Villa Ospo Wedding on Jekyll Island
Jul 11 2013

Jekyll Island Wedding: Anna & Jamie


Planning Anna and Jamie’s Jekyll Island wedding was amazing.  We worked closely with Anna and her mom to create some that was truly reflective of the couple: relaxed, casual and fun.  One of the most important things to Anna’s family was the inclusion  of her grandparents beautiful antiques and custom pieces.  With a backdrop of the gorgeous Villa Ospo as a wedding venue, everything tied very well together.

For the wedding ceremony, Anna lovingly wore her grandmother’s wedding gown and looked absolutely stunning for her first look under the oaks with Jamie.  Just a few hours later, she surprised him by walking in to his favorite song after exiting from a vintage Rolls Royce.

For the reception, Anna wanted something that didn’t look “too put together or too stuffy”.  As opposed to regular centerpieces, we incorporated vintage books, oil lamps and eclectic vases filled with a casual grouping of florals.  Each table had photos of the couple through out there lives, and these were in abundance: Anna’s mom and Jamie’s mom are best friends and were pregnant at the same time.

The gorgeous Villa Ospo is one of my favorite wedding venues on Jekyll Island that most don’t know about.  from it’s beautiful courtyards and sprawling yards, it is definitely a favorite wedding location in Millionaire’s Village.

Fashion Monday: Anne Barge Fall/Winter 2012

I am truly adoring the fall and winter line from Anne Barge!  It is truly a throwback to the Great Gatsby-esque glam of yesteryear.  While vintage weddings are still hanging on, glamour is also still making a huge impact, so this is a great mélange of the two styles.   Anne says that this season, “We were all about lace. Totally romantic, ethereal, and very classic Anne Barge this season. My inspiration for this collection comes from a historical take on texture.”

And there is definitely plenty here!  The rich complexities of the garments, bias cuts, sweetheart necklines, layers and lots of details!

Be sure to check out their Featured Brides (which includes the fabulous Justine Ungaro!) as well as their blog which features real weddings with brides wearing their veils (I love that they feature a destination wedding on the beach—which just goes to show that their veils work for all  brides).  

Gorgeous Bridal Hair Clips for Your Wedding

I just love the variety of hair ornaments that have made it to the scene recently.  Before, wedding barrettes were overdone and overstated.  Now, they can be so simple and really appeal to so many other brides and work with various hairstyles and lengths. Your barrette can add a subtle or shocking of touch of color, enhance or play down a dramatic makeup look.  It can also tie in a theme—a vintage, beach or modern design.

The Dauphine

I really liked Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette.  I was also a huge fan of The Affair of the Necklace, as well. I was not all that surprised that both movies used the same fabulous costume designer, Milena Canonero.  I loved everything about those movies:  the lush fabrics, the delicious colors and ostentatious jewelry.  What came to mind while I was watching it?  Of course:  wedding sugar 🙂 LOL!  I kept seeing all types of things that would be wonderful to incorporate into a wedding.  So, that is the inspiration for this week’s storyboard.  Offset on vintage black and white toile with classic baroque elements in soft, blush pinks, we believe the queen would be proud!  Without further adieu…
