A breathtaking wedding location!

My husband and I were 100% certain we wanted to get married on St. Simons Island, we just didn't know where exactly. After assessing various locations, we fell in love with Captain's Bluff. Not only because of the amazing views, the giant oak trees with the Spanish moss, the dolphins stopping by at sunset, the deers saying "hi" every morning, the charming cottages and the romantic barn, but also because of Lauren's tremendous help throughout the process. We had a very small wedding and more than half of our guests (15 to be exact) stayed on site. We had our ceremony outside and it was simply gorgeous and we then had the reception in the barn which was so pretty! All of our guests kept telling us how beautiful Captain's Bluff was. We are so happy we decided to get married at Captain's Bluff - what a great choice! Thank you Lauren for making our day so special!

This was a beautiful setting! The owners/managers could not have been any nicer. Checking to make sure all our needs were met. The whole experience was absolutely perfect! We are planning a family reunion in the near future so we can visit again!

We had our wedding here last month after our original venue falling through and it honestly topped our original choice. The property is beyond gorgeous and exceeded all my expectations. We had the southern wedding of our dreams and Ben was so easy to work with, we are from Maryland so having good combination was key and he was there every step of the way and even let us start setting up early to ease some stress the weekend of the wedding. The house is perfect for guests to stay in or to get ready in, the whole thing was just perfect and our guests are still telling me how gorgeous the venue was and how glad they were they made the trip. Cant say enough good things!

The location provides all the charm of a private setting, with "grab your cameras" views of the sun setting over the river. The hospitality is world class, treating you just like family.
