They were married at The Jekyll Island Club on Jekyll Island, GA. The grounds and all of the buildings were absolutely stunning. The humidity, not so much. Boy, was it hot and humid for the end of September! None the less, it was a beautiful setting and the perfect place to have a wedding. Their wedding was held at The Crane Cottage, there was a beautiful outdoor courtyard, that had an old Italian Villa feel to it, and their ceremony was held outdoors in front of the cottage. Here are some pictures of the venue.
Here are some of their DIY Projects:
Don't these fans look familiar, you can read about ours here. Fans are a must for a Georgia wedding for any season other than winter. You never know how the weather will treat you down in Georgia. Their fans pulled double duty as being a program and a fan to help keep us cool. They were placed in all of the chairs at the ceremony, and they were a blessing, helped us stay a little cooler as we waited for the sun to go down.
This was the first cupcake cake I have seen, and it really was as cute as all of the pictures that are out there on the Internet. They had a cute little cake as the top tier, so they still had a cake to cut, and the cupcakes were so yummy and easy. There was no one left having to be responsible for cutting and serving the cake.
Recipe in a Bottle
Recipe in a Bottle were their favors and they were so stinkin' adorable, and what a great idea! They used little spice jars and put a label with their names and wedding date on them. They used a family recipe of the grooms, Pecan Pie, and a family recipe of the brides, Brunswick Stew, and rolled them up and tied them with some raffia. I can't wait to try out the recipes, I see a college football Saturday with this Brunswick Stew all over it! Yum!
I don't really have any pictures of this, but they had a slide show that played throughout the reception. It had pictures of their life's from childhood until now. It was a beautiful slide show and it really captured both of their personalities.
Check out my handsome hubs....
All in all, it was a beautiful event and it was so great to see all the love between C and B and all the love and respect that everyone in that room had for them too. We had a great time, and we are so happy for them! Check out the happy couple!
