St. Simons Lighthouse | St. Simons Wedding Venue

St. Simons Lighthouse Heritage Center WeddingAnna and Spencer  

There are so many gorgeous places to have weddings on St. Simons Island.  One of the favorites among brides and locals alike is the Lighthouse and the A.W. Jones Heritage Center.  Having your wedding at one of the area’s most notable landmarks can inspire your theme and images.  With it being right at the water, you are able to get some really wonderful pictures that will last a lifetime.

If you are looking for a place that can host both your ceremony and wedding reception, this is a perfect venue.  You have the option of using the nearby gazebo, the porch of the Keeper’s House or even the beautiful brick DeLong Courtyard.  There are also lovely oak trees with the iconic Spanish moss that make for a memorable backdrop.

Most couples opt to have their cocktail hours outside in the brick courtyard and on the surrounding porches facing the water.  Gauging the time of year, position of the sun and tide, you can get a gentle breeze that makes the  area very comfortable.  Buffets are set up in the foyer of the Heritage Center in front of the gift shop (tip:  serpentine tables make for a great, unique design and work well for double-sided buffets which get your guests fed quickly!).

Realistically, the ballroom can fit up to 100 people comfortably with space for a dance floor.  Any overflow can be set up for guests to dine outside.   There is a stage that is the perfect focal point for your sweetheart or head table, cake table or DJ.

All in all, it’s a great venue in a wonderful area that has nearby hotels, making it convenient for your guests to actually walk to the wedding ceremony and reception.  You can bring in your own caterer and baker, which adds more flexibility for your planning.

Happy Planning!

St. Simons Island Wedding: Rachael + Jay

Working with Rachael and Jay was like a dream come true!

These nature and wine enthusiasts traveled all the way from beautiful Wyoming to wed on St. Simons for a relaxed, casual affair at Villa De Suenos. While the winds and clouds threatened outside the beautiful villa,  a warm, sentimental affair awaited inside to celebrate the joining of these two families.

Rachael was such a stunning bride, we were so very excited about her first look with Jay!  Sarah DeShaw did a wonderful job of capturing their personalities, but also their adoration of one another.

After a tough call due to the adverse weather conditions, we had to move the wedding ceremony inside.  Once the musicians cued up, singing “Crazy Love”, I think we all knew that this was exactly how the ceremony was supposed to be.  It ended up being very intimate, personal and endearing. No amount of sunshine could have given that to us!

As the youngest and last of his daughters to get married, this really touched her father’s heart.  I love the look on her face as her dad begins to tear up before walking her down the aisle.

Real St. Simons Lighthouse Wedding: Katie and Jordan

st simons lighthouse heritage center wedding :: wedding planner/coordinator

Katie and Jordan’s wedding was an absolute blast.  I’ve never seen the entire male population of the guest list ditch their ties, surround the bride on the dance floor and serenade her to the Doobey Brothers.  It was a great party– filled with beautiful sentiment, great food and of course great music.

One of my most favorite things of the day was Katie’s wedding dress. It was amazing!  The cut was perfect for her silhouette, and had these beautiful organza and silk flowers along the skirt.  On top of that, it was embellished with a beaded belt on the sweetheart neckline. It was absolutely delicious.

Stacy and Matt’s wedding was a beautiful,  classic affair held at the King and Prince. Exchanging “I do’s” on the beachfront lawn started the festive evening full of dancing, photo booth excursions, the “crowning” of the Bride and the Maid of Awesome and fully choreographed dance number by the groom and groomsmen.  :).

Matt proposed to Stacy at the LOVE statue in Philly–this was later showcased as the couple’s cake topper.  Having grown up in Brunswick, Stacy knew she wanted to come home for her wedding after moving to Pennsylvania.  The King and Prince on Saint Simons Island was a dream location with its gorgeous views and opulent ballrooms, not to mention stellar service.  Using traditional colors of black and white, with an accent of red, the event was amazing and timeless.
