Real Wedding | A Modern Nautical Savannah Yacht Club Wedding

Savannah Yacht Club Wedding Ceremony

As Savannah natives, Katherine and Keifer were fairly familiar with what they had envisioned for their Savannah Yacht Club wedding. They had dreamed of a modern nautical wedding design to reflect the groom's career on the water as a tug boat captain.

Savannah Yacht Club Wedding  

The Savannah Yacht Club was the perfect Savannah wedding venue for this nautical-themed wedding. Our couple said their vows in front of the Wilmington River underneath a beautiful Southern Live Oak tree. After their riverfront wedding ceremony, the couple and their guests headed to the main clubhouse for a nautical-infused modern wedding reception. One of our favorite features of the Savannah Yacht Club clubhouse is the beautiful outdoor covered and indoor space available for your guests.

On The Day

On the wedding day, mother nature threw us a few curve balls. The weather in Savannah was sweltering during setup while dark and stormy clouds rolled in, just in time for the ceremony. Thankfully Katherine and Keifer were the best couple to work with in this situation, and they gracefully decided to let the rain and gusty winds pass before starting the ceremony. They were a perfect example that it is not always in the guest's best interest to start the ceremony on time. Once the storm had passed, our couple and their guests enjoyed a perfect southern spring wedding. 

A Modern Nautical Wedding Design

We fused subtle maritime elements with modern and timeless decor for this modern nautical wedding design. The team at Gray Harper Florals chose crisp white blooms and paired them with tropical foliage throughout the two spaces. We incorporated shells into the bud vase centerpieces to truly transform this modern nautical design. Two floral chandeliers with tropical greenery hung above as a key focal point in both the outdoor and indoor reception space. To highlight the modern elements of this design, we intertwined gold and plexiglass features into the decor, including a gold and glass bar tables with plexiglass bar stools and gold pillars that held the tall tropical centerpieces.

It was an absolute joy to work with such a lovely couple for their Savannah Yacht Club wedding. Our team had fun creating this modern nautical design come to life in this beautiful southern wedding venue. If you need help finding the perfect wedding venue to match your dream wedding design, we'd love to help you!
