Charleston, SC Wedding Planning
Congratulations you are engaged. You have done your research, and made the best decision like most other American couples who married in 2018, one in four 23% considered their wedding a destination wedding. A smart choice for your wedding budget because an average cost for a destination wedding will typically be $28,152, versus the traditional U.S. wedding ranging from $32,900 & up. You are looking for a one-of-a-kind experience and for it to be intimate & unique. That is why you selected a Southern Charm theme & why your wedding will take place in the second-largest city for destination weddings on the east coast, what we locals refer to Our Holy City of Charleston, SC. This is your first step to building a future together and you could have not picked a better city for the rich history and pure romance. Wedding planning can also be exciting and fun. With today's technology that includes the internet despite your distance, you can get a wealth of information and use Skype or FaceTime, or Zoom to meet your preferred vendors, just like if you were right there in front of them. I think that too many wedding vendors mimic the words planning & stressful too much. It scares you, however, it should not, it is like baby steps, you need to take your time, find the right vendors, meet & get to know them, have a few conversations & see if the vibes & knowledge are there? This is why after 19 years of being a wedding photographer in Our Holy City of Charleston, SC, I am often asked by many of my client's questions about how they should start planning for their wedding. This being the main reason, I created a collection, an incredible inventory of great resources for your wedding planning to help answer all of those questions. You will find guides, tips from local vendors, free spreadsheets for budget, and much much more.
