Of all the places I've shot weddings in this world, Reynolds Mansion on Sapelo Island, GA is probably one of my very favorites. The mansion, originally built in 1810 as manor house for the Spalding Plantation. It was eventually remodeled and purchased by the owners of the Reynold's Tobacco company as a vacation home and was a sister property to their primary home, Graylyn Estate in Winston-Salem, NC. The property is surrounded by wetlands, forests, hiking trails, and incredible ocean dunes and wide beaches. Since the property is a part of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve and University of Georgia Marine Research Facilities are still located on the island as is the Sapelo Lighthouse.

Guests begin their journey to the island at the mainland visitor center followed by a beautiful 30-minute ferry ride, they arrive at this 12-mile-long island.
