    I chose Savannah for these reasons:

    1. i would love to go to Savannah 🙂

    2. The Lodge in Tennessee is a great idea and also looks romantic. But this is a place i would totally connect with a snowy winter wedding

    3. The overall look of the Savannah venue is amazing, i LOVE it. And as you leave your kids with their grandparents, this is the perfect occasion to enjoy a very romantic and unique getaway

    I suggest getting married in Savannah, and going on vacation in the mountains someday, with your kids, it might be a great adventure for them and your husband

    I am extremely biased because I ADORE rustic, outdoorsy and most of all cheap vacations ;D Plus, I live near Savannah so it doesn’t have that pizazz for me

    hmm well if you’re not really outdoorsy then I’d go with savannah. Nothings worse than being out in the wild when you hate the place XD plus, i hear the ghost tours are fab!

    I like the Savannah, GA location. It looks a little more romantic, and there will be plenty of activities to do after the eloping!

    Both look wonderful, but I voted for the Gastonian Inn. Even if it is more expensive, it sounds like the one that would make you happiest on your wedding day. It also has a more romantic feel to it. Save the other trip for maybe a 1 year anniversary or something fun!

    I vote for the mountains. I’ve been to Savannah and Gaitlinburg/Pigeon Forge, but I like the mountains the best in September. Leaves changing, etc. Just beautiful!

    I’ve never been to Tennessee but several coworkers have eloped in Gatlinburg and had the most beautiful pictures! It looks so calm and serene, not to mention incredibly romantic! Good luck with your decision, I’m sure it’ll be wonderful!
