Sunny, One So True | Jekyll Island Destination Elopement Planner

♪♫♪♫   Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain.
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
Oh, the dark days are gone and the bright days are here,
my sunny one shines so sincere.
Oh, Sunny one so true, I love you.


Yes!  Sunny Vidrine and Daniel Bollinger eloped to Jekyll Island, Georgia, and were married at 6pm on beautiful and rustic Driftwood Beach.  The afternoon could not have been more perfect for this romantic and intimate ceremony held among the centuries old driftwood covered beach. 


They arrived right on time, and both were smiling from ear to ear as they stepped from their vehicle.  Sunny was as bright and glowing as her name implies!  She was beautiful in her wedding attire of white linen and battenberg lace.  Her skirt was long and flowing with a matching waist length, v-neck and short sleeve bodice. 


Sunny also wore a necklace made from a stone that was from her grandmother’s ring and carried a handkerchief, as well.  She would be presenting Daniel with the ring that his grandfather wore.  I loved hearing about all the sentimental additions to their elopement.   


Because Sunny is ‘just that creative’ she made her own bouquet of seasonal wild flower mix and also intertwined flowers within her dark brown hair.  So pretty!  Much to our surprise, she presented Jeannie the photographer, and me, each with a stem of white mini roses!  How sweet!


♪♫♪♫   Sunny, thank you for the sunshine bouquet.
Sunny, thank you for the love you brought my way.
You gave to me your all and all,
now I feel ten feet tall.
Oh, Sunny one so true, I love you.

Daniel was quite the Rockstar and ever so handsome in his khaki suit!  He wore a white shirt and pale blue tie.  His eyes were as bright and as clear as a bell! 


We all took the short path down to the beach and as we approached the opening to view the ocean and the tide, Sunny was in awe!  She had never seen Driftwood Beach in person and could not believe how beautiful it was.  The smell of the ocean breeze and the sounds of the seagulls above set the tone for the ceremony to begin.  


♪♫♪♫   Sunny, thank you for the truth you’ve let me see.
Sunny, thank you for the facts from A to Z.
My life was torn like a windblown sand,
then a rock was formed when we held hands.
Sunny one so true, I love you.


The two stood together, held hands, and listened as I read the words of the apostle Paul, who wrote, “Love is patient and kind; Love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude; Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right; Love bears all things, believes all things,  hopes all things,  endures all things.”


Vows were spoken from the heart and they were both overwhelmed.  The love they spoke together was as romantic and intimate as could be….and that makes me very happy and content to have been chosen to be a part of this loving ceremony and to bring together two people that genuinely love from the deepest part of their heart and soul.


They exchanged rings and held hands together as they felt the gift that they are to each other.  After I pronounced them husband and wife, Daniel kissed Sunny as tears flowed from both.  At last, they were Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Bollinger,II.   

♪♫♪♫   Sunny, thank you for the smile upon your face.
Sunny, thank you for that gleam that flows with grace.
You’re my spark of nature’s fire,
you’re my sweet complete desire.
Sunny one so true, I love you.
