Beautiful Bride and Groom on Jekyll Island's Driftwood Beach. Georgia.

Casey and David – A Driftwood Beach Wedding

Sun and Sea Beach Weddings would like to congratulate Casey and David on their recent wedding on Driftwood Beach.  Driftwood Beach is located on the northern part of Jekyll Island, Georgia and is part of the golden aisles.  With it’s haunting driftwood trees, this landscape creates dramatic and unique photography.  This beach is ideal for a couple that is looking to get away from the “beach city” vibe and escape to a natural and rustic setting.  Being a tidal beach, Driftwood Beach is best utilized during low tide.

Casey and David selected Sun and Sea Beach Weddings’ new 4-Post wooden arbor.  This wedding arbor is stained dark and really adds a level of sophistication and elegance to any wedding theme.  Decorated in Mauve, pinks, and champagne,  Casey really wanted that upscale look right in the heart of mother nature.

This couples photography was outstanding.  The groom David, is active military and brought out the old stars and stripes as a backdrop for a stunning photo captured by our photographer.  We really love this shot of the couple and I would put it up there with one of my favorite photos in Sun and Sea’s history.

Our team really enjoyed working with this lovely couple and we thank David for his service to our country.  We wish you two all the best in the years to come.

Your Friends at Sun and Sea Beach Weddings.

Florida Beach Weddings and Reception Packages

Beach Weddings In Florida

Looking for a Florida Beach Wedding Company?

If you have decided that a Florida Beach Wedding is for you, then you might be overwhelmed by the shear number of options.  There are many things to consider when looking at a Florida Beach Wedding company.  The staff of Sun and Sea Beach Weddings are here to assist by providing guidance and recommendations.

What are your travel plans?

Not familiar with the beach options in Florida? We can help!  There are so many beautiful beaches along the Florida coastline that you really can not go wrong with any destination.  The greater Jacksonville Area offers the unique beaches of St. Augustine.  St. Augustine is the oldest city in the United States.  This Island town captures the true essence of a European village with Spanish architecture and amazing cuisine.  The Columbia is by far one of our favorites.  The Castillo De San Marcos, the oldest fort in the U.S. is also a site to see in the historic district.  The fort offers up a great alternative for a wedding locations that can produce photography to die for!  This is one of the most memorable places to visit in the state and is full of activities for you and your guests.  Amelia Island, Vilano Beach, Jacksonville Beach, and Ponte Vedra are also amazing choices in the surrounding areas.


One of the largest categories that differentiate Florida Beach Wedding companies is their in house photography.  When you are shopping for the right fit, make sure to look at the photos on the galleries and facebook.  Do they offer professional photography or Freelance?  There is a massive difference in the quality of work that can be delivered.  Normally the photography is one of the most expensive parts of a wedding, so if you see companies offering cheap deals, better check into the before you pull the trigger.  A Florida Beach Wedding company that has consistent photography will want to show it to the world, so if you do not see a lot of photos, you might want to ask why?


Communication is key when it comes to planning a Florida Beach Wedding.  As you decide to reach out to the various wedding companies across our sunshine state, take note on the ones that respond quickly.  You can tell a lot about a companies communication up front.  If they take longer than expected to return your call, best guess is that trend will continue.  A successful wedding company will be readily available and have lightning fast respond time.


While the Spring and Summer months are by far the most popular times to get married, they are also the peak of the tourist season.  The winter months in Florida are very mild, have earlier times for sunset, and offer way more privacy on the beach.  The Fall and Winter months are often absolute perfect times to have a Florida Beach Wedding.  Do not rule out January, often times we have blue skies and zero rain.  Sometimes travel costs are also cheaper, another perk of a winter wedding.

Do your research and follow some of the tips above when analyzing the various companies across the state.  Go with your gut and pick the team that you can identify with most!
