Southern Wedding

Imagine getting married underneath the enchanting Spanish moss, or in a historic antebellum home, or beachside with soothing waves rolling in the background. The South offers so many options for unique weddings, and there’s no shortage of beautiful backdrops. We grew up in the South (Erin in South Carolina and Ben in Tennessee, Kentucky and Florida), and therefore have a special place in their hearts for Southern weddings. Every time we get off  the plane in one of our favorite Southern wedding destinations, we feel a wave of peace and relaxation wash over us. I would imagine our Southern brides have the exact same feeling, whether they grew up there or grew up somewhere else and have chosen a Southern wedding venue for a destination wedding. We get so excited when we get a call from a Southern bride – can’t wait to see who we get to celebrate with this year!
