Elevate Your Event

LEED-Certified Event Venue

Weddings Made Easy. More Personal.

Are you, or a friend or family member, getting married this year? As you search for the ideal venue for hosting a wedding, wedding reception, any special event, know that the Richmond Hill City Center is a beautifully customizable special event space with flowering gardens and serene views.

We are the Georgia Coast’s most centralized wedding venue, central among the cities of Savannah, Statesboro, Pooler, and Brunswick.

When it’s time to plan the wedding, our team is here to listen. Or perhaps you’re looking to have a non-wedding wedding. That’s right. It’s an emerging arc of trends to go off course from the magical weddings of yesteryear to something more practical – and still magical – that fits a couple’s blended personality.

Vogue asked top event planners to share their predictions for 2024 wedding trends and the non-wedding wedding term consistently rose above the noise. It’s a departure from the expected to the unexpected, with less structure and more flair for the soul.

A few highlights of trends Vogue researched that are emerging in our era:

  • More casual, family-style foods
  • Separation of sacred ceremonies from the parties – with ceremonies on Friday
  • Bolder and more adventurous décor
  • Documentary-style photography with fewer posed photos and more candid content for still photography and video
  • Sustainable design and gifts – let go of the plastic! Grow the florals and display the centerpieces, craft wedding gifts and hand-grown bouquets.

The transformation of weddings is shaped by cultural shifts and tech advancements, according to research by Special Events magazine. Get ready to be invited, or host, a wedding that may have temporary tattoo stations that make the experience more shareable. Flamboyant dessert presentations, complete with fire or imaginative plating, are replacing traditional cake-cutting services.

Wedding attire is dramatically changing, with couples breaking away from white dress and penguin tuxedo traditions toward options that better represent their personal styles. Think: bridal jumpsuits, bejeweled men’s brooches, and mix-and-match separates. Stylists are being added to wedding planning.

At Richmond Hill City Center, we are poised to help you plan a traditional wedding or a non-wedding wedding. Our highly experienced professionals work with many stylized events and budgets hosted in our LEED-certified destination experience.

Weddings here embrace the natural sunlight and outdoor spaces. The City Center is secluded and surrounded by pristine gardens and wetlands.

Consider The Veranda, an indoor/outdoor space for up to 200 guests. Guests who attend cocktail receptions and wedding receptions love The Veranda for its spacious, breezy ambiance. The Veranda is screened in and overlooks the historic wetlands and private gardens with direct access to The Patio. Comfortable, cushioned furniture invites guests to relax.

The Garden & Patio accommodate up to 600 of your best friends and family. This versatile space of 6,000 square feet overlooks the water in the heart of the park’s serene wetlands. A paved ceremony space, separate paved outdoor patio, and green lawns provide year-round settings for wedding ceremonies and receptions, reunions, private dinners, and more.

Our onsite herb garden is tended by the award-winning culinary team and foods are sourced locally as much as possible. Having an oyster roast or a low country boil at your wedding reception? We know all about hosting events that are idealized to capture the essence of the Georgia coastal ecosystem.

Your guests will be just 12 miles from Savannah and 17 miles to the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport – voted Best U.S. Airport by Condé Nast Traveler readers.

When you work with Richmond Hill City Center, you get to work with a team that will listen to you. We will ask you what you visualize and help you plan your special ceremony. We are versatile in prioritizing our clients’ goals, from planning a wedding, a non-wedding wedding, to a corporate holiday party, a Centennial nonprofit celebration, or even a white-tie military ball.
