Real Wedding | An Elegant Winter Wedding in Savannah

Winter wedding in Savannah

When Paige and Ryan approached Design Studio South for help with their elegant winter wedding in Savannah, we were thrilled. We worked with the couple from the initial concept of their wedding design to implementation on the day, and it turned out magical.

Georgia State Railroad Museum

Paige and Ryan wanted a unique venue for their winter wedding in Savannah, and the Georgia State Railroad Museum did not disappoint! The museum has five unique spaces to choose from, and our couple opted for their ceremony to take place in the Blacksmith Shop and reception in the Machine Shop. It was so fun designing in a space of the railroad museum that most do not utilize.

Georgia State Railroad Museum is a unique Savannah wedding venue for anyone planning a destination wedding and is hoping to showcase the Savannah Historic District. This historic property provides a beautiful industrial backdrop with tons of exposed brick and industrial beams.

Winter Wedding Design in Savannah 

The bride and groom trusted our team with their wedding design. So, we chose to go with a formal and elegant design with a black-and-white color palette with pops of red. Guests were asked to come in formal attire, while the wedding party rocked long black formal gowns and tuxedos.

The ceremony included an elegant draped backdrop with floral pillars of red and white flowers. It was the perfect setting for this winter wedding in Savannah.

In the reception space, our team set a mixture of champagne and wood tables that were finished with dramatic black charger plates, deep red napkins, and gold cutlery. Gray Harper did an incredible job with the floral centerpieces that tied the look. We incorporated gold details into different design elements, from the wedding cake to decorative shelves. We loved how it elevated the design. One of our favorite details was the breathtaking three-tiered wedding cake that featured a floral decorative layer; it was absolutely stunning! It was a blast having the opportunity to create an elegant design for this winter wedding in Savannah.

Paige and Ryan were so wonderful to work with and were appreciative of our team every step of the way. We are so pleased with how their design turned out and that guests had a blast at their winter wedding in Savannah!
