Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The South has an incredible wealth of history and tradition that dates back hundreds of years. That culture, combined with incredible scenery, amazing cuisine, and hospitality at its finest lends to such a sense of place, and provides the most undeniably charming backdrop for not just a wedding day, but for building a legacy of memories.
Favorite part of a wedding day? Cocktail hour! When the nerves of the wedding day have come and gone, you are now a Mr. and Mrs. and you get to look around and see the people you love most celebrating your vows that were just exchanged. That is the best feeling in the world for couples and an excellent time to really relax, bask in the glow, and let the best in the industry take charge of a perfectly crafted evening for you and your guests to enjoy.
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Focus on the big items. Incredible venue to call home for the weekend, a place you will never forget to exchange your vows, local artisan cuisine, hand-crafted cocktails, a wealth of candlelight, an amazing band, and a talented photographer to capture it all. Those are things you and your guests will remember 20 years from now.
Early bird or night owl? Early bird–the sunrises at Palmetto Bluff are some of the most spectacular in the world.
