Your Private Savannah Wedding Ceremony and
Carriage Ride at The Kehoe House

The Kehoe House is pleased to offer one of the most intimate and romantic elopement options in Savannah.  And the best part is that we'll take care of the details for you, including the setting, the officiant, the floral arrangements, the cake, the toast, a one-hour private carriage ride, the accommodations, wedding night turn-down service and a full Southern gourmet breakfast. 

Let The Kehoe House help you plan a romantic wedding in Savannah.  You choose the location for your ceremony:  in our elegant parlor, our music room, on our verandah overlooking Columbia Square.  The Kehoe House's attention to fine details will ensure that you both have a perfect day.


Savannah ElopementsThe Accommodations:  
Two  nights in one of our most romantic guest rooms.   Our elopement couples are always given priority at the time of booking when it comes to room type.  Some elopement guest rooms will have balconies, others will have extra space with great lighting --- but you can be assured that only our finest and very favorite guest rooms are reserved for our just-married  couples. 


Kehoe House ElopementThe Ceremony Location and Time:

You have three choices for your elopement ceremony at The Kehoe House.  Our elegant parlor (in front of the fireplace or large picture window); the music room (next to the grand piano), or outside on our gracious verandah overlooking Columbia Square.  At the Kehoe House, you may choose to have your ceremony on any day of the week, between noon and 2:30.  If you select the Music Room or Verandah for your setting, you may also get married between 6:00 and 7:30 pm.

Savannah ElopementsThe Officiant

 The Kehoe House will arrange your choice of a Minister or a Justice of the Peace for your ceremony.  The officiants we use are professional and experienced with elopements in Savannah.  Their genteel nature, warm confidence and expertise with elopements lends a confident, peaceful atmosphere to your ceremony.

Savannah ElopementsThe Cake:   

A delightful, petite  eight-inch wedding cake. Available in various styles with the couple's choice of vanilla, chocolate or red-velvet cake, with vanilla, chocolate, butter cream or cream cheese frosting.  The cake is usually adorned with a rose or two, but you are welcome to bring your own small topper to make it more personal.


Savannah ElopementsThe Floral Arrangement:
A dozen roses in the color of your choice for the Bride, and a coordinating boutonniere for the Groom, provide a simple, yet stylish floral touch to your ceremony.  Color choices are: Pink, Yellow, Red, White, Orange, Peach, Lavender .  The flowers are ordered and delivered to The Kehoe House by a local florist just prior to your ceremony.  They're fresh, beautiful and add a special gracious touch for tradition and elegance.


Savannah ElopementsThe Toast

Popping the top on a chilled bottle of champagne is tradition after an elopement ceremony at The Kehoe House.  A bottle of bubbly and two glass etched champagne flutes adorned with The Kehoe House's logo will be presented along side of your wedding cake.  The flutes are yours to take home as mementos of the occasion.  A second bottle will be placed in your room in the evening along with your romantic turn-down service --- or, you may choose to enjoy your second bottle on your carriage ride.


Savannah ElopementsHorse-Drawn Carriage Ride Through Downtown Savannah

At The Kehoe House, a one-hour Wedding Carriage Ride is included in your package.  After your ceremony, or any time during your visit, we will arrange for a romantic horse drawn carriage ride through our historic district.  This intimate addition can be enjoyed as a tour or you may request that the driver just stroll through the streets.  As a special option, the carriage driver is happy to drop you off at a restaurant or destination of your choice in the historic district.


Savannah ElopementsWedding Night Turn-down Service with Chilled
Champagne and Chocolate-Covered Strawberries:

When you return to your room for the evening --- after dinner or after your carriage ride --- you'll find we've softened the lights and gently straightened your room so that it's perfect for your return.  Chocolate-covered strawberries and a chilled bottle of champagne will be set up in your room for a perfect ending to your wonderful day.


Savannah ElopementsBreakfast in Your Room --- or in our Dining Room
For the ultimate just-wed indulgence, you may request that we serve your breakfast your room.  Or, if you prefer, we'll serve your breakfast in our dining room.  While room service is very romantic, the dining room option is popular for couples who have a few friends or family members staying at the inn for the event.



To Make it Happen:

Please contact The Kehoe House via email: or at 800-820-1020 to reserve the date and to  discuss the details of your elopement.  A few minutes on the phone with our concierge and we'll take all of the worry out of the details so you can simply enjoy the experience of a private Savannah wedding.  Be assured we will  be happy to assist with any additional  arrangements and recommendations. 

A few details to note:

  • The Kehoe House is fortunate to boast Columbia Square in its "front yard".  This lovely square is a great  setting for nice-weather weddings, and is always a popular choice for wedding couples.  If you'd like to have your ceremony in one of the city's squares, the City of Savannah's Leisure Service Director's Office will need to be contacted (912-351-3837).
  • While your elopement may truly be a "wedding for two," many couples like to invite close friends and relatives to witness your ceremony.  You are welcome to do that at The Kehoe House!  But please be mindful that our parlor is not suited for a large crowd, and that our Elopement Package is tailored for personal ceremonies for no more than 6 persons including the Bride and Groom.  If you would like to host a larger wedding party at The Kehoe House, we invite you to visit our wedding page  or ask our Staff for more details about a whole-house wedding event.
  • We do welcome your wedding photographer, and hope your ceremony at The Kehoe House will become a favorite in their wedding portfolio. Visit Savannah Photos, or contact our concierge for more suggestions.
  • To obtain a marriage license, you will need to contact Chatham County Probate Court at 133 Montgomery Street.  Phone:  912-652-7277

Please feel free to call our Concierge anytime at 912-232-1020 or 800-820-1020 to discuss your needs and wishes.
