We first met Julia and Chase during a consultation with the fabulous Sarah Lillie Designs. Julia came to us with a specific vision for her Jekyll Island Club tented wedding. She wanted rich textures and lush blue booms. So, we created a blue and white design that was showcased beautifully in her garden ceremony and tented wedding reception.
A Blue & White Floral Design
Julia and Chase’s wedding took place in the sunken gardens of Crane Cottage at the beautiful Jekyll Island Club. This Georgia wedding venue is a dream for anyone wanting to marry in a garden surrounded by romantic architecture. For this wedding, we focused on a blue and white color palette with several varieties of blooms.
Julia’s favorite flower was the blue delphinium, which was such a beautiful bloom to base the design around! During our design consultation, she shared that she wanted dark blue delphinium blooms, which is not a common request. So we were absolutely delighted to be able to design something unique and different to bring Julia’s vision to life.
Jekyll Island Club Tented Wedding Details
Julia and Chase had a large wedding party; Julia alone had 14 bridesmaids! For each bridesmaid, we designed unique bouquets for each of them using completely different blooms. Each bridesmaid carried a bouquet of a single flower type in white. Then Julia’s bridal bouquet had blooms from each of her 14 bridesmaids’ bouquets incorporated into it. It was such a sweet and sentimental way to honor her wedding party.
For the ceremony, we used her favorite flower as the base of the design and then incorporated six different varieties of delphinium flowers into her wedding aisle. The billowing blue blooms that filled the wedding aisle were absolutely stunning! Later in the evening, the ceremony flowers were re-purposed in the tent and placed in front of the stage. I love how the florals truly transformed the dance floor and brought Julia’s blue floral vision to life inside the tent.
We wanted to incorporate other flower varieties into the tented wedding reception as dark blue is not a common color in the flower world. So, we went with the blue cornflower, which was perfect! We designed some bud vases using the blue cornflower and other white blooms that looked stunning in the tented reception space at Jekyll Island Club.
Working with Julia and Chase on their Jekyll Island Club tented wedding floral design was an absolute pleasure. We loved working with the less common color palette of blue blooms and how the design turned out!

Lindsey and Jonah were married on an early fall day in the sunken gardens of Crane Cottage at Jekyll Island Club Resort in Georgia. Their Jekyll Island Club wedding featured the most gorgeous blooms with muted fall tones and lush textures. It was the perfect fall wedding on Jekyll Island.
Jekyll Island Club Wedding
Lindsey’s family frequently visited Crane Cottage at the Jekyll Island Club Resort during family vacations. They knew the picturesque lawns and gardens on the immaculate resort property would make a wonderful place to invite their friends and family for their wedding.
The couple loved the southern setting of this Georgia wedding venue and the exceptional service that the club provides. This ocean club wedding venue provided space for a beautiful garden wedding ceremony and intimate al fresco reception. One of our favorite things about the Jekyll Island Club Resort is the stunning oceanfront views that are perfect for couple portraits during golden hour.
Fall Wedding Flowers
For this fall wedding, our couple opted for a wedding color palette with dusty rose and navy blue. So, we incorporated muted fall tones that matched their wedding color palette into the bridal bouquet and bridesmaid bouquets. In addition, our team opted for a mix of textured florals ranging from Scabiosas to Delphiniums and even Butterfly Ranunculus for the bouquets and finished them off with delicate silk ribbon.
Their asymmetrical floral wedding ceremony arch included a mixture of roses, spray roses, and lush greenery. We lined the aisle with large arrangements billowing in fall blooms and repurposed them later in the reception at the head table. The wedding ceremony flowers were breathtaking and looked beautiful in the garden backdrop of Crane Cottage.
On the guest’s tables, we opted for medium-sized floral arrangements in white ceramic vases that paired perfectly with the white architecture of the cottage. These floral centerpieces included similar blooms to the ceremony with the addition of white dahlias and a pop of red from coffee berries. We loved how the contrast of the floral arrangements looked on the navy blue linens.

Danielle and Tucker’s rose-infused Crane Cottage wedding at Jekyll Island Club turned out beautifully! From the beautiful Georgia wedding venue to romantic wedding design, this couple and their guests were treated to a magical southern summer wedding.
Crane Cottage Wedding at Jekyll Island Club
Nestled in the private gardens of the Jekyll Island Club lies Crane Cottage. It is an Italian renaissance style building that is a dream wedding venue for a romantic garden-inspired wedding. Crane Cottage is the perfect place for a southern wedding, with indoor and outdoor spaces for guests to enjoy. The Gray Harper team loves any opportunity to design a Crane Cottage wedding at the Jekyll Island Club. We have designed many ceremonies in the sunken gardens in the past but loved how Emily Burton Designs used the space differently. The planning team opted for a tent in the sunken gardens and the ceremony on the lawn under an old Live Oak tree covered in Spanish moss. Thus making this an completely outdoor wedding.
Southern Summer Outdoor Wedding
It was a challenge pulling off an entirely outdoor wedding in July in the South. However, due to inclement weather, we had several plans to ensure our couple’s vision went off without a hitch.
On the wedding day, it was stormy and rained on and off. So the entire vendor team kicked into full gear to transition from plan A to plan B and set the ceremony up under the tent. Thankfully the skies cleared just before the ceremony, and we could pivot back then to plan A so that our couple could have their dream wedding ceremony on the Crane Cottage lawn.
Southern Floral Design
The floral design for this Crane Cottage wedding was lush and romantic, with lots of roses. Yellow roses were significant to the couple, so we incorporated pops of yellow garden roses throughout the design.
A soft pink, peach, and yellow pastel color palette was incorporated throughout the space, and it looked beautiful in the tent. We included a mixture of tall and short floral arrangements at the guest’s tables. We also accentuated key areas like the bar and stage with lush blooms of Delphiniums, Smilax, blush pink Hydrangeas, peach roses, and lush greenery. The ceiling installation above the dance floor was a favorite feature and a stunning focal point in the tent. Filled with pink and white Delphiniums and lush greenery, this ceiling installation took the guest’s breath away.
Working on Danielle and Tucker’s Crane Cottage wedding was an absolute joy. We love any opportunity to work at beautiful Georgia wedding venues with as much character and personality as the Crane Cottage at Jekyll Island Club.

