The Cloister

The Cloister at Sea Island is an exclusive resort that provides an elegant, dramatic, glamorous setting for brides and grooms looking to impress their guests. Our beautiful Southern couple Camille and David had a sunset garden wedding in front of the chapel at The Cloister. They had a private dinner for two out on the lawn afterward, and danced the night away under a tent attached to the ballroom. It was a perfect destination wedding weekend, with many guests opting to stay in neighboring St. Simons Island, which has an adorable, easy-to-get-around downtown by the water.
Here are some tips for planning a fun destination wedding weekend in Sea Island:

  1. Book a Sea Island vacation rental home, and host a casual welcome party there Thursday night.
  2. Fill up beach bags with beach-themed favors and treats as your welcome bag for guests.
  3. Give your guests some downtime to enjoy the beach and all the great seafood restaurants on St. Simons Island. Some favorite restaurants we tried while there: Barbara Jean’s (for good downhome Southern cooking); Frederica Boat House (where the rehearsal dinner was); Iguana’s (amazing fried shrimp!)

We fell in love with Jessica from her very first email to us. She wrote us before she and Matt were even engaged, having a feeling a ring may come soon. Her hunch proved correct.
