Chippewa Square

Located in the heart of it all, Chippewa Square is a staple of Savannah. Forrest Gump famously waited for the bus here and some of the city’s most well known attractions are just steps from the square, including the Savannah Theatre and Bull Street. Brick paths wind through the property from the square’s center, where a beautiful statue of General James Oglethorpe stands.

Pulaski Square

One of the city’s newer squares, Pulaski Square is where old town charm meets urban forest. Tall, mossy trees tower above wide brick paths bordered by ivy and greenery. The square is a gorgeous ceremony setting close to many of the main attractions in the historic district.

Forsyth Park

This breathtaking park occupies 30 acres in the center of Savannah. One of the most iconic attractions of Savannah is the large fountain at the north end of the park, which has been standing since 1858. The path leading to the fountain is lined with giant oak trees, naturally decorated with Spanish moss. The park is bursting with southern charm and elegant romance.

Troup Square

Troup Square is one of the smaller squares in Savannah and is home to some of the most interesting art in all of the city’s squares. The Armillary Sphere monument, a replica of an armillary sphere held up by six tortoises, stands in the center of a circular brick platform. It’s a quiet square with plenty of pretty places to exchange vows and take photos.

Cumberland Island National Seashore

Georgia’s largest and southernmost barrier island, Cumberland Island National Seashore is nothing short of paradise. The pristine island features maritime forests, salt marshes, undeveloped sand beaches, and more than 9,800 acres of designated wilderness. The island is only accessible by boat and has a ferry that runs to and from the island three times a day. On the island there is a beach gazebo, a pier, and the Greyfield Inn, which offers overnight lodging with historic southern charm.

The National Park Service maintains the island and requires a wedding permit for all weddings and commitment ceremonies on the premises. Ceremonies must be scheduled in the same calendar year and no less than 10 working days prior to the ceremony.

Tybee Island

Tybee Island is located 20 minutes from downtown Savannah is Georgia’s beach wedding destination. Tybee Island is rich with romantic coastal charm. Savannah Beach is a gorgeous ceremony site thanks to clean, sandy beaches that stretch along the island’s easterns shore. One of the island’s most famous attributes and well-known wedding locations is Tybee Island lighthouse, which is the oldest and tallest lighthouse in the state.

Wormsloe is a historic site and one of the most breathtaking photo locations in all of Savannah. Just beyond the gates, a mile-long archway of massive oak trees line the road leading to the historic estate. The property was once the colonial estate of carpenter Noble Jones and is the oldest standing structure in Savannah. Beyond the estate, trails wind through the surrounding woods with paths bordering its edging, offering amazing views of the Isle of Hope. The property does require some permits for weddings, which your Simply Eloped team will help navigate.
