Having a wedding at Harper Fowlkes House transports you back to a beautiful time full of art and architecture. This home nestled in Savannah, Georgia was built in 1842. It faces one of Savannah’s many picturesque squares. The views from the courtyard remind you of a European city. I recently joined Southern Bride Magazine as they hosted Styled by Southern Bride, a day of content shoots around the city. This design dreamt up by Stunning and Brilliant Events brought the courtyard to life for an intimate destination wedding. Scroll through the images below to see how the space was transformed.
An intimate reception for your Harper Fowlkes House wedding
The interior of the home is available for your wedding party to use, but it is a historic landmark so there is not much room for partying inside. On this occasion, the courtyard is the perfect spot for a ceremony flip into a beautiful al-fresco dinner under the stars.
Let them eat cake!
As soon as I walked into the space, I was transported to a time of parties filled with opulence. This cake created by Bloom Custom Cakes was a treat that paid homage to the era. Unique details like one-of-a-kind desserts can heighten the guest experience.
Cocktails & details
With this in mind, a welcome drink is a great way to greet guests. This Veuve tower with floral embellishments in each coup tied the Spring theme together.
Classic florals reimagined
Also when planning a wedding at Harper Fowlkes House, it’s exciting to elevate the design from traditional florals to new silhouettes. The designers embellished our groom’s jacket with this lapel floral piece. It was a unique way to bring a wedding at a historic site into this year.
A getaway to remember
Surprisingly, your destination wedding in Savannah can be a getaway for you and your guests. Spend the week here exploring and enjoying the sights and food, take a trolley tour around the city, and experience the arts all over the city. Once your Harper Fowlkes House wedding is over, take off with a unique getaway car from Lowcountry Valet. This stunner is perfect to ride around town with your ride-or-die.
HUGE thanks to the team that put this day together.
