Feature | Jekyll Island Club Wedding
July 4, 2021
Classic elegance meets southern charm in Kait & Eric’s Jekyll Island wedding. It was a stunning day filled with love tradition and a European feel to it. Curated and intentional design with cherished heirlooms added in brought this coastal celebration to life in such a special way. Creating memories that the couple and their families will cherish for a lifetime! – The White Wren
On the coast of Georgia, Kait and Eric threw an European style affair, with twists of modern elements blended in for an experience filled with old and new traditions. It was the best way I could have imagined to start of 2021 wedding season and I am over the moon to be sharing their feature with you today.
Kait and her bridesmaids nestled in the quaint historic halls of Crane Cottage; a 1919 historic renaissance cottage at the Jekyll Island Club, to get pampered and ready for the day. From the intricate gold details of her hair piece to the timeless silhouette of her gown, Kait’s look was an elegant and timeless twist on old world romance.
Eric and his groomsmen toasted the day with bourbon and celebrated
Design of the Day
Their day seamlessly pulled in influences of old world renaissance, low country style, and modern touches. From the pampas grass lining Spanish moss, to pink velvet couches filling coastal courtyards- it was an immaculately styled celebration worthy of it’s own black and white film.
Celtic Traditions Infused
During their ceremony they paid tribute to their Scottish and Celtic heritage by participating in a hand-fasting ceremony – binding their hands together to symbolize the binding of two lives. Their families collected materials & keepsakes – pieces of her mother’s wedding dress, grandfather’s tie, a ballet shoe – and individually tied them together to create the unity chord from their ceremony.
As old souls, the couple wanted their day to be infused with their families’ stories. Kait and her grandfather bonded over Audrey Hepburn movies and fell in love with Breakfast at Tiffany’s. To honor her grandfather’s memory she walked down the aisle to Audrey Hepburn’s “Moon River” – which in turn became the bride and groom’s song.
To have a day as equally as beautiful in legacy + tradition as it is in design is rare. But Kait and Eric’s day was filled with their unique story at every turn.
