This gorgeous Southern city is teeming with fascinating history and stunning architecture, but it isn’t all museums and gothic design. The Hostess City – as its nickname implies – is always party ready! Kick up your heels on the ballast stone streets with some classic melodies and take advantage of the vibrant atmosphere. An elegant, lively air always with a hint of that sweet, Southern hospitality. Bonnie Kaar of First City Events, a wedding planner in Savannah, GA, rounded up a few of her favorite pieces for a seaside celebration.
