Valentine's Day Weddings in the Davenport House Museum Garden

Celebrate the most romantic day of the year with a brief wedding, vow renewal or commitment ceremony in the Davenport House garden!

The Davenport House Museum, a treasured Historic Savannah Foundation property that was the birthplace of Savannah’s modern-day preservation movement, is delighted to continue its annual tradition of hosting weddings, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies in the garden on Valentine’s Day.

This marks the 17th consecutive year the Davenport House Museum will offer couples a convenient, romantic and economical way to get married in Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District on the most romantic day of the year, while fundraising for the museum. For a $100 donation, couples can reserve the garden space for a brief ceremony.

Every 15 minutes, Sheena Fulkerson, an ordained minister and the Davenport House Museum’s Tour and Wedding Coordinator, will conduct weddings, vow renewals or commitment ceremonies. Couples are welcome to bring up to eight guests and are required to secure a valid marriage license in advance.

In the event of rain, ceremonies will be performed at a suitable location on the property. Couples interested in participating should contact the Davenport House Museum at [email protected] or 912.236.8097 to schedule a time in advance.

The Isaiah Davenport House overlooking Columbia Square was originally built in 1820 and was set to be demolished and turned into a parking lot in 1955 when a group of seven local women united to block the demolition, purchase the property and form the Historic Savannah Foundation. The Davenport House is the winner of the Preserve America Presidential Award, which is the highest national award honoring historic preservation achievement.
