Right now, we are having the hardest time deciding on a church and reception venue. So we decided to use last weekend as a time to go about town and look at a few more places.
We’ve decided to get married in Charleston.
We’ve narrowed it down to two churches:
The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is our favorite, but you can get married no later than 2pm there.
…or St. Mary the Annunciation, the oldest catholic church in the Carolinas and Georgia.
We don’t love the looks of this church as much, but at St. Mary’s, we can have a late afternoon or evening wedding, which is our preference.
So which one? The church we think is breathtaking, but will only allow us to get married at 2pm? Or the church that is full of rich history that will allow us to get married up until 6pm, which is what we would love? We are willing to sacrifice the better time for the better church, but then again, they are both gorgeous! What do y’all think?
Okay, now for venues. These are our two favorites.
Patriot’s Point Pavilion
Of course these are all iPhone pics. Here is one of the inside of the tent. Keep it mind that it is obviously not set up for an event!
Here are two professional photos by Juliet Elizabeth of the venue.
But what about the weather?? What if it’s raining cats and dogs?
So we decided to look at an indoor venue, too.
This is the clubhouse at Daniel Island Golf Club.
…again, NOT decorated for any event!
Below is the foyer/bar area
and now for some professional photos:
This venue has that swanky, southern sophistication. The other one (Pavilion) has gorgeous views and is a better location in relation to the churches.
They are both right around the same price.
HELP! I need your opinions!
