· When can we arrive at The Kehoe House?
Check-in is at 3 pm. Should you arrive in Savannah earlier, feel free to stop by and see if we can accommodate an earlier check-in. It's possible, especially for a mid-week elopement getaway, that we may be able to allow you to check in a little early.
· Can our ceremony take place in Columbia Square, located directly in front of The Kehoe House?
The square is managed by the City of Savannah's Leisure Services Department. You must contact them directly to rent the square. You can reach them at (912) 351-3837.
· May we have friends and family attend our ceremony?
The Kehoe House welcomes up to six people, including the bride and groom, to participate in your special day. If you'd like to invite more attendees, guests in excess of six will need to be registered guests at The Kehoe House. Please be mindful that our music room, our parlor and our verandah are not spacious enough to warmly embrace a large crowd without some preparation, and that our Elopement Package is designed for more personal ceremonies. If you would like to host a larger wedding party at The Kehoe House, we invite you to visit our Wedding Page or call and ask our Staff for more details.
· What about photography?
Because of the special relationship between a photographer and the eloping couple, The Kehoe House welcomes any photographer of your choosing. We are happy to provide a list of photographers who have delighted previous couples, such as Savannah Photos.
· Do any recommended hair dressers and make-up artists come to The Kehoe House?
Absolutely! We have a list of experts who often come to The Kehoe House to help brides prepare for their special day. We'll be glad to give you suggestions for that important part of your day.
· What if the Mercer Room, The Kehoe House's most popular room for elopements, is booked?
The Mercer Room is our most requested room, and while it is an excellent room --- with two verandahs overlooking Columbia Square and a beautiful design --- it's not the only spectacular room in the house. Our second most requested room is the Oglethorpe Room, which is located on the top floor overlooking Columbia Square with a private verandah. All of our Luxury King Rooms are romantic and memorable --- most have large windows with ample natural light for getting ready with makeup and photos, and all have verandah access.
· What if I want something other than roses for my bouquet?
Our brides rave about the simple, stylish bouquets of roses. But, if you'd prefer something different, we will happily put you in touch with the florist who can make the bouquet of your dreams.
· What about dinner after the ceremony?
It would be our pleasure to make priority reservations for you at one of Savannah's many romantic restaurants. Just ask the concierge when making your plans and we'll make sure the restaurant knows it's your wedding day!
· What else do I need to do?
You must obtain a marriage license! You will need to contact Chatham County Probate Court at 133 Montgomery Street. Phone: 912-652-7267
