Our Story

Our Story

There once was a passionate Savannah wedding planner with an innate eye for design. Though an extraordinarily successful coordinator in her own right, she always had the nagging feeling that she could – and, more importantly, should – do more with her talents.

One fateful autumn, this Savannah planner crossed paths with an equally fabulous planner from Texas, who just so happened to be moving to Georgia for her husband’s career.

Meeting to catch up over a simple cup of coffee quickly turned into an hours-long planning session – what these ladies do best, after all – and before they knew it, the concept for Design Studio South was born!

Currently calling a quaint little space off of historic Broughton Street in downtown Savannah home, the talented team offers Full-Service Event Planning and Design, serving the Lowcountry and beyond.

Alysse Sweeney

Designer, Coordinator, Owner

credits her intensive design background – she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design with a minor in Architecture from Savannah College of Art and Design- with her success in Savannah’s wedding industry over the past six years. During that time, she has designed and run well over 200 weddings while developing fantastic working relationships with the area’s top-notch vendors, a fact on which she prides herself more than any other area of her success because it speaks to her personable, detail-oriented and get-results reputation in the industry. She has a passion and that passion is what makes her unique. When she’s not working a wedding you will likely find her spending some quality time with her fiance, James and their dachsador, Taylor and their german shepherd, beagle mix, Callie.
