Garden Ceremonies: Harvey Designs, Event and Floral Design, Savannah Georgia

The temperate climate of Savannah spring, fall and winter (notice, I didn’t mention summer) produces some of the lushest and greenest gardens in the south. It is only sensible then to take what nature (with the help of a savvy gardener) has perfected and use it to your advantage.

This otherwise subdued pathway is completely transformed with the simple addition of lanterns suspended from shepherd’s hooks with beautiful burnt orange ribbons.

This lawn is made to feel like a sumptuous garden with the use of bright sunshine dahlias and blue hydrangeas in the pew markers and vases of floating candles and yellow rose petals along the aisle.

This beautiful, shady square is brought to life with this amazing chuppah; constructed of willow, two shades of pink gerbera daisies, pink hydrangea, pink cymbidium orchids and white dendrobium orchids.

When the garden where you plan to marry is as elegant as the garden at the Owens-Thomas House, the decor should compliment, not detract, from the environmental beauty. The use of pale peonies and hydrangeas, as well as magnolia greenery, to draw attention to the ceremony site only helped add to the lushness of this already magnificent garden.
