Diana and Drew told our Cocktails & Details® team they envisioned ‘southern charm with a European twist’ for their Jekyll Club Hotel wedding. ‘We are sophisticated but not stuffy, love fun details, and Drew is down with my glitter obsession.’
The Jekyll Club hotel was the perfect backdrop for their wedding. From the southern charm of its mature trees draped in Spanish moss to its iconic architecture, it had everything they wanted.
The Library at Crane Cottage
The spacious cottage allowed lots of space for Dianna and her wedding party to have hair and makeup services on site.
Dianna wore an A-line wedding gown with a v- neck and natural waist by Enaura Bridal. She carried a loose hand-tied European style bridal bouquet with cream dahlias, Ocean song roses, ivory garden roses, lavender lisianthus, dusty miller, and silver dollar eucalyptus.
Her crystal and rhinestone Badgley Mischka pumps were the perfect accessories!
Drew looked handsome in a dark navy vested suit. The notched satin collar and white bow tie added a touch of sophistication.
After getting ready, Drew took a little walk under the incredible trees to get ready for his first look at his bride-to-be.
The setting, the anticipation, and their first look are EVERYTHING!
Crane Cottage Wedding Ceremony
The couple chose the sunken garden at Crane Cottage for their wedding ceremony. Steps away from the cottage, the lawn was set with large garden urns overflowing with florals in shades of purple and blue. White garden chairs lined the aisle trimmed in floral petals.
Dianna, escorted by her parents, made her way to her husband-to-be to the sounds of Canon in D. By the sweet look on Drew’s face, you would never know he had just seen his bride a short time before.
The couple exchanged their wedding vows surrounded by family and friends before heading off to ‘All You Need is Love’ by the Beatles.
Cocktails & Details®
After their cocktail hour around the reflecting pool, wedding guests made their way to the hotel’s courtyard. The wedding reception was set with tables along the covered walkway, with the buffet reception set around the center fountain.
Tables were dressed in white linens lined with greenery roping with cream and purple blossoms to add pops of color. Gold candlesticks intertwined with floating candles and votives completed the tablescape. Guest tables were named for cities worldwide, with a map of the world as the seating chart.
Dancing the Night Away
A white frame tent with lounge seating and black and white dancefloor created the perfect space for dancing after dinner.
The newlyweds opened the dancefloor with their first dance to Thomas Rhett’s ‘In Case You Didn’t Know.’
Shortly after the dancefloor opened, Diana had a little surprise for Drew! She planned a reunion with the ladies from her acapella singing group. A quick change into matching outfits, with a bit of glitter for the bride and their performance of an ABBA song, was the highlight of the reception.
The couple closed the reception by cutting their beautiful four-tiered white and gold wedding cake before making their exit!
The Send-Off and After Party
The couple may have ended the reception with a traditional send-off- but the party continued at Crane Cottage. The afterparty included a fantastic DJ, glow sticks, and some late-night sliders and fries.
Our Cocktails & Details® team loved this incredible couple, and we wish them a lifetime of happiness.
