We went to a wedding in Jekyll Island, Georgia this weekend.
(I think I had the handsomest date there.)
The Rehearsal Dinner was held on the docks of a seafood bar.
I loved the clever little sign, but I wasn't so sure about the dollar bills stapled to the walls. It seemed like a waste of resources. Maybe they should try decorating with Monopoly money instead?
The ceremony was held under ancient Oak trees overlooking the ocean. The air was salty and windy,
And the colors and fabrics were ideal.
The island is protected by lots of conservation laws, so there is still an abundance of natural beauty. It was perfect for pictures,walks, talks, play, and I do's.
The little tins were party favors filled with
these M&Ms printed with "Thank You"s and a portrait of the couple from their engagement pictures.
The large driftwood centerpiece was made by the bride's mother and aunt from driftwood they found on the beach. I'm not sure who made the sign, but I loved it. They really did have lawn games. Croquet and horseshoes were set up on the lawn overlooking the beach.
The bride made all the bouquets and flower arrangements herself the day before the ceremony, and her friends and family helped set up the day of the wedding while the bride got dressed and took pictures. It all came together beautifully.
