Jekyll Island Wedding

Hi Everyone! If you can believe it, the hubs and I were out of town to go to another wedding this past weekend! We have been wedding crazy in our household the last 5 months, but this was the last wedding we are attending in 2011...whew! It has been a crazy wedding season, and we have seen so much great inspiration and C and B's wedding was no different! They are the most adorable, and attractive couple we know..and I have no problem saying that because I also know they are two of the kindest people in the world and they are perfect for one another, so happy for them! You will love their venue and all of their cute DIY touches, but don't let that stuff make you too jealous, because they will be in Greece for 3 weeks for their honeymoon! you can be jealous...

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.

Guest Book

The great thing about Guest Book's is that there are so many different ways to have them now. You don't have to have a simple book where people just sign their names anymore. I LOVED their guestbook. It was almost like a yearbook of their love. It was full of their personal photos and engagement photos and there was plenty of space for everybody to sign their names and leave a personal message for the couple. What a great keepsake. This is definitely something they can leave out on their coffee table and actually get some use out of.

Cupcake Cake

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!

Slide Show

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!
