A ROUNDUP OF FIFTEEN WEDDING VENUES TO CONSIDER FOR YOUR BIG DAY

As a wedding photographer, I have a unique perspective on wedding venues in Charleston because I visit so many of them on a regular basis. I have seen them in different seasons, different weather conditions and so forth.

In this post, I am dishing the pros and cons of each one, and a pointer that I think will come in handy for you as a Bride.

Narrowing to some of my favorite Charleston wedding venues was no easy feat, so only the venues that can accommodate a ceremony and a reception are on this list.

Let’s dive in!

As a longtime Folly Beach local, I’m here to give you the best few hours you can spend on Folly Beach for free. There are tons of restaurants, bars, and shops to spend money on during the rest of your trip, but use this guide for some ways to have fun on the island without bringing your wallet!

The entire island is 5 miles wide. To stay completely free, you can accomplish this tour with your own car and some easy walking. But to have a little more fun, I typically recommend some alternative transportation such as bicycles, mopeds, or golf carts.

The order of this tour is up to you, and you can even break it up into a few different times of day, or different days of your vacation. My preferred order is to explore both ends of the island, then finish at the center of town.

If you’re paying a visit to the Lowcountry, there are several classic Charleston dishes you really ought to try.
