In September, as the days grow shorter and the air gets crisper, it begins to feel like fall in Savannah. This September day, in particular, was perfect for a small and intimate wedding in the heart of the Savannah Historic District. Kellie and Bill’s floral fall wedding took place at the elegant Mansion on Forsyth Park, and the day was absolutely beautiful!
Floral Fall Wedding Design
The floral design for this downtown Savannah wedding was inspired by traditional and classic southern elements with pops of Fall colors like burgundy.
Kellie’s floral fall wedding bouquet consisted of dusty pink astilbe, white campanula, roses, ranunculus, and burgundy dahlias. Her bridal bouquet was the perfect combination of soft tones with bold pops of color and texture.
Lush floral fall wedding arrangements, which sat in ceramic vases, lined the aisle during the ceremony. Our team also installed a beautiful display at the altar above the couple with dusty pink and white roses and lots of eucalyptus.

The Mansion on Forsyth Park was the perfect backdrop for this intimate celebration. The ceremony took place in the stunning marble garden courtyard where our couple exchanged their vows. Friends and family gathered under the elegant tent where lush greenery on the walls of the Mansion complimented the wedding design. Upstairs in the art gallery, guests met Kellie and Bill for their reception. Filled with lots of character and charm, the galleries are a unique option for your reception at the Mansion.
If you are looking for a unique Savannah wedding venue for your destination wedding, The Mansion on Forsyth Park will provide your guests with a truly unique experience. It was the perfect location for this floral fall wedding, which had a classic southern feel.

After three postponements due to the pandemic, it was an absolute joy to finally celebrate Kelley + Watts Sea Island wedding. The couple welcomed family and friends to their destination wedding in Georgia with a weekend of wedding activities. The wedding weekend began with a relaxed wedding welcome party with a tropical atmosphere and ended with the joy of Kelley + and Watts celebrating their marriage with out-of-town guests.
Classic White Floral Design
Our bride, Kelley, had a vision of all-white florals with a dash of tropical elements on her Sea Island wedding day. So, the Gray Harper team created a floral design with lush white blooms and lots of greenery. For the bridal party, we blended ferns and orchids with all white flowers to create green and white wedding bouquets. The bridesmaids and bridal bouquets were filled with texture-rich white blooms like Stock flowers, Hellebore, Phalaenopsis Orchids and Anthurium. While the groom’s and groomsmen’s boutonnieres were made with white mini Cymbidium Orchids.
Tropical Floral Details At Sea Island Wedding
Kellie Ryan Designs did a wonderful job at designing the reception space to highlight the bride and groom’s all-white and tropical floral vision. Centrepieces and floral arrangements included a variety of textured white blooms like anthuriums, canterbury bells, orchid stems, and orchid plants. Palm leaves and ferns were used to bring the tropical elements of the design to life.
Guest tables were draped with crisp white linens and topped with greenery runners, white blooms, french gray-coloured pillar candles, and votives. The chandeliers were draped with lush greenery, which provided an element of depth to the reception space.
One of the most memorable features of this Sea Island wedding reception was the two breathtaking floral arrangements that wrapped the pillars of the entrance. These installations welcomed guests as they entered the space and were the perfect pieces to set the tone for the evening.
As florists, we love to create unique and stunning personalized designs for each of our couples! When designing the florals for Kelley + Watts Sea Island wedding, we wanted to bring the bride’s all-white floral and tropical vision to life in every floral element possible. Each detail was thoughtfully chosen and incorporated into the design, from the moment guests arrived and saw the statement floral installation to the bridesmaids all white tropical-inspired bouquets. If you are dreaming of a destination wedding in Georgia, we would love to work with you! We love bringing our couple’s unique visions to life through the beauty of flowers!

Last March, we had the honor to work with Kathryn and Jeffrey on their floral design for their destination wedding in Georgia. We worked with the couple to design their florals for their welcome reception, wedding ceremony, and wedding reception.
When choosing a Georgia wedding venue, having a beautiful garden setting was essential to Kathryn and Jeffrey. So, the two decided on the Jekyll Island Club Resort, a historic wedding venue on the Georgian coast. With a picturesque Southern setting, this quaint little island is the perfect place for a destination wedding in Georgia.
Behind The Wedding Design
During our initial consultation, Kathryn shared that she wanted a floral design with mainly white blooms that incorporate pops of subtle blue and soft blush flowers. In addition, it was important that her wedding flowers complimented the lovely garden setting of Crane Cottage and its immaculately landscaped sunken gardens.
Kathryn’s family had a special sentiment to the blue Irises. So, a special mother’s bouquet was created for Kathryn’s mom that incorporated this important family flower.
With the wedding boom in full swing, we knew some challenges would be upon us. What was unexpected was that these challenges would come so early into the year. Many florists and designers have had to navigate flower shortages and floral shipping delays; this wedding was our first experience managing these floral shipping delays. Kathryn’s flowers were actually stuck in Tennessee for two days before we could get our hands on them. Thankfully our amazing Gray Harper team jumped in as soon as their flowers arrived to help bring this beautiful floral design to life!
The Wedding Ceremony
Kathryn and Jeffery got to enjoy a magical outdoor wedding ceremony in the sunken gardens of Crane Cottage. Part of their wedding and floral design was to continue celebrations at an outdoor reception on the lawn. Unfortunately, due to unpredictable weather, we had to make a rain call earlier in the day. So, we decided to move the reception indoors to the Jekyll Island Club Resort’s ballroom. As unlucky as this change in plans was, our couples indoor wedding reception turned out beautifully, thanks to an incredible vendor team.
Kathryn’s bridal bouquet included the most stunning combination of white blooms with pops of soft blush Ranunculus. Her bridesmaids held smaller bouquets that complemented this lush bridal bouquet. Each bridesmaid bouquet included petite dusty blue florals along with soft blue and pink ribbons that complimented their dusty blue bridesmaid dresses. One of our favorite design elements of this wedding was the paper cones filled with white rose petals. Kathryn and Jeffery had their guests throw rose pedals during their processional, and it was absolutely magical!
The Wedding Reception
Long wooden tables were set up under a magical array of twinkling lights and subtle greenery inside the ballroom. Dusty blue accents were sprinkled throughout the reception design with the inclusion of blue napkins, blue water goblets, and light blue Tweedia flowers in the centerpieces. While soft pink florals were highlighted on the wedding cake and added to the centerpieces. From votives to vases, delicate accents of gold complimented each table, while the guest place settings were finished with individual sprigs of olive.
Even though our couples wedding had a few minor bumps along the way, we are so pleased to see how this floral design came together. The combination of subtle blue, soft blush, and classy white blooms brought this wedding to life. We love working with couples to bring their floral design visions to life and incorporating special touches along the way. So be sure to reach out and start your wedding design process with us!
