LGBTQ Beach Elopement

Victorian Meets Modern Style in This Beach Elopement

Serene, stylish, and stunning, Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island looked better than ever as Derrick and James exchanged their vows with the calmness of the ocean breeze behind them.

Their elopement to the picturesque destination in Georgia, derived from their love of the outdoors; embracing a Victorian meets modern style with blue, purple, and gray accents highlighting the couples favorite colors.

We’d be lying if we said their head-turning look didn’t capture our hearts as fashion was no challenge in this duo’s attire. James sported a navy Calvin Klein suit with a deep purple bow tie, with Derrick a custom made tulle skirt and Victorian tie, while carrying a bouquet he made of cool tones to tie in nods to the winter season.

The intimacy alone is enough to make anyone swoon, but the charm of the love shared showcases the beauty of a small wedding when love is the focal point.
