Real Jekyll Island Wedding : Kadi & Matt
Kadi and Matt’s Historic Jekyll Island wedding was one to remember. There were so many details to fall in love with– Kadi’s art deco inspired wedding dress, the lush florals and the romantic sunset. What out did everything was the sheer love these two felt for each other, which is clearly evident in every image of them together.
What made this day a success was how easy going and slow paced it was. Both Kadi and Matt decided not to have any attendants in their bridal party. Their day was spent getting ready, relaxing at the Westin Jekyll Island, ultimately getting ready for the romantic first look at Villa Marianna. Matt waited for Katie, playing their favorite song from a vintage record player. Their photos took them all over the historic district on Jekyll– from the Horton House ruins to the illustrious Driftwood Beach.
The two exchanged vows under the oaks at Moss cottage, surrounded by family and friends and a very special guest– their faithful dog. The wedding reception took place on the sprawling lawn of Indian Mound, Rockefeller Cottage across from the beautiful Jekyll Club Hotel. Kadi wanted a modern take on a 20’s Great Gatsby style garden party. We designed the entire wedding around a gorgeous white bar that featured boxwood hedges and vintage luggage. The four sided bar featured different cocktails and spirits on each side. Kadi’s brother created a custom microbrew just for her wedding and it was an absolute hit. We also set up a loving memory table to honor Matt’s dad which featured some of his favorite cigars. The bar was surrounded by cocktail style seating and lounge furniture, where guests could enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres while watching dancing under the porte cochere.
This was such a beautiful wedding on all levels and we are so blessed to have been a part of it!
