Beach Elopement At Night | Jekyll Island Destination Wedding Planner

Stephanie Holman and David Born eloped to Jekyll Island on August 4, 2011.  The setting was beautiful and romantic on Driftwood Beach….at night! 


Stephanie wore a long ivory chiffon gown with a single strap and ruched empire bodice.  Her long brown hair was pulled into a beautiful side ponytail.  She accessorized with a pearl bracelet and drop pearl earrings.  Her bouquet was made of burnt orange mini callas.


David, the groom, wore white linen slacks and vest, along with a white shirt and sleeves rolled up to ¾ lengths.  He also wore a maroon colored tie and a mini calla boutonniere.


Luminaries lit the aisle and led to the semi circle of flaming tiki torches as the two stood barefooted together and vowed their love forever.  Not another soul in sight, save for the 7 close family members, who stood among the centuries old, massive driftwood trees.  The glow from the torches projected into the night air and across the ocean waves as the ceremony began. 


In the distance, lights flickered from ships out to sea as Stephanie and David looked into each other’s eyes and spoke sweet words of love. They professed their vows, exchanged their rings, and I pronounced them husband and wife. 


Truly one of the most romantic ceremonies I’ve been a part of.  The glow of the torches and luminaries along the beach and the sounds of the ocean behind us made this ceremony one that I won’t soon forget.  Just beautiful!

Other men said they have seen angels,

But I have seen thee…

And thou art enough.
