Stephanie and Corey – Villa Marianna Jekyll Island Club Wedding

Hey friends! We have some Pinterest worthy wedding inspiration to share with you today! This wedding has quickly become a new favorite! We had the pleasure of documenting Stephanie and Corey’s whimsical wedding at Villa Mariana and we loved. every. minute. of. it. In fact, you might remember these two sweethearts from their Driftwood Beach Engagement earlier in the summer.

Whimsical, ethereal, vintage, secret garden.

Our photographer’s hearts were basically on overdrive from the moment we arrived on site.  Their day was perfectly orchestrated by Emily with Emily Burton Designs. Her team created a simple and elegant masterpiece with Lavendar and GraceDetails and dreamy natural light aside, Stephanie and Corey were the real reason we’d been looking forward to this wedding for so long. They are so genuine, so intentional, and so so so perfect together.  From their first look at Clam Creek, to dancing by the water at the golden hour, we really enjoyed getting to know their love story and celebrate with them. Just looking back at these photographs and seeing the way Corey looks at Stephanie and the way Stephanie smiles back makes us smile. They had the most beautiful ceremony surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Stephanie had mentioned a choreographed daddy-daughter dance, but we were not prepared for how ADORABLE it was going to be, AND to top it off the special song was Do Wah Diddy by Mandred Man – which is Amanda’s FAVORITE song so you may see her lip-syncing in the background behind the camera lens.

They picked this song because Stephanie’s dad sang it to her as a baby.  And, if that doesn’t turn your heart into mush, Ya’ll, just wait. Minute 2:04 will MELT your heart.

There she was just a-walkin’ down the street, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
Snappin’ her fingers and shufflin’ her feet, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”

*Disclaimer:  We do not own this video*

Now we’re together nearly every single day, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
A-we’re so happy and that’s how we’re gonna stay, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”

The night was capped off with a mouth-watering cake from Cathy Huber Cakes! (Isaac made sure to sneak a bite before the night was over!) and horse and buggy exit!

We’ve been giddy about pressing “Publish” on this blog post, because we love the thought of you two sharing a moment together, reliving these moments. We hope you love looking back at these photographs thinking of your memories as much as we loved documenting them for you.

Big Hugs and Lots of Love,

Isaac and Amanda
