Coastal Florida Wedding at The Mansion at Tuckahoe- Jensen Beach, Florida

 

“We're both from the same home town (Gainesville, FL) and attended the same high school and then college (University of North Florida in Jacksonville) but Sean is 6 years older so always at different times. We have the same group of friends from home so we'd see each other when I visited Gainesville but were always dating other people. In October 2016, Sean kissed me and we were "boyfriend/girlfriend" by November 2016. After dating long distance for about 6 months, Sean moved to Jupiter, FL to be with me. We got engaged in July 2018 and scheduled our wedding for Feb 2019. My dad was battling cancer for a few months but we were told it was "totally treatable" so not much of a concern. After an unsuccessful chemo treatment, it became much more serious and we moved to Tampa for 6 weeks to undergo a recently FDA approved treatment called car-t therapy. The process was very scary and no one knew if he'd make it, so in mid-December we decided to post-pone the wedding. By Christmas time, however, the Dr informed us of a miracle... he had beat cancer. Although there's still a high chance the cancer will come back, and he is now permanently paralyzed from the waist down and in rehab, we're hopeful. We decided to re-book the wedding for the same date and here we are!” - Tara (bride)

Best Wedding Venues on the Georgia Coast

I do love a southern wedding, but you know what I love more.. a coastal southern wedding! Georgia has some of the most unique wedding venues in the country because of its rich history! The Georgia coast is full of great venues, but I wanted to highlight my favorites! So let’s get into it!

  • Sea Island Wedding - I first learned of Sea Island as a young girl, my grandmother always spoke of where her super cool, surfer brother worked and lived.. life to the full. So naturally living on the opposite side of the state, far away from the coast I always dreamed of visiting! Sea Island does not disappoint, the views and service are out of this world. If you’ve ever dreamed of being in a Nicholas Sparks film, hear ya go! Sea Island offers a ton of ceremony and reception space- but these are the faves!

    The Beach Club

    The Cloister Garden

    Black Banks Terrace

    Black Banks Lawn

    Rainbow Island

  • The Greenhouse SSI - This venue has to be one of my absolute favorites! I love the modern, bohemian vibe mixed with all the white architecture.. It is a photographers dream! The Greenhouse is nestled on St. Simons Island, a picturesque beach village.

  • Villa Ospo- Hello Spain! Villa Ospo brings your dream destination wedding vibes to the Georgia Coast. Villa Ospo is part of the Jekyll Island Foundation on Jekyll Island. Jekyll Island is full of rich history.. and if you’re anything like me that makes this villa even more intriguing.

  • Villa Marianna - Another historical gem on the Georgia coast! Villa Marianna is also a part of the Jekyll Island Foundation, located on Jekyll Island. If you are a boho, eclectic gal this is your dream wedding venue! I mean just look at that lovely peachy color, mixed with the Mediterranean tiles and Spanish style roof. Helloo can I get married here!?
