Where is Edisto Beach located?

Edisto Beach is located on a remote barrier island off the coast of South Carolina. After crossing the bridge from the mainland, you will wind through salt marshes and under majestic oaks draped in Spanish moss on your way to the beach. Only 4.5 miles long, Edisto Beach is a charming family beach with limited commercialization.

What major towns are near Edisto Beach?

Edisto Beach is only an hour's drive from two beautiful and historic towns - Charleston, SC to the north and Beaufort, SC to the south.

What type accommodations can be found at Edisto Beach?

Beach rentals are available - from the modest to the luxurious! You can also find a delightful assortment of cafes and restaurants, as well as a multitude of nature-based activities. We will provide you all the information in our "Wedding Guide".

When is the best time of the year for beach weddings at Edisto Beach?

Since we believe that every day at the beach is a GREAT day, we perform weddings year round. January and February can be a little "chilly" but the beach is still beautiful and we have performed several weddings during these months!

What happens if it rains on our wedding day?

We strongly encourage you to secure a back-up location (indoors or a covered venue) if the forecast calls for heavy or continuous rain. A list of locations is included in our "Wedding Guide". If the ceremony is held at a back-up site, we will make every effort to ensure that you still have a beautiful wedding. We will set up all ceremony decorations at a back-up site which is located within 5 miles of Edisto Beach. But if you choose not to utilize a back-up site, the wedding ceremony will proceed at the designated beach site!

Are chairs necessary?

Well, that depends on YOU! We recommend chairs for parents, grandparents, and the elderly. For this reason, we include four chairs in all of our ceremonies, except "Sand and Sea". Some couples want more chairs. While other couples are fine with their guests standing in the sand (barefoot, of course!).

Can we provide our own vows?

Of course you can! This is your Special Day and we will do everything to ensure it is exactly as you envision it.

Is a "waiting period" or blood test required to be married at Edisto Beach?

South Carolina does not require either a "waiting period" or a blood test. After we have reserved your wedding date, we will send you a "Wedding Guide" with information on obtaining a marriage license in South Carolina.
