Elopements in Savannah, GA

The Setting:

Our parlor is a popular choice for ceremonies. The two of you and your officiant will likely select in front of the mahogany fireplace for an intimate ceremony. But there's also a lovely picture window over-looking our garden courtyard that makes a very nice backdrop for your wedding. It's our beautiful Garden Courtyard, however, that usually is chosen by brides and grooms. No matter which location you select at the inn, you may have your ceremony any day of the week, excluding Saturday. The ceremony time options are between noon and 2:30 in the afternoon (our quiet times at the inn).

A few details to note:

  • While your elopement may truly be a "wedding for two," we understand you may want to invite another couple or a few friends to witness your ceremony. Please be mindful that our garden courtyard and our parlor are not spacious enough to warmly embrace a large crowd without some preparation, and that our Elopement Package is designed for private, personal ceremonies.  If you would like to host a larger wedding party at The Eliza Thompson House, we invite you to visit our wedding page or ask our Staff for more details.
  • We do welcome your wedding photographer, and hope your ceremony at The Eliza Thompson House will become a favorite in their wedding portfolio. We invite your photographer to submit one of the best images for publication here on our website. Need a photographer? We'll be glad to assist with recommendations.
  • To obtain a marriage license, you will need to contact Chatham County Probate Court at 133 Montgomery Street. Phone: 912-652-7167.
  • Carriage rides are a popular ending to an elopement day in Savannah.  We'll be happy to help you arrange one, if you'd like.
