Real Wedding | Savannah Destination Wedding at Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum

Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum Wedding Reception


We are so excited to finally be able to celebrate and showcase this lovely couple! Grace and Sean's love story was to unfold in the Lowcountry, where they had initially planned their Savannah destination wedding for September 2021. 

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, they were forced to make the difficult decision to postpone their special day. However, a year later, they finally celebrated their love in a stunning garden ceremony at the Scarbrough Garden, located in the enchanting Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. Join us as we dive into the details of their memorable wedding, showcasing the simple yet elegant design that perfectly complemented Savannah's natural beauty.

Simple & Elegant Wedding Design

Grace and Sean's vision for their wedding was rooted in the charm and elegance of a traditional Southern celebration. The couple wanted a wedding design that was simple and elegant and reflected the surrounding gardens. As part of this design, they opted for a wedding color palette of blues, white, and modern gold accents. 

Garden Wedding Ceremony

When exploring venues for Grace and Sean's Savannah destination wedding, the couple fell in love with the William Scarborough House & Gardens in the historic district of Savannah. The couple loved the charm of the house facade and surrounding gardens, so we opted for no ceremony backdrop and used wood cross chairs. As the largest private garden in Savannah, the venue itself boasted an abundance of natural beauty and provided an idyllic setting for Grade and Sean's vows.

Savannah Destination Wedding Reception

The wedding reception took place under the courtyard of the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, where the couple's simple and classic garden wedding vision continued to shine. With a mix of round and long tables, the reception incorporated both tall and low centerpieces adorned with white florals and lush greenery.  

We designed a variety of different table styles to create some visual interest in what would typically be a fairly plain space. Some tables were dressed simply with pillar candles in the perfect blue that matched the blue linen napkins, while others were decorated with dusty blue runners and classic white floral arrangements. Gray Harper Florals incorporated lush greenery almost everywhere in the reception space. From the stage facade to the dancefloor ceiling to the barbacks, it beautifully echoed the garden surroundings of the venue.

Grace and Sean's Savannah destination wedding showcased the city's timeless charm and captured their love in unforgettable moments. Every detail reflected their vision of simplicity and elegance, from the delicate white blooms and greenery arrangements to the intimate ceremony in the Scarbrough Garden.
