Saint Simons Island Wedding at Villa De Suenos

The great thing about knowing he’s the one… is KNOWING he’s the one. Our sweet bride contacted us before she was even engaged.  She had a “feeling” a proposal was coming and loved Saint Simons Island, so naturally, she wanted her wedding to be in the Golden Isles. We exchanged emails back and forth, falling in love with each other’s quick wit, fashionable ideas and love of martinis. Needless to say, I was all too thrilled to get a chance to meet with my kindred spirit on a trip she and her fiancé were making to Jekyll Island.

Then she cancelled.

She was so apologetic for “wasting my time” (No waste at all– I adored talking to her each time!).  She just didn’t think the proposal was going to happen during their trip, but thanked me for all the information, ideas and laughs.  I won’t lie– I fell in love with her personality and style, so I was bummed.

Until she emailed two days later, exclaiming, “I’M ENGAGED!!!!”  The rest was history.

We planned this beautiful, ocean inspired wedding at the gorgeous private residence, Villa De Suenos on East Beach on Saint Simons Island.  They exchanged vows overlooking the ocean– while their closest friends sang a personally written song just for them.  Guests from all around the country dined on traditional Southern food,  a popcorn bar, Blonde Bombshell signature drinks and partied. . . All. Night. Long.  No, seriously… Rob Base’s “It Takes Two” came on, and it was all over.

My favorite thing (and you know how much I love cake)?  The way they looked at each other all night. . . I hope you two look at each other like that for the rest of your lives.

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.

Working with Chris and Tania was an absolute joy!  They contacted us about planning their wedding on Saint Simons Island when the oil spill devastated the Gulf and their destination wedding plans.  Within about three months, we had plan an entire wedding which was drenched in green cymbidium orchids and other tropical florals, brilliant sapphire silk bridesmaids dresses, coastal cuisine, a live R&B band against the beautiful backdrop of Villa De Suenos— the gorgeous oceanfront property on Saint Simons Island’s East Beach.  You can also see more delicious images at Melanie and Bradford of La Dolce Vita Studio’s awesome blog.
