Cumberland Island Weddings And What You Need To Know

St Marys is the gateway to Cumberland Island, Georgia's largest and southernmost barrier island. Here pristine maritime forests, undeveloped beaches and wide marshes whisper the stories of both man and nature. Natives, missionaries, enslaved African Americans and Wealthy Industrialists all walked here.  Cumberland Island is also home to over 9,800 acres of Congressionally designated Wilderness.​  With 19,000 acres of upland, 18 miles of undeveloped beach, 5 campgrounds, and thousands of years of history, there is a lot to see and do. Cumberland Island National Seashore is home to many beautiful cultural and natural settings which are ideal venues for a variety of special activities such as events, wedding ceremonies, and film and photography projects. Weddings held in the park require a special use permit, issued only after the National Park Service (NPS) determines that the activities involved will not impair park values and resources. Please note that there are usage limits for the number of people for any special activity.​ MORE ABOUT CUMBERLAND ISLAND ​
