A little bit about the three locations you will be shooting:


Built-in 1919 by George Ferguson Armstrong and designed by world-renowned Beaux-Arts architect Henrik Wallin, the original Armstrong Mansion is the only Italian Renaissance Revival home in Savannah listed in the authoritative A Field Guide to American Houses. A registered National Landmark, the mansion has served many purposes. From a private residence to the Armstrong Memorial Junior College and most recently home to a law firm, it is now coming full circle as a residence for prominent art patron, entrepreneur, and luxury hotelier Richard C. Kessler. The house is available for a limited number of exclusive, private events.

Built-in 1842 in the classical Greek Revival style, the House boasts a beautiful collection of antiques and a generously sized garden. The House is the perfect find for couples looking for that historical romance for a backdrop. The venue is one of Savannah’s most popular locations for a ceremony, reception, or bridal photo shoot.
