About the Savannah Botanical Gardens
Located only minutes away from Savannah's Historic District, the Savannah Botanical Gardens were conceived and designed in the 1980s by volunteers. The Garden includes a pond, amphitheater, nature trails, an archaeological exhibit, and the historic Reinhard House.
The Reinhard House is a German vernacular farmhouse was built in 1840. Originally built near present-day downtown Savannah, the house was moved to the Botanical Garden in the early 1990s to save it from demolition and today serves as headquarters for the Savannah Area Council of Garden Clubs, Inc., and member clubs. Today, the Botanical Garden is owned and operated by Savannah Area council of Garden Clubs, Inc, a non-profit organization that consists of 15 garden clubs.
The Savannah Botanical Gardens is the ideal location for an intimate wedding of approximately 25 or so guests. Couples who marry at the Savannah Botanical Gardens will have two primary venue spaces for their ceremony and reception:
The Garden: Featuring 10 acres of magnificent flowers and plants, the Botanical Gardens include rose gardens, winter, fall, herb, and vegetable gardens, and camellia, perennial, shade, and fern gardens. It includes nature trails that run around a pond and has been recognized by the Wildlife Federation as an official wildlife habitat.
Reinhard House: Built of heart pine with gingerbread trim, the lovely Reinhard House is one of only two pre-Civil War farmhouses in Savannah. Two stories tall and surrounded by a lush green lawn with a charming white picket fence, the Reinhard House is the perfect location for the wedding party to prepare in before their outdoor garden ceremony.
