As a newbie to the Charleston board, let me introduce myself.
The fiance and I moved to Charleston in October of last year, with the thought of planning a wedding back home in Iowa for when he finishes up school (in the fall of 2012!) However, these past 7 months have been fantastic, and we decided we would rather have a smaller wedding here with our closest family and friends where we could share our love for Charleston with them.
We recently decided that since this spring has been so beautiful, we would like an April wedding (in 2012). I realize that is still a ways away, but we want to get started planning. We both want a wedding/reception near or on the water - either the Charleston harbor or out on Folly Beach. We don't want anything too formal as that's just not us. Any suggestions for venues?
Sorry this is so long, but I look forward to getting to know you all more!
