Oh boy, am I loving Style Me Pretty Georgia. It's literally been one amazing wedding after another, all filled with gorgeous brides, wonderful details and fabulous locations. And these stunning Jekyll Island nuptials are no exception to the Georgia weddings rule. (And I am thoroughly convinced there is one.) There are so many incredible details, from those bouquets by Floriade to that beautiful color palette, I have been in swoon-mode since the moment I saw these brilliant images by Agnes Lopez Photography. And when I spotted that ah-mazing gown, well, it was all over for me. I plan to buy that dress, move to Georgia and see what happens. In the meantime, let's spend some time in the gallery!
From the Bride... Alex and I got married at the Jekyll Island Club on Jekyll Island, GA. We had our ceremony in the romantic Crane Garden and our reception next door at the beautiful Crane Cottage & Courtyard. When Alex and I started discussing our wedding we didn't focus on colors or a theme, instead we discussed how we wanted our wedding to feel. We knew we wanted to include our guests in the entire weekend and for everyone to feel like they were a part of the celebration. We also knew the only way to accomplish that would be a destination wedding which was close enough to both our home towns and Charleston, SC, where we live now. The first time we visited the Jekyll Island Club, we realized quickly it was exactly what we were looking for! I grew up in Atlantic Beach, Florida not too far from Jekyll Island and visited as a child. Both Alex and I were fascinated by the Island and Hotel's history. Jekyll Island is such a magical and inviting place and is a gorgeous backdrop for a wedding. We knew that if everything worked out that it was the perfect place to celebrate all weekend with family and friends!
My mom guided us through the entire planning process. She made sure everything was gorgeous and everyone was happy! We had so much fun working together on every detail to create a timeless, fun and low key celebration. And celebrate, we did! Our band kept everyone on the dance floor and the Crane Cottage and Courtyard created the perfect flow for our guests to mingle and enjoy the gorgeous clear night. We couldn't have asked for better weather the entire weekend and I was so happy that we were able to cut our cake in the Courtyard and have all the bars outside, too. I love the old world feeling of the Hotel and especially the Crane Cottage and spending the evening under the stars in the Courtyard only added to the romantic and warm atmosphere. I have so many amazing memories from the entire weekend but my absolute favorite was walking down the aisle and seeing Alex anxiously waiting for me gleaming with the biggest smile I've ever seen! Some of my other favorite memories; staying with my sisters and cousin the night before the wedding and dancing the night away with everyone I love and looking down at all my friends and family from high up in the air while doing the Horah! It was an absolutely perfect weekend!
