Beaufort, South Carolina Weddings
Where do you envision yourself on the most romantic day of your life?
As you stand in the presence of your friends, family and partner, what do you see? Picture Beaufort, a town built as a monument to the beauty of the surrounding landscape, with its marshes, rivers, astounding live oaks and picture perfect blue skies. Imagine, standing there in the midst of this glory as you start your forever.
Beautiful Beaufort by the Sea has been home to many peoples since its existence. The Natives, Spanish, French and English all recognized the incredible promise of the geography and landscapes of this area of the Lowcountry. Before St. Augustine, before Jameston and before Plymouth, the beauty of this region called people to it. Beaufort and its surrounding area generously offers to everyone.
Whether you come seeking adventure, relaxation, history, art, or nature, the Queen of the Carolina Sea Islands welcomes you. The beautiful historic downtown is a registered National Landmark, and with incredible views of the Beaufort River from almost any point, pristine antebellum homes and gardens, and a charming arts community, it merges the old south with modern amenities.
Home to some of the finest restaurants in the state, brilliant southern seafood dishes are sure to please any palate. Real southern hospitality awaits you at the numerous boutique hotels and charming Bed & Breakfasts. A downtown marina as well as beautiful parks and walking trails give visitors a way to connect to the water and landscape of Beaufort. Take a carriage tour of the historic homes, visit sites that were made famous in movies like Forrest Gump, The Big Chill and the Great Santini, or just sit a spell in one of the swings in the Chambers Waterfront Park and enjoy the view. A simple stroll down the streets of this historic downtown with the sweet scent of jasmine and ancient live oaks overhead will give fresh perspective on one of the oldest inhabited places in America.
The Sands Beach, next door, in Port Royal, is the perfect spot for a day by the sea. Enjoy dolphin watching, and shell hunting as you take in all that this historic town has to offer. Parris Avenue offers local dining options and an ‘antiquer’s’ delight, as you pass old signage and furniture of a time gone by in local storefronts. Beautiful marsh landscapes and unparallel views of the Port Royal Sound, the second largest natural port on the east coast, are a photographer’s dream.
Whatever brings you here, the food, the sights, the history or the arts, we promise you’ll be back. Beaufort is a community that charms, welcomes and calls for your return. Whether it’s for a weekend or a lifetime, this happy seaside town awaits your arrival.
So take your first steps down the aisle with us, and say, “I Do,” to the perfect setting for your perfect day.
