JESSICA + JOE
St. Simons Island, Georgia
The effortless romance of Georgia’s coastal empire was the long-awaited setting for Jessica and Joe’s wedding. According to tradition, every woman in Jessica’s family said their vows on St. Simons Island at their own specially-chosen venue with a reception to follow at The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort. And so Jessica and Joe promised one another forever at Epworth By The Sea’s Tabby House Gardens surrounded by manicured boxwoods, moss-draped live oaks, lace, ribbons and flowers. Following the ceremony the couple and guests hitched a ride on the island’s wedding trolley for The King and Prince, where steaks, seafood and soulful tunes awaited them. Intimate details drove home the theme of family and togetherness, with guests leaving their unique thumbprints on paper in lieu of signatures, and a tree of paper leaves meant for leaving advice to the bride and groom. Antique family vases, heirloom blue and white china — effortless reminders of the new and perfect union, affirmations that their love would join a long and cherished line of many.
