We Are ESW
Coming together from a wide variety of backgrounds, our skilled team of professionals are the backbone of Elegant Savannah Weddings. Their ideas and creativity help shape our success. Read on to meet some of our incredible team members.
Co-owner & Lead Planner
Meet Co-owner and Lead Planner Mark Royston. Mark has a degree in Business and Event Management. He started his career in food & beverage and once worked for Wolfgang Puck in Chicago, IL. In March 2010, Mark became the Weddings and Events Planner for two of Savannah's premier private venues. The idea of starting a Wedding Planning Company came to Mark after many years of being the restaurant's events manager & seeing how client's needed / wanted more assistance in planning their Big Day.
Co-owner & Creative Director
Meet Co-Owner, Creative Director and Mark's wife, Meg Royston. Meg has a bachelor's degree in liberal studies where she studied everything from Design to Business Management. Meg came aboard the ESW team in 2015, after working fulltime in business management and part time at the event venue that Mark managed. When she worked the events with Mark, she loved being a part of something so special & knew that with her background in design & management branching out into the Wedding world was the way to go.
