Pastel Jekyll Island Wedding |  Concept-A Photography

Imagine a place filled with historical beauty, laden with charm, and surrounded by water with the river on one side and Atlantic Ocean on the other. The Jeykll Island Club has long been referred to as “The Millionaires Club” and with guests as famous as the Rockefellers, Pulitzers, and Vanderbilts to name a few; this coastal gem is like taking a step back into the gilded age. Add in a Victorian-era color palette laden with pastels, a bride that stuns with natural beauty, and a venue with a life of it’s own – it’s entirely easy to see why we’re smitten with this seaside celebration captured by Concept-A Photography.

Details from the bride –

Crane Cottage on Jekyll Island, Georgia, was the first location that Adam and I thought of when we started planning our wedding. He’d taken me to Jekyll Island for my birthday one year, and I clearly remember feeling as though we’d stepped into a movie, it was all so perfect. 

The Club Hotel and surrounding “cottages” have been so well preserved and maintained that it was easy to feel like we’d stepped back in time. For that reason, I chose decorative touches with a Gilded Age theme- blush heritage roses, peonies, and dahlias; dotted-swiss vases hanging from shepherd’s hooks along the aisle, and carried the pale pink of the floral design into a post-Victorian-era color palette of grey, cream, and blush. My Marisa dress had an antique feel to it but my amazing seamstress, Holly, played to the art-nouveau styling of the time by customizing the neckline. She used the intricate beading on my Rivini veil to create a beautiful neckline and little flutter or cap looking sleeves.

Those dresses were one of my favorite things about the entire wedding! We took pre-ceremony photos in the garden and the palette was gorgeous – the pale greys and blush and my dress against the green. Halfway through the photos we looked up and our friends were hanging out of their window cheering at us. I loved it! It was so special to have everyone so close all weekend.
