Spectacular Destination Weddings on Georgia’s Coast
The Jekyll Island Club Hotel has been a cherished setting for generations of happy couples. Here, a wondrous sense of history walks hand in hand with unforgettable celebrations. Intimate or grand, casual or formal. Every event is presented by a team devoted to delighting the wedding party and their guests with thoughtful planning and brilliant execution amid the Hotel’s unrivaled multitude of romantic, inspiring venues for celebrations and ceremonies.
This grand, Italian Renaissance-style cottage, adjacent to the main Hotel, has a formal Sunken Garden with fountains and an upper terrace–perfect for wedding ceremonies up to 250 people. Additionally, Crane has a fountained Courtyard with arcaded loggia and seating for up to 130 people. Couples often choose the Sunken Garden with its lush trellises and fountains for their ceremony, followed by gathering beside the front Reflecting Pool Lawn for a cocktail party before a seated dinner in the Courtyard, and crowning the event with cake cutting and dancing in the Crane Living Room. Event fees for Crane weddings include use of all the Cottage grounds and interior spaces. Reservations for its thirteen guest rooms and suites are required and are additional. Faith Chapel, with its Tiffany stained glass window, is across the lane from Crane Cottage. Take a virtual tour of Crane Garden
An easy stroll from Crane Cottage, Cherokee welcomes events up to 50 persons. Many brides choose to have their ceremony on the Cherokee Lawn, followed by the pleasures of dinner, reception and dancing in the Main Hall. Event fees for Cherokee include its lawn, terrace and interiors. Reservations for its ten guest rooms and suites are required and are additional.
Whether on a blissful afternoon or with the glow of a glorious sunset, views of the river and a canopy of ancient oaks provide a sensational, open-air setting for outdoor ceremonies followed by food and dancing. This storybook setting can even include the happy couple departing in a horsedrawn carriage!
You can say “I-do” with sand between your toes and a seabreeze in your veil! The Hotel’s Beach Pavilion, a spacious open-air structure, accommodates up to 70 guests–the perfect seaside setting for alfresco wedding events or rehearsal dinners.
Once the private indoor tennis court for J.P. Morgan, the Morgan Center is the Hotel’s newest and largest event venue. For larger events up to 300 persons, the Center provides an outdoor terrace and lawn–ideal for an outdoor ceremony, a mezzanine and a large main floor for receptions and seated dinners. Couples selecting the Riverfront Lawn for their ceremony may choose to move indoors to the Morgan Center for their reception.
Hall of Mirrors
Smaller, more intimate events are sensational in any of the private banquet rooms that flank the Hotel’s historic Hall of Mirrors: The Pulitzer (pictured), Federal Reserve, Aldrich and Alexander rooms. All have 12-foot ceilings, a fireplace and can accommodate up to 20-30 guests each. The rooms can easily be combined for larger groups up to 100.
