Real Wedding | Spring Inspired Jekyll Island Club Wedding

Real Weddings

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

Real Wedding | Soft And Subtle Floral Design At Jekyll Island Club

Real 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!
