Hi fellow NE Florida bees.  I still haven’t decided if we’ll be getting married near here or running away!  It will be nice to know there are other local bees around either way.

Hello,

Both me and my finace are from Greenville, SC, but we are getting married June 6, 2009 on Amelia Island. The church is downtown Fernandina, and the reception is on the plantation at Walker’s Landing. I grew up coming to visit my grandparents here, so we decided to have a destination-ish wedding in beautiful and sunny Florida!

I grew up up in Jacksonville – spent 20 years there before moving to Los Angeles.

Hello! I am getting married May 2 in Amelia Island. My fiance and I moved here from San Francisco, so this is a destination wedding for all our guests. I saw someone was married at Oyster Bay, how was it? We are looking to have our rehearsal dinner there. Glad to see Jacksonville people on here!

CalJax – I was down in Amelia last weekend meeting with my vendors. My caterer, Michelle Sharp with "My Personal Chef", is now the chef for Oyster Bay – we went out there to meet with her, and the venue is GORGEOUS. The only thing I’ll say is that it is before you get to the Intracoastal Waterway bridge – so it’s technically off the island – it’s really only 10-15 minutes from downtown. You have to travel a pretty far ways back there, but once you get there, it’s such a beautiful venue. I think it would be an awesome place for a rehearsal dinner. We thought about it, but I think we’re doing ours at Brett’s Waterway Cafe. It’s walking distance from the Hampton Inn & Suites, and right downtown so that people can go to the Palace Saloon, etc. afterwards and meet up with other guests who are down visiting.

The only thing I feel bad about is that Brett’s holds about 100 people. That means we can’t really ask everyone who’s coming down for the wedding (and EVERYONE is from out of town). I guess I’ll just suggest great places to eat out on Friday night, and then say to meet up downtown or something like that. Has anyone else had this problem?

I actually just got married at Oyster Bay in October.  I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.  Feel free to send me a private message.

McRae – Thanks for the information!! I am a little worried about getting people there since it is a bit away. How is Michelle? That’s who we spoke to about the menu we are looking to do. She was a little bit more than other caterers we looked at.

Our main problem is the Shrimp Festival is happening the weekend of our wedding, so downtown is a bit off limits for us. Not many places are willing to host us. We are in your boat with almost ALL guests from out of town, so we have like 120 on our guest list now and that’s not everyone. I feel your pain because we can’t invite everyone. One thing we thought of doing is meeting up with people at the Shrimp Festival after (like at Florida Inn, Palace Saloon. Maybe include some information is the guest gift bags, like "good eats" and then ask to meet up at a certain time at one of the fun bars down there. There is also Falcon’s Nest at Amelia Island Plantation (which for us may be less crowded to get to).

Are you form Jacksonville? When is your wedding? Congrats!
