Real Jekyll Island Club Wedding :: Caryn and Jonathan
Last month, I had the wonderful honor and privilege of witnessing the marriage of Caryn and Jonathan. Caryn and I worked together for about ten months to pull off one of the most beautiful and romantic weddings of our season. Everything was laced with a little detail of Caryn and Jonathan– their love and admiration for each other to their fun loving spirit.
I knew from the Hands Ceremony where the officiant stated “Caryn, look at Jonathan’s hands– these are the hands that will provide for you, will wipe away your tears on a bad day and hold yours tightly as you bring your first child into the world…” that this ultra-personal, family oriented and beautiful affair is only a glimpse into your lives together.
Rachel, our new Fabuluxe Associate and I had the chance to team up with Scarlett Lillian and Turner Classic Weddings for Caryn and Jonathan’s wedding at Crane Cottage at the Jekyll Club on Jekyll Island. You may have seen some of these on Scarlett’s blog, but if not– you may now bask in her awesomeness:
Caryn had one of the most beautiful and ornate bridal purses. I remember seeing it in her notes at our floral consult, and I fawned over it then. It is just as beautiful in person!
Caryn’s father passed away, so she commemorated his spirit by having him with her as she walked down the aisle, as a picture on a locket braided to her bouquet.
Everyone from Gay Whatley of Gay Whatley Floral Design to Tommy Tucker of Dance Jammers did a wonderful job in going the extra mile to create a fantastic event for Caryn and Jonathan and their guests. I am so grateful and honored to work with such awesome professionals. Scarlett, as always you did a fabulous job capturing what endures far longer than sparkly linens and lush flowers— the love and passion that ignited it all.
