A Savannah GA Wedding Weekend to Remember

Savannah Villas 109 West House was honored to be a part of a beautiful Savannah GA wedding this past May. The wedding was a full weekend event, May 3-6, 2012. We are very thankful to Juliet Castovinci and Jason Dejelo for sharing the experiences and recommendations from their romantic Savannah wedding.*

Juliet and Jason fell in love with Savannah on their first trip together and promised themselves they’d visit again. Two and a half years later, they did. It was on that return trip that Jason proposed and Juliet happily accepted. With such beautiful memories of their romantic trips here, it was a natural choice to have a destination wedding in Savannah.

And so the planning began. Alysse at Morgan Gallo Events had done a great job of helping Jason with his proposal. It made perfect sense to work with Alysse again as their Savannah wedding event planner. With her guidance, they selected vendors and venues for their wedding, including Savannah Villas at 109 West. Alysse helped them through the whole process to make sure everything ran smoothly. As a result, the couple didn’t have to deal with any set up, clean up or other miscellaneous details on their wedding day.

For the entertainment of their guests, they organized a tour with Oglethorpe Trolley Tours. Conveniently, Oglethorpe was also able to provide guest transportation to the ceremony and reception.

On Friday night, the rehearsal dinner was held at Soho South, an open, light and artsy café conveniently located caddy corner from 109 West House.

The Saturday ceremony took place at the bandshell at Forsyth Park where Jason had proposed. Reverend Stephen Williams did a wonderful job officiating the wedding. The sweet elegance of the occasion was perfectly accompanied by wedding music performed by an outstanding harp and violin duo from the New Arts Ensemble.

Afterwards, there was excellent food and service at both the cocktail hour in Reynolds Square and the reception in the ballroom at The Olde Pink House. The Equinox Jazz Orchestra played Jazz and Big Band hits for the evening’s music. This group of professional musicians was not your typical wedding band. They were amazing!

Juliet and Jason decided to go non-traditional with some of the details of the reception. Garden on the Square put together beautiful, unique arrangements that were a mix of fruit and flowers. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, the couple opted for Olde Pink House’s dessert table with pies, ice cream and mini praline bowls. Back in The Day Bakery provided the cookies, brownies, cupcakes and a banana pudding so delicious that Juliet still dreams of it.

Savannah and Tybee Island wedding photographer, Shannon Christopher, did a beautiful job of documenting the day. Creative and fun to work with, he made people feel at ease, took great photos and did a great job of staying on schedule.

As for 109 West House, Juliet and Jason were very happy with their decision to book the mansion for their Savannah wedding weekend. The bridal party stayed there and it was absolutely perfect. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, so everyone had their privacy if they wanted. The thoughtfully appointed luxurious rooms had all the amenities guests needed. Staying in Savannah Villas 109 West made the wedding weekend even more special because everyone could spend time together at the house. Evening gatherings on the patio were enjoyed by all.

On Sunday, they had a brunch for about 40 guests at 109 West. The historic elegance of the inn and the wonderful catering by Thrive made the brunch a perfect closing to a memorable Savannah wedding.

“Helen and Robbie were extremely easy to deal with. It was a pleasure. They run a first-rate business and you can tell they are wonderful people that really want to provide their guests with a positive experience.”
