Wedding Weekend in Palmetto Bluff

This past weekend my family went down to Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina for my brother’s wedding and it was such a wonderful experience I had to share with you.  Palmetto Bluff is HEAVEN. Absolute HEAVEN. I can’t wait to go back with Andrew and Henry for a longer stay.  The homes in this enclave are bananas- almost Truman Show perfect.  A mix of cottage styles with lowcountry charm, I could have moved into almost any of them!

Every inch of the streets was even perfect- prom the street signage to the gas lanterns all over the property.

Some homes had fences covered in honeysuckle that smelled so incredible when you walked by.

And the Spanish Moss hanging from the trees created such a magical feel everywhere you went. As if someone even decorated the trees for you to enjoy!

More charming homes…

One section of the porch and the screen porch with a gas fireplace we lit up in the evenings.

The inn has cottages that are drop dead gorgeous/adorable/perfect too, if you need less spacious accommodations (photo by Meredith Perdue)

BEYOND adorable. The interior was gorgeous too but I didn’t get a shot.

The wedding reception was outside and a mix of blush, white and greenery, chandeliers and raw wood….

Some tables were outside under the palms complete with twinkly lights.  When the professional pictures come in I’ll share some with you too as my shots are sub-par at best!

Come to find out, my FAVORITE house in the village is actually for sale.

So perfect. So it’s not surprised to find out it was featured in Coastal Living.

Chip and Joanna would approve of the shiplap all over. :)

If you have a spare 1.6 million I think this is the perfect investment. :) And then you can rent it out to me for a vacay! Win/win! :)

And Henry was such a good boy on his first big trip. He loved the warm weather and all the excitement. So proud of my little man.
