

    I can’t say enough about Bob and the Whitman. The house is absolutely gorgeous, welcoming, and inviting, and Bob Vardzel is such a huge reason for this. From the moment we inquired about this venue, he was unbelievably responsive and incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the house and the city. He helped with so many planning details from day 1, and when we arrived to triple digit heat, he was flexible and suggested some great alternatives so our guests weren’t baking in the hot sun. The dinner he made (just days after a major surgery- amazing dedication) was literally one of the best meals I’ve ever had. He was friendly and inviting to our guests, and to us. Bob went above and beyond all of our expectations and made sure we had an amazing wedding weekend. Booking the Whitman was the best wedding decision we made, hands down.

    Perfect! The house is gorgeous, well appointed and location across from Forsyth Park lovely.

    I loved staying at The Whitman for six nights the week of my daughter’s wedding.