This past February, we had the pleasure of working with L+E on their Jekyll Island Club wedding at Crane Cottage. The couple wanted a fun and bright spring-inspired color palette, so lots of beautiful blooms were chosen to bring this garden-style wedding to life.
Crane Cottage Sunken Garden Wedding Ceremony
The sunken garden of Crane Cottage was the perfect Georgia wedding venue for our couple and their Jekyll Island Club wedding. Crane Cottage is known for its beautiful lawns and immaculate gardens and was an ideal setting for this spring-inspired wedding.
A pair of vintage doors with greenery intertwined were set up on the lawn as an entrance to the aisle, while two beautiful pillar floral arrangements greeted guests to their seats. At the end of the aisle, a simple yet elegant wood wedding arch with greenery was the backdrop for this Jekyll Island Club wedding ceremony. There was something so magical about seeing the vintage doors open as our bride headed down the aisle.
Garden Style Wedding Reception
After the outdoor wedding ceremony at the sunken gardens, our couple treated their guests to a cocktail hour on the terrace and garden-style reception on the veranda overlooking the courtyard. The floral pillars from the wedding ceremony were re-used in the reception space, while a beautiful floral arrangement was displayed in the courtyard fountain as a focal point.
Elegant long tables were set with crisp white linens, vintage metal bistro chairs, and fun, bright springtime blooms that brought this garden-style wedding reception to life. The floral design included a spring color palette of soft pinks, peach, and white. When possible, we opted for fragrant florals in the centerpieces; the hyacinths and sweet peas smelt amazing!
To end the evening with a bang, our bride and groom enjoyed a private fireworks show for their guests and their Jekyll Island Club wedding.
We are so thankful that we got to work with L+E on their floral design. It was fun to work with bright and beautiful blooms for all of their guests to enjoy! Be sure to check out some of our favorite recent wedding designs for more spring-inspired weddings

Last March, we had the honor to work with Kathryn and Jeffrey on their floral design for their destination wedding in Georgia. We worked with the couple to design their florals for their welcome reception, wedding ceremony, and wedding reception.
When choosing a Georgia wedding venue, having a beautiful garden setting was essential to Kathryn and Jeffrey. So, the two decided on the Jekyll Island Club Resort, a historic wedding venue on the Georgian coast. With a picturesque Southern setting, this quaint little island is the perfect place for a destination wedding in Georgia.
Behind The Wedding Design
During our initial consultation, Kathryn shared that she wanted a floral design with mainly white blooms that incorporate pops of subtle blue and soft blush flowers. In addition, it was important that her wedding flowers complimented the lovely garden setting of Crane Cottage and its immaculately landscaped sunken gardens.
Kathryn’s family had a special sentiment to the blue Irises. So, a special mother’s bouquet was created for Kathryn’s mom that incorporated this important family flower.
With the wedding boom in full swing, we knew some challenges would be upon us. What was unexpected was that these challenges would come so early into the year. Many florists and designers have had to navigate flower shortages and floral shipping delays; this wedding was our first experience managing these floral shipping delays. Kathryn’s flowers were actually stuck in Tennessee for two days before we could get our hands on them. Thankfully our amazing Gray Harper team jumped in as soon as their flowers arrived to help bring this beautiful floral design to life!
The Wedding Ceremony
Kathryn and Jeffery got to enjoy a magical outdoor wedding ceremony in the sunken gardens of Crane Cottage. Part of their wedding and floral design was to continue celebrations at an outdoor reception on the lawn. Unfortunately, due to unpredictable weather, we had to make a rain call earlier in the day. So, we decided to move the reception indoors to the Jekyll Island Club Resort’s ballroom. As unlucky as this change in plans was, our couples indoor wedding reception turned out beautifully, thanks to an incredible vendor team.
Kathryn’s bridal bouquet included the most stunning combination of white blooms with pops of soft blush Ranunculus. Her bridesmaids held smaller bouquets that complemented this lush bridal bouquet. Each bridesmaid bouquet included petite dusty blue florals along with soft blue and pink ribbons that complimented their dusty blue bridesmaid dresses. One of our favorite design elements of this wedding was the paper cones filled with white rose petals. Kathryn and Jeffery had their guests throw rose pedals during their processional, and it was absolutely magical!
The Wedding Reception
Long wooden tables were set up under a magical array of twinkling lights and subtle greenery inside the ballroom. Dusty blue accents were sprinkled throughout the reception design with the inclusion of blue napkins, blue water goblets, and light blue Tweedia flowers in the centerpieces. While soft pink florals were highlighted on the wedding cake and added to the centerpieces. From votives to vases, delicate accents of gold complimented each table, while the guest place settings were finished with individual sprigs of olive.
Even though our couples wedding had a few minor bumps along the way, we are so pleased to see how this floral design came together. The combination of subtle blue, soft blush, and classy white blooms brought this wedding to life. We love working with couples to bring their floral design visions to life and incorporating special touches along the way. So be sure to reach out and start your wedding design process with us!
