The soft scent of summer flowers. The caressing breeze. June is wedding season. And there’s no better place for a wedding than the Low Country…. as travel guides and wedding planners nationwide agree. One of the country’s top wedding destinations, Charleston boasts a whole range of deliciously diverse venues, ranging from offbeat (the Gibbes Museum of Art) to stately (historic landmarks like the William Aiken or Legare Waring houses). Intimate, sophisticated, indoor, outdoor – Charleston has it all.
