One of my favorite weddings of this season so far has to be Dana & Jonathan’s intimate destination wedding at the fabulous Cloister Sea Island, GA. Both the bride and groom lead very busy lives as physicians and planning a large wedding was simply not what either of them wanted to do with their free time. Instead, they chose to have a small group of their closest family and friends join them at one of Georgia’s finest resorts for a luxurious wedding weekend. With only 20 guests total, this black tie affair was a wonderful change of pace from our typical larger scale weddings. The guests were treated to a welcome cruise on the Cloister’s vintage yacht as well as several days of fine dining and getting to know one another over cocktails and excursions. There were no attendants, just Dana and Jonathan in a tiny candle lit chapel expressing their absolute devotion to one another. Not a dry eye could be found as they said “I do” and kissed for the first time as husband and wife. After the ceremony, guests were treated to a beautiful single table dinner in the resort’s wine cellar as a classical guitarist entertained for the evening. I absolutely love how both families bonded at this wedding. Everyone was so blissfully happy to be a part of such a special occasion. We could not have asked for a more incredible wedding to kick off our 2010 season and truly feel blessed to have been able to capture these memories for such a wonderful couple. Below are some of my favorite images from their wedding day. Also, my new favorite get away… 20 foot sparkler fountains as the car drives off. Absolutely breathtaking.
