Having our wedding in Charleston was everything I had imagined! The backdrop for an outdoor wedding is breathtaking, the food fabulous, and the quality of vendors in the area is unmatched.
Nathan has a creative and artistic eye. His pictures told the story and captured the spirit of our special day! I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw the proofs, they were like a fairytale wedding!
The strings were extremely talented and played both during our ceremony and during the cocktail hour. We chose mainly classical music during the ceremony, but during the cocktail hour they were verstile enough to mix in some Coldplay and Red Hot Chili Peppers!
Our wedding cake featured orchids Jim created out of sugar and the traditional Charleston basket weave. It was breathtaking, more a work of art than a cake. If that wasn't enough, it was also the most delicious wedding cake I have ever eaten!
Flowers were beautiful. I only knew a couple of flowers that I wanted and Lillie made suggestions that went perfectly with the colors that I had chosen. The bouquets were large and full. We alternated two different centerpieces on the tables and they both were exactly what I had envisioned.
This was the only vendor we were disappointed in. They were extremely late with the chairs and linens...so this held up the florist before she could decorate the tables and the chairs were thrown out, not very straight and I had to have friends straighten the rows before the guests arrived.
A Wedding at Dunes West captures the lowcountry feel of Charleston in every way. The wide open porches and balconies, the moss draped live oaks beside the water, and the hospitality of the South. Jason was wonderful to work with and everything turned out perfect!
Nice hotel and reasonably priced. Worked well with us booking a block of rooms for our guests. They even contacted us to lower the rate as the date drew nearer.
Food excellent, and very quaint in the old historic part of Charleston. We held the rehearsal dinner here. Only draw back was that the room was a little small and crowded for our number of guests.
Location of the my Bridesmaids Luncheon, we used the bricked courtyard and had a lovely lunch in the shade of the umbrella tables. Food was awsome as usual.
