Wedding at the Inn







Weddings are always such a happy occasion. This past weekend we hosted a wedding for a lovely couple from Jacksonville. Congratulations Stew & Charla! I just thought I'd share a couple of the wedding pictures with you. The photos were taken by Debbie Peacock. This was the first time I'd met Debbie and I hope it won't be the last. I took a few minutes to peruse her website and I was really impressed. If you're looking for a wedding photographer, check her out at http://www.peacockphotoandvideo.com/ .

Fireworks on the River


Here in Savannah, fireworks on the river is a monthly event. Not a big deal to most Savannians. Every first Friday of the month, fireworks are seen high above the Savannah River for all to enjoy. This past Friday, not the first of the month, fireworks rained over the river. To whom did we owe this extravaganza? The 62nd annual convention of the American Pyrotechnics Association would be the answer. I didn't even know they had an association let alone a convention. Anyway, they culminated their visit to Savannah with a world class fireworks display. What a treat! Not your usual fireworks. They were quite grand. Next time you are planning a visit to Savannah, keep the first Friday and Fireworks in mind and a big thanks to those Pyrothechnics. Great job!

September Wine Tasting

Saturday evening was our monthly wine tasting. The event was again, a great success. Lots of good wine, food and conversation. This month's theme was "Red Blends Rule" and rule they did. Not only was there a great selection of wine, they were all very affordable. All, with the exception for the fine Port we had for dessert, would be available retail for under $15! The wines were accompanied by equally accessible and affordable food offerings that included, roasted pork, beef sliders, bbq chicken, mushroom risotto with tri-tip roast and of course dessert, chocolate profiteroles with chocolate cream. Yum, Yum! Needless to say, no one left hungry. The evening was facilitated by Lindsay Melton from United Distributors. She did a fabulous job and was a wealth of information. Thank you Lindsay. This month's tasting was hosted by Jake and Teresa Jacobson owners of Azalea Inn. The tastings are presented jointly by Azalea Inn, Green Palm Inn and, of course, yours truly. We all three pitch in with the cooking and planning to offer a fun, relaxing evening of wine, food and a little education. If you haven't had the chance to try one of these events or have and want to come again, just give us a call to check on the next date. Traditionally, they are held on the third Saturday of the month but they are subject to change depending on schedules. Next month's theme will be "Take Me to Bed Reds" and will be on October 23. I know, sounds a little naughty but fun, right? Anyway, it should be another good time. Call now to secure your spot!
