Romantic South Carolina Weddings

USA Today recently compiled a list of the most romantic wedding destinations in South Carolina, and to my pleasant surprise, an upcoming friend's wedding locale made the cut. I knew the scenery at Palmetto Bluff was beautiful, and cannot wait to head there in November where my husband will be performing the ceremony at the charming chapel.

Here's a snippet from the article: The Inn at Palmetto Bluff, a Montage Resort - tucked into a curve of the May River, 40 minutes outside of Hilton Head, the Inn at Palmetto Bluff is a luxurious retreat set in the heart of the lowcountry where you and your guests can kayak with dolphins; ride horseback; hike; and indulge in massages and facials in a spa overlooking a quiet lagoon. Dreamy settings for weddings — inside an old-fashioned clapboard chapel, on a formal lawn with plantation ruins as your backdrop, under a canopy of moss-draped oaks — set an unabashedly romantic vibe that's only matched by a visually stunning landscape of ancient maritime forests and tidal creeks.
