Earlier this month, we produced and co-hosted a Girls Night Out event with the Sea Palms Resort on St. Simons in honor of the new movie, Burlesque featuring Christina Aguilera and Cher.  This was the best must-attend party in the middle of the week!  The event was a great opportunity the ladies of the islands to let their hair down, get dressed up and party Cocktails + Details style!  Ladies walked the red carpet enjoyed tapas and special designer signature drinks (Dream and Breathless), which were a huge hit!  Chris Moncus served as our resident paparazzi for the evening, while Justin Henshaw of Island Sound provided the music that kept everyone on the dance floor.  James Grella and Jason Lavender of Image Artisans gave all of our ladies mini-makeovers prior to loading the ladies up for their royal transport over to a private screening of Burlesque.

We had a fabulous time— it was a great chance to see old friends and meet new ones.  Another congratulations to Kristin Williams who won our ultimate swag bag giveaway which included beauty products, makeover and a vacation at the Casa Monica in St. Augustine, FL!  I just want to say thank you to all of the professionals that helped me pull off this event: Wendy, Chris, Justin, James + Jason—you guys were awesome and I appreciate you all so much.

Stay on the look out for next Girls’ Night Out event in February— we’re going inside the genie bottle, baby!

Meet the Locals: Chris + Amanda Moncus, St. Simons, Sea Island and Jekyll Island Wedding Photographer

Our new series, Meet the Locals, will introduce  you to some of the Golden Isles’ wedding professionals who service Saint Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and beyond.  Because I simply adore them, I’ve asked them specific questions to bring out their awesome personalities and showcase their work.  Enjoy!

St Simons and Jekyll Island wedding photographer

This week’s local, or “locals”, are Chris and Amanda Moncus of Chris Moncus Photography.  (Doesn’t this picture just make you smile? I love it!)  Chris Moncus Photography is the dynamic husband and wife duo of Chris & Amanda Moncus. We fell in love with photography right after we fell in love with each other. Rarely did a camera leave our side. After shooting our first wedding we were hooked and now years later here we are lighting up the Golden Isles.

  1. My favorite part of the wedding day is…seeing the love the couple has for each other – especially at the first look – and photographing it.
  2. I never leave the house for a wedding without my …(this is easy) camera.
  3. My one tip for couples getting married in the Golden Isles is: Get married in the late fall or winter. We don’t have super cold winters and this is the least booked time for vendors so you’ll have an easier time getting who you want. Don’t worry about the scenery either – Jekyll Island Club Hotel, Sea Island, and Epworth all maintain their lawns to be mostly green year around.
  4. A must-see or must-do for couples while in the area: Must-see… The sunrise at driftwood beach. Must-do: Relax in the St Simons village.
  5. A picture of our favorite wedding day image and why: Ok so here’s the deal. I feel like a parent… I can’t choose which kid (picture) is my favorite! Wanna help?

Since Chris put me on the spot, here’s the one I chose.  Completely swoonworthy:
