I bet you’d love to see a beautiful Jekyll Island Wedding? Right? Voila! Your wish is our command! BBP Couple Julie + Lance tied the knot at the Great Dunes Beach on Jekyll Island and celebrated with their family and friends at the Moss Cottage on famed Millionaires Row in the historic district of the Jekyll Island Club. “This cottage was built in 1896, as shown by the inscription in seashells on the front. Typical of the early club cottages, its rustic appearance is a reflection of the casual lifestyle of the original club members, who sought to escape from the pressures of the city to hunt, fish, and enjoy the natural beauty of the coastal environment. Downstairs are an entrance hall, a game room with wood shingle walls, a parlor, a dining room and servant’s area with butler’s pantry and kitchen. Upstairs are five family bedrooms, two full baths, one half bath and a servant’s room. The attic floor contains seven rooms, probably used as servants’ quarters, storage, and one bathroom. The cottage, like many built during the Club Era, also has a basement. Originally, a solarium was located on the south side of the cottage.”
The storm rolled in early, most of the guests hurried to take shelter under a pavilion as they waited and mingled with Lance, watching as mother nature gave the ceremony site a nice cleaning. Soon after, the sun and blues skies appeared to celebrate the I Do’s! Then this NY couple was greeted with that humidity that only the south can bring after such a thunderstorm–but quickly found a nice sea breeze to greet them as they took their seats on the beach.
When asked if time and money was not in the way what they’d do? “Travel…nonstop…we’d want to see everything. We’d be beach bums with a margarita stand and bunches of dogs to love.” I mean, who in the world can argue with THAT?????
We wanted to know of the two of them, who was the most likely to tear up at Hallmark commercials and Julie said “Mostly me…by mostly I mean always me.” Which of course tells you that in the Funny Category she is competitive. Verrrrrrrrrrry competitive.
On a warm evening, filled with the sound of laughter, the sharing of friends, the enjoyment of trees dripping Spanish Moss, the beauty of the water beyond and the lights hanging from the branches, Julie + Lance celebrated their union. They were most looking forward to “Having our friends and loved ones together and having an awesome time watching the sun go down on the ocean with our bellies full of margaritas and tacos!” All of these elements shared the day with abundance, yay for margaritas and tacos! And of course, yay for LOVE!
Julie + Lance we wish you a lifetime of laughter, of tacos and margaritas in exotic locales, of love, of joy, of all the very best!
