It Could Not Have Been More Perfect
Wow, I don’t know where to begin. Everything—from our first visit to the actual day of the wedding—was an absolute dream. My now husband had visited once before and thought I would love it, so he took me while we were in the process of touring venues. He was right, I loved it from the first moment we pulled up. We just knew that “our spot” was under the oak trees on the Riverfront Lawn. We worked with Patty and Rachel throughout the planning process and there are no words to explain how terrific these two ladies are. We were supposed to get married in early May, but then Covid happened and we had to reschedule for October (which turned out to be perfect). They held my hand and guided us through unchartered waters, as we pretty much planned two weddings (our original date and the new date). They thought of EVERYTHING and then some...I know this team went well above and beyond to make our day perfect, plus they were always just an email away if I had a question. Needless to say, our wedding day was absolutely perfection and seamless in every way. Patty coordinated our day and to say she has her ducks in a row would be a huge understatement; I don’t believe I have ever seen an event run so calm and smoothly. I truly have the utmost respect and appreciation for them and their team. We also worked with Cheryl the weekend of for catering and she was so incredibly sweet and helped ensure that everything was just as we wanted. All of the staff during the reception made us feel like family (as does all the staff on the grounds). We are just so blown away by the whole experience. Lastly, but certainly not least, the venue itself is second to none. As I mentioned previously, our ceremony was at sunset on the Riverfront Lawn under the live oaks and was completely breathtaking. Our reception was in the Federal Reserve Room located in the front on the main clubhouse building. The beauty and history of the grounds paint a surreal backdrop for a wedding. Each time we have visited, I always feel there is something about The Jekyll Club that is unlike anything else on this earth (and I have traveled quite a bit); you feel as if you step back in time and you get to experience life in its purest form. That being said, I don’t think that there are words or even photographs that can accurately depict magic that this place exudes. It is just something you must experience for yourself.Sent on 11/03/2020

Amazing and stress-free!
As a 2020 bride, I can honestly say my wedding was not a stressful weekend because of Cricket and the Jekyll team. Everything came out beautifully! We had our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour at Crane Cottage with our reception indoors at Morgan Center. I did not have to worry about anything and remained hands-off the entire weekend. During the planning process, Jekyll remained super responsive and accommodating. They alleviated all the COVID stress and provided flexibility even up until the day of the wedding. It is so helpful to have everything included all at one venue. My guests were all blown away by the resort and the hospitality. It was truly a wedding experience as one guest described it. HIGHLY recommend.Sent on 09/21/2020

Elopement that didn’t feel like an elopement!
We decided to do an elopement with just a few close family members. Jekyll Island Beach Club Resort made our day so special and easy but it felt like my dream wedding from start to finish. Ceremony on the beach was perfect!Sent on 02/02/2020
