Tybee Island, GA. Lighthouse Wedding

Islands Magazine Cover — June 2008NUPTIAL NIGHT LIGHT

If you’re looking for a unique site where you can seal love’s flame with an intimate wedding ceremony, consider Tybee Island Light Station off the northeast coast of Georgia. Surf kissing the shore creates the processional music as you ascend the 178-step lighthouse. (Don’t trip on your train!) Emotions will swell bright as the old, 9-foot First Order Fresnel lens when gray-haired Captain Longwater ties the knot at an elevation of 144 feet.

Afterward, you’ll savor low-country cuisine: a dish of boiled shrimp, sausage and potatoes. The island remains enchanted by Geechee/Gullah culture, Civil War ghosts and legendary pirates. Just across the bay, luscious Savannah drips with social grace, Spanish moss and that tale of good and evil.
